Have you ever heard the analogy “A team of wild horses couldn’t hold me back”? That’s been me this week. There is a serious issue that I needed to deal with, so, miracles upon miracles, I reactivated my Fetlife account this week. On Fet I have engaged in some light hearted banter with old friends, but I’m trying to stay away if I can because it isn’t healthy.
For this weeks’ Wednesday classic, I know, I know, I’m a day late, we are going to go back to 1963 and a spanking scene from the ever popular play “Act your age”
As always, this will be added to my ACT YOUR AGE spanking folder which is worth checking out for some awesome pics. Just click the highlighted text.
My goal today had been to do a bit of a vanilla post along with the regular Men Are Like Streetcars spanking pic. What I had intended to do was post a full review of the British TV series “Accused”. Yesterday I had downloaded all of the photos from all ten episodes and I was getting ready to review each episode of what I consider to be one of the best shows that I have seen in a long time. Now while I can’t do that today, it was actually funny when I was downloading pics for the post.
Once I was done with the DVD I gave it away to a friend of mine, but as I was downloading pics yesterday it suddenly dawned on me, I hadn’t watched the final episode of series one, lol. I must have been so eager to watch Sean Bean and Stephen Graham in season 2 that I obviously skipped ahead and forgot to go back. I will still do a review and a non spoiler synopsis for each episode, but I highly recommend you guys getting a hold of it. Many of my American friends tuned in after I told them about it and almost unanimously they loved it.
Part of the reason for skipping the review today is that I am trying to catch up on Ebay. My goal has been to keep a thousand dollars of sales active at any given point, hopefully two thousand if I can ever get there, but the photos sell so quickly that it is hard to keep up with the demand. The good part though is that I am sat on thousands of old photos and the collection will grow and grow over the years to the point that one day I will probably be able to make it a career. I’m not thinking anytime soon, but maybe in ten years or so when I am ready to retire it will be a good time to have my own career to fall back on. I’m pulling in $500 or more per month based on a forward projection, but that is doing it part time and mainly on weekends. If this was something that I could devote four or five hours a day to, I could probably make it work financially.
Anyway, time for a spanking!! This week’s MEN ARE LIKE STREETCARS spanking pic is from the rather late year of 1965 and is from Cambridge, Ohio.
There is this huge folder that I have on my external hard drive that contains completely weird spanking paraphernalia, and on this drive I have only a little bit. Thing is, these items will never see the light of day because quite frankly they aren’t exactly wonderful spanking pics.
So what I think I will do this weekend is post a few in batches for the weeks ahead and pre post them all on Friday’s. There will always be something of interest to someone. Here is a t-shirt that I am just sure some of you girls would love to wear in public!! Works better for the ladies who really don’t want to wear it 🙂
It is with trepidation that I write this, because it always gives me trauma that people aren’t going to understand what I say and will leave a comment offering support when none is required or wanted. Don’t make me add your IP address to the spam list and have your comments swallowed up by the hungry cyber bin 🙂
It was this time last year when my Brother texted me to let me know that our mom was now entering her final phase with cancer. She did live for another two weeks but it was this day last year that it all became too much for my Brother and he needed to talk. The two of us have always been really close and as I hadn’t had to deal with even the smallest fraction of what he had to deal with, my role was to be the counselor. Today I was reading through his texts and smiling a little bit at our conversations, and then I got to the final one which still to this day gives me a laugh, though I will never tell him.
It was on the 25th that he called me to say that this was it, the final days had approached. To give him a break I started calling the family members, for two reasons really. Firstly to give my brother a break, but also to give them a little surprise being that they hadn’t spoken to me in years. Thank goodness that I have a Cardiff phone number through my work, lol. Anyway, I spoke to mom on the Sunday and soon after she slipped into a coma. I’m sure a lot of you have been through this already so I don’t need to tell you how harrowing it is, with the news just getting worse and worse each day for weeks on end. Anyway, my Brother had to deal with everything from day 1 and I said to him, because we knew that it could come at any minute, I said just to send me a text when it finally happens and I will start making the phone calls and catch up with him later.
