Since the kids were gone today the wife and I did some of our Fall Cleaning (inside the house) and also cleared some land this morning, the remains of which I’ll haul off later with the tractor.
Then we gave each other showers. Which was good. Woman scrubbed me so hard and so well that I kinda feel like I’m sparkling now. Literally sparkling.
Now that’s the way you do it.
Most modern people spend their entire lives terrified of being seriously hurt and eventually killed. But once you realize that at some point (if not often) you will certainly be seriously hurt, and that one day, without fail, you will eventually be killed (by something or someone), then being terrified is a rather ridiculous conceit. Not to mention an extremely cowardly one.

What it looks like when your wife wakes you up late at night to have sex. Not that I’m not amenable, cause I am (a guy will always trade away sleep for sex), it’s just that she can’t get expect to jump start me like a push mower engine. I’m not fuel injected either though, I still have a carburetor.
You gotta prime me a little.
I’m middle aged now and you gotta crank the propeller when I’m just waking up and still dead cold. Lol!
The trouble with the average modern American is that he is so rarely American at all. Most of the time he’s just modern…
Personally speaking (as to his nature and personality) Trump is Chaotic Neutral.
But realistically speaking (as to her Actual Nature) Clinton is Neutral Evil…
My wife woke up sick with a cold.
So I let her sleep late, did my morning work, did my morning PT and hike, came back and ate my lunch, made her some soup, woke her up and had her eat it.
Then to entertain her as she ate I did an impromptu dance and made up a rap song, ad hoc, just for her. Ladies and gentlemen I give you my latest foray into the rap genre market:
EAT MY SOUP
Eat my soup and you’ll get real bettah
Eat my soup and you’ll get real wettah,
CAUSE YA GOTTA GET WETTAH IF YOU WANNA GET BETTAH!!!
(You see proper hydration is extremely important in recuperating from illnesses and injuries.)
Anyway, she laughed…
This happened back in 2013. I still miss Alex. Boy thought he was a dawg. All Dawg.
(Sam and Alex on point)
I like to watch Sam chase my female cats. He never hurts them but he likes to chase them across the fields and to the woodlines where my female cats either tree, or turn and stop and Sam blunders to a halt to avoid running over them.
Sometimes they will sprint right in front of his face to entice him to chase them. (You know females.)
Once Alex (my male Viking cat) sees Sam chasing the females he’ll go outside and chase them as well as if he’s another dog. And if they tree he’ll sit beside Sam and watch em from the ground as if he’s waiting on em to come back down.
So my two males, dog and cat, sit watching my two female cats as if they are dogs who have treed possums.
It amuses me.
America, you don’t have a government. You have a set of theoretical governing principles which your leaders completely ignore, you entirely lack the courage to truly respect or enforce, and which no one takes seriously to any degree at all.
Thus if you had any sense at all you would have understood by now what this actually implies: that you don’t really need a government. Most certainly not the one you have.
But you don’t have any sense at all.
You have unquestioned indoctrination, and an habitual and innate sense of abject submission.
Thus you are as you are…
EVERY SINGLE LIBERTY AND RIGHT
Every single Liberty you enjoy is composed of a set of high moral duties for which you are directly accountable. Otherwise you possess merely a license to do wrong rather than the freedom and opportunity to do what is best and true.
Every single Right you have been granted by God is composed of high responsibilities for which you are personally answerable. Otherwise you do not possess a Right; you are merely the human agent of self-indulgent recklessness and selfish wrong-doing.
God, the Good, and the Truth are the natural Masters of your Liberties and your Rights, not merely your own desires and wishes. License is not a Liberty, and you have no Right to do wrong. Do not be deceived by those who would make a petty self-god of your Rights and Liberties. They were granted you as a great opportunity, they were not promised you without consequence. Your Rights and Liberties are not inexhaustible, and you will be held accountable for both.
Your Liberties and your Rights end at the stony shoreline of evil and indulgence. If you take alien ship beyond that safe point then you do so entirely at your own cost and at your own peril. Your Liberties and your Rights will always ultimately sink upon the seas of self-deception.
The Wise Man fully understands this and therefore he both fears God and he is judicious and responsible in the exercise of his Liberties and his Rights.
He is also entirely unwilling to both unfairly strip the natural Liberties and Rights from another, or equally egregiously, to tell another that they naturally possess unlimited and unchecked Liberties and Rights.
Because no one ever has nor ever will possess such unreal things.
So early this morning my wife gets up to go to the bathroom. When she comes back to the bedroom she acts like she’s going to get dressed rather than get back under the covers.
So I pulled the sheets back and told her, “Woman, get your big black butt back in this bed. It’s cold and I wanna cuddle!”
She punched me in the stomach (like my daughter often does) and said, “That’s rude!”
Well, I don’t like being called rude. So I told her, “Well, I was gonna make you eggs and grits with real honey butter for breakfast, but just for that I’m gonna use margarine instead! Because two can play at this game missy”
Nah, I’m just kidding. I used real honey butter anyway. You gotta keep your woman satisfied. Lol!
He was right you know. Very, very Right.
So, after all, there was not one kind of Strife alone, but all over the earth there are two. As for the one, a man would praise her when he came to understand her; but the other is blameworthy: and they are wholly different in nature. For one fosters evil war and battle, being cruel:  her no man loves; but perforce, through the will of the deathless gods, men pay harsh Strife her honor due. But the other is the elder daughter of dark Night, and the son of Cronos who sits above and dwells in the aether, set her in the roots of the earth: and she is far kinder to men.  She stirs up even the shiftless to toil; for a man grows eager to work when he considers his neighbor, a rich man who hastens to plough and plant and put his house in good order; and neighbor vies with his neighbor as he hurries after wealth. This Strife is wholesome for men.  And potter is angry with potter, and craftsman with craftsman, and beggar is jealous of beggar, and minstrel of minstrel. Perses, lay up these things in your heart, and do not let that Strife who delights in mischief hold your heart back from work, while you peep and peer and listen to the wrangles of the court-house.  Little concern has he with quarrels and courts who has not a year’s victuals laid up betimes, even that which the earth bears, Demeter’s grain. When you have got plenty of that, you can raise disputes and strive to get another’s goods. But you shall have no second chance  to deal so again: nay, let us settle our dispute here with true judgement which is of Zeus and is perfect. For we had already divided our inheritance, but you seized the greater share and carried it off, greatly swelling the glory of our bribe-swallowing lords who love to judge such a cause as this.  Fools! They know not how much more the half is than the whole, nor what great advantage there is in mallow and asphodel.
The best thing about my Lord (Jesus Christ) is that within himself He skillfully unites what is best in mortal Man, with the Perfection of Immortal God, that he patiently and favorably expects the same of me, despite being acutely aware of my many limitations, and yet He will not blithely excuse my faults, but rather demands of me that I conquer them without pretense or procrastination.
I instinctively understand a Man of exacting and energetic expectations, and I well appreciate a God of grace and gentle forbearance. It is a combination of Extreme Wisdom and Divine Consideration.
