Blue Ridge Parkway Artist Presents New Butterfly photograph and Broccoli Joke...

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist Presents New Butterfly photograph  and Broccoli Joke...

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist


Be sure to check out my Special Promotions at the bottom of the blog that end Tuesday!




This time of the year I often take pictures for painting ideas. Most of my paintings are interpretive works from photographs that I take but sometimes I get one that I prefer to present in my Creative photograph series.

Recently I took some pictures of a Great Spangled Friterally and here is one I decided to post in my wildlife photographs album. I have not met the

medium I don't like!

Unlike a lot of people, especially kids, I love broccoli! I look forward to Tuesday night when we get Chinese and I always get a broccoli dish. Actually, to be more accurate, I always get chicken and broccoli but it is embarrassing that I always get the same thing.

Nothing is as good as chicken and broccoli. Anyway, sometimes the broccoli is fantastic and sometimes it is a little less then fantastic and I am getting to the point that I can tell by looking before the first bite.


I told Clyde I must be some sort of broccoli psychic. He said maybe I am a broccoli whisperer. I think that is a bit much.


Oh well, there are a lot of great broccoli jokes on the internet.

I love the one where the broccoli says I don't like you either!

Well, it is that time of year again. Another contribution to my Ant Chronicles. Last year wasn't very bad and I am hoping for a good summer with little ant activity.

We have tried every ant cure in the entire world and still see ants. So far I keep seeing one in the bathroom which is weird. I asked Clyde why there is only one.

He said it is scouting the place out before getting on a horn and calling in the troops. I don't doubt it.

Saw a cute joke on the internet about ants. Why was the little ant confused? All his uncles were ants. Love it!

A long time ago I heard the saying about the only two things that are certain in life - death and taxes. Well, after many decades of standing in front of a sink, I would like to add, dirty dishes. I saw a cute saying on the internet about dirty dishes. If you can't do dishes, don't eat.

Also, there was one about using edible plates! That sounds like a great idea but then the glasses, utensils and pots would have to be edible and I don't think my guys would go for that.

Clyde has been working diligently to reduce the size of his pot.

I don't think I could get him to eat one.

Now that the windows are open, the dogs are barking more and more and louder and louder.

I have done a lot of paintings to the sound of barking dogs.

One of our neighbors always manages to get a dog that barks continuously and monotonously. It really jangles my nerves.

I saw a cute picture of a dog with the caption - If you wanted that stick, why did you throw it?

I told that one to Clyde and he added- If you want me to get it, you will receive my bill. Why don't you go fetch something on Facebook? Love it!


We had a dog that would not play fetch.


I don't blame her.

The lawnmowers are blaring a lot of the time now and some neighbors like to get it done as early as possible to avoid the afternoon heat.

I saw a great lawnmower joke on the internet.


You are asleep at 7 am? Let me play the song of my people.


Clyde added, and now it is your song. Wake up!

I get a ridiculous number of scams practically every day. I am always a little worried when I see that I have messages on Messenger. I should be glad to see that I have messages but I get a lot of scams so I am very wary about what is there.

Today I received an email thanking me for ordering something that I didn't order. The thank you made my mind reel with sarcastic replies.

It is tempting to answer the email with,

Thank you for sending me another scam! I have only received five today and three of them shut down my computer. I don't know what happened to the other two!

A few weeks ago one of them blew up the computer and it fell through the floor after one click on a link which is why we have a new computer! We can't wait to see what happens next!


Keep those scams coming!

The Word Man and I are looking forward to the book launch of Fiddling at Midnight's Farmhouse on June 16th at Christ Lutheran! His launch is one of a series of literature readings that are hosted by Christ Lutheran.

Clyde came up with the name Rough Draft Coffee House. We celebrate creativity in a coffee house atmosphere.

The name that Clyde came up with goes great with a writers joke I saw on the internet this morning. Why are writers always cold? They are surrounded by rough drafts! Love it!

I am still griping about Towhees in Wildwood Park. To think, I named my studio after that beautiful, but irritating bird. I really get tired of hearing, "Drink your tea", over and over again on our walks.

I asked Clyde if it had another song. He said it didn't have one. It was a one-hit wonder long ago and is trying desperately to make a come back. I guess I just have to learn to love it.

I found a joke that applies to this bird.

Why did the bird go to the hospital? To get tweetment.

Maybe if a Towhee got tweetment it could come up with another song. LOL!

I finally have a convert! People have been asking me how I have kept my weight down my whole adult life. First they ask if I am just naturally slim which is not at all true. I had to fight weight gain as a child and teenager. I went to the library and read a book on nutrition and figured out where I was going wrong.

Now I know I must eat a balanced diet and COUNT CALORIES. No one has believed me until now. Clyde is losing about a pound a week and is not HUNGRY or MISERABLE! I am so proud of him. I'm sure the weight loss will help his knee problem.

The other day I told him he was really losing it. I let out a big laugh when I saw his face and, of course, said, I mean weight, not mind!

I saw a cute weight joke on the internet. A woman is weighing herself in a towel. Her response is, "This towel must be very heavy."

Life with The Word and Bird Man - Clyde Kessler

As I have mentioned before, I like to watch Judge Judy. There have been times that I wanted to lay some people out that were doing me wrong but if I did let them have it, my circumstances would probably have been worse so I kept quiet.

I love to watch her lay people out that are wronging someone.

You do have to wonder about the intelligence level of a lot of the people that are on the show. Clyde thinks the show scouts people that are not too bright so the show will be entertaining. He has a theory.

He thinks they are given the following questionnaire.

1. Are you stupid?
2. Are you very stupid?
3. Would you complain to the police that the cocaine you bought is no good?

If you answered yes to no. 1, you are on the waiting list. If you answered yes to number two, you are on the short list. If you answered yes to number three then we will pick you up within the hour.

You are on the next show.
