I am on a roll!  I have completed another Skyline Beauty painting and the first stage of another Suggestion painting! I am especially pleased with the new Chicago painting.  The soft modulation of color really drawings the viewer in. I really do live to paint!

Life with The Word and Bird Man - Clyde Kessler

Clyde has been trying a number of natural remedies for his sore hip and knee with no improvement.  The other day I suggested acupuncture.  He said that was a great idea.  Maybe it will hurt so much he will jump up and run after the person that put the pins in and the pain in his body would disappear!  Okay, no acupuncture.


None of the remedies have worked because the doctor visit revealed torn cartilage in his knee which is causing the pain there and radiating out to his hip.  The hip is fine.  Just pain by association with an injured knee.  He will have to have an operation.

Yikes!  I wonder how much will be covered by insurance.  A couple of dollars?  We can only hope!

I am real pleased with another Suggestions painting.  In this one I started to see drops in all the swirling color so I made them stronger and entitled it Color Drops!

Life with The Word and Bird Man - Clyde Kessler

Everyone is on their phone.  The other day Clyde and I were behind a car that was slowly veering off to the left  on a neighborhood rode.  I slowed way down so I wasn't near the wayward person in case they crashed into a car that was supposed to be in that lane.

A while back I was walking on the Radford Rec track and two girls were walking side by side while staring at their phone.  Not a word between them.

I was told last week that teachers have given up on getting kids to put their phone away.  Now they have some sort of interactive screen that they use with their phones.  Wow!  Glad I retired from teaching.

Anyway, Clyde's comment was an army from another country could invade ours and no one would notice.  Everyone is on their phone.

Still back in my Suggestion Series!  I am going to try to get back to the Skyline Beauty series soon but I really enjoy my excursions into expressionist painting.  I almost always start to see recognizable objects and love pulling them out.  Here is my latest!

Life with The Word and Bird Man - Clyde Kessler

After two days of an irritating virus fight that resulted in yet another purchase of a back up system, I was again complaining to Clyde about the aggravations of living on a computer.

He said he wanted to kill them.

They aren't alive.

They are more alive than we are.

Are you saying the Matrix is coming true?

Been true.  We are already in it.

Uh oh!  That's a scary thought.

I am real excited to be back to my Suggestions Series!  It is great to just react to the paint and see if any recognizable forms show up.  My first one, Serpent Swirl, has already gotten over 100 hits and a lot of attention on Instagram!  The originals of these paintings are not available for purchase but small and large prints are!

Life with The Word and Bird Man - Clyde Kessler

Clyde is still having a lot of trouble with his hip so it is off to the doctor next week.  I hope he can get some help.  I am so glad he is cutting back on sugar since he could stand to lose a few pounds.  There are a lot of fattening things I avoid because I know I could easily put on twenty or thirty pounds if I ate them.

Clyde laughs at the thought that I could get fat.  He says if a calorie shows up I beat it over the head with a brick.  Ha ha. Calorie counting has kept the weight off me my entire adult life.

If every one ate a balanced diet, exercised and counted calories we would not have an obesity problem in this country.  My sermon for the day.  No one listens to me, but it is true.

Need to practice some Line Dances for Saturday.  We performed this last Saturday and now we will be doing it again this week.  Yikes!  We did well .  The audience was great!    I have to travel to Pulaski for class but the class may be moving to Radford soon.  Oh yes.  That would be great!

Life with The Word and Bird Man - Clyde Kessler

I am still looking for my glasses.  I bought a chain and attached it to the pair I keep in the kitchen.  I keep those on top of the fridge.  It is against the law for them to be put anywhere else.  Well, I broke the law and was just about ready to give up when they showed up on my dresser.

I told Clyde. you know you are hopeless with glasses when you lose the one with the chain attached.  Maybe I should put them on in the morning and not take them off until bed time.  Yikes!  I hate reading glasses but I can't do without them.

Just saw a cute joke about eye exams.  Santa Claus is in the chair.  The opthmalogist tells Santa he doesn't care if he puts him on his naughty list, he is still going to dilate his eyes.

Too much to do all the time.  Not looking forward to shopping for a car.  Clyde has pretty much decided which one we should get so we just need to narrow down the details.  I always let him decide on big purchases.  I will always go for  a low price tag.  He buys quality items.  I buy things that will break.  Glad one of us has some buying sense.

Life with The Word and Bird Man - Clyde Kessler

Clyde is doing a little better with his hip problem and the funnies are starting to fly again.  I read about a joint remedy that involves drinking plain gelatin the first thing in the morning.  It is prepared the night before and left out to swell. I'm sure plain gelatin tastes awful.

I told him I would put a cover over it so the rats don't get in.  He said I just wanted to make sure there wasn't any taste to it.  Ha ha. We don't really have rats.  This morning I asked him how it tasted.

He said it was a party. He almost lit candles.
