Blue Ridge Parkway Artist's Latest Blue Ridge painting and Claustrophobia...

There is hope for this extremely computer challenged lady.  I just have to remember that computers do not always do what you tell them to. I was complaining how I followed the instructions on how to add a twitter list and nothing happened.

Well last night I did exactly what I did the other time and this time it worked!  A computer is a machine that thinks and sometimes it thinks it isn't going to help me.  I guess it gets over the tantrum and decides to let me get something done.

It is a little like taming a difficult dog.  Nice doggy, nice doggy!  Come , sit and I will give you a treat.  Nice computer, nice computer. Do what I ask you to do and you won't be thrown out the window.

 Life with The Word and Bird Man - Clyde Kessler

As always Clyde plays with words.  He has a new one that is rather strange.  According to the Word Man the true meaning of claustrophobia is fear of Santa Claus.  Now that is different. When I asked him why this definition since people love Santa Claus.  No one is afraid of him.  He said just go to a mall at Christmas time and observe the crying toddlers dumped into a strange man's lap all covered in white and red.


He certainly has a point there!

I try so hard to work on computer stuff that will help me out of all the extra work that I would rather not do, but, as usual the computer is fighting me.  I followed the directions to the letter to add a list on Twitter so I can add people to the list and cut down on all this retweeting.  The list is not there after three attempts.   My computer is up to date.  I just added the latest update and still the computer hates me.  Aarghhhh!!!!!!

 Life with The Word and Bird Man - Clyde Kessler

Clyde and I work hard at our art.  I paint every day and he writes every day.  I intend to keep on as long as possible.  I hope I will die with a paint brush in my hand.

The other day I saw a wonderful quote.  A famous opera singer in his nineties was asked why he was still singing.  He said because he was making progress!  Yes!!!!!

 Life with The Word and Bird Man - Clyde Kessler

Most of the time, even when it is hot, I wear pajamas.  If I don't, after a while I wake up and have to put them on.  My temperature seems to change a lot during the night.  Clyde says the same thing.

There is a great funny on Facebook that cracked me up!  The cartoon is of an apartment fire and someone backing down the fire escape with out any clothes on.  The caption reads, "Good reason to always wear pajamas!"

I think it is time to step away from the computer again.  My left eye is red and I guess it is from too much computer screen.  It doesn't hurt but it looks awful.  I put eye drops and hope it gets better soon.  I will try to get everything done soon and get off.  Cheers!

 Life with The Word and Bird Man - Clyde Kessler

I saw something on Facebook that must be a joke.   An African American is holding up a sign that says, Mothers should not have to worry that their sons will be killed every time they rob a bank.  The person holding the sign is not smiling and looks quite serious.  Clyde says it is a joke.  I guess I am foolish to think that it might not be a joke but nothing surprises me.

Blue Ridge Parkway is Going to Figure This out and Smacking...


 

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

Please click on my latest Youtube! Hope to get to another one soon!


http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dm66MT9Xe8M


I fight with my computer all the time.  I have mentioned many times that it hates me but I am determined to get things done in spite of this helpful but irritating machine.

I now have artwork on the popular site Wanelo.  I have made a number of mistakes in my listings so I use the trash button to eliminate them.  They are not on my page but if I put my name in the search they are still there.  In the help section that question is not there.  I guess I will have to contact them.  Hope I can figure it out on my own.

Regardless, I am working real hard so I can get to the lake this afternoon!  That will put a smile on my face!

Cheers!

 Life with The Word and Bird Man - Clyde Kessler

I am amazed at the number of phobias that are listed on the internet.  Since it is the internet I can't be sure they are true but they are there.  Fear of sitting and fear of mirrors are the two that fascinate me the most.  They have fancy names but I don't want to look them up right now.

Anyway, Clyde and I were discussing them on our walk yesterday and he came up with a great one.  Smackaphobia- fear of being smacked by someone.  That definitely should be added to the list!

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist, Second Stage of Rolling Beauty, and After Only Two Days!


 

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

Please click on my latest Youtube!


http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dm66MT9Xe8M


Working on the third stage of Rolling Beauty and am not real happy with it.  I am going to take a good look at the first stage before I go any further.  In the process of pulling out the forms and adjusting color I seem to be losing some of the energy of the piece.  Art really is a crap shoot.  Right now I will claim victory and retreat until I can get into a better frame of mind.

Life with The Word and Bird Man - Clyde Kessler

The Word Man doesn't have a funny today but I know he will have one soon.  He isn't trying to come up with funnies for this blog he just naturally cracks me up all the time.  Anyway, I had to show him this great joke on Facebook.  Got a lot of likes for this one.

Two side by side pictures of a guy with a huge pot belly.  The only difference is in the second one the guy does not have his glasses on.  The caption reads In Only Two Weeks Robert Lost His Glasses!

Line Dancing was great last night!  I finally got the hang of one that is rather difficult - at least difficult for me.  We had a good sized class and Tuesday the 25th we will be performing at the Train Station in Pulaski, VA!  Come on out!  We always have one easy dance we invite the audience to try with us!  Lots of fun and The Farmers Market has great stuff there!

Pleased to sell a print of Isle of Palms Sunset to a great Minnesota patron!  Love the shore and wish I could visit more often.  South Carolina has gorgeous beaches!

Life with The Word and Bird Man - Clyde Kessler

Clyde and I kid around a lot but I do have the greatest respect for my Poet/Naturalist husband and here is a link to his latest publications.  If you want to know more about the Word and Bird Man, just put his name in Google!  Lots and lots of great stuff about him!


http://mysticnebula.com/

The other night we were talking about whales.  I have always been fascinated by the shore and marine life.  One of my favorite films is Blue Water White Death which was a documentary on the great white shark.

I said to Clyde that I saw a whale once off the Delaware coast when I was eighteen.  He said that was nothing, he would be seeing one in a few minutes.  He was about to take a shower.  Okay so he isn't as skinny as when we were first married but he is certainly isn't whale size.  LOL!