So he did, he sent me that text, and whereas I would have loved a “She fought a tough fight, Rich, but she is gone now”, that wasn’t my Brother’s style. Nope, in the text he proceeded to give me a play by play of exactly what happened and how awful the final hours were. It’s really funny, but I can’t help but laugh at that text. He finishes with “I know it is tough reading, Rich, but I thought that you would like to know”. In my best Ricky Gervais voice I was like “Nnnnnnno, a simple ‘at peace’ would have done it”. It is strange the things that make you laugh, and I knew he meant well, but I would never tell him that it was just a little much TMI as a final notice 🙂
So please, no sympathy or anything like that. I don’t dwell on the past and I’m content with everything. It is like any anniversary, you look back and reflect a little bit. So I re-read that final text and nitpicked it “Ya coulda skipped that part, and that, eased up on that one, lol”
My spanking photo for this week is from KISS ME KATE, and as you know I am not a big fan of Kate pics by any means. However, in this one it actually looks like the skirt is thin enough that she might actually feel it a little bit.
This is from Lansdowne, PA in 1955 and will be added to my KISS ME KATE spanking folder, where I must say you will find a collection of some of the best Kiss Me Kate spanking pics out there, from a vintage standpoint that is.
September the 11th in New York City is always a time to reflect and ponder, indeed it is wherever you are in the world. I will still see news clips here and there but I have never actively gone out of my way to watch any footage of the events since the week that it happened. Why would I, I watched the towers fall in person.
As with most people I can remember the events of that day clearly. My late brother calling me to tell me what was happening as I lay in bed reading a book, standing in the street with half the neighborhood as mothers ran to get their children and fighter jets flew overhead, the white cloud that hung over New York for the week afterwards. What I most remember though is watching everyday folk on TV searching for their loved ones in the days that followed, it was heartbreaking. A friend of mine was a police officer at the time and he worked at Ground Zero from the day it happened until six months later, he is now a vegetarian chef and this week he wrote about his memories. If you are interested in reading about the humanity that some people showed to those working at Ground Zero it is worth reading HIS ARTICLE.
My Sunday candid this week is from Plattville, CO in 1947 and features the play Damsels in Distress. This isn’t the best photo out there, but it is a part of the history of stage spankings so it has to be included at some point.
This will be added to my VARIOUS SCHOOL PLAYS folder where you will find the rest of the spanking photos from this play.
Okay, so the photos today aren’t going to be that weird, but the all have something unique about them. It is like 5.28am on a Saturday, I’m up bright and early for the footie as we have both the Old Firm derby in Glasgow of Celtic and Rangers, and shortly after that it is the Manchester derby between United and City. You really can’t beat the Old Firm derby so for the most part my focus will be on that, so that one will be on my PC and in the background I will have United-City on the TV. Speaking of derby’s, my Swindon also travel to Oxford today for the A420 derby. Now the only people paying attention to that will be Oxford and Swindon fans, but if you are interested in reading about the rivalry you can DO SO HERE. Interestingly the guy they interview in the article I have played both against and as a teammate many moons ago. In fact it was against his team that I scored my first ever goal, albeit a penalty. I played left back for the seven years that I played between 1979 and 1985, and I was a defensive defender due to my lack of height, so goal opportunities might be one or two for the entire season. Anyway, after that game I became the regular penalty taker for the team for 84/85 and bagged a few goals, and miracle upon miracle, one day I played in the midfield and scored my only open field goal with a header. The thing that I remember about that game is that it was tipping down, and a hundred yards away my dad was sat in his car watching the game. Until that point I had no idea whatsoever that from time to time my dad would come and watch me play.
Anyway, spanking time, right? I don’t mind writing a bit of vanilla tales here and there, but I don’t want to get carried away with it, I know for the most part you are all here for the spanking pics. So today I went to my folder where I put spanking pics that I’m never likely to use, and sorted out six that might have some interest to you.
