I am really getting into my Skyline Series!   I keep on finding different ways to approach these city works.  I love architecture and I love color so I am combining some fanciful approaches to established buildings.  Great interpretive work!

Life with The Word and Bird Man - Clyde Kessler

Clyde has come up with a number of funnies that I know I can not print.  Contrary to what he says I do have some discretion and have no intentions of getting into trouble on a blog.

Anyway a friend posted a real cute funny the other day.

One woman asks a friend how she is doing on her diet.

The friends says not so good, for breakfast she had eggs.

The woman says that does not sound bad.

The friends says they were Cadbury eggs.

Clyde hates eggs but he sure will eat Cadbury ones!

Blue Ridge Parkway is Still feeling the Pain, New Skyline Beauty painting, and Two Shakes of a Lamb's Tail

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

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

Please click on my latest Youtube!

In spite of a sore neck I was able to go to Yoga yesterday and the class was full!  Great to see so many people there!  

I just avoided any position that involved turning my neck to the left.  It is still sore.  I still don't know why I woke up Monday with a horrible pain.  

Anyway, it is just about gone.  Yes!!!!

Life with The Word and Bird Man - Clyde Kessler

As I have mentioned ad nauseam I spend a lot of time on the computer promoting my artwork.  I used to run around to galleries which was quite a chore so I really shouldn't complain about all my computer chores, but I do.

I am always thinking about what I need to do and don't want to do and then I am reminded that most of the chores take two shakes of a lamb's tail.

Well, the problem is there are so many chores that I am shaking that lamb's tail all day long.

Clyde said I should watch out.  Peta might come after me.

Ha ha.

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist is Having a Rough Monday and The Nuts and Bolts of Stupid...

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

Please click on my latest Youtube!

Monday is not starting off well. I thought I was working on a draft and instead I typed over yesterday's post.  I decided lateer to put that one back.  Oh well, like my son says, "Mondays and Tuesdays are rough on me."

I am never using the glasses by the computer again.  They fall down my nose so I am always looking up at an angle and this morning I woke up with a sore muscle in my neck.  Ouch!  I have plenty of glasses in the kitchen and now one of those pairs will be here.

Life with The Word and Bird Man - Clyde Kessler

I have been married to the Word Man for so long that I am starting to come up with some humorous sayings. 

I am always baffled with the amount of attention that is paid to small things and not important ones.  I am not going to give out examples for fear of offending someone.

Here is what I came up with.

Attention to small things rather than the big problems in our society is the  nuts and bolts of stupid and that is what makes the world go around.

Clyde had a different ending to the saying but I think I had better not print it.  "World" will do.

Please click on my Youtube! Hope to have another one tomorrow!

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

So glad that whatever bug I have isn't very bad.  Stomach is sore and I have a little congestion but I don't have to stop.  I want to get to the studio when I finish computer stuff.  

I wanted to go swimming this afternoon but I may be contagious so I will stay here.  Plenty to do and I have a great Emile Zola movie for breaks!  What a great author!  I have read many of his novels.

Life with The Word and Bird Man - Clyde Kessler

Since I am trying to stay away from people I haven't been goading Clyde for a joke.  But I saw a great one on Facebook that is right up the Bird Man's alley!

Why do gulls fly over the ocean?  Because if they flew over the bay they would be bagels.

Love it!

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist's New Skyline Beauty Painting, and Napkins?

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7lf8wDz_Dw4

Please click on my Youtube!

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

I hate doctor's appointments.  Who doesn't?  They take a big chunk of time out of my busy day and this time it is the Eye doctor.  That one is always very long due to the drops time.  Oh well, I am glad there are people that are willing to help the rest of us out.  Quite a difficult profession, and oftentimes a thankless one.

My work will wait for me.  I think it likes to pile up, especially in the studio.


Here is my latest Skyline Beauty painting!

Life with The Word and Bird Man - Clyde Kessler

I saw a cute episode of Mike and Molly the other night and something Mike said reminded me of how, in many ways, I am one of the boys. 

When we are home Clyde and I dress in clothes that Good Will would probably not accept.  I have a lot of messed up clothes to paint in.  I hate wearing a smock.

Since we wear junky stuff we don't bother with napkins.

On the show Mike is home with the guys.  No girls.  He brings in the food in the living room, announces what they have , and says, "And if you have a shirt on, you have a napkin".

Please click on my Youtube!

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

So much to do today I am getting dizzy thinking about it.  I often think about Einstein's theories on time and how it can move so slowly for some people. 

My time moves like a rocket and I have to run to get aboard!  The snow sure looks pretty.  Maybe I will escape and walk in it for a little while.  That would be great! 

Winter Cheers!

Life with The Bird and Word Man - Clyde Kessler

Clyde is a mountain man and loves his home.  He has walked up and down these mountains countless times and works hard to educate people about this gorgeous region of Virginia.

After spending two and a half hours shoveling snow yesterday he said, "You know you are getting old when you want to move to Florida even though you hate Florida more than snow.

We aren't moving and he doesn't want to buy a snow blower.  Glad the roads are clear today.

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist is Staring at Snow and A new way to Stop the Munchies!

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7lf8wDz_Dw4

Please click on my Youtube!

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

Wow!  Lots of white stuff out there!  Our street has not been plowed but I can see traffic moving on one of the main roads from my window.  The guys have shoveled the sidewalk twice now and it is still pouring down. 

I'll never forget what my brother did when we were kids.  He would clear off the driveway after about an inch or two had accumulated and then repeat as often as necessary.  That way he was just pushing it off rather than lifting heavy snow. 

Now he has a snow blower.

Life with The Bird and Word Man - Clyde Kessler

 

As I have mentioned before I have fought the battle of the bulge my whole life.  I can't imagine what it would be like to have the freedom to eat anything without gaining weight.

Anyway, I have learned lots of tricks over the years to keep my weight down and I recently discovered a new one that surprised me.

Once in a while I get the munchies and give in and then am mad at myself.  I hate being stuffed.  It ruins the great experience of eating.  It is like I have to over eat once in a while  to remind myself I don't want to do that.

Exercise is supposed to make you hungry but if I choose to exercise when I am about to over eat it actually takes my appetite away! 

Since Clyde is also prone to eating a little too much I told him I had a new way to stop the munchies.

He said," Sew your lips together?  That would probably do it but if you can still eat, then you deserve it."

Smarty pants.
