Everything's going A-OK. Just met my nutritionist yesterday, (all free and covered by insurance of course) and had a productive meeting. We addressed the right supplements and SAMe treatments for alcohol induced cirrhosis and talked for hours.

This is something I can do, and my wife is carrying most of the load...remembering when I get my multitude of pills, injecting me with insulin and developing diabetic friendly, Gluten free, pizza, Chinese food, even cookie recipes to make it easier. Seriously she's an alchemist when it comes to recreating meals that are safe. I don't really have any stomach lining.

And like every man, I enjoy breakfast in bed everyday (what your wife don't do that? for shame.). I'm pampered, I know and I thank GOD for everything I have. (I don't deserve it, but I'll accept it gluttonously.) My health is recovering, I'm in my 170's-180's my wifes down to 123lbs...we are looking good.

It was 29yrs ago today that I first proposed to my wife Ally, she's the love of my life, my souls half, a true wife. We spend 24 hours a day with each-other, playing, watching movies, fooling-around, watching tv and occasionally working... answering emails, annoying customers asinine questions and dealing with returns. We print up labels at night, leave them outside and an employee picks them up while we sleep and takes them to the warehouse. All our work, takes place at home..in our bedroom "office".

Currently we are redesigning the bedroom, and going with a turn of the century nautical theme all in cherry wood, keeping in mind it must be cat safe...as our kittens a climber and the bedroom ceilings 12 foot tall. I'm still waiting on a desk and vanity desk I ordered Ally

So no big book today of a post, as this day belongs to my wife. She's returning things to Amazon as I write this, we have been on an amazon spree of late. Why are socks so small? Why can't properly sized socks be made for mens feet...Amazon sucks for socks FYI. Shoes they are great for, socks no...

Turning some broken Montblancs into custom pens.I've got a few Montblancs that I love, and lot's of broken pen parts from a bunch of others bought from local garage sales, estate auctions, pawn shops and Ebay. I was going to make some frankenpen hybrids but never got to it. I'm thinking of rebuilding a Montblanc Writers Edition 2003 Jules Verne Fountain Pen from parts mixing in some other parts and some bone and pewter to turn it into a one of a kind H.P.Lovecraft Writers Edition 2018! I'm thinking it will be green white and black, or white and black but it needs to be a one of a kind. The only problem is the nib...I'm not paying 200+ bucks for a Montblanc nib as my handwriting sucks so I'll use a inexpensive german or japanese nib.
1.    Manners. Always be polite, carry a handkerchief and always be ready to lend your coat. Know the traditions and rules to being a MAN. Don't be a guy, a lad, a boy as those are terms to escape, understand a "dude" is a fool. Want a good source on timeless manners? Manly Manners by Ruth Crowther

2.    Honesty. Be moderate in speech, and never use superlatives as it makes you look inexperienced.  I love my wife, I don't love ice cream...anyone who says they love ice-cream is dismissing themselves as a non-player character spouting out empty thoughts. No rifle is the best, who could test them all to claim that..but one can express qualities they do know personally. Don't say "This is the finest chicken soup" but say "this is delicious, the flavors rich and texture sublime" as it shows your not being fake by noting it's qualities, and both experienced and trustworthy to add impact to the complement.

3.    Decorum. Never complement a woman's physical appearance (Face,body), unless it's in a defined social setting with someone you don't work with. An exception is hair, if you notice a change, complement it as you may offend them by appearing self-absorbed and not noticing any changes.  Instead complement her accessories, her home, her accomplishments and refined behavior.

4.     Respect. Never, ever curse or use profanity in front of a lady. Show respect when a woman holds herself above her peers, and acts like a true Lady. Honor and respect that. Just as you would show greater respect to a peer, or fellow gentlemen than some..Dude in a tee shirt.

Treat everyone politely, be discriminate in how you show respect though. Showing respect is beyond meager politeness, and is the mark of a man. Few today know it, and less display it...be the man that does! Read Don'ts For Husbands by Blanche Ebbutt for some timeless advise on how to act with woman and gain the most important asset of all. A wife

5.     Honor. Have rules and stick by them. see the books above and look to other men you respect and wish to emulate. Preferably your father but it can be many in a lifetime. Have a code, but if it's not a timeless or traditional code it may appear to be just an arbitrary set of wants and desires so be-careful of falling into the inane demagoguery of millennials and others. Established codes and rules are thought out and explainable.

