I am working very hard this morning so I can get out to Claytor Lake but the temperature right now is 64 so I may change my mind.  There sure are a lot of reasons why I can’t go a lot of the time. 

Work, rain, and more work keeps me away and the summer is slipping away.  I am all packed in case I do go.  

Here is the final stage of Blue Ridge Magic from Sharp Top!

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

I buy shampoo for both of my guys.  Alan’s shampoo has to say For Men and be in a black bottle.  No girl’s stuff for him.  Clyde could care less so I buy some cheap shampoo that I guess is for everyone but it has a sweet bottle. 

The kind I buy has different labels for different colors and I don’t pay any attention to them but yesterday I noticed the kind I usually buy says Daily Clarifying. 

I asked Clyde if that meant if you use this shampoo you should check every day to see if you still have hair?  If you don’t use it will you lose your hair? 

He said he checks every day and he still has hair so I guess I better check the label and buy that one every time.  LOL!

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

When we were visiting family last week we got into some interesting conversations with my brother who has a Ph.D in Computer Science and was working on restoring some old computers from the ’90s.  I’ll bet he never hits a computer with a hammer.

It is great to talk with someone as knowledgeable as he is about the computer takeover.  He has no desire to get a car that drives itself and he doesn’t want a lot of computer gadgets in a car. 

His comment on computer screens in cars was,

Why would you want a computer screen in your car? So it can distract you and then you die? 

 Here’s a great funny on cars with computer directions.

The author of the windows file copy dialog visits some friends.

I’m just outside town.  Should take fifteen minutes, no wait, six days, no wait, 30 seconds.

So much to do!  Trips are a lot of work.  Lots to do to get ready and then lots to do when you get home. 

The mountain of laundry is the worst part and I can never get good internet reception when I am away so I have lots of computer work to do. 

Oh well, the laundry is done and the studio is almost cleaned up enough for a Monday patron.  A cluttered trail to the easel is not enough when I have visitors.

So now it is computer time. 

Cheers to everyone, especially me!

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

My mouse, I call Zippy the Wonder Mouse because it has been the greatest mouse ever, is starting to act up.  I think it has dementia and it is some sort of selective dementia.  Clyde is not having any problem with it while I am chasing it all over the screen as the day goes on. 

In the morning Zippy is great but by the afternoon  it starts zooming to places I didn’t send it.  Also, some of my emails go directly to deleted as soon as I click on them.  I guess it could be a battery problem but we replaced the battery recently. 

I hope Zippy is not letting me down.  I think wireless is for the birds.

Cute mouse joke! 

A mouse is holding a big piece of cheese and tells his friend that she said he was a little cheesy!

Glad to back to oils and I am very happy with the first stage of my latest Blue Ridge painting!   I love oil paint the best, but I get more uptight when I paint in this medium.  A lot of painters consider watercolors to be the most difficult painting medium.  I can’t agree.  I consider oils to be the most difficult, but I love it!

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

When Clyde and I take walks at Wildwood Park the towhees are always yelling “drink your tea” over and over again.  It is a pretty bird call but it can get monotonous.   The other day  I read in a blog that drinking tea actually fights the bacteria in our mouths which, of course, helps with tooth decay. 

When I told Clyde that, he had a whacko theory as to why towhees keep on telling us to drink our tea.  Maybe they once had teeth and are now telling everybody to drink their tea or else!  Now that’s a weird one, even for The Bird Man!

Rain, rain go away!  We are having a monsoon right now in Radford.  My Line Dance troupe had to cancel a performance last night.  I was looking forward to that one since it is at the old train station in Pulaski and there are vendors that I usually buy from while we are waiting to perform.  Oh well.  I think most of the vendors cancelled too.  We need the rain but we don’t need a weekly deluge.  Hope to see the sun soon!

 

I have decided to take my head out of the sand and interact more with other artists so here is a link to an interesting article on an artist that is really into brushwork like I am! Check out the great artwork of Winston Torr!

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

Sometimes it really is the little things that are super irritating.  I am trying to compose a piano piece just for fun.  I have been playing the piano since I was twelve and it never occurred to me to write music but I thought I would  give it a try.  I can’t believe how slow it is going.  I have always been good at reading music but now that I am trying to write it I can’t remember all the different symbols for the notes in the bass which is crazy, since I read them every day without any problem.

Also, my pencil keeps breaking and our electric sharpener is jammed and the little plastic one just keeps breaking the pencil.  One of these days I will finish my amateur attempt at composing and get it copyrighted.  I’m sure someone will want to steal it.  I would put LOL but Clyde thinks it is a nice piece of music so you never know. He has spent quite a bit of time studying music and has written a few pieces that I like.

I saw a cute pencil joke the other day.  Knock knock,  Who’s there?  A pencil.  A pencil who?  Never mind.  It’s pointless.

Well, my ipad has bit the dust.  The store clerk said you can’t replace the battery.  Once it is gone, that is the end of the ipad.  That is a sorry end for a device I paid a lot of money for and hardly ever used. 

I will try getting a different cable and see if that works but I will probably have to get a new ipad which I doubt I will do.  I will just use a laptop when I need something in my studio.  Time to get in there. 

It really is a dreary Monday, so I need to work so I can cheer up.

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

Well, the cat problem is almost over!  Two of our neighbors wanted a kitten and they got them before they went feral.  There is one left that they are trying to coax away from the mother.  According to Clyde, they are about the age when the mother will push them away so this works out right for the neighbors and the cats. 

Not sure what will become of the mother.  I called Animal Control but they have not responded yet.  Oh well.  The kittens are so adorable that I told Clyde I wished we could have a cat and Alan and I wouldn’t have allergic reactions and the cat would be no trouble and I wouldn’t be the one to take care of it. 

I was waiting for the “Careful what you wish for admonition”, but I got a weird Clyde response instead.  Watch out for what you wish for.   You may need a 42 page document that guarantees the wish won’t bite you! 

That sounds about right.  LOL!
