Please click on my latest Youtube!

Great performance at a Retirement Home last night!  We stayed right together and put a lot of energy into the dances.  The audience was sweet and attentive!  We will be back there for a Christmas Dance!  Time to get ourselves to a club now with a live band!

Here is my latest Ying Yang interpretation which is perfect for the day after a Line Dance Performance.  I think this one has a party spirit!

Life with The Bird and Word Man – Clyde Kessler

The Bird Man is looking forward to the Bioblitz this weekend!  Check out the information and join this great environmental effort!

Rocky Knob BioBlitz September 18th/19th, 2015

The Blue Ridge Parkway will soon be holding its first BioBlitz in almost 15 years and would love to have you join us for our next one. A BioBlitz is a 24-hour biological inventory of a designated area conducted by people with a wide variety of specialities and experiences. BioBlitzes have been used on the Parkway and elsewhere to get a better idea of what plants and animals are at a site, and to allow site managers to better manage these important natural resources.

 Our job is to protect the natural resources in our park. Unless we know what’s out there, it’s awfully hard to protect it. Your species lists will tell us what we have and what to be concerned about.

 

 It will be fun!!! Normally fun isn’t supposed to be a justification for a scientific endeavor, yet we’re looking forward to getting in the field with old acquaintances and making new friends. What could be better than walking through the woods with fellow naturalists looking for plants and animals?

 

The BioBlitz will begin at 2:00 p.m. on Friday, September 18, 2015 and continue until 2:00 p.m. on Saturday, though people are welcome to begin anytime Friday morning if they are want to get an early start. On-site registration will start at noon at the Rocky Knob Picnic Area pavilion at Milepost 169. Activities for schools will also begin Friday morning. We will hold the BioBlitz rain or shine.

The BioBlitz will be held in and around Rock Castle Gorge in the Rocky Knob area of the Parkway near Floyd (VA). The approximately 3,600-acre site is located along the Parkway between Milepost 165 near Tuggles Gap and Milepost 174 at Rock Castle Gap. This area includes mature second-growth forests, seeps and streams, wetlands, successional forests and agricultural fields.

We are inviting specialists, naturalists and nature lovers to join us for all or part of the 24-hour, 2-day event. Participants will be provided a map and information about the area and then set free to inventory anywhere in the site. There may be opportunity for non-specialists to join specialists with their fieldwork.

) Do not travel alone! Let someone know where your group will be and when you will get back.
) Only park vehicles in safe locations off of roads and be sure to follow all traffic laws. Pull out of the

way for faster moving vehicles.
) Use care hiking on slippery and uneven surfaces. Do not exceed your capabilities. ) Watch where you place your hands if you search crevices rocks, under logs, etc.
) Carry a first-aid kit and other safety gear with you.
) Weather can rapidly change at this time of year; be prepared for inclement weather.

It will help the Blue Ridge Parkway manage its natural resources.
It’s a great chance to meet face-to-face with people you’ve talked to on the phone or whose publications

you’ve read. Spend the day with your colleagues. Develop new personal and professional relationships.
It’s a chance to learn something about your local area. There’s more to the Parkway than just the road!

Come on out and see what’s out here!

 It will be fun!!!

Please turn in a list of what you find, or let us know when you plan to share your findings, before leaving the BioBlitz. Information we would like are species names, locations where they were found, numbers observed, etc. We will happily accept copies of photographs of what you find. Collecting any specimen is only allowed with a permit issued by the Blue Ridge Parkway. Please apply for permits early https://irma.nps.gov/rprs/Investigator/Index . We will have a closing session at 2:30 Saturday afternoon where everyone can share their findings.

Registration can be completed ahead of the event at http://goo.gl/forms/RC9F4fOnVs . Or you can register on-site at the Rocky Knob Picnic Area pavilion at Milepost 169 beginning at noon on Friday. Contact Bob Cherry, Blue Ridge Parkway Wildlife Biologist, by email at Bob_Cherry@nps.gov if you have any questions.

The Blue Ridge Parkway, in linking the Shenandoah and Great Smoky Mountains National Parks, is dedicated to enhancing the outstanding scenic and recreational qualities of the corridor that it traverses; conserving unimpaired its significant natural and cultural resources, and promoting in perpetuity the public enjoyment and appreciation of the central and southern Appalachian Mountains.

Blue Parkway Artist can easily get out of a Chair…


Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

The Country Line Dancers are at it again!  We will be performing this evening at another Assisted Living Center!  We perform at many different locales but the Retirement Home ones are special. 

The other day I watched a poor elderly woman struggle to get out of a chair.  I was going to help her but I thought I had better not.  She didn’t ask for help from the staff and probably wanted to do it by herself. 

Performances at Retirement Homes always make me appreciate all I have right now.  I try hard to be thankful each day since the day will come when simple actions are very difficult. I hope to keep  on painting, playing the piano, and dancing until I drop! 

Cheers!

Please click on my latest Youtube!

I can’t believe one of us is already sick!  Too soon!  The weather is beautiful and we are very careful to wash our hands, etc. but Clyde has a nasty bug with fever and congestion.  The fever is down and he has taken a decongestant.  Hope it is just a cold and goes away soon.

Please click on my latest Youtube!

I made it to Line Dancing on Thursday but on the way home from the lake yesterday my car cut off twice!  Luckily I was going slow. 

I made it home but I am not driving it until it is checked on.  It may be time to say good bye to this one. 

I hate to do that but that is the way the car croaks!

 Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

I like to read bumper stickers.  I don’t have any on my car but I do enjoy the ones I see.  The other day I saw one that said, “Went on a diet for thirty days.  I lost thirty days.”  Clyde’s addition was- and gained ten pounds.  I’ll bet I see one like that someday soon!

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist is Dancing Today!


Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

The greatest Car Repair Service in the world checked out my transmission problem yesterday.  The guy is pretty sure the fluid was just low.  He will be back on Wednesday to get the oil changed and check further. 

Yes, he will be back!  These great mechanics come to your home and take the car with them and bring it back when it is fixed!  Can’t beat that!

 

Line Dancing, here I come as soon as I can step away from the computer!  Cheers!

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist Didn’t Get to Dance, New Ying Yang paintings, and Only a Click Away…


Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

I can’t believe I had to miss Line Dancing again!  I was on my way and the car did that awful transmission lurch so I turned around and thankfully made it home.  Either the fluid is low or it really is time to replace my old Ford. 

It has been a great car and I hope we can get a few more years out of it.  I hate shopping of any kind but it has to be done sometimes!  Hope we can get it fixed before the  Thursday class. 

Got to dance!

 Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

Clyde and I talk a lot about computers and how they have taken over.  I do appreciate being able to sell my artwork on this so called time saving device but it certainly has its draw backs. 

A lot of really wild things get passed around on Facebook.  Oftentimes serious posts aren’t true.  I sure have seen a lot of death notices that were false. As one of the characters on The Big Bang Theory said to another cast member, “Grow up, there is no room for truth on the internet.”

As Clyde says, “Stupid is only a click away.”
