Well, I am back to my Skyline Beauty series!  I really enjoy this series in acrylics.  I love the way I can achieve a bunch of layers in one session due to the drying time of the paint.  I used to think that was a major disadvantage of acrylics but now I think it is an advantage – at least an advantage for how I paint.  I decided on another view of the Memphis TN skyline and am very pleased with the first stage. 

I may just tweak it and have one listing but I will see what happens when I get back to it.  I was starting with just the center area of the canvas for my Skyline Paintings and then filling it up in the second layer but this time I wanted to cover the whole canvas for the first stage.  I will be painting one more Memphis painting and will probably have two layers that are quite different.

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

Wow! There certainly is a massive effort to convince everyone their teeth should be as white as a piece of tissue paper.  Of course, there are lots of products to buy to achieve super white teeth.  I don’t think teeth are meant to be white as snow.  I knew a girl that had teeth so white each one of them looked like a little flashlight.  Clyde said maybe people should just put a flashlight in their mouth. Then they wouldn’t have to work so hard to get them white. 

I think I will just brush and floss.  They look okay to me.

We are all glad to see the water go back to the New River!  We certainly got by with minimal flooding.  I am glad that I am all paid up on my Home Owners Insurance.  Funny thing.  Well, not that funny but definitely an age thing.  I accidentally paid it twice and when I was going over my statement I discovered the error. I realize that last statement is strange to a lot of people, if not most people. 

I know I can bank online but all this online stuff makes me nervous.  I just don’t think it is safe. I was rather surprised that the company cashed both checks.  I called about it and the local representative said my computer listing has a refund.  Why couldn’t they just send back one of the checks?  Anyway, I need to be more careful but I am glad it has been a very long time since I made that sort of error.  One time I put the amount for my credit card bill on the check for my phone bill.  Of course, they issued me a refund. 

I know I am not alone in saying this age thing is not fun.  I just keep on thinking of the lady in her nineties that performs on a balance beam!  Yes, we can keep going for a long time!

I am real pleased to sell some prints of the second stage of Pawleys Island Atmosphere to a great Va patron!  This time a box of greeting cards was bought!  Don’t forget that my prints are on a number of household items, stationary, clothes, and kitchen and computer accessories!  All the options are at the right of the listing!

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

I look forward to watching Star Trek reruns with Clyde.  They are on the hour before he goes to bed and I can usually goad him into saying something I can use here.

If Star Trek has 400 crew members, how come we only see a few in the bridge and the captain and senior officers only take a few crewmen with red shirts that usually get killed.  Where are the others? 

They are below playing badminton. Most of them are complaining that this so-called five year mission isn’t getting them any lines for them to say on the show.

Love to watch Star Trek with you. 

You are just here writing your blog. 

No, you just wrote it.  Thanks!

Lots of work to do on my new pastel portrait of Alan and Sarah!  It will take a long time but I have been wanting to do one for a long time and I finally got a good photo of them to work from.

So I will put on my mask and get to it like Aunt Bea said to Otis on The Andy Griffith show when she was acting as his warden in their home!  Great show!

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

Not sure, but I think I have mentioned before that people have been telling me for decades that I have lost weight.  I am the same weight I was when I got married with the same measurements so I have often wondered why people are always saying that to me.  I guess I have withered with age.

Just wish they wouldn’t say it with such a big smile.  That implies I needed to lose weight which I don’t think is true.  According to the doctor’s chart my weight is exactly what it should be.  My BMI is on the low end of normal.

Now Clyde is another matter. He is trying to lose some weight to take the pressure off the knee that was injured.  He is losing about a pound a week which is fast enough.  Anyway, he recently received a comment on his weight loss that I have never heard before.  A friend said his clothes are growing on him.

Love it!

I am real excited about starting a soft pastel portrait!  It has been a long time since I worked in pastels.  They are a mess but I don’t have to clean brushes or a palette after each session which is great!  I started today without a mask but will put one on the next time.  That stuff gets in the air and practically asphyxiates me.  You have to really love Art to put up with all the problems.  I certainly do!

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

As I have mentioned a number of times before, we are not at all happy with the digital TV takeover that forced us to get cable or never see PBS again.   We are not about to pay for cable for all three sets, so the TV in our bedroom has a mind of its own and sometimes has a signal but oftentimes does not have a signal and no stations come in.  We have been told various ridiculous things regarding the lack of signal.

My favorite is the amount of leaves on the trees affects the reception.  Lots of leaves right now so nothing comes in most of the time.  Clyde has another theory.  When a chicken clucks in China, our TV won’t come in.  Lots of clucking right now.

I contacted a company in China today that keeps on stealing my images and selling prints of them.  I had lawyers try to get compensation for me but they were not able to do anything about it in spite of the US office the company has.  I didn’t mention clucking chickens to them.  Just wish they would stop stealing my paintings.

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

So glad  Zippy the Wonder Mouse is working again!  Clyde said it may just need a new battery. That was it.  I guess that is why it was zooming all over the screen in places I was not pointing to.  It was looking for something to eat.

I know that is ridiculous, but with all my computer adventures it is hard not to think of it as a living creature determined to irritate me within an inch of my sanity.

Oh well, one computer problem at a time. I do believe in evil spirits in the kitchen.  I now have proof.  I placed the one grocery bag with the eggs and light bulbs on the table where there was plenty of room.  When I got back with another bag, it was on the floor with a broken bulb.

Now you know that was some sort of Irritation Demon determined to ruin my day. LOL!

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

As I have mentioned before I have switched to organic food for the most part.  It won’t keep us from dying but I think our chances of getting cancer from pesticides is greatly reduced.  Not afraid to die.  Terrified of cancer treatment.  Anyway, I bought an ice cream and yogurt machine because I can’t find organic frozen yogurt in the store.

There are great selections for organic ice cream but none for frozen yogurt.  Since I make our bread now, I didn’t really want to do this but I thought I would give it a try.  These devices are great but there is still a lot of work involved, especially with the yogurt maker.

The yogurt has to soak for 2-4 hours on a cloth and then ingredients have to be cooked on a stove and frozen over night.  The machine just kind of shakes it around and then, of course, there is clean up. Anyway, most of the ice cream selections are twice the number of calories of what is in the store.

I tried the lowfat strawberry yogurt and am not happy at all.  I guess it has to be eaten right after it is made.  I froze it and now it takes a chisel to get it out of the container.  Yuck!  The fruit is crunchy with ice and I don’t like the taste at all. I have to leave it out for a full hour before it is soft enough to get out of the box.  Can’t heat it up.

Clyde said I should put it on a rack and buy a bunsen burner.

Ha ha.  I think I will take my chances with store bought frozen yogurt , smart alec.

There is a great joke on the internet about cultured bacteria.  The two bacteria are discussing different operas and which one is the best.  Love it!
