Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

When computers took over our lives Clyde made the comment that in some ways it is a Trojan Horse.  When you consider the children that have actually committed suicide because of internet bullying, he does have a valid point.

 

They are great in many ways and I doubt I would have artwork in 24 states, Canada, Russia, Germany, Australia, and England if it were not for internet marketing.

Still, Clyde is still not keen on computers, especially since he has to be on one eight hours a day at work.  The other night I remarked how much easier shopping is with a computer and he said he wouldn’t be happy until you can get a pizza shoved at you through the printer.

Now, that would be something!  A little cynical humor to start our days!

Please click on my Youtube!  My husband and I had a lot of fun making this one!  I am hoping to put up a new one today!

 

I am so pleased that two more of my paintings will find their way into homes as prints.  A great patron in Pennsylvania bought prints of these two paintings yesterday!  I have sold a lot of prints but these are the first for these two!  More and more of my portfolio is getting to the public!  Yes!!!

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

Clyde is from Franklin County which, as most people know, is the Moon shine Capital.  Ferrum, Virginia is a very nice place where his great great uncle George Kessler, along with two others, founded Ferrum College.  Still, the county does have a well-deserved reputation for boot legging.

Today when I was looking at other blogs with great photographs it occurred to him that a humorous photographic still could be a picture of two boot leggers running away from the Law that just found their still. 

That certainly gives photographic still a new meaning!  Had to laugh.

Roanoke Ghost Story near The Blue Ridge Parkway and Lives in Forest…


My Artwork

rustysilcopyrightThe Rusty Silo         Original  20″x30″  Pastel Painting     $1230

When my son was little he was fascinated by farms and especially liked to look at silos.  He was always pleased to see The Rusty Silo!

It is no wonder that I keep finding more ghost stories in The New River Valley.  According to  Harper’s Index, the ghost Research Society of Oak Lawn, Illinois Virginia ranks number one among states with the largest ghost population!

 

Some stories come from oral traditions and others are mentioned in books about the area.  Again, I don’t really believe in ghosts but these stories are part of our literary heritage and I love ghost stories!

 

The Woman in Black

In 1902 The Woman in Black terrified Bristol, Roanoke, and Bluefield.  According to newspaper reports her name was spoken everywhere.

One night over 25 people saw her and claimed she was very beautiful!  She never hurt anyone and people believed her to be the wife of an unfaithful husband.

Supposedly her mission was to make sure other men were faithful and would appear to them on occasion.

 

One night she appeared to a wealthy business man walking home after midnight.  She asked him where he turned off which was twelfth street.  She laid her head on his shoulder and he could not push her away.  She said he was not the first married man she had walked home that night.

Two men tried to trip her on a downtown bridge.  One stood at each end but when they got to her, she vanished.

 

I found this story on Hobby Haunted House online.

 

Life with Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

As I have mentioned before, it is great fun living with writer because they are so good with humorous wordplay – or at least the one I married is.

I love to ask him questions that I am almost sure will lead to a crazy comment.

The other night we were watching a Star Trek rerun on TV.  I don’t watch much TV.  I prefer movies when I have the time but it is fun to see those Star Trek characters again!

I asked Clyde what kind of name is DeForest Kelly.  DeForest is such an unusual first name.  He said it is German for lives in the Forest.  Yeah, tell me another one Word Man!  Just for fun, I looked it up.  Lebt in Wald is lives in Forest in German.

PLEASE FORGIVE IF YOU ALREADY SAW THIS POST TODAY   I CAN’T FIND IT SO I THINK THERE IS SOME SORT OF COMPUTER GLITCH

My Artwork

As usual I have had a rough start with WordPress due to the fact that I am somewhat computer challenged.  Oftentimes they don’t make sense to me and I get confused over how different sites are set up.  I started with a post on The Peaks of Otter and thought I had published two but now I see the second one is still a draft so here I go again.

Also, if anyone reading this can tell me how to take my posts out of Peaks of Otter category which is listed on all of them in my posts section, please do!  I’m not sure how that happened but I don’t want The Peaks of Otter to be the category selection for all my posts.

Life with the Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

My husband works on a computer all day long and is much better at understanding them than I am .  We have a wireless mouse at home which drives us crazy!  We regret switching from the attached mouse.  Ours is one rotten little rodent!

Lately it was moving so slow that it took forever to get things done on my website and other sites.  My husband opened it and spent a long time cleaning it.   I thanked him and told him my mouse has wings now!  He said, with a frown, that is a bat.  Oh well.  I will take a bat over that slow rodent any day!

The Mindy Project is Back on The Air!

I am so pleased The Mindy Project is back on TV with a new episode this Tuesday at 9:30pm on FoxTV!
