Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

So glad  Zippy the Wonder Mouse is working again!  Clyde said it may just need a new battery. That was it.  I guess that is why it was zooming all over the screen in places I was not pointing to.  It was looking for something to eat.

I know that is ridiculous, but with all my computer adventures it is hard not to think of it as a living creature determined to irritate me within an inch of my sanity.

Oh well, one computer problem at a time. I do believe in evil spirits in the kitchen.  I now have proof.  I placed the one grocery bag with the eggs and light bulbs on the table where there was plenty of room.  When I got back with another bag, it was on the floor with a broken bulb.

Now you know that was some sort of Irritation Demon determined to ruin my day. LOL!

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

As I have mentioned before I have switched to organic food for the most part.  It won’t keep us from dying but I think our chances of getting cancer from pesticides is greatly reduced.  Not afraid to die.  Terrified of cancer treatment.  Anyway, I bought an ice cream and yogurt machine because I can’t find organic frozen yogurt in the store.

There are great selections for organic ice cream but none for frozen yogurt.  Since I make our bread now, I didn’t really want to do this but I thought I would give it a try.  These devices are great but there is still a lot of work involved, especially with the yogurt maker.

The yogurt has to soak for 2-4 hours on a cloth and then ingredients have to be cooked on a stove and frozen over night.  The machine just kind of shakes it around and then, of course, there is clean up. Anyway, most of the ice cream selections are twice the number of calories of what is in the store.

I tried the lowfat strawberry yogurt and am not happy at all.  I guess it has to be eaten right after it is made.  I froze it and now it takes a chisel to get it out of the container.  Yuck!  The fruit is crunchy with ice and I don’t like the taste at all. I have to leave it out for a full hour before it is soft enough to get out of the box.  Can’t heat it up.

Clyde said I should put it on a rack and buy a bunsen burner.

Ha ha.  I think I will take my chances with store bought frozen yogurt , smart alec.

There is a great joke on the internet about cultured bacteria.  The two bacteria are discussing different operas and which one is the best.  Love it!

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist is Reading Poetry and Glow in the Dark…


Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

Please click on my latest Youtube!  I will have another one soon!

I am enjoying Clyde’s manuscript.  He really is a great writer and a lot of the poems remind me of the Spoon River Anthology.  When I was in High School the Drama department presented a show of readings from that anthology.  We all thought it was great!  Clyde’s new book Fiddler at Midnight’s Farm House is based on his experiences growing up on Ferrum, VA.  and will be published by Cedar Creek Publishing Company.

My fantastic Yoga Teacher is offering free yoga classes all August at Life in Balance in Christiansburg, VA!  Check it out!  Mims is a great teacher and yoga has helped me out with some muscle problems.  Yes!!!!!

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

More dietary quips.  As I have said before, we try to eat organic as much as possible but you can’t always find what you want.  I have reason to believe that all the pesticides in our food are causing illnesses, including cancer.  I am not afraid of dying but I am scared to death of chemotherapy so I spend extra in the hopes of avoiding cancer.

Well, I love mint chocolate chip cookies once in a while and I can’t find organic ones so I get the regular ones.  I told Clyde I hoped they weren’t too bad for me.

He said as long as you or the cookies don’t glow in the dark, you are probably safe.

I ate one in the dark.  So far, so good.

Got to get to Clyde’s manuscript so I can work on some individual poem illustrations this week.  These will be black and white but I will make them as expressive as the cover.  I still have a little to do on the cover.  Also, got to get a painting mailed and a lot of computer work.  Busy, busy, busy.

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

I love my Yoga class!  I am so glad I took up this great muscle stretcher.  A  few years ago I couldn’t touch my toes without bending my knees.  I can now!

I have noticed that my legs look somewhat different since I started Yoga.  The calf muscle that was getting small again after my Skating Rink closed is getting  big again!

This is crazy but my feet look different.  I mentioned to Clyde that they look longer.  He said all the better to kick his butt.  I don’t have to reach as much.

I do not kick Clyde’s butt.  Not once.  Hardly ever. Recognize that WC Fields routine?  If you haven’t seen one of his films, check one out!  They are great! The Gift is my favorite.

Please click on my tell all Youtube!

We had a great time visiting relatives and now I am again parked in front of this Trojan Horse.  Spammers to the right of me, spammers to the left of me.  I am just trying to reach nice people and especially nice people that like Art!

My sister has a daughter-in-law that plays the violin and the piano.  I had a great time talking to her!  I played some Satie for her and she played a theme song from a popular movie. 

My mother was a fantastic pianist but can’t play any more.  I am so sorry she never recorded her music.  I really do live to paint but I play my piano every day.  Love all the arts!

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

Clyde has noticed a little weight gain in spite of his restrictive diet.  We certainly have found a lot of subsitutes but he isn’t as thin as when he started his Fructose Malabsorption diet.

He can eat ice cream if it doesn’t have high fructose corn syrup in it.  I buy organic chocolate chip for him and he has it almost every night in spite of the jello I usually have in the fridge.

I mentioned to him the other day that I am going to start making more pudding.  The ice cream he eats has 200 calories per tablespoon.  No wait, 200 calories per teaspoon!

He didn’t buy it.  He doesn’t count calories like I do but he has some knowledge of what is in what.  Oh well.  The pudding does have a lot less calories so I will get in there and make some.  When there is pudding, he picks that over ice cream.
