Well, we aren't snowed in today.  We did get to the store yesterday but it was a creepy crawly ride.  Roads look good today and that is great since I need to get out and check on some stretched canvases.  A patron wants a commission but she would rather not have a frame.  She doesn't want a large painting so I am going to see what sizes are available here.  I don't want to have to wait for an order.  Time to get going.

Life with The Word and Bird Man - Clyde Kessler

We were snowed in yesterday but the main roads looked good enough in the afternoon for us to get to the store.  While I was making out the list I checked on the nut supply.  Clyde eats a lot of peanuts.  We had plenty.  I said to Clyde we have lots of nuts from the store and nuts all over the house. 

Tell me something I don't know.

More discussions on the computer takeover.  Clyde's car pulled a computer problem and that got us talking about cars that drive themselves.  Not for it.  Clyde said what if someone hacks your car and drives you backwards down the interstate!  Yikes!

Life with The Word and Bird Man - Clyde Kessler

We are still without a good supply of hot water.  The main part of our solar system is not fixed so we just have a very small water tank on top that we get a little hot water from.  If we had the new solar system that does not go through water we would most likely have the system fixed and could take a bath instead of a one minute shower. 

I said to Clyde that it is rough when you have an antiquated system. 

He said like me? 

Ha ha. 

Talking about our solar system and if you are antiquated then so am I.

Life with The Word and Bird Man - Clyde Kessler

Tuesday there were about 30 vultures at the end of our street picking through trash.  I told Clyde about it and asked he is had a funny about vultures for my blog.  He has been asked to speak for the vultures since people want to send them away.  They are firing rockets to try to get them to leave.  Where are they supposed to go? 

Clyde hates to get in the middle of this because people that support the vultures become his good friend and those that don't become his enemy.  There is no middle ground.  So he said he could not come up with a funny. 

Vulture humor doesn't fly with me.  He did it anyway! 

Also saw a cute vulture joke.  Keep calm and carrion.  I hope we can carrion here and not send them packing.

I can't believe I am starting a new series of nightmares.  I wish I did not remember my dreams so vividly.  I don't think I will ever stop having nightmares about teaching despite the fact that I did well and received great evaluations- but now I am having nightmares about playing the piano at church. 

I guess I have these dreams because I have very bad stage fright or I am just nuts.  That's okay.  I will keep on playing.  Our former organist said after a while you just play and the stage fright goes away.  Hope so!  Now back to my studio where no one sees me paint!  Yes!!!!

Life with The Word and Bird Man - Clyde Kessler

Clyde is a fan of The X Files.  I never could get interested in it.  The other day I asked Clyde if he thought there really might be some aliens on earth.

Sure, every time I look into the mirror.

Ha ha.

Actually, no.  If there were aliens on earth they would either leave or use some bug spray on us.

I hope they leave.

I am very pleased to sell a large print of Wildflowers Near Fancy Gap to a great Canadian family that sent me such a terrific compliment on my artwork!  A great Ohio patron owns the original.  The Blue Ridge Parkway is such a great place to get ideas for paintings.  These wildflowers caught my eye and I based a very expressive impasto painting on a photograph I took of them. 

Be sure to check out my flower gallery on my website.  I have quite a number of floral paintings that I am very proud of.

Life with The Word and Bird Man - Clyde Kessler

I can't remember if I mentioned before that I do not have an engagement ring.  I am not about to go through all my posts to find out.  Anyway, I don't have one because I didn't want Clyde to put a lot of money into something that I would probably lose.  I can keep up with large things but not small things.  It took a long time for me to realize that most people think the absence of a ring(I did lose the wedding ring) is a definite indication of marital status. 

I decided to buy a $9 fake diamond ring at Walmart so people, especially guys at places where I line dance with my class, would not have any doubt of my marital status.  I have no problem with losing a cheapo ring. The other day I said to Clyde that I really liked the engagement ring he finally got me. 

He said he it was about time I found the box of cracker jacks he bought me.
