Such a grey day.  It is so dark outside it is like twilight.  I have read that days without sun cause some people to be depressed.  I have never noticed that.  I like being able to see without sun glasses and the somber mood is okay with me.  I must admit I would rather see the sun. 

I was amazed at the temperature in my car when I went to the store! 67! That certainly is warm for January.  I like snow and hope we see some more.  I have some new boots so I can walk in it.  I always said if we have to have winter then there should be snow.  It is so beautiful!  I only have a few snow scene paintings. 

I think after I get through with my current commission and my Wintergreen Blue Ridge Overlook, I will look into painting a snow scene. 

Hope the weather cooperates!

Well, I couldn’t be more uptight about a matter that I have to keep private.  I hate these kinds of confrontations but it isn’t something I can avoid.  It isn’t anything about my artwork but it is quite serious.  Oh well, it will pass and I am looking forward to that day. 

Meanwhile I have two commissions I am working on in addition to every thing else. Yikes!  Better to be busy then not have enough to do but it sure is difficult to find the time. 

 I am very glad that I now have over 400 followers on Youtube!  Please check out my channel which is Kendall Kessler!  

I hope everyone had a great day and I need to get off the computer for a while. 

Clyde said when you get out of Computer Purgatory come watch a River Monsters episode with me.  His words, not mine!  Love River Monsters!

Let’s watch Jeremy Wade put his big toe into a piranha’s mouth to prove they are not ferocious!  If you have ever watched River Monsters, you know what I am talking about! 

LOL!

No offense to Jeremy!  I am a big fan of this great angler and biologist!

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

When I was teaching at Radford University I had some night classes so on Mondays we ordered Pizza and Tuesdays we got Chinese take out.  For some reason we still do that.  The habit took hold and didn’t let go.

I love broccoli and almost always order chicken and broccoli.  Yesterday I was wondering why I hardly ever ordered shrimp and broccoli, so I ordered it.

Later, as I was downing one drink after the next I remembered why and mentioned to Clyde that I don’t order it often because it is the saltiest dish there.

He said that is because the shrimp bring the ocean with them.

Okay, I like that one!  Cheers!

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

Please click on my latest Youtube!  I will have another one soon!

I am enjoying Clyde’s manuscript.  He really is a great writer and a lot of the poems remind me of the Spoon River Anthology.  When I was in High School the Drama department presented a show of readings from that anthology.  We all thought it was great!  Clyde’s new book Fiddler at Midnight’s Farm House is based on his experiences growing up on Ferrum, VA.  and will be published by Cedar Creek Publishing Company.

My fantastic Yoga Teacher is offering free yoga classes all August at Life in Balance in Christiansburg, VA!  Check it out!  Mims is a great teacher and yoga has helped me out with some muscle problems.  Yes!!!!!

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

More dietary quips.  As I have said before, we try to eat organic as much as possible but you can’t always find what you want.  I have reason to believe that all the pesticides in our food are causing illnesses, including cancer.  I am not afraid of dying but I am scared to death of chemotherapy so I spend extra in the hopes of avoiding cancer.

Well, I love mint chocolate chip cookies once in a while and I can’t find organic ones so I get the regular ones.  I told Clyde I hoped they weren’t too bad for me.

He said as long as you or the cookies don’t glow in the dark, you are probably safe.

I ate one in the dark.  So far, so good.

Life with The Bird and Word Man – Clyde Kessler

As I have mentioned before, I love word play.  When you marry a writer the words bounce all over the place like ping pong balls.

The other night I heard Clyde let out a groan and I thought he said old.  I always like to tease him when he says that.  I tell him he is just a baby.  Actually the word he said was “oh” so he corrected my tease.  He said at his age they were synonyms.

Anyway, here is a great pun that cracked me up on Facebook.  Clyde liked it, too.

I have a phobia of German sausage.  I fear the wurst!  Love it!
