Happy Spanksgiving – Read All About It

It hasn’t escaped my attention that for the last few months my posting schedule has been very poor. It’s funny actually, when looking back the same thing happened last year and then it exploded in December. Mind you, I was in Japan last year so I had more time on my hands. Will the heavy posting resume this year? I’m really not too sure to be honest with you, my vanilla project is taking a lot of my time and my focus is also totally on that. In fact it would be fair to say that I was questioning myself this week, wondering whether this is the beginning of the end of the blog.

My commitment had always been to continue until at least December 2021 and that hasn’t changed, that will be 15 years of blogging when we get to that point. Maybe things will change, I don’t know what the future holds. Because I have so much material to share it is possible that we might even go for 20 years πŸ™‚

The active scene is pretty dead to me right now, for the most part that is because of my travel plans. Before I get too old to do it anymore I want to see as much of the world as I can, and over the next three years I plan to travel extensively. I already have two trips to Asia planned, obviously I still have to go to England to collect my brothers ashes, and I also have two big European trips planned. It’s the main focus of my life right now, it far outweighs any thoughts of spanking and is actually something that is really positive in my life. I need to stay positive because I feel like I’m a powder keg ready to explode, and that is a side of me that I never want to show. So I eliminate all negative forces and focus solely on the positive.

My strong belief is that when I collect my brother’s ashes then my life will start to head in the right direction again. It is like I can’t close the door just yet and it needs to be closed, my mental health depends on it!!

Anyway, enough jibber jabber fool. Today I looked into my archive and I dug up a bunch of ancient newspaper articles to share with you for a happy spanksgiving. Enjoy, and don’t forget to be kind to each other. Be thankful for what you have!! If you click on each image then it should open to a much larger version for your entertainment.
