It has been far too long, hasn’t it? Just the other day I was thinking about my top ten lists for the year and then laughed at myself wondering if I have even made ten posts this year.
It’s just one of those things, my life is just very busy right now. Between my normal work and running back and forth to Boston every other week to close an office there, I’m not getting much time to myself. So as I once again hit the road this week I thought that I really should get something up for you all to enjoy.
If you want to keep up to date you can always follow me on Twitter, I’ll be out of town for the next week so unless I use my phone to post it might be a quiet week on here. MY TWITTER FEED.
So for this week I am going to delve into my archive for a play not posted here before, though I am sure Harry has either posted it or will do so in the near future.
This reminds me of the spanking scene in the film ‘Nice Girl’ with Robert Benchley and Ann Gillis. Certainly the outfit of the spankee is the same, nice thick housecoat, pajamas and probably panties as well. Come on guys, you need me to demonstrate for you?
It is 6am and I’m getting ready for work, but as I noted earlier I want to find the time to keep the blog updated as much as I can. So please pardon the shortness of the post, but I do want to get you something today.
As you can see from this post from the 1970’s, it takes three bullies to pin this girl down, though to be honest, she doesn’t seem to be putting up much of a struggle.
I’m a bit of a weird one, and this picture would explain exactly why. There is a definite touch of ‘Happy birthday to you’ going on here, but as to whether it is really a birthday spanking, nobody really knows.
Now why am I weird? It is because my vision goes far beyond what is a pretty average spanking pic to be honest with you. Let’s start with the biggest eye catcher of all, the dude’s shirt is frigging awesome man. Dollar signs that would no doubt merge into a small two color pattern via the Western piping. A dash of piping on the pocket, that is one seriously good looking shirt. I can see some head scratching going on here, but you have to remember that I am a big fan of the 1950’s and I know a good shirt when I see one.
The year is 1959, but I would have pretty much known that even if the date wasn’t on there. Why is that? It is because of the pencil skirt. As a spanko a pencil skirt always detracts from a spanking pic for me, because the imagination stops there. There is no chance in hell that you can picture that skirt coming up. I think that this is the reason that I dislike Kiss Me Kate spanking pics so much. First of all I’m not a big fan of period clothing to start with, but then you throw in a spanking and I can’t get my head around that it is nothing more than symbolic because the girl wouldn’t even feel a thing. That’s why I like the earlier 1950’s photos where there is at least a puncher’s chance that the skirt could come up. In my world even a birthday spanking should at least be given over the panties.
Anyway, here is the photo. I also happened to notice that he is wearing Argyle socks, a nameplate bracelet and the time is 7 minutes past 11, I’m just a tad obsessive 🙂
October the 9th already and I haven’t posted this month yet? Alright, so the first week was during the first anniversary of my mom losing her battle with cancer, so I posting wasn’t the top of my list of things to do. The rest of the small amount of free time that I have, well I have to be honest with you, FIFA 17 came out two weeks ago and I’ve used my free time playing it. For shame I know, but we all have to have a hobby, don’t we.
This week I am delving into the archive to bring you something unique. Have to ask you a question though, because I took the liberty to flip the picture horizontally to make it look like a right handed spanking, does it bother you as well when seeing spanking photos?
I’ve included the original so that you can not only see them both, but also you can see the work that I have to put in to clean the photos up. Stay tuned, I have an awful lot coming up real soon.
This photo is from Athens in 1950 and will be added to my spanking folder “MIND OF HER OWN”
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.
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.
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.
