I am working away on so many things that I keep getting mixed up and have to tell myself what to do next.  I just finished another Youtube so I can get that up soon and I have done a lot of Social Media Marketing but there is always more of that to do.  I can't get to a painting today but I hope to do a few more illustrations for Fiddling at Midnight's Farmhouse before I send all the files to the publisher next week.

I have a Bridal Shower to go to tomorrow so I will have to try to get one done before that.  In a great movie, Mom's Night Out, the main character has a sign on the inside of her cabinet that says Keep Calm and Mommy on.

I guess I need one that says Keep Calm and Art On.

Life with The Word and Bird Man - Clyde Kessler

Commercials, commercials, commercials.  I don't watch a lot of TV but when I do I am overwhelmed with ads.  I especially hate the drug ads with their wonderful advice to ask your doctor if the drug is right for you.  I never go to the doctor unless I absolutely have to and I let him proscribe the drugs, not TV.

Clyde has a great re-write for the one that claims her loss of energy is restored due to the drug.

Before I started doing these commercial I was poor.  Now I am rich and I don't care who buys the drug.

I think that sums it up.

I am real pleased with my latest illustration for Fiddling at Midnight's Farmhouse!  I was going to change it and let Clyde decide between the two for the book but now that I have it online I think I will probably just move on to the next one.

Life with The Word and Bird Man - Clyde Kessler

Clyde liked the bird jokes I posted last time in honor of his contributions to this section and, of course, he came up with one of his own right after I quoted the others.


What did the buzzard say to the grocer?   This meat is too fresh.   Love it!

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist is Getting Them Done and Laugh on...

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

Please click on my latest Youtube!

https://youtu.be/t1GU8CC6e7w  

 

Trying to get a few more illustrations done for Fiddling at Midnight's Farmhouse but I really am getting tired and a little low on ideas.  I will check out some more poems today and hopefully get one done today and one tomorrow.  I will be glad to get back to my Skyline paintings, Kendall Expressions, and my main work of this beautiful area.

Life with The Word and Bird Man - Clyde Kessler

When I started this blog I really didn't know what to say other than stuff about my artwork which is difficult.  I communicate through pictures, not words.  After a while I just wanted to have some humur so I started this section of the blog.   I thought I would probably burn out and stop trying for funny stuff even though Clyde supplies me with a lot of it without trying.  It is just the way he is.

I am pleased that I keep coming up with funnies here.  Sometimes I do borrow from other sources but I still keep this section going and I think as long as I have a blog I will keep on laughing as I write.

To cease to learn is to cease to live.  Well, to cease to laugh is also to cease to live!

In honor of my main contributor to this section here are some great bird jokes.


What did the chicken say to the duck when it was about to cross the road?

Don't do it.  You will never hear the end of it.

What did one bird with binoculars watching people say to the other bird.

It is a legitimate hobby.

 

What did the Blue Footed Booby say to his friend about his feet?

Yeah, I wanted black but this is the only color they had that fit.

There sure are a lot of image thieves on the internet.  One of my paintings is still on a Hong Kong based site.  They are selling canvas prints of it.  They have a US office but the lawyers still couldn't do anything about it.  I know of one artist that just doesn't even do reverse image searches.  He would rather ignore the problem.  I am not giving up.

Life with The Word and Bird Man - Clyde Kessler

I was so pleased with my latest lizard illustration for Clyde's book that I told him how much I liked it before I showed it to him so he wouldn't be sleeping on the couch for finding fault with it.

He wasn't married yesterday and was quite pleased with it.  I think he was sincere so I didn't need to threaten him after all. LOL!

Just for fun I looked up some lizard jokes and found a bunch of great ones!

What do you call a lizard that tells jokes?  A Stand up Chameleon.

What do you call a lizard that sings!  A Raptile.

I mentioned those to Clyde and he came up with one.  What do you call a reptile that wants to succeed?  A Iwanaguana.

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist Files another Infringement Suit and Insomnia for a Week...

 Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

Please check out my latest Youtube!

https://youtu.be/t1GU8CC6e7w

 

 

Well, I guess it is nice to know my recent uploads of illustrations for Fiddling at Midnight's Farmhouse are well received.  I just filed another infringement case.  This time it is for Eye Crater.  I hope the lawyers can do something about it.  So far several of my paintings have been taken down but there is still one on a Chinese site for sale as prints.   Time to send a DMCA notice.

Life with The Word and Bird Man - Clyde Kessler

Clyde is great about giving me the weather report.  I don't keep up so I have no idea what is next.

Last night he said there was a chance of rain during the night.

I asked him if it would keep me awake.

He said if a kid in China drops a coin on the carpet it would keep me awake.

He followed that up with if a bunch of guys at a poker game in China shuffle cards it would give me insomnia for a week.

I would hope for a little rain today to fall on him but he wouldn't care.  He has no problem walking in the rain.

Oh well.  Back to work.
