Streetcar Sundays –67

I’ve been trying to cram everything in that I can this weekend, which is a little bit tough because Ebay have a sellers promotion running right now and I have to try and get as much listed by the time that I go to bed tonight as I can. There is this mass of photos that have individual value and I want them all up today. I won’t spam you with them, but as it is a hobby of mine and I’m likely to make a career out of it, here are a couple of preview pics of some of the items I have listed this week. The spanking stuff continues below these photos from the 1940’s.

Even at 53 years old, there is one video game that I play. It is release week this week for the 2017 version but it has been a real cluster. I paid out $100 for the super deluxe version of FIFA 17, eagerly awaited the web app that comes with the game and is vital for building your team before the game starts, only to find out that they only invited a select few to the web app. It is quite a community storm because now, a large portion of players are going to have a major advantage on those of us who can’t get in. Mind you, at my age and with my reflexes, it wouldn’t have mattered much anyway  🙂

Right, spanking time!! How many of you dread those words?

I’ve kept my time on Fetlife down to a minimum this week since rejoining. I’ll pop in there from time to time to say hello and of course there are a lot of old friends who want to keep up, but I won’t be there for very long each day. I just need to have the profile active and ready. Today actually I posted the last spanking picture that I took when Pixie and I visited the city and I spanked her with the Empire State building as the backdrop.

Now for the weekly Sunday spanking photo ans as is normal for a Sunday, I’m going for a MEN ARE LIKE STREETCARS spanking pic. Now I know the story, and I know what happens, but my mind wants to think that her friend behind her has just had a helpful suggestion that she thinks will improve the spanking. Perhaps a hairbrush?

Anyway, the pic is from 1952 and will be added to my MEN ARE LIKE STREETCARS spanking folder.

Windsor Wednesday Classic – 108

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.

Streetcar Sundays –66

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.

Windsor Wednesday Classic –107

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.

Windsor’s Sunday Candids – 55

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.

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.

This week’s MEN ARE LIKE STREETCARS spanking photo comes from Plattsmouth, NE in 1955.

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.

Windsor finally makes a return!!

Where have I been? Same as always really, a little bit of work out of State, constantly working on my Ebay page and smashing the snot out of it, as well as my normal working hours. As I have often stated though, this blog will always be here. I won’t always be able to update as frequently as I would like, but there will also be other times where I will be uploading daily.

Anyway, photo number 64 in the MEN ARE LIKE STREETCARS spanking series, click the link for the other 63.

Papa Spanks

If you have been following along you will know that aside from my regular 9 to 9 job (I’m not even joking) I have been setting up my own little side business buying and selling on Ebay. It’s like having that last spoonful of desert,where you have perhaps bitten off just a bit more than you can chew. I’m trying to get a thousand items in my store but people keep buying shit and I haven’t even reached 100 yet. If you want to check out the vintage pictures and postcards I am selling you can do so by clicking the link below.

RICHARD WINDSOR’S EBAY LISTINGS

Normally on a Saturday I hit the thrift shops but that can kiss my butt today, it is going to reach near 100 degrees in New York today. So instead I will work a bit more on my store. There was a couple of mistakes that I made early on, including two sales where I was out of pocket, but when you break it down it is easy to do. Shipping is $2.45 flat, Ebay takes 10% on all sales, Paypal takes 10% on all sales, then I have to buy the materials and of course the photos. So before I even start I have to weigh in that each item will set me back at least $5 before I even list it.

Anyway, I don’t want this all to be about Ebay, only one additional piece, the spanking photo that I am selling ends tonight 🙂

TWO GIRLS SPANKING LINK

Now a long time ago I used to do either a Saturday morning newspaper or comic book spanking post. The comic book spankings are done in many places now, but nobody borrowed my idea of newspaper spankings. By that I mean posts, my newspaper clippings themselves get borrowed frequently, normally under the banner of  “I have no idea where this came from” 🙂

So in order of fairness, I will tell you exactly where this clipping came from. It came from the Milwaukee Sentinel on March the 17th, 1929, enjoy. It is a monster sized article so be sure to click on the image for the full sized version.

Windsor’s Sunday Candids –54

Before I get started today, stuntman posted a link in the comments to the video of my midweek post about the movie  “The hard boiled canary“. You can watch the spanking portion of the video by clicking this link.

After the spanking pic today you can keep scrolling down for a vanilla update on my other project.

So what naughty girl is getting the spanking that she deserves today? Well if I’m totally truthful, this girl has got it before on this blog, but I have come across a better picture of that spanking so it is time for an update. Now the person who originally alerted me to this pic was will@gotham56, so I will give him full credit for the find.

This spanking pic goes back to 1946 and of course is from the play  “ACT YOUR AGE”. It is like the biggest tease in the world, dude, just flip that little skirt up already!!

This copy will be added to my ACT YOUR AGE spanking folder.

Act Your Age 1946

As for the vanilla front, I now have a collection of over 500 vintage pics in my collection, and I have started putting them up for sale. Yesterday I got my first two sales, proving that you can get money for old rope. The first pic went for $5.79 and the second one, from my personal spanking collection, went for $9.99.

My goal is to accumulate around ten thousand pics (not as crazy as it sounds), set up a web store, rent market stalls and sell online and who knows, maybe one day I can run my own little business. I’m also hoping to go flea marketing shopping with Pixie one day, that would be a lot of fun. Because of my work schedule though I haven’t even spoken to her for about six weeks. Vintage photograph shopping and wooden spoons and paddles, sounds like a day out to me.

Streetcar Sundays – 63

Happy July the 4th to all of my American friends, and as I have spent more than half my life here I have a number of them. This weekend I have been enjoying my little side hobby and I went shopping at a vintage store today to pick up some old photographs. I managed to cull 23 of them and the dude charged me $11.50, which makes me feel a teeny bit guilty knowing that I am selling them for around the $5 mark. I will say this though, I put some serious effort into searching that photo bin. There was a goal that I had in mind, pics from the 1940’s and 1950’s that featured either a car with people in a pic, or females in vintage swimsuits. Before we get to the spanking photo, here are just a couple of my finds from today to share that little side hobby with you. Click on these pics if you wish to see the full sized version.

Now I am selling pics on Ebay, but I’m not going to link to that. Don’t need to get any creepy vibes from there. When I set up my Etsy store I will link to that to share my side hobby as I now have hundreds of vintage pics, and I run a vintage group on Facebook that has nearly 20,000 members as well.

So anyway, thank you for indulging me, it is always nice to have a side hobby and of course I will share some of my really good vanilla finds as time goes on, but from this day forward they will be at the bottom of the spanking stuff.

This weeks MEN ARE LIKE STREETCARS pic is from 1954, and as always I will add it to the Streetcars spanking folder which you can access by clicking on the highlighted text.
