Life with The Word and Bird Man - Clyde Kessler

Clyde has come up with another mirror joke.

My favorite so far was the mirror didn't want to reflect us anymore and wanted to die and come back as a dog dish.
Now I have a new favorite.

He said he thought he saw the mirror draw a gun on him. He didn't know whether to raise his hands or try to cover up his body so the mirror didn't have to reflect him.

Mirrors really do lose their ability to attract us as we age. LOL!

Life with The Word and Bird Man - Clyde Kessler

I am starting to believe there is a computer supernatural world that we are living in. Tuesday I detailed how my mouse was driving me crazy and I was going to heave it out the window. We have not cleaned it, changed the battery or even turned the computer off and on and now it is working perfectly!

No problems at all! Clyde does not think computer ghosts are at work. He thinks the mouse read the blog and realized it had better shape up or become a missile.

Somehow that does not quite compute. The mouse is putting my words down so it has to know what is written. Maybe it can put the words down without actually reading them every time and this time it did.


I like my computer ghost theory better.

Started this day with a twinge in my back. That usually means I will be in big trouble with a horrible back spasm that lasts for a week. Well, knock on wood, it went away but I did take it easier than yesterday. Sometimes I just work too hard and pay for it. Maybe this time I avoided the problem! Yes!!!!

Life with The Word and Bird Man - Clyde Kessler

Zippy has gone completely mad! I should never have bragged on this little rodent. It isn't that old but if we can't get it working better I will be heaving it right out the window. Of course, after I throw it out the window I will go get it and recycle it somewhere if that is possible.

It goes where I don't direct it like it is drunk, it eats letters when I hit return, and I have to hit sites on the drop down list over and over again. If I try to delete a section of words many times the whole page I am working on disappears.

This thing is bonkers!


Clyde said maybe it wants more cheese. Well, it can start scrounging for something to eat outside my window soon!


AAAAAARRRRRRGGGGGH! What was wrong with a mouse that is connected to the computer? Those little buggers worked!

Life with The Word and Bird Man - Clyde Kessler

Clyde started talking about the possibility of our going on a Pelagic Tour, something we have been wanting to do for a long time.  I really am not interested in taking a cruise.  I don't think that is for me, but a tour to see ocean creatures sounds like a great adventure! 

Clyde is a little concerned about the possibility of a bad storm on the ocean but he thinks they are careful about watching the weather.  

I told him I would love to see whales. He said well you have seen me.  

Ha ha, you are about five pounds from your ideal weight.  You may have had some extra weight but you were never a whale. 

Well, I was on my way but I got derailed by a calorie counting wife. 
Yes, you did and let's keep it that way.  LOL!

I am working very hard this morning so I can get out to Claytor Lake but the temperature right now is 64 so I may change my mind. There sure are a lot of reasons why I can't go a lot of the time.

Work, rain, and more work keeps me away and the summer is slipping away. I am all packed in case I do go.

Life with The Word and Bird Man - Clyde Kessler

I buy shampoo for both of my guys. Alan's shampoo has to say For Men and be in a black bottle. No girl's stuff for him. Clyde could care less so I buy some cheap shampoo that I guess is for everyone but it has a sweet bottle.

The kind I buy has different labels for different colors and I don't pay any attention to them but yesterday I noticed the kind I usually buy says Daily Clarifying.

I asked Clyde if that meant if you use this shampoo you should check every day to see if you still have hair? If you don't use it will you lose your hair?
He said he checks every day and he still has hair so I guess I better check the label and buy that one every time. LOL!

Life with The Word and Bird Man - Clyde Kessler

When we were visiting family last week we got into some interesting conversations with my brother who has a Ph.D in Computer Science and was working on restoring some old computers from the '90s. I'll bet he never hits a computer with a hammer.

It is great to talk with someone as knowledgeable as he is about the computer takeover. He has no desire to get a car that drives itself and he doesn't want a lot of computer gadgets in a car.

His comment on computer screens in cars was,

Why would you want a computer screen in your car? So it can distract you and then you die?

Here's a great funny on cars with computer directions.

The author of the windows file copy dialog visits some friends.

I'm just outside town. Should take fifteen minutes, no wait, six days, no wait, 30 seconds.

So much to do! Trips are a lot of work. Lots to do to get ready and then lots to do when you get home.
The mountain of laundry is the worst part and I can never get good internet reception when I am away so I have lots of computer work to do.

Oh well, the laundry is done and the studio is almost cleaned up enough for a Monday patron. A cluttered trail to the easel is not enough when I have visitors.

So now it is computer time.

Cheers to everyone, especially me!

Life with The Word and Bird Man - Clyde Kessler

My mouse, I call Zippy the Wonder Mouse because it has been the greatest mouse ever, is starting to act up. I think it has dementia and it is some sort of selective dementia. Clyde is not having any problem with it while I am chasing it all over the screen as the day goes on.

In the morning Zippy is great but by the afternoon it starts zooming to places I didn't send it. Also, some of my emails go directly to deleted as soon as I click on them. I guess it could be a battery problem but we replaced the battery recently.

I hope Zippy is not letting me down. I think wireless is for the birds.

Cute mouse joke!

Anyway, we are still picking up nails and the head guy inspected everything and said he would be back with a magnet to make sure all the nails are off the grounds.

Yes! No more very loud cussing and banging by my window! The job is done!

Life with The Word and Bird Man - Clyde Kessler

Oftentimes Clyde and I don't get a lot of sleep. Lots of noise when the windows are open. Dogs, dogs, dogs. I wish they didn't have to bark every time a leaf falls off a tree. Well, it seems that way.

The other day I was awakened by a dog that just barked continuously for a solid fifteen minutes at 6:30. Clyde said the same dog woke him up at 2:00.
He also saw a full grown buck on our street.

Maybe that is why we have so many barking dogs. There is no hunting in the city limits so Clyde says they are all hitching a ride to their Sanctuary City.

I wish they would go somewhere else so I could sleep.

The Bird Man recently gave a Butterfly lecture at Wildwood Park to a great turn out! He really knows how to wow an audience! It is nice to be married to such a knowledgeable guy.

I have learned a lot from him but I can't keep all that stuff in my head. It just won't stay there so I like to ask him ridiculous questions.

Last night I asked him why Fireflies have lights. He said because they are afraid of the dark. Now I can remember that one!

There are a lot of great butterfly jokes on the internet. A moth is a butterfly after it removes it's makeup. Love it!

Had a great time at Claytor Lake yesterday and, of all things, got to see an African python up close! There is a Discovery Center exhibit there 10 am to 5 pm Wednesdays through Saturday for a while.

Most of the wildlife species are local but one of the curators had a python that kids were having a great time petting on the grass!

Life with The Word and Bird Man - Clyde Kessler

Well, in addition to a new car, we are getting a new roof and it is half on. Lots of expense this year! I hope the other car lasts a few more years.
These roofers have been interesting to say the least. When I came home from Line Dancing Class last Tuesday night there was a truck loaded with roofing supplies sitting in our driveway. Clyde didn't see it drive up.

We figured they would be starting the next day. Well, the next day no one came. Clyde said if they didn't show up he was the owner of a very worn truck with the supplies we paid for.

Clyde called and was told the supervisor's wife went into labor and that is why they didn't show. Okay, the next day they showed up with a crew that should be listed in the Restricted Version of Home Repair. One of the guys need the "F" word in every sentence.

They worked hard for two days and the roof looks great! They said they wanted to work over the weekend so they could get the job done by early next
week. No one showed. No one called.

I think I need to introduce this crew to the telephone. It is a great modern convenience.