6.     Vigilance. Be prepared, as a scout that's my motto. Always have a multi-tool with a knife blade, always have a lighter to make fire or light candles, Always have a pen and small pad to keep notes if possible, and have business cards...seriously you can print them up yourself if you must but carry a few in case needed.  Establish your every day carry (EDC) and stick to it, Mine includes a set of sunglasses, a mechanical watch, reading glasses (micro in wallet), wallet and self defense object. It keeps you prepared and in a pattern that leads to greater organization of thought and more success.

7.    Modesty. Dress your age, and do it with style. Dress well as a sign of respect to others, and they will return that respect. Shallow people either only care about designer clothing or don't care at all how they look, seeing it not to matter.

   That's a classic cop out and excuse for not caring about how you make others feel. Style need not be expensive it simply takes effort. Wearing a tee shirt is juvenile, be it a $5 cheapo or $120 designer douche-bag. Shirts have buttons, undershirts are not shirts. I wore tee shirts as a boy, one had E.T on it..I also had Underoos but won't dress like that pushing 50.

Add a tie, and not a clip on and if possible a blazer or sports coat. Remember your teachers in odd coats, vests and slacks. Comfortable in their own clothing. Maybe replacing the vest with a sweater vest. They went 3 piece but they were not suits. They did show respect though, without displaying authority. They emulated the dress and style of English country gentlemen, tweeds, leather elbows, wools and modest color palate. Find your own style but reflect upon the past.       

    Dress up when going out and you show respect to your server and chef, just as it would any other host and makes others appreciate your gesture and consideration. If people dress up to meet you then that means something right? Return that grace and appreciation and cultivate that behavior yourself with others. I dress up when seeing the doctor, I dress up when meeting my banker so why not dress up when shopping in a retail store as they too should be treated with courtesy and respect.

    I practice a type of personal style in the Sprezzatura, i did not realize it until older but I do in signature, in footwear and in some other ways mixing eras. This is fine in an older man, and more appropriate as one gets older. If you're under 30, be minimal with it, develop it in your 30s and start practicing it in your 40s. It should be something you're competent in your 50s and mastered by your 60s. It's not for everyone, just like FEDORAS below but knowing how to artfully not give a shit is a talent to cultivate.

Don't wear a fedora until your late 30's or 40's, YOUNG MEN CAN'T PULL IT OFF...they look like they are in their dad's clothing. Also don't wear these if you're heavy or you will look like a Meme. Many older Italian and French practicing sprezzatura wear fedoras with large beards and unconventional colors...old men can do that, and be very stylish into their 80s but know your age.

Wear a newsy or duckbill cap, a hat for all ages. A boater or panama cap goes well with a seersucker, a bowler goes great in foul weather with a greatcoat. Baseball caps are fine for the younger, but less suitable with the older male over time (pun intended.) My advice -if you're gonna wear a baseball cap, go vintage. I own my grandfather's Brooklyn Dodgers cap that I rarely wear, but it's part of my wardrobe.

Style is your own, as are codes and paths, but you have to choose to get to where you want to be. Don't follow trends, don't go the course or with the flow. Be master and commander of your own destiny, and become the man your father hoped you to be.

1.    Every day learn something new, every week learn a new skill.

2.    Every day try to do something new, in approach and in methodology to never fall into a pattern on how you do things. This makes you more adaptive at that skill and in situations that may come to be. This will refine your methodology as you learn what works and what does not.

3.    Understand that when you work for others you will ALWAYS come out behind your boss, so be self employed, or be the boss. The world needs makers, creators and more start ups. Anyone can be wealthy if they are of moderate intelligence, the system is very easy to master if you're motivated and a hard worker. Most millionaires I know quit or never went to college, and a couple I've met (older gentlemen) never finished grade school. All of them share qualities...
        3.a    They don't give a shit about others opinions, they only care about facts that affect them personally, meaning    commercially.
        3.b    They are the hardest workers out there, they are ALWAYS working. They realize their pay per hour is higher than others thus is the value of their time so they rarely waste it. Appointments are on time, meetings brief and concise and bullshitters avoided. They work 120hrs a week but love it as it only helps them in the future. You  must know everyone's job, and be willing to fill in when needed...especially in the beginning. So start young but know it can be done whenever...all you need is an idea, and a niche to fill.

