Blue Ridge Parkway Artist Loves Claytor Lake and The Right Shirt....

Got out to Claytor Lake yesterday!  Such a beautiful day for the beach!  There are a lot of good reasons to live in Southwest Virginia but Claytor Lake tops my list!  There were a lot of boats zooming by so the water was very active which is a lot of fun in an inner tube!  I am always so sad when Fall comes and the beach is closed.  I like the different seasons but summer fun is number one!

I don't have a painting of Claytor Lake but here is a favorite from Pawleys Island!

Life with The Word and Bird Man - Clyde Kessler

As I have mentioned before, Clyde and I wear clothes at home that would probably be rejected by Good Will.  We just aren't into clothes and I was flabbergasted to see $400 dollar tickets on summer blouses in New York- and that was the cheap rack!  We spend very little money on clothes and both of us hate to shop so there is no danger of going broke over a huge credit card bill.

I found a great joke shirt for The Bird Man.  He wears a lot of t-shirts and this one would be perfect!  The front of it says THIS IS A CHEEP SHIRT.  Now that says it all!  Tweet tweet!

Life with The Word and Bird Man - Clyde Kessler

As I have mentioned before, Clyde has a lot of dietary restrictions.  There is a long list of things he can't eat and when he began his Fructose malabsorption diet he lost 30 pounds.  He hasn't gained it back but he has found so many substitutions with plenty of calories that he has gained some of it back.

He is being more careful now and paying more attention to calories - something I have done since High School.  It does work! 

Anyway, here is a cartoon in the public domain that I thought was perfect for The Bird Man!

I am finished with the first layer of my cover illustration for Fiddler at Midnight's Farm House so I am going to get back to Pawleys Eve today.  Got to take a break.  There is still a lot to do but I have plenty of time.  Now I have to get some ideas going for illustrations on some of the poems.  Yikes!  An artist's work is never done!

Life with The Word and Bird Man - Clyde Kessler

Three times a week I like to include some crazy thing The Word Man says and sometimes I am ahead of schedule with quips, but today I didn't have anything.  We have been having a lot of political discussions and we are both so concerned over the upcoming presidential election that it is hard to joke about it.

When Clyde called from work this morning I asked him if he had anything funny for my blog and he didn't.  Later he called and said he walked around for fifteen minutes trying to think of something but no funny came to mind. 

Oh well, there was something cute on Facebook the other day.  The caption under a dirty rear view window was, My window is not Dirty.  That's my dog's nose art.  Love it!

Life with The Word and Bird Man - Clyde Kessler

Clyde and I like to walk in Wild Wood Park as much as we can.  I was pleased we got there today.  Often times I bring a bag with my camera and my glasses in case I see a butterfly on a flower that would make a good photograph to add to my wildlife gallery on my website.  I only have a few photographs in that gallery.

I told Clyde to be on the look out for good photo possibilities and he looked puzzled and asked me if I had my camera.

I told him I was always packing.  Camera, not gun, of course.  I have decided that if I don't have my camera Tom Hanks will probably walk right through the park. I wear something with deep pockets and put the camera in one pocket and my glasses in the other one.

He didn't show up and I didn't get a single wildlife photo.  Oh well, back to the easel.  I love all mediums but photography is lowest on my list.  I do have some good ones, though.

Life with The Word and Bird Man - Clyde Kessler

Before I tell this story, I need to say we live very close to the Fire Station.

Tuesday, I finally figured out something on Youtube that has been driving me crazy!  I have such a hard time with that site.  I will always remember the time our young computer friend couldn't help me with one problem and I finally figured that one out!  Proud day!

I was so excited that I ran outside to tell Clyde. I told him that after all the time I put in trying to figure it out, my success seemed like such a great accomplishment!

He said a great accomplishment would be to see the computer soaring over the Fire Station, gaining acceleration, and landing on Pluto without any assistance from NASA.

Clyde doesn't like computers.  No kidding!  Right?
