I know the Bird Man is glad the weather will be warmer this week-end. Not that the weather stops him. It just stops the car so he can’t get to his favorite sites. Roads are fine and the Bird Man marches on.
I asked him today how many species of birds he has seen. He wasn’t sure but he thinks the number is around 400. That is pretty good for a bird watcher that will not go to any place where the wildlife is waiting for him with a knife and fork as soon as he gets off the bus.
No Africa for him!
Here’s a bird he has never seen and unlikely to ever see!
Forms, forms, forms! Every time I turn around I have to fill out a medical form which seems like a snap until I take a close look at it. I either have a lot of information to dig up or I am asked questions that don’t seem to make sense about future medical expenses.
I call one office about the questions and they ask me to call another office and that office asks me to call another office. Yikes! It really is a Monday!
Time to get back to art stuff so I can smile! Here is my latest Heart Whimsy painting!
Such a beautiful day but I didn’t get a chance to get out and enjoy it. So much to do here and then our church had a great Benefit Concert for Beans and Rice, a wonderful group that helps people out as much as possible.
I wish I had taken pictures of all the terrific musicians but I was too enthralled listening to them, especially Tim Brower! He played a number of great pieces on the organ, including my favorite Bach fugue! I have the music for the piano but the Tocatta and fugue in D Minor sounds best on the organ.

I don’t have anything from the Word Man today – at least nothing that I can print but we both got a big laugh out of a Daffy Duck funny on Facebook!
Daffy is at a bar and two large women with accents are sitting across from him. He asks them if they are from Scotland and they say Wales, you idiot. So Daffy says, “Okay, are you two whales from Scotland?” He didn’t remember much after that.
Well, as usual, we made a lot of disparaging remarks about other motorists on our way down to Christmas celebration with relatives. Everybody seems to be in love with our bumper no matter what the speed. Clyde is a careful driver and will go over the speed limit five or seven miles to try to prevent bumper kisses but it never works.
Oh well! We got there without being rear ended and had a great time! Always great to get together with family. All of us are really into yakking and laughing! Hope everyone had a great Christmas today!

I still have a couple of Christmas chores that I will do as soon as I get off the computer. Looking forward to family time tomorrow and taking it easy. Hope everyone has a great Christmas! If you don’t celebrate Christmas, then Happy Holidays! My rear end is getting real sore sitting here so it is time to get going!

Clyde does not like cell phones. He hardly ever has his on and oftentimes doesn’t even take it with him. He pays about seven dollars a month and is required to add at least 60 minutes every three months.
He just added more and now has 1000 minutes on his phone. I told him he could probably call Mars. He said the Martians would probably offer a lot of rocks in exchange for hamburgers. I think I will keep my hamburgers. Rocks from Mars does sound interesting but the only time I am not hungry is right after eating so…no. Keep your rocks, Mars.
I don’t have anything from The Word Man today, at least, not anything that I can print. He sure does come up with some great political comments but we would both like to stay alive.
There are a lot of funnies about Christmas trees on Facebook right now! My favorite has a picture of a sad looking dog in front of a fallen tree. The caption reads, “Thank goodness you are home. The tree fainted!”
Lot’s to do, lot’s of plans, not enough time. Oh well, I did thoroughly clean the blue bathroom today. It looks good! Now to the store to get a tracfone card and a few other things. Hope everyone has a great Sunday!
Burning Shore Original Oil Painting has been Sold
I received just short of 1000 hits on this one this week! Very popular painting!
I was determined to get some housework done today. The whole house needs dusting and vacuuming. Oh well, I did get another Heart painting done for my Whimsy series. Check it out! The heart is not cut off on my website. I had a little trouble with the copyright copy.
I am very pleased with my latest Heart interpretation painting! This time I put the memory of a person that one may be thinking of or lost, etc. The face I put in the heart is ghost like and the marks around the heart emanate her presence.

Life with The Bird and Word Man – Clyde Kessler
I am still cleaning out the mess in our house and now that I am in the computer room with all Clyde’s books and documents the progress is very slow. I pile the stuff up on the living room couch and he goes through it bit by bit when he gets a chance. So much to go through!
Housework truly is an impossible task, especially when I have so much to do on the computer. Sometimes I think I just need a bulldozer. Of course a match would really finish the job but then I would have to take everything outside so we would still have a house to live in. That is way too much work. Back to the bulldozer idea!