4.    If you must work for others follow a field in science or medicine, these are the only fields that NEED college and the bank-debt system. If it's not science or medicine then all your getting is debt and collecting propaganda and bias...those aren't qualities I'm looking for in an employee. I'm looking for the go getter, the younger worker looking to put in more hours and out work his own manager. The ambitious guy willing to take his bosses job, as that's the hardest worker. I have no respect for the guy who needs to be told what to do..or just "does his job"...Don't be that guy.
        4.a    Think benefits, medical care when working for others...is it really important? If you're not going to work long enough for a job to collect benefits or will move on before they are useful then realize they are not important. Thus, is the job even worth it?
        4.b    How far can you go at the job, where will it have you in a year, three years, five years, 10 years?
        4.c    Multitask and diversify.  Invest in yourself, and run a business on the side. It can be anything but keep trying as this is your backup, and hopefully an inroad to becoming the master and commander of your own future.

5.    Consider a partner or two. Father and son, brothers, and friends have traditionally formed companies and corporations. This can be anything today sisters, friends, married couples, anything. Groups, and gangs have more power and opportunity than those working alone....TRUST is the key and the weakest link will break so remove them!

6.    Spend one day a week on a side project. It can become a new business. I am starting a bronze sword foundry and smithy on the side with some friends. Sometimes it's real estate or other investments... I often have half a dozen side projects and they are never threats to my income as they only use my off time, and I'm careful enough to always profit or at least break even.

7.    Be confident, generations of generations of men made it from nothing...so can you. Most people today are sheep at best and automatons on average, they are not competition! It's easier today to make it than it was in 1928, because the people of 1928 were smarter and more competent than the current crop of humanity. As an artist you're in the top 20% of humanity or higher so you can grift or dominate your way thru societies loopholes as that's been an artist's nature since painting in caves.
    Artists understand branding, they understand maximum results from a minimum of work, we understand narcissism, vanity and ambition. Artists also know sloth and laziness but that's so easy to overcome when YOU are your own investment.

My compromised health has really made me aware of my changing role in society, I'm getting older. I'm weaker, and the unpredictable nature of my condition means the next couple of years will render me to a small area where I'm always near the hospital.

Luckily I live within 4 minutes of the hospital in a nearly 5000sf manor so being house-bound is not as bad as it may be for others. The privileges I enjoy come from hard work, intelligent decisions and from the life lessons learned in the Scouts, the entrepreneurial spirit taught to me by my patriarch and the utter lack of dependence by inheritance, government or charity.

I mentor, I take care of my friends, and I'm the named patriarch of my family with my parents blessing. I am am the prototypical Alpha male, never divorced with a wife that's a true "ride or die chick", I own a few homes, have a few million in assets and have not worked for anyone in 30yrs... I'm the master and commander of my life and those involved in it. I don't collect a paycheck, I hand them out.

I'm not happy though...
I'm not allowed to eat what I want.... My health is making me it's bitch and I'm freaking out. I'm picky, and get nauseous constantly. I'm on prescription anti-nausea medicines, antacids, pressure and diabetic pills and Insulin. My stomach linings gone and recovery takes time....doctor told me it's not bad if a shark loses a tooth, it's worse if they lose a whole row, and critical if they lose 20 rows....that's what I did to my stomach.

I thought the booze just destroyed my liver, 2 years sober and my stomach is still destroyed with full recovery being years away!

I feel like I'm starving, hunger hurts. I've never been hungry, my wife always kept me fed but now I wake up hungry...my wife is sleeping and I have no one to get me food. I don't know how to cook for myself, and I frantically look about for food in the pantry. I got so hungry this morning I yelled at my wife demanding ice cream, ice cream for heavens sake. Like I was some starving lunatic on a desert island.

Food, is not something I ever considered really worth my time...just something to finish quickly and move on to more cerebral activities. I hate food, I hate hunger and I hate that I'm a slave to my health and so dependent on my wife.

I'm so lucky to be married to an Alpha female. She's a genius, and has learned to be my nurse, do my injections and cook a whole new menu that are the bright times of the day. I was scared in the hospital as I could not put the food down but Ally can adapt anything to my gluten-free/nut free/sugarfree/acid free diet. She co-runs a multi million dollar company, was a 4.0 student and is a natural musician of more than a few instruments so she never surprises me.

She realized my depression and frustration of my changing role and has helped me reestablish myself as a country gentleman in the English tradition. She bought me some new new suits as I'm now slimmer and can't fit in my old suits. She even got me my favorite type of gentleman adventurer suits from Duluth trading in "firehose canvas" as it's so easy to care for and can be worn everywhere. She bought me some Mont blanc pens and cuff-links as they are my favorite pens, a couple of mechanical watches that are more daring then I normally wear and some other accessories outside my normal style... She knows how to boost my confidence. Displaying style is a great way to feel confident in any situation.

