Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

Everyone is on their phone.  The other day Clyde and I were behind a car that was slowly veering off to the left  on a neighborhood rode.  I slowed way down so I wasn’t near the wayward person in case they crashed into a car that was supposed to be in that lane.

A while back I was walking on the Radford Rec track and two girls were walking side by side while staring at their phone.  Not a word between them.

I was told last week that teachers have given up on getting kids to put their phone away.  Now they have some sort of interactive screen that they use with their phones.  Wow!  Glad I retired from teaching.

Anyway, Clyde’s comment was an army from another country could invade ours and no one would notice.  Everyone is on their phone.

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

After two days of an irritating virus fight that resulted in yet another purchase of a back up system, I was again complaining to Clyde about the aggravations of living on a computer.

He said he wanted to kill them.

They aren’t alive.

They are more alive than we are.

Are you saying the Matrix is coming true?  Computers are in charge while people just dream their lives?

Been true.  We are already in it.

Uh oh!  That’s a scary thought.

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

Clyde is still having a lot of trouble with his hip so it is off to the doctor next week.  I hope he can get some help.  I am so glad he is cutting back on sugar since he could stand to lose a few pounds.  There are a lot of fattening things I avoid because I know I could easily put on twenty or thirty pounds if I ate them.

Clyde laughs at the thought that I could get fat.  He says if a calorie shows up I beat it over the head with a brick.  Ha ha. Calorie counting has kept the weight off me my entire adult life.

If every one ate a balanced diet, exercised and counted calories we would not have an obesity problem in this country.  My sermon for the day.  No one listens to me, but it is true.

Please click on my latest Youtube!

I am just about ready to do some cart wheels which would be a miracle since I have never been able to do a cart wheel.  Oh well, in my mind I will do them and then dance.  I have sent most of the illustrations for Fiddling at Midnight’s Farmhouse to Cedar Creek Publishing and will send the rest today.  Oh yes!!!  Time to get back to my work.  Lots of ideas!

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

Clyde does not like having a little extra weight and mentions the size of his belly a lot, especially when he is bloated due to his digestion problem.  I tell him he is not fat, just a little portly.  The last time I said that, it triggered some word play.  He asked me if I see a lot of fat clouds do I say it is Portly Cloudy?  Then he added if you say it is Partly Cloudy, which part of the cloud?

 

Life with a writer.  It’s fun.  Here is one I found.  What kind of underwear do clouds wear?  Thunderpants.

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

We are still ranting away about TV commercials.

Last night Clyde got so irritated with the length of the commercial break that he said he could drive to Christiansburg and back before the program returned.

Christiansburg is about a fifteen minute drive from here.  That sounds about right.

Here’s a good commercial joke I found on Google.

The key to eating healthy.  Don’t eat any food that is advertised on TV.

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist is Running in Circles and Commercial Rewrite…


Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

Please click on my latest Youtube!  I will have a new one in the next blog!

 

I am working away on so many things that I keep getting mixed up and have to tell myself what to do next.  I just finished another Youtube so I can get that up soon and I have done a lot of Social Media Marketing but there is always more of that to do.  I can’t get to a painting today but I hope to do a few more illustrations for Fiddling at Midnight’s Farmhouse before I send all the files to the publisher next week.

I have a Bridal Shower to go to tomorrow so I will have to try to get one done before that.  In a great movie, Mom’s Night Out, the main character has a sign on the inside of her cabinet that says Keep Calm and Mommy on.

I guess I need one that says Keep Calm and Art On.

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

Commercials, commercials, commercials.  I don’t watch a lot of TV but when I do I am overwhelmed with ads.  I especially hate the drug ads with their wonderful advice to ask your doctor if the drug is right for you.  I never go to the doctor unless I absolutely have to and I let him proscribe the drugs, not TV.

Clyde has a great re-write for the one that claims her loss of energy is restored due to the drug.

Before I started doing these commercial I was poor.  Now I am rich and I don’t care who buys the drug.

I think that sums it up.

I think Tuesday night’s Line Dance performance on a surface that looked like a cobble stone street in Europe may have done something to my knee.  I keep thinking it is better because it doesn’t bother me in the day time but it keeps waking me up at night with a lot of pain.  Oh well, I figure it will be better soon.  I have plenty of aspercreme.

 

I now have four first stage paintings for Fiddling at Mid Night’s Farm House.  I hope to get another one done tomorrow.  I want to have a lot of time to fine tune them.  I am one of those people that works better under pressure so studio, here I come!

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

The other day on a walk through Wild Wood Park I was thinking about several guys we know that suffered serious injuries while showing off, well actually one was just taking a risk he always takes.

I mentioned to Clyde that I was glad he was not such a hot dogger like those guys.  He said he didn’t have the nerve for daring stunts.  He was more like a cold puppy than a hot dogger.

I’ll take a cold puppy any day!