The first one features Nikki Sixx spanking some lady with a hairbrush. Had it not said Motley Crue on top of the photo I would have been completely clueless that this was a mainstream photo, lol.
This next one I have had for years and was part of a set of two, but I have no idea where the other one is. From what I remember, and this is to the best of my knowledge, the man in the photo is the girl’s Grandfather (and a proud one at that by the looks of it) and he gave his granddaughter a whuppin’. The other photo only showed the Grandfather unbuckling his belt and the girl looking pensive, so you don’t actually see anything take place, but you can be the judge as to whether or not you think she got a whuppin’. My opinion, I wouldn’t post it if I didn’t think it happened.
Clearly the next photo is the weird part in the post’s title. You can make your own mind up as to what is going on, but something tells me it wasn’t the first time the girl getting spanked was in that position.
Photo number four is so old that it came from the days of Webshots, but I have never posted it before so here you have it. On one of my hard drives I have 100’s of old webshots photo that I will one day post.
Now time for you historians to get your thinking caps on, just what exactly do you think that the spanking implement is in this photo? My first thought was that it is a washboard of some type, but that is a bloody small one if it is. Is it a kitchen item?
And finally, just a reminder to all those girls who try to look at their presents early 😉
My Wednesday classic this week is a little different to my usual offering, and quite frankly I am cheating. Normally I have to edit what I give you, catalog it in a spreadsheet and then add links. The reason that I use a spreadsheet is that a few years from now the inevitable questions are going to come up as to their origin and I will be able to enlighten them. I mean shoot, people lift photos from this blog already and post them under the “No idea where this came from” category already, so science only knows what will happen when a few years pass 🙂
It is also the start of the fantasy football season which does take a bit of my spare time. Last year I won the 24 team, two conference dynasty league, and I think that I did it in time because I compare my roster to the other rosters this year and I have my work cut out. Just as a side note to that, in the 13 years that we have done this league, I’m the only team out of the 24 never to have posted a losing season since the beginning. At worst my record has been 500 and that was only once. Then I also had a draft this week for the league I have been in for 14 years. This league is a 16 team league and is as tough as can be. I won this one back in 2007 but haven’t come close since. This year though I think that I have drafted my best team in a long time. Remember for you fantasy football fans, there are 16 teams so imagine the dregs that are left for your second RB. Matched up against the other teams though I like what I have, a primary of Newton, Forte, CJ Anderson, Crabtree, Desean Jackson and Antonio Gates, plus on the bench I have Christine Michael, Chris Johnson, Tannehill etc, etc. Just trust me, for a 16 team league I did well this year.
Anyway, on to the spanking photo for this week. Like I said, I got a bit lazy because I have to start work super early tomorrow and I need to get to bed. So I snagged this one off of Ebay and even though cartoon spankings are not normally my thing, this one is pretty cool. My German friends should especially enjoy it. Maybe one of them can translate it for us all?
Here we go guys, I’m trying to get fully back into the swing of things and posting on a regular basis once again. I’ve mentioned to you many times, this blog isn’t going anywhere any time soon, I have a wealth of material to share with you all and I won’t be satisfied until I have done so.
Before the spanking photo this week, I just want to touch on a couple of vanilla items. Actually, you know what, I will post the spanking photo first, that way if you don’t want to hear my vanilla ramblings then you can just look at the photo and then go back to searching other spanking blogs. Under the photo though I will carry on with a combination of vanilla prose mixed with some spanking talk if you are interested.
First up I have a bit of early year end spanking news. This year is my tenth year of having this blog, think about that for a minute, 10 years!! It is one of the oldest spanking blogs out there, I think that there are about ten of us who have had a spanking blog for ten years or more. Anyway, every year since this blog has been in existence, the story of the first spanking that I ever gave has been the most popular story, year after year for every year I have had the blog. 1979 – THE FIRST SPANKING
This year is going to be different though, and like a presidential election I can call this result already, there will be a new story this year that will be the most read story of the year. Even though there is still four months of the year left, ELLEE’S STORY already has 50% more views than the second most read story which is the one above. ellee’s story has been read nearly 5,000 times this year while the first spanking has been read roughly 3,200 times this year. Ironically the story of ellee is also about meeting ellee for the first time and then playing with her the next time that we met.