I'm changing my style from homburg and long wool coat and suit, diving watch, work shoe and bright bombastic silk ties to something more classy and less demonstrative of power. Simpler suits, linen and some tweed. Move from homburg to duckbill cap, much more suited to estate life of a country gentleman where the Homburg is for the boss at work...a duty I don't plan to do for the next few years as I'm going to simply run things from my home office. I'm planning on getting some seersucker suits and some more modernized colored versions a place in my wardrobe.

I'll wear the Rolex to weddings, but I'm in landlocked Montana so it's silly to wear a diving watch... There are so many new mechanical watch startups selling really interesting watches that are truly beautiful with an aesthetic that rivals the past. I'm eclectic with ties from Jerry Garcia to Armani to Donald Trump collection but I'm thinking of going back to an ascot. Ascots are cool, and less common. As a young boy I wore an ascot, inspired by Thurston Howell on Gilligan's Island. I also wore seersucker suits often as as a young master back in the 70's, always with a vest of course.

I prefer cufflink shirts but I've decided to stop wearing the human bone cufflinks and tie-clip and just go designer. I like mont blanc because of my German heritage and it's a product I endorse as the smoothest ink out there. Plus it's high end to those in the know, but are very simple and modest. It's less flashy and more fitting for me getting older.

Shoes, I'm going to stop wearing workshoes with suits... My wife just bought me 15 more sets of shoe stretchers to keep my good shoes in condition and I'm going to go with a mix of small production and handmade shoes as I don't want shoes people can recognize and I'm looking for a 1920's-30's look overall.

Coats..need to be wool or cashmere, and preferably an english tweed. I'm wanting something gray to mottled green-gray but due to me being tall (almost 6'3") I have limited choices. It needs to be Montana tough and that means warm with an umbrella pocket and gloves pocket.

Sunglasses are going from aviators to wayfarers as I'm not a pilot, and fighting my urge to go with bright colored lens. I might get a pair of vintage 1920-30s glasses and have non prescription polarized sunglasses installed in the frames...it will be a change in style.

Why is image so important to me with confidence? It's simple, you're treated better by doctors, nurses and everyone when you stand out from the crowd and show affluence. Wearing a suit shows respect to others and it's reciprocated and appreciated by any professional. These are the most important people to our existence and can be seen as a way of being prepared.

It can be life or death, but mostly it's preferential treatment as you're already extending them respect. I have a fear of male doctors and only trust women when it comes to medical care. I just don't feel men have the empathy and natural ability in medicine as men and women are different. Certainly men have natural advantages in some fields as do women, and men can be highly skilled doctors...my experience is that women are simply better on average, and in general than men in medicine.

I'm getting a nutritionist, a diabetic podiatrist, a physical therapist, a diabetes specialist, a liver specialist and whatever else they say I should have, so I wanna look good. I want them confident to bill my insurance and know I can cover whatever else might be needed. I know I can't wear a suit to physical therapy, but I sell high end pro sports jerseys,coats ect that won't be a problem.

I hated wearing that hospital gown, rendered generic and forced to walk with a walker with a belt around me for the nurse to keep me from falling. So helpless, so useless, constantly repeating your name and birth date at every shot or pill like some inmate in a mental ward...I know, first world problems, but it does not change the fact that I was unprepared and unused to difficulty so it made it tough.

The hospital was wonderful, I had a private room with a chair-bed for my wife, who was there constantly and only left to cook and bring me meals as we live so close. The floors were amazing, decor tasteful and bathroom incredible. A private sink, closet and desk area. Great internet,television and music choices and outstanding service, they even catered to my phobias. They made me feel safe at my weakest, and I don't accept others help.

I had to accept help, it let me grow in a way, as I would die without it. It let me depend on my wife now in ways that I thought I could not do. She's in full research mode, and she knows how to research and I trust she's gonna get me through this. I'm gonna bitch and complain about drinking water and eating this and that but I'm gonna follow her lead in this. I'll exercise more, I'll eat what she tells me, and take my pills and shot when she tells me. If I feel weird i'll not make excuses and let her drive me to the hospital. I'll eat lentils and other odd things my wife makes as "tacos" and learn to enjoy it...because ultimately it's an expression of my wifes love and I really do enjoy most of what Ally makes me.

