Time to start thinking about the Beach!


Please click on my Youtube!

 

Time seems to be going too fast right now and I am struggling to get a lot of things done.  The only good thing about time moving quickly is the beach vacation comes around again!  This is the time of the year we start looking into our Pawleys Island vacation in May!   Always glad to start thinking about that!

Flower Life is an impasto floral that has an intricate surface and flowing motion. I am especially pleased with the brushwork in this painting. One of my favorite compliments is that people want to touch my paintings! The colors and textures reach out to the viewer!

Radford Library Butterfly Garden is a painting I did of a flower garden my husband started at the Radford Public Library. The purpose was to attract butterflies into the area. The painting has beautiful color contrast  and a nice flowing motion. 

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

 The other day I saw a very funny but somewhat vulgar poem on Facebook about Winter.  It was only one line and then The End.  I showed it to my poet husband and he joked that was not a Haiku – That was a Lowku!   Love it!

I wanted to walk today but the monsoon rains kept me indoors.  I am so glad there are indoor walking tracks.  The one at the Radford Rec Center is great!  Got to take my walk in spite of the rain!

One More Time!


I finally just deleted my new Youtube video last night.  The anti-shake button never showed up so I am going to try again.  I had to stop the upload because of weather and re-start it so I think that may have been the problem. 

Anyway, it will be up later!

Beautiful view of Radford Virginia’s popular park!

 

Today I came across a very interesting ghost story written by “an old man” according to the writer.  It is intriguing to me that the author has a theory that perhaps we see these things when we are young and more perceptive to what is around us. He has not had a supernatural experience since this story.

As I have mentioned before, I am a skeptical person but I have had four strange events in my life that I cannot explain.  Interestingly enough, the latest one was a few months ago and I am not young by most people’s estimation of what young is.

 

Lunch Bucket Man

The writer’s story happened when he was a student.  He was traveling home to Roanoke via Rt. 81 via Wildwood Road.  Supposedly the Wildwood Inn has quite a spooky reputation. The Inn was closed and he was pretty much the only car on the road.

As he approached the ramp to Wildwood Road he saw a tall thin man holding a lunch bucket, not a pail, but a bucket.  The writer said he had seen that type of bucket carried by coal miners.  When the car lights passed over the man there was no shadow.  He didn’t move or change expression.

He seemed to vanish and the writer tried hard to figure out what had happened but could not come up with a logical explanation.  He has not had a similar experience.  This was in the early 1980’s.

I found this story on Ghost of America online.

 

Life with The Bird and Word Man – Clyde Kessler

The Mount Rogers 40th Naturalist Rally is tomorrow!  I wanted to be sure to alert everyone again to this great event!

The 40th Annual Mount Rogers Naturalist Rally

This BRDC signature event highlights the crown jewel of the Blue Ridge Mountains in Southwest Virginia.  The Mount Rogers area, which includes Virginia’s three tallest peaks, has long fascinated scholars and explorers.  Not only is there a wide variation in altitude, there are many different ecosystems and mini-ecosystems within a short drive or hike of each other.

The 2014 Rally will be May 9 & 10.

Friday Night Speaker –  Nancy Lee Adamson PhD, Pollinator Conservation Specialist – East Region, The Xerces Society for Invertebrate Conservation. An Introduction to Native Bees and Other “Beneficial” Arthropods of the Mid-Atlantic – learn about common native bees we can support by protecting and planting pollinator habitat. The program will highlight nesting habits of some of the 500 species of native bees in Virginia, as well as other pollinators, predators, and parasitoids that benefit from pollinator habitat.

Friday night entertainment – Ronald and Ellie Kirby will be bringing in the evening with some traditional old time tunes.

DOOR PRIZE! – David Richert has offered a free afternoon consultation on forest management as the friday night door prize.
