LOL XIII - Yes, I'm Here

Wow, I almost missed it. Happy belated Love Our Lurkers Day, everyone.

I notice that my browser no longer tags the word "Lurkers" as a misspelling. Now there's a recognition. I would like to add my voice to all of the other spanko bloggers who are celebrating our beloved silent visitors. Thank you for your readership and your support.

For the full scoop on LOL Day XIII, I invite you to consult our friend and all around resource, Hermione, who keeps this fun tradition alive.

Advent Calendar

Ready or not, the holiday routine is beginning again. My survival strategy involves lots of spankings. As you can see above, even vanilla items become spanky in my mind. If you see something other than wine bottles, you too might be a spanko!

An Autumnal Ramble

Hi friends and happy fall!

There are several kinds of posts that I share on this blog. These include stories, observations, letters, and news. Since I’ve been absent for a while, this post is going to be a little bit of everything.

I celebrated a non-milestone birthday in September. When my birthday falls on our regular spanking night, there must be two spankings. Or so I am told. Fortunately, my dear Randy used a favorite leather paddle that left me feeling warm and toasty. That was the first one anyway. The nightcap involved wood and was considerably less comfy. But it was a fine percussive birthday celebration.

As much as I’d like to ignore the implications of these mounting years, there’s no denying that we are getting old(er). The prospect of watching our energy, our lifestyle, and ultimately our lives slip away gnaws at me. There is no appeal and only one way out. Yet for now, Randy and I are mostly healthy and the compromises we’ve made are minor. We are very much aware that each day together is precious.

Four days before my birthday was the thirteenth anniversary of my first MBS post. Back then, I was searching for a way to share my spanking stories with the world. I guess I found it, and a whole lot more.

I’ve spent a lot of time lately weeding the unruly garden I call blogrolls. I use an automated link checker site to identify links that no longer valid. To my dismay, I discovered recently that it doesn’t always tell me about many blogs that are deleted, private, or have no content. So I returned to manual checks. Should you find bad links, I would greatly appreciate learning about them.

I still receive interesting messages, even though I don’t post very often. Some people want my advice (I don’t know where you can find a woman to spank you) or just want to be my friend (Hi!). Others wonder if we’re still spanking (we are). Most of the time, I’m pleased to talk with readers.

Some questions, though, make me wonder:

your rear end is gorgeous.Has it changed at all?

If I told you that my bottom is exactly the same size and shape it was when I was twenty, you wouldn’t believe me. So I won’t say that.

Diving into deeper waters, there’s this:

Would Randy ever open a fansonly site with spanking pics and vids of you? Since only private subscribers can see, your frends & family would never know?? You could make good income

Uh, no. Even for readers who say they want to see that, I have to think it would become monotonous fairly quickly.

Meanwhile, we have FetLife:

I'd love to spank you.

May I please spank you sometime?

I see that you like to be spanked. I love to give spankings. Perhaps we can get together and help each other out.

My FL profile says, “I am a straight monogamous spanko bottom. I enjoy talking with like-minded friends, but I play only with my husband.” I think these words are very clear, but only when people read them.

Randy’s latest video project involves interviewing me on camera before and after spankings. He asks many questions (How do spankings make you feel? They make my butt hurt). Sometimes, I start giggling in the middle of it. That, of course, leads to more spankings for me to talk about. It’s a vicious cycle.

In other news, our daughter recently moved much closer to us. We now get to see our sweet granddaughter almost every week. We have so much to discuss.

I guess that’s enough for now. May your harvest be bountiful.

You Want What?

Randy and I were watching television the other night. He was doing that annoying channel surfing thing that men seem to enjoy. He stopped on a movie channel for just long enough to hear a female character whisper, "I want you to spank me."

"Now we're talking," he declared. "Don't get your hopes up," I cautioned as I had seen the name of the movie displayed. It was Fifty Shades Darker. I've purposely avoided both the books and the films on the recommendation of friends I trust. But we were there and it was on.

After tying her wrists, the male character guided his partner down to the bed where he dramatically delivered exactly four smacks with his hand. Thirty seconds later, the woman was untied and flipped over, and they were having sex.

"What?" I exclaimed. "Four swats?" "He tied her up for that?" Randy concurred. "If you ask me for a spanking, it's going to be more than four wimpy swats." I should certainly hope so.  Maybe the real spanking was edited out for time, or more likely, perhaps there weren't any actual spankos involved with the script/storyboard.  This must be how vanilla people envision kink.

He quickly skipped to the next channel with a disgusted, "Ugh."

Later that evening, I seized the opportunity to repeat the words that had once held so much promise.  "I want you to spank me."  He did, and I can assure you that it was more that four hand swats.

Afterward, we joked that they may have fifty shades of gray, but apparently precious few shades of pink.

Fun with Google

You've probably encountered Google Search's sometimes helpful, sometimes baffling, autocomplete feature. If you type in part of a search phrase, a number of popular alternatives are displayed below. For example, when I enter my first name, several unremarkable alternatives appear.

Suppose we try some spanko related partial queries?  Well, see for yourself...

Some of these phrases are so bizarre that they don't even need punchlines.  If you ever feel as though your life needs a bit more strangeness, I invite you to conduct your own Google Search autocomplete experiments.

Erica Scott Returns!

It's my pleasure to announce that our wonderful friend and spanko superstar, Erica Scott, has recently returned to blogging. Her blog, Erica Scott: Life, Love, and Spanking, is a thoughtful life journal, an insightful discussion forum, and a fun place to visit.

Erica is truly one of a kind. As described in her autobiography, she started her career as a spanking model at an age when most others have either retired or become tops. Years later, Erica remains active and is as popular as ever. Her performances sparkle with her clever snark and wit. Erica's genuine love for posterior persuasion is evident in every scene.

I invite you to welcome our dear colleague back to our blogging community.

There's Gold in Them Thar Posts (apparently)

A reader sent me this screen shot last week.

It seems that someone wants to sell my blog at a greatly reduced price. I really wish they had talked with me first.

But what I'm really curious about is how the free shipping works.