Now some vanilla stuff. As anyone who knows me knows, I simply love old time music and films. It isn’t just spanking photos, this extends to my tastes outside of spanking. The other day I was listening to an old time British entertainer by the name of George Formby. George was a Ukulele player and was a huge star back in the 1930’s and 1940’s making many lightweight films showcasing his talent. As I was listening to him I also started to read about him and one thing that I never knew was that his dad was a top of the bill entertainer in the late 1800’s, early 1900’s. So I was fascinated as George Formby had always been a household name and I wanted to read up on his Father. Believe it or not, on Youtube there is a small collection of his Father’s recordings. So like a kid at Christmas I started to listen to them and I was blown away, for the primary reason that George Formby Jnr basically used the same act that his Father, George Formby Snr had used. Obviously the former refined the act, but it was basically the same act. Incidentally, one of the characters that George Formby Snr. created became the inspiration for Charlie Chaplin’s “Tramp” character. What a small world we live in. Now I don’t expect anyone to be remotely interested in the recording below from 1910, but for my British readers, you tell me if the first few lines that you hear isn’t the same sound as the George Formby we all know and love, albeit perhaps just a little slower. In fact part of the lyrics in the first song he gets caned at school, lol.
George Formby Snr. also created the phrase “It’s not the cough that carries you off, it’s the coffin they carries you off in!” and at the time of his death his diary revealed that he had full bookings already in place for the next five years. One final thing, I already own the box set of the entire known collection of George Formby Jnr’s recordings, it looks like I need to also start building my George Formby Snr. collection as well.
This morning I am probably going to listen to more of him as I sort through my vintage photos and before the England national football team bores me to death at noon USA time.
I’m trying my best to get back on schedule, even if it means posting at 6.30am before I go to work. My goal is to get back to posting two or three times a week and start sharing with you all the plethora of spanking material that I have. As you all know by now, I am running my own Ebay store and this month I earned $545 and that is only doing it on a part time basis. In fact I sold so much that I desperately need to replenish it this weekend. Fear not though, even though I am working on Saturday at my regular job, I will make time to update Friday and Sunday.
This week’s spanking classic will be added to my WINDSOR’S PADDLINGS folder. Check it out by clicking the highlighted text for a set of wonderful images just like this one.
It has been three weeks since I last posted which I think is the longest time that I have gone without posting. This would be a good point to reaffirm something though, this site is always going to be here. Even though there may be times where I don’t post as often, I have no plans to end the site, never have and I doubt I ever will, we are in this for the long run. Quite honestly, I have so much material to share with you that it would be a travesty if I ever thought of closing up shop.
One thing that I find pretty funny is that you guys can still find a survey lying around. Many months ago I pulled all of the survey’s due to ugly behavior. Even though I know that they were enjoyed due to the hundred’s of responses, indeed thousands of responses when they were all combined, I felt bad that you all had that enjoyment taken away from you. Somehow, some way though, every week somebody finds one, either asking for a free video or access to an online folder. Well it is Labor day weekend next week so maybe I will come up with something where I can give you all some videos for free. Now I just need to find out where they still appear so that I can edit them.
As you all probably know I am now doing my own business on Ebay, that is a primary reason why I haven’t had much free time. It has paid off really well though, so far this month I have sold over $500 of photos. Despite that, and the fact that I have a few hours of work to do today on the Ebay page, what I am going to try and do is I am going to try and post an entire week’s worth of material on here so that you have something to come back to every day. Pre-posting material isn’t ideal because at times the commentary can be out of date, but if I stick to spanking pictures then it should keep you happy.
