Wow!  I am always complaining about lack of time but when there is a family emergency the time really gets shot out of a cannon! This can’t be Thursday!  What happened to that awful Monday that got worse on Tuesday and horrible on Wednesday. 

My husband’s food poisoning turned into  a much more severe problem that we had to go to the emergency room about.  They were about to keep him overnight when they managed to get his heart rate down so I brought him home to a lot of medical fun.  As Snoopy once said in the great comic strip, “My mind reels with sarcastic replies. 

Anyway, he is better but has to pretty much stay in bed for a while which is the next thing to torture for a naturalist. 

Oh well, he is on the mend and that is great!

The patron for my latest commission came by yesterday and was very pleased with the painting and also with many of my other paintings.  He is interested in bringing his wife by and selecting others.  He also has some reverse glass paintings that he would like me to restore.  Great visit with a great patron!  He brought a friend that works with him in his business and he had many compliments on my work! I don’t have the painting on my website for prints yet but it will be there soon.  I am officially cheered up and looking forward to Line Dance class today!

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

The other day I had so much to do that I just didn’t want to get the evening dishes done.  I had already done dishes earlier and many other things so I just stared at them.  I told Clyde that even though it was freezing outside he would have to put up with a few minutes of cold while I heaved the dishes out the front door. 

A cat may try to lick one and get it’s tongue stuck. 

That is a chance I will have to take.  Maybe I will hit a few of those ground hogs that converge on our property. 

Not a chance. They are hibernating under the shed next door and laughing about the times they have eaten all our apples. 

Well, put on your sweater because here I go!  The dishes will fly!

I Think I am Clicking my Left Hand into a Claw…


 

Please click on my Youtube and send it to Stumbleupon!  I put this one up a while back but recently discovered my voice could not be heard.

 

I spend so much time typing and clicking that my left hand is a little stiff from it.  My third and fourth fingers seem to want to curl in.    I think it would be great if we could just talk to the computer. I guess that is next!

Radford City Ghost Story

 

I had no idea there were so many ghost stories in Southwest Virginia!  Here is another one!

A Former employee of Macados on main street in Radford wrote about a ghost story in 2005.  The restaurant is modern and beautifully decorated on the outside but there is an old basement section with two pantries.  In one section there is a window with glass that is not visible from the outside.  The restaurant was once  The Radford Veterans of Foreign Wars.

Supposedly there is a woman dressed in grey in the downstairs section and employees are told not to talk about her.  Articles fly off the shelf at times and one cook says he did actually see her.  They were face to face and then she faded away!

 

I got this ghost story from ghostvillage.com

 

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

My husband is really tearing up the publishing turf these days!  He just published two poems in the online magazine Rose Red!  This is the third issue of this publication that he has had work in!  Yea Word Man!

It is an interesting coincidence that one of the poems he published is about ghosts since I have been having a great time researching local ghost stories!

A Mount Juliet Ghost
Clyde Kessler

An old lady drowned in Nashville.
She was almost ghost of the year, blind.
Somebody heard a twanging in the oaks
and said she’s home by the soul’s voice
dreaming a tree that walks through stars.

None of a moonrise’s gold could fetch
her mind in a séance. A photographer
leased her apartment above a salon,
threw his best camera at a cop car,
it struck and killed a deputy by no luck.

You see vengeance spelled with a flood
is still the soul prying itself from hate.
You can build a new house in Mount Juliet.
You can throw parties that marry you off
imprisoned. The old lady walks you home.

Near Pandapas is another beautiful section of the woods near the pond in Gile County.  When I was a kid I spent much of my time in the woods or at creeks and I especially liked to pull on vines like the one you see here.

This is a home in Christiansburg that caught my eye every time I passed it so I decided to make a painting of it and the field next to it.

 

Radford New River Ghost Story

 

I am amazed at the number of ghost stories in The New River Valley.  I am a very skeptical person and don’t believe in mediums or psychics but I do enjoy reading about these various sitings and what people report to be supernatural events.

Here is another Radford City one.

 

In the Online Ghosts of America a Radford resident reported seeing a man walk out to the middle of the lower section of  the New River Trestle in Radford but before he hit the water, he vanished.  There was no splash and the viewer thought it was a trick of the eye but he has found others that saw the same thing.  He would like to know if there was a suicide off this bridge that is being repeated in spirit form.

 

Life with the Bird and Word Man – Clyde Kessler

 

I have been painting in oils since I was twelve and I couldn’t imagine my world without paint.   Winston Churchill once said something similar about how he couldn’t imagine a world without paint.

Even though I live to paint, I haven’t met the medium that I don’t like and my portfolio has a wide selection of different ones.

A year ago I decided to add photography to my lost list of mediums and my husband has assisted me in photographing wild flowers in the local parks.

Saturday I photographed the first floral signs of Spring at Wildwood Park.  While we were there, a friend showed up and found a ring neck  snake.  I have always been fascinated by snakes so I took some pictures for my blog. Here is the best one.raysnakebig