Plus i'm really enjoying my overprotective clingy kitten that keeps checking if i'm dead...

Call me the Prior
Artist | Varied
United States
Greetings, Mortals to my humble page.

Who am I
I'm a successful conservative Libertarian, egoist millionaire, and aloof recluse living in the City of Bozeman in the south-east hills 5 minutes from Downtown. My wife and I went from $10K in pocket to where we are now in 10yrs, God bless the American Dream!

I'm a pious Catholic artist (and horror artist) of German/Irish decent and I've been with my amazing wife since 89. I'm a diabetic, and my mood moves with my blood sugar. We don't attend church, but maintain a home chapel.

We have no children, as we both are too selfish and codependent with each-other that we realized a child would just be a distraction to us. We dealt with children as children, why deal with them now?

We are madly in love and best friends and just prefer the company of each-other.

My wife and I own our own company and own a few of pieces of property in Bozeman where we live. Our store can be found on Main Street and we live a humble yet opulent life in our dream house, Arkham Mansion.

I'm an artist and a gamer and look to soon publish some RPG supplements (Mostly based on Lovecraft under my side company Arkham Antiquities). Currently we are concentrating on getting our Hyborian Collection, of functional prop weapons, and gear from our home foundry and smithy up.

I make a very good living running an unconnected corporation so making a profit in the publishing/propmaking industry is unimportant, it's more of a labor of love than anything else. I expect to make money....but profits are just gravy to my primary income.

What is Arkham Antiquities
It will be a publisher of Lovecraftian RPG weapons, props, adventures and supplements for ANY game based on H.P. Lovecrafts writing and works in common as well as those of R.E. Howard.

A prop house and art house of Cthuliana and esoteric art.

Much much more...

Style
I'm developed my own style I'll get a drawing to where I basically want, make copies and experiment adding on so as not to destroy my progress, scanning and re-scanning as I add layers. It adds depth and eases my nerves.

I see art as a way of life, I sculpt and carve stone,plaster,clay,wood and whatever can be worked. I draw and paint. Most of my painting is using medieval methods with egg tempera paints that I make.

I carve soapstone molds to cast pewter jewelry, buckles, pilgrims badges and other medieval and RPG themed items. I work bone from dinosaur to human, and ivory from narwhal to mammoth.

I'm a carpenter and woodworker, I make furniture and can pretty much build anything given the time. That said I'd rather hire others as it gives me more time to spend with the wife.

Other
I own a large collection of Firearms, from Broomhandled Mauser to Tommygun to AK47 to AR15s and an AR10. I collect militaria, antique books and anything related to Call of Cthulhu or R.E. Howard.

I hate noise, and thus the suburbs as many in the suburbs show little class in controlling barking dogs, or worse their yelling idiotic children. (Parasites who only raise property taxes by spawning more, lol) .

I hate the suburbs, the culture or lack of it as it debases the soul and brings a crudeness to my life. This is why I moved from the Suburbs to the Hills in true roman use of the word.

Other men can be stacked as cord wood in the city or suburbs drowning in the mire of clamor, a septic tank containing the din of the masses...but I'm an Artist and need spacious and broad vistas. When I need the toile...city it's just 5 minutes away. With zero backups.

Interests
Everything's going A-OK. Just met my nutritionist yesterday, (all free and covered by insurance of course) and had a productive meeting. We addressed the right supplements and SAMe treatments for alcohol induced cirrhosis and talked for hours.

This is something I can do, and my wife is carrying most of the load...remembering when I get my multitude of pills, injecting me with insulin and developing diabetic friendly, Gluten free, pizza, Chinese food, even cookie recipes to make it easier.

We spend 24 hours a day with each-other, playing, watching movies, fooling-around, watching tv and occasionally working... answering emails, annoying customers asinine questions and dealing with returns. We print up labels at night, leave them outside and an employee picks them up while we sleep and takes them to the warehouse. All our work, takes place at home..in our bedroom "office".

Currently we are redesigning the bedroom, and going with a turn of the century nautical theme all in cherry wood, keeping in mind it must be cat safe...as our kittens a climber and the bedroom ceilings 12 foot tall. I'm still waiting on a desk and vanity desk I ordered Ally

So no big book today of a post, as this day belongs to my wife. She's returning things to Amazon as I write this, we have been on an amazon spree of late. Why are socks so small? Why can't properly sized socks be made for mens feet...Amazon sucks for socks FYI. Shoes they are great for, socks no...
