2. TODAY IN MY LIFE
A welcome day off the Weekend Job and an easy-going day for the nuclear family. Blogging first thing, then ironing and cooking a roast dinner. Meditation in the afternoon and a combination of missus time and me time thereafter.

3. TODAY'S SELF-OBSERVATION
Despite a late bedtime at 2330 last night I still woke naturally six hours later. If I get in 1-2 hours of meditation, I seem to need only six hours generally. This suits me as blogging takes 2-3 hours of my day, which is essential for business purposes, keeping my online profile high.
Thursday night's "weekly service" went well, with missus' bell suitably rung. I have come to terms with what's needed and spend an hour "warming up" by various means before missus arrives. When she does I then have something to impress her with.
In subsequent pillow talk, missus aked me what the best time of my life was. Without hesitation, I answered RIGHT NOW!! This is without question my Golden Age, where I have everything I require at home, abundant cosy creature-comforts, no heartaches, and loving fulfilling relationships.
The things of youth I can happily cope without and I am still healthy and mobile enough to enjoy life, making a difference to every moment. I live every day with the attitude of Gratitude.

Slang for “prostitute” in Victorian times was “blowsy” and slang for “ejaculation” was “blow,” leading to the current phrase “blow job.” In ancient Greece, a blow job was called “playing the flute.”
