Here comes the Snow!!!


Please click on my Youtube!

I really didn’t think the snow threat was true.  Lots of times snow is predicted here and we hardly get any.  Not this time!  The inches are piling up and I still have not bought new boots. My old ones cracked apart.  I guess I’ll get the dog sled ready and head to the store.

It always takes all day!


Please click on my latest Youtube.  I am still hoping to add music but I haven’t quite figured out why it isn’t working for my latest ones.

 

Every time we have a friend over to help up with some computer questions I think we will be done in a few minutes!  Ha!  As usual, a new item had to be bought and the installation took all day!   I actually cleaned out part of my closet instead of worked on this time grabber.

Back to work!

I still can’t get the music added to my Youtubes.  I think they are much better with music but when I add it my voice disappears.  I do follow the directions to slide the bar to the left to favor the original audio but I still can’t hear my voice. 

Oh well.  My current painting is still coming along.  Sometimes they do not present too many problems.  I hope this is one of them.  Here are two more favorite florals!

Radford Library Grounds is a section of the sloping hill that is on the back side of the library in Radford City, Virginia. The trees provide beautiful colors and textures to the hill and the wildflowers are great accents. There are a lot of cultivate flowers as well in different parts of the property. It is a beautiful setting for my favorite building in the city.

Flowers by an Ecotone is a beautiful, colorful wildflower scene by a wooded area. This is an exceptionally serene work that draws the viewer in. I have always been happiest in secluded areas and spent much of my time in the woods near our home and at a beautiful creek when I was a child. It is no wonder that I married a dedicated naturalist.

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

I am trying to find some time to read books.  I used to read every night before going to bed and I am trying to get back to that.  The other day I brought home a huge, very heavy book titled The History of the World.  The title was in big letters and when my husband saw it he said,  “And that’s just Day One!”.

As I have mentioned before my husband read an entire set of Encyclopedias when he was a kid and his memory is incredible so now that I am trying to increase my knowledge of History I can ask him to clarify certain things.   His answer is usually very informative and funny!  I told him he really ought to write a history book entitled A Book of Clyde.  I think it would be a best-seller!

Looks Like the Dog is showing up Now!


I was wondering when Dog Days of August would arrive.  Looks like the dog was dragging his paws and will show up for early September!  I wish the lake were still open.

My husband isn’t much for swimming but I got him a new bathing suit and slides and he is willing to get in the water later!  My son loves to swim and he is ready to go!

Mountain Lake in Giles County was the setting for the hit movie, Dirty Dancing with Patrick Swayze!

I found another paranormal tale about a wild man in The Blue Ridge Mountains!

 

The Scalawag from Blue Mountain

Jimmie Lee had heard tales about the legendary Big Foot or Sasquatch but never thought he would come into contact with the beast.  He was twelve years old and staying with his uncle and two cousins for the summer.

One morning his uncle told the boys he saw huge  prints near his apple orchard.     Jimmie and his cousins decided to pitch a tent to see if they could see Scalawag!  They were having fun and when the campfire got low they decided to go to sleep at around 11:00.  About thirty minutes later, the narrator heard a strange hissing sound.  He woke his cousin up and they both heard limbs cracking outside.

They saw with the flashlight a huge mammal like creature with long red fur eating apples in a crouched position. The creature turned and stared at them and they could see a strange human-like face with a pointy head. The face was the only part of the creature that did not have fur and was an orange-brown color. It let out a screeching howl and ran off into the woods.

The next day they saw the huge prints with toes in the ground.  The uncle and aunt have heard the noise of the animal since this event and Jimmie Lee swears he has seen Sasquatch!

I got this story from About.com Paranormal Phenomena online

Life with the Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

I have always been nervous about spiders since one of my childhood friends said she had a black widow spider in her garage.   I stayed out of there!  I am not that scared of them but I don’t know one from the next so I am cautious.

The other day there was a small black spider in the computer room so I asked The Bird Man who is also very knowledgeable about insects to look at it.  I yelled from the room that there was a spider in the room and would he come check it out.

He asked me if it had it’s own web.

I said I didn’t know.  Maybe it is renting it.

The Word Man was not amused.

I hope you enjoy my mountain paintings by an artist of The Blue Ridge Parkway

Here is another great Cherokee animal legend from Lowell Kirk’s online publication, Cherokee Myths and Legends!

The Uktena is a great snake with horns on its head and a blazing crest that looked a diamond on it’s forehead.  It is as large as a tree trunk and  has scales that glitter like sparks of fire. It has rings or spots of color along the whole length and is considered to be a great prize to catch.

It can only be wounded on the seventh spot from the head which is where the heart and life of the animal are located. The blazing diamond is called Ulunsut’hi which means transparent. If a brave wins the diamond, he is considered to be the greatest wonder worker because the light dazzles the hunter and causes him to run toward the snake.

 

Life with The Word and Bird Man  – Clyde Kessler

Age is relative. I have always wondered about people that think forty is ancient.  It  all depends on which side of the big 40 one is on.  Anyway, my husband and I would not be considered young by most people and we are starting to have a few memory problems.

Yesterday I mentioned a few memory problems that were bothering me.  Later I told him there was another age thing I wanted to mention but I forgot what it was.  He, of course, said you just proved your point!
