Beautiful day and I could not be more behind in my work.  Lots of distractions today including two plumber visits.  Our water bill is four times what it should be so the plumber was called to see if there is some sort of leak.

He said no so I guess we will have a city official out to verify what he said.  Then I asked him to fix the little spray nozzle on out kitchen sink.  When he left it sprayed me when I turned on the faucet.  I forget about it twice before the plumber came back.  Glad he came back.  I was tired of getting sprayed. Visit two did the job.

Life with The Word and Bird Man - Clyde Kessler

We didn't catch the mouse yesterday and found out that one of the traps is broken.  When Clyde got up the working trap had a lot of evidence of a mouse around it and the peanut butter was gone.  The mouse had managed to lick it off and not get caught. Clyde said that mouse must have a college degree.

Well, when I got up and looked the trap was upside down with the mouse dead underneath it.  I told Clyde and he said it may have a college degree but it must have failed How to Avoid a Mouse Trap 101.  We figured it just wanted to make sure it got all the peanut butter.

 

Anyway,  bye bye mouse!  If you had just used the Have a Heart trap you would still be around to enjoy this pretty day!

Clyde is getting better and hopes to get to work tomorrow.  I don't know.  The knee is still a pain in the knee so I am not sure he can drive for thirty minutes and then put in eight hours.  Oh well.  I guess he can claim victory and retreat after a few hours.  We will see!

Life with The Word and Bird Man - Clyde Kessler

Once again we have a visitor we don't want.  Lots of nasty evidence of a mouse in the kitchen.  The first one we caught with a Have a Heart trap and Clyde took it down to the river.

The second one was caught in the same trap but managed to get out so we used the killer kind.  I was hoping we could get the third one with the Have a Heart trap, but no luck so we will use the killer kind again.

In this case, a little knowledge is a dangerous thing for this mouse.  It has successfully figured out how to avoid the Have a Heart trap so it will pay for that knowledge.  As Clyde says, the more you know the more it comes back to bite you!  Look out Smart Alec!  You will be bit this time.

It is great to see Clyde getting around without the walker!  His knee still hurts but he is walking, mostly without assistance.  He will see the doctor Monday and hopefully go back to work on Tuesday or Wednesday.

It is nice having him around but I am getting tired of being a caretaker.  It really is hard to put a sock on someone.  I am getting the hang of it.  Oh well. It is a beautiful day and maybe I can get into the studio for a while.

Cheers!

Clyde is doing better each day but this confinement is getting on my nerves and I can't find time to paint so I just wish I could be on one of these rides right now with the beach to stage left!

I am starting to catch up on some of my computer work as Clyde hobbles around the house.  His knee is getting better every day and he should be back to work next week.  That is a whole lot better than six weeks with no weight bearing on that leg!  So glad it was just a tear!

Life with The Word and Bird Man - Clyde Kessler

Clyde and I both have advanced degrees but the other day we both decided we must have degrees in Stupidology.  While he was taking a shower in the bathroom with a shower/tub combo we were talking about how great it would be to have one of those showers that you walk in and sit down.

Then it occurred to me that we could have been using the bathroom in the bed room that just has a shower stall.  We couldn't believe how stupid we had been.  For days he has been painfully lifting his leg over the bath tub when he could have been walking into the shower.

What a couple of Stupidologists!

It is always great to hear from patrons!  The couple that bought Eagle Fire sent me a picture of it in their Montana home.  I think they picked a perfect place for it and I am glad it has a good home.  I will miss that one a lot. It is my favorite painting from my Kendall Expressions series.  I guess it just had to fly the coop!

Life with The Word and Bird Man - Clyde Kessler

Clyde is starting to get his sense of humor back as the condition of his knee improves.  He is just taking tylenol now and the swelling is way down.  He is drinking lots of fluids which, of course, means lots of trips to the bathroom.

He said if he were looking for a job right now all he could put on the resume is able to go to the bathroom.  I don't think there is a call for frequent bathroom visitors.  Unemployment sure would take a nose dive if there were jobs for that!

Wow! Clyde is hobbling around after knee surgery and I am gaining appreciation for Home Health Care workers.  He is great about taking care of himself but there are so many things he can't do right now so he has to call on the reserves  which is, of course, me.

I am having such a hard time getting everything done but that's life.  I am still so happy that he will be well in a few days and not on disability.  The doctor repaired the tear and said his knee looks great!  He doesn't have to use a walker.  Yes!!!!!

 

Also, happy to sell another print of Smith Mountain Lake to a great Florida patron!  I have this one on special at 40% off for a large canvas print! Check out the special below! It ends today!

Life with The Word and Bird Man - Clyde Kessler

Clyde is a great patient but things are not too funny right now.  Every once in a while he turns his leg wrong and has quite a bit of pain.  He is not taking the pain medication, just a very strong form of aleve.  He doesn't want to deal with the side effects of the strong stuff.

Anyway, I did see another cute funny about nurses.  You don't mess with a nurse.  They are paid to stick needles in people.  Love it!
