From now one when I go on a trip and am staying where I am promised Wifi service I am going to plan on not getting much done.  Either we live under a bad computer star or that promise is always false!

I try to cut back on computer stuff when I am away but I don’t like it when I am cut off.  Oh well, as one of my friends said years ago, “What is the use of complaining?”  Some one will always complain louder.  Cheers!

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

Einstein was right.  Everything is relatives.  I love my relatives but we all have some that we just don’t jive well with.  We just got back from a visit and I was a bit bothered by a few verbal jabs I received there.  Funny thing, on the way home at one of our stops I saw a book with this title.  People Can’t Drive you Crazy if you don’t give them the Keys.  I got to stop giving that one the keys!

Life with The Word and Bird M1an – Clyde Kessler

I know I have mentioned this before, but I-81 is awful!  Trucks all over the place!  It is so hard not to get sandwiched between them and then  there are cars that  practically  run you over if you aren’t going fast enough for them.

Yesterday Clyde lost it when a car zoomed around us. He yelled, Why don’t you go 90 mph?  Then  he laughed and said, “Oh, you are!”  That car didn’t need any help from him!

Beautiful Carvins Cove near The Blue Ridge Parkway and Walking Behind a Horse…

Carvins Cove

Another great place near  The Blue Ridge Parkway is Carvin’s Cove.  I have done three paintings so far of this beautiful section of The Blue Ridge Mountains and will probably do more in the future.

Magic Light at  Carvin’s Cove is probably my favorite!  I am especially pleased with the light effect and the cool colors in the mountains and water.  I think this is one of my most magical paintings and it was sold to a great Roanoke patron.

Carvins Cover Nature Reserve is the second largest park in the nation.  11,363 acres of Carvins Cove is protected by the largest conservation easement in Virginia’s history and is overflowing with recreational opportunities including hiking, biking, fishing, and boat rentals.  There are more than 40 miles of trails.

I found this information on Carvins Cove in  the online publication Roanoke Outside.com

Life with the Bird and Word Man – Clyde Kessler

When I say I married the Bird Man I don’t mean I married someone that likes to look at birds once in a while.  Clyde is a serious conservationist and has been keeping records on bird populations since 1975.

He is working hard to add his 15,000 data reports to E bird at Cornell University.  For most of our marriage he has worked part-time with the  U.S. Forest Service in The Jefferson National Forest researching bird, butterfly, and dragonfly populations.

The Trojan Horse  

My husband and I didn’t grow up with computers but now they are an essential part of our life and we are thankful for them in many ways but the computer can be a trojan horse.  We all have to be careful of harmful invasions.

I don’t know if anyone else has called the computer a Trojan Horse but lately I think it is a fitting title in another way.  Between my husband’s work and my artwork we spend a lot of time in front of a computer screen.

Lately I feel like I walked behind that horse and got kicked hard right in the butt!  I have to remember to get up every so often or maybe we should get a very high table for the computer so we can stand up!
