Blue Ridge Parkway Artist is Back on the Cover and What the Heck is that?

I am going to try to modify the cover illustration for Fiddling at Midnight’s Farmhouse.  The publisher said the only way the painting can be cropped is without part of the moon.  I am hoping I can bring it down a little without disrupting the spacing that she has established.  I was hoping it would fit perfectly but it doesn’t.  She is going to have the entire painting in the book for one of the poems.

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

Sometimes I have a real life funny for Clyde.  One of my patrons that purchased two of my Skyline Beauty paintings saw Heart Cloud on Facebook and sent me this message.

What the heck is that?   We both had to laugh.  I certainly don’t mind getting comments like that from a patron!  I always appreciate honest reactions.

I told him he would have to get the book to see how the painting illustrates the poem.

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

Clyde liked the bird jokes I posted last time in honor of his contributions to this section and, of course, he came up with one of his own right after I quoted the others.

 

What did the buzzard say to the grocer?   This meat is too fresh.   Love it!

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

When I started this blog I really didn’t know what to say other than stuff about my artwork which is difficult.  I communicate through pictures, not words.  After a while I just wanted to have some humor so I started this section of the blog.   I thought I would probably burn out and stop trying for funny stuff even though Clyde supplies me with a lot of it without trying.  It is just the way he is.

I am pleased that I keep coming up with funnies here.  Sometimes I do borrow from other sources but I still keep this section going and I think as long as I have a blog I will keep on laughing as I write.

To cease to learn is to cease to live.  Well, to cease to laugh is also to cease to live!

In honor of my main contributor to this section here are some great bird jokes.

 

What did the chicken say to the duck when it was about to cross the road?

Don’t do it.  You will never hear the end of it.

What did one bird with binoculars watching people say to the other bird.

It is a legitimate hobby.

What did the Blue Footed Booby say to his friend about his feet?

Yeah, I wanted black but this is the only color they had that fit.

Got to get to Clyde’s manuscript so I can work on some individual poem illustrations this week.  These will be black and white but I will make them as expressive as the cover.  I still have a little to do on the cover.  Also, got to get a painting mailed and a lot of computer work.  Busy, busy, busy.

My fantastic Yoga Teacher is offering free yoga classes all August at Life in Balance in Christiansburg, VA!  Check it out!  She is a great teacher and yoga has helped me out with some muscle problems.  Yes!!!!!

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

I love my Yoga class!  I am so glad I took up this great muscle stretcher.  A  few years ago I couldn’t touch my toes without bending my knees.  I can now!

I have noticed that my legs look somewhat different since I started Yoga.  The calf muscle that was getting small again after my Skating Rink closed is getting  big again!

This is crazy but my feet look different.  I mentioned to Clyde that they look longer.  He said all the better to kick his butt.  I don’t have to reach as much.

I do not kick Clyde’s butt.  Not once.  Hardly ever. Recognize that WC Fields routine?  If you haven’t seen one of his films, check one out!  They are great! The Gift is my favorite.

Please click on my latest Youtube!

I send out a newsletter every two weeks.  One comes from Fine Art America and the other comes from Mail Chimp.  Mail Chimp is a great service but that monkey really gets on my nerves. 

I don’t know if it is my computer or the site but it seems to stall in certain places so I think I am doing something wrong.  I am learning to just wait and that monkey will stop throwing coconuts at me and come down from the tree and help me out.

Anyway, I got it done yesterday.  Yes!!!!

If any WordPress friends would like to be on my newsletter list, let me know!

Life with The Bird and Word Man – Clyde Kessler

Clyde has wanted me to hear the song of a white eyed vireo and yesterday there was one chirping away in Wildwood Park.  This bird takes notes from other birds and combines them into a song that sounds like, “Quick, give me the beer check.”  The song irritates the other birds.

I told Clyde I knew why it is saying “Quick, give me the beer check.”  One of the loudest most repetitive birds in that park is the towhee which says over and over again, “Drink your tea.”  I think hearing that all day long would make any bird want to say “Quick, give me the beer check.”  I surprised it doesn’t add, “I’m out of here.”

Life with The Bird and Word Man – Clyde Kessler

The upcoming presidential election really has me worried.  I am concerned, as always, that money is deciding the race for the nomination.  Here is a cartoon from 1870 that certainly applies to 2016.  As I have mentioned before, Clyde always says to hold your nose and vote.  Unless things change I will need a space suit this time.

A classic cartoon of William "Boss" Tweed -- the infamous & corrupt New York politician from the 1870s -- as portrayed by Thomas Nast. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thomas_Nast:

Life with The Bird and Word Man – Clyde Kessler

I am having more trouble with my old car that may or may not be a problem.  I keep hearing a strange noise that sounds like some sort of plank that is trying to fall out of the bottom.  It mostly happens when I back the car in or out of our driveway. 

I have started driving Clyde to our park walks to see if he can figure out what it is.  Of course, there is no sound when he is in the car.

He said maybe his big butt is applying so much weight to the car that the sound is being squished.

Clyde does not have a big butt.
