Life with The Word and Bird Man - Clyde Kessler

Clyde's knee is hurting less and less while our grass looks like it needs a baler. He doesn't want me to do it. Not sure why. I think I could get it done but he would rather hire someone until his knee is better.

He called me this morning to see if his lunch was still in the fridge. It was. Then he mentioned the tree guys are coming today to chop down some trees.

He also mentioned he was getting someone to mow the lawn. I said good, it's scary out there. He laughed and said maybe Big Foot is lurking behind the grass.

I think I saw him! Yikes!

Saw a cute Big Foot t-shirt on Pinterest.

Big Foot doesn't believe in you, either.

Love it!

I am so pleased to back to oils! Been walking with Clyde and getting Spring inspirations! The first one is a beautiful New River view from Riverview Park. I have the first layer done and anxious to get to the second. Love oil paint! I am also going to start a pastel portrait soon. So much to do! So little time.

Life with The Word and Bird Man - Clyde Kessler

Clyde was able to walk up a flight of stairs yesterday without pain! Yes! His knee is improving so I think I should be able to get a funny out of him.

I told him I was completely dry in regards to funnies. How do I get wet again?

He said I should go outside in our present deluge, go on down to the river, jump in and tell my jokes to the fish.

Okay, that was a weird one, but it is all I got on a drizzly Monday so I took it.


Great heaven joke on the internet! A guy is trying to check in but St. Peter tells him he almost made it, but those fish stories and pictures on Facebook. Really?

Love the weather right now. Not too cold or hot. Just right. We are in for a deluge this weekend so it is time to step away from the computer and get outside. Clyde and I walk very slowly until his knee is better. I hope I will get a good report when he gets home. The progress varies. Hope every one has a great weekend!

Clyde is still having trouble with his knee in spite of exercise and weights. It will be a long time before he is better but you have to give him an "A" for effort! His sense of humor is coming back and I am getting some goofy answers to my questions.
Yesterday I called him and opened with,

You know how we all change a lot as we age.

No, I am just an older monkey.

Well, I have changed a lot. When I was young I wasn't that interested in History and now I am fascinated by it. I want to read all that whaling history in Moby Dick. Where is it?

Who knows?


Got it from the library and now those parts of the book don't seem to take up as much of the book as I thought they did.


There is a great Moby Dick funny on the internet. Herman Melville is puzzled about a piece of paper that he is holding. I white whale is staring at him and saying it is a restraining order, idiot.

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist is Smiling and Too Pooped to Joke...

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist






I was determined today to have a good Wednesday. I don't know what it is about Wednesday's, but things seem to just go wrong. I am pleased to report this evening that I had a good Wednesday and hope the evening is good, too.

Lots to do but the glasses strand with little tiny fake pearls did not burst all over the kitchen floor and no rants over technology, though the rants can happen any day of the week. I won't get into all those other Wednesday irritations that usually occur. Beautiful day!

Cheers!

Clyde is using weights now to strengthen his knee. I was real pleased to find an adjustable set so he can take it slow. Still not getting much humor from him right now. I asked him if he had a funny for my blog and he said he was too pooped out, popped up, blowed up, and busted to come up with a joke.

Well, I guess that is a writer with a sore knee's way of saying nothing right now. Saw a great surgery joke online. In the middle of an operation the doctor tells the nurse to go to Surgery.com and click on the Are you totally lost icon. The patient hasn't been put under yet. YIKES!

Technology has me screaming at times. I needed to correct something and when I told the person on chat I did not know the number I needed to use correct the situation, he gave me a link to the same page where I needed that number to correct the situation.

Arggh! I explained that goof up to the next online chat agent and she rectified the situation but this was after I had gone through a bunch of other online circles that turned into dead ends. One technology problem can take up way too much time. Cheers on a Monday! I need some.

Life with The Word and Bird Man - Clyde Kessler

Clyde is able to walk more, but every once in a while his knee locks up and he lets out a yell. I will be so glad when he is better. He gets another shot today.

When we walk in the park I take my camera. I never know when I will see something for inspiration. The last time he asked me if I had my camera and I told him I wasn't taking it.

He said we would be sure to see a Big Foot sighting or some paranormal activity that could actually be photographed.

After we had walked for a while I mentioned that we hadn't seen anything that was weird. He said, oh no? Look to your right. I was on the left. Ha ha! Yes, you are weird but I have a lot of photographs of you. Don't need anymore just yet. Keep walking.

Getting a lot done today. So far, the ear pulsing is not there! Maybe the pulsatile tinnitus is due to a sinus infection that I am getting over. Fingers and paint brushes crossed!

Life with The Word and Bird Man - Clyde Kessler

Clyde is still working with a sore knee and not joking around much. I think the funny barometer will rise as the pain decreases.
Anyway, a funny thing happened to me on Facebook the other day that reminded me of a favorite show, The Middle. A friend sent me a message proclaiming his love for me. He is always complimenting my artwork so I didn't want to be harsh. I thanked him and said I didn't think he should be saying that to a married woman.

He apologized, said he was married too, and had been hitting the moonshine. On a favorite episode of The Middle, Frankie tells Mike after a great party that she would like to invite all their friends over for a party.

She sent them emails that night and in the morning when she sobered up and realized she didn't really want to have a big party, she said, "We need a breathalyzer on that computer!" Love it! I think that Facebook friend needs one, too. That wasn't the first time he had sent me a strange message.

As I have said many times, I love to laugh and I try to have something funny on my blog. My father was hilarious and he always ended a conversation with a joke. He knew how to live!

Clyde cracks me up all the time and I depend on him for funnies. I didn't have anything for today so I called him up and asked him if he had a funny. Not today. He said his hurt knee has kicked his funny bone right off.

Even when he can't think of anything he comes up with something! Love it! Here is one I saw on the internet that Clyde can relate to.
A doctor is talking to the Gingerbread man about his hurt knee.

Have you tried icing it?

Life with The Word and Bird Man - Clyde Kessler

I am still considering all the phobias I have and I mentioned my knee phobia to a friend and she agreed and added hip phobia. At a certain age you realize that exercise and keeping your weight down may not be enough.

Clyde is still recovering from knee surgery and I am worried about my knees. Oh well, to quote a favorite movie, Strictly Ball Room, a life lived in fear is half lived. I wonder if I am even at a quarter lived with all my fears.

Saw a good funny phobia today. I have a phobia of german sausage. Yes, I fear the wurst. Love it!

Since Clyde's knee surgery he is having trouble with his stomach as well as the pain in his knee. He used to always eat a banana a day but is leaving that one out for a while.

I am trying to eat one a day, too, since they have a lot of potassium but I don't like them that much. For some stupid reason I bought too many at the store the other day.

Oh well, instead of Send in the Clowns I will be singing Send in the Monkeys this week. Don't bother. They're here!

Life with The Word and Bird Man - Clyde Kessler

I have a lot of fears. I am a very timid person. I am afraid of heights and I have no desire to get in an airplane unless I have to. If God had meant us to fly he would have given us wings. I know you can't get away with saying that one anymore but I say it anyway. No one can get me on a motorcycle. They don't have seat belts.

All of the doors to my house are practically barricaded. If I were a crook I would just walk in and if someone is home I would say, "Whoops! Wrong house." Recently a thief that specialized in stealing things from homes said that on TV and I was not surprised.

Anyway, since Clyde's knee surgery I have a new fear. I am afraid of my knees. He takes good care of himself and so do I so I am worried I will tear the meniscus, too. I didn't kick real hard last night at Line Dance Class.

I don't think there is a term for knee phobia but I definitely have it. I guess that's one for the books! LOL!
