I was able to spend time at the lake yesterday!  Finally, no rain!  My guys are planning to go with me this Wednesday if the weather is good.  Looking forward to it!  Summers go by so quickly.  We have to seize the beach!

Life with The Bird and Word Man - Clyde Kessler

Clyde and I spend a lot of time on the computer but not a lot of time on our phones.  I went from the simplest type of phone without camera, internet, etc., to a smart phone.

I have had so many problems with my phone.  The other day my sister called and it didn't ring.  She wrote me on Facebook that she left a message.  When I checked, the phone had a message but then when I tried to find it, it disappeared.

I told her on Facebook to try again. When the phone rang, I pressed the button and the end call button lit up so I let out a four letter word.  Then I heard my sister say hello and wondered what the four letter word was about.

My smart phone is way smarter than me. Clyde says for us the phone is a new four letter word - fone.

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist is Not getting to the Lake Today and Now they are Teenagers...

 

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

Please click on my latest Youtube!  I shoveled out my studio so I could film this without tripping!  I am very proud of this one! 

https://youtu.be/5k77zseKBEc

I have been trying all week to get to the lake but the weather is not cooperating.  I had all my stuff in my bag, ready to go, and it started to sprinkle.  I can still walk in my studio so today would be a good day to get some more work done but I would rather be swimming.

Life with The Bird and Word Man - Clyde Kessler

Like most people, we have two cars. They are getting old.

One of them is thirteen years old and the other one is seventeen.

I mentioned to Clyde that our cars are now teenagers.  I hope we brought them up right.

He said they would probably just drive off and leave us for good.


Or fall apart.  I am betting on the latter.  They are starting to hobble along.

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist iwas Headed to the Lake and Another Candidate!

 Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

Please click on my latest Youtube!  Hope to have another one up soon!

 https://youtu.be/bpRx_D1iHCQ

I got up early to get things done so we can all go to the lake this evening but it sure is cloudy out there.  My weather man husband says this will probably be a good day but I have my doubts.  

 Still so much to do but I will be ready.  Love to swim!

Started raining right when Clyde came home.  Oh well.  Maybe tomorrow.

Life with The Bird and Word Man - Clyde Kessler

Every day I read articles about the upcoming presidential election and I don't know if I am reading fact or fiction . As Harold Walowitz from The Big Bang Theory once told Raj.  "Grow up Raj, there is no room for truth on the internet."

I like to ask Clyde what he thinks about all the stuff I see about the candidates as he really  keeps up and is good at dividing fact from fiction.  So far, I am not happy with what I am hearing from him.

In another post I mentioned the candidate he thought we should vote for.  He said we should write in Scooby Doo.

He has since changed his mind.  Now he  thinks we should vote for the Pink Panther.  At least the Pink Panther comes with a good theme song.

As usual, he is right.  Who doesn't like the Pink Panther theme song?

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist is Pleased to Sell a print of Contemplation and A Privilege?

 Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

Please click on my latest Youtube!  I will have a new one up soon!

I am real pleased to sell a framed print of one of my favorite Dream paintings, Contemplation to a great Virginia patron!  I live to paint and sometimes  paintings show up in my dreams.  I have painted a number of them and they are in my Dreamscape Folder on my website.  Here is the link!

Life with The Bird and Word Man - Clyde Kessler

Today as we were coming back from the park there was a tail gator about to kiss our bumper.  This car had very dark windows, so, as usual, I complained about dark windows.  I think it is my right as a motorist to know whether or not other drivers are awake when driving near me.

Also, as usual, Clyde had something to say about driving rights.  Much to my surprise we all have a constitutional right to carry a gun but a driver's license is a privilege. He was born in August so when we got home he showed me the renewal form and sure enough, it does clearly say privilege. 


I guess we should all carry a gun but not all of us are allowed to drive.  I know a lot of people think that if we all had guns that would solve the mass shooting problem, but I think if we all have guns the terrorists will just start heaving bombs.

I am not going to carry a gun or a bomb but I would like car windows to be clear.

Life with The Bird and Word Man - Clyde Kessler

I have been racking what is left of my brain and thinking of things Clyde has said lately and not a funnie in sight!  Nothing good on Facebook either.  I guess I will just have to declare June 17th 2016 No Funnies Day.  Maybe I should give Clyde a call and see if I can goad him into a good quip.  On no!  He must really be busy.  Can't get an answer.

Oh well!  Maybe tomorrow.  I can at least post some great Blue Ridge Discovery News.  Cheers!

Tonight is the Blue Ridge Explorers Club Full Moon Hike.

Life with The Bird and Word Man - Clyde Kessler

Clyde starts his day at 4:30 a.m.  I start my day, usually at 7:30 a.m., sometimes earlier.  Clyde calls me at 7:30 to make sure I am up so I can take Alan to work.

Since I know it is he that is calling, I like to say silly things when I answer.  Yesterday I used one of my favorites.  "Who dat?"  He replied "Ain't Much, over here with Uncle Nothing."

One of these days someone will call me very early and I will probably be very embarrassed.  My phone tells me the number but I don't always look.

Oh well.  Like Lucy of The Peanuts comics once said, " If you watch out for every word that comes out of your mouth, you won't ever get much said."

Yes!
