High Heels And A Cowboy Hat

I hope you all enjoyed the previous post with my "Springtime" song. Even though the temperature here in Minnesota has once again dropped making it seem very un-Spring like, the pictures and the song should help keep everyone warm.

I first heard that song on a trip out West in Colorado Springs, Colorado at a place called The Flying W Ranch. A working ranch by day, at night it was open to tourists who were given a chuckwagon supper--biscuit, beans, baked potato and sliced beef with gravy, and either coffee or lemonade to drink, served up on a tin plate and tin cup that had seen better days--and then the Flying W Wranglers top the evening off with their Western Stage Show outdoors under the stars (or at an indoor facility if the weather doesn't cooperate), a mix of cowboy classics, some newer songs like the one I posted, and humor. I remember only vague details, but the humor was corny and the music had some of the sweetest harmony you can imagine.

The Flying W still operates today, and at 54 years, the Flying W Wranglers are the second oldest western singing group. Needless to say, the group has undergone a number of personnel changes (and the food is probably better, too) but if you're going to be in Colorado, you might want to make this one of your stops.

Anyway--didn't mean for this to turn into an ad for the Flying W--back to the post with the song. I considered a number of photos to use with the song--most of them found onthe web site Cu-Cu, I believe--and wound up with more pictures than I needed. My first thought was for all the photos to be of ladies in cowboy hats. It seemed appropriate. I eventually settled on two photos with hats, and two without, and I'm happy with the ones I picked.

And yes, I did consider turning the song into a parody, using the word "spanking" in place of "chasing". Ultimately I dropped that idea, figuring the lyrics of the original song were cute enough and would suffice, especially with the photos interspersed between the verses and the chorus.

Here, just for the heck of it, are the photos I considered but didn't use. And believe me, the last two were strong contenders right to the very end!

I Feel A Song Coming On

Well, it's Springtime in the mountains and I'm full of mountain dew

Can't even read my catalog like I used to do

I'm sitting in that little shed just right back of the house

Here comes Jake with all his hounds, he's gonna hear me shout

Oh, I won't go hunting with you, Jake, but I'll go chasing women

Go put them hounds back in their pen and quit that silly grinning

The moon is bright and I'm half-tight, my life is just beginning

I won't go hunting with you, Jake, but I'll go chasing women

I went down to the General Store and what do you think I seen

They make it in the city and it's called a magazine

I turned to page thirty-two and lookee what I found

Them gals wear clothes that we ain't seen beneath their gingham gowns

So I won't go hunting with you, Jake, but I'll go chasing women

Go put them hounds back in their pen and quit that silly grinning

The moon is bright and I'm half-tight, my life is just beginning

I won't go hunting with you, Jake, but I'll go chasing women

("I won't go hunting with you, Jake (but I'll go chasing women)" written by Stuart Hamblen--also attributed to "Stuart Hamblin" and to "Russ Hamblin". Recorded by Jimmy Dean and others. There are more verses to this song, but these are the two I remember. And, as promised, it does at least mention, "Springtime") :-)

The Best Laid Plans

Last week was rather nice here in Minnesota. The temperatures were mostly in the 60s and approaching 70, the sun was out, there weren't that many clouds in the sky on any given day. It truly felt like Spring. (I know that, technically, Spring began about a month ago, but this is Minnesota--it could still snow! "Spring" tends to be like an illusion in this state--more of a rumor than an actual season. And before you know it, we slide bang right into summer and then it starts snowing again shortly after that.)

Anyway--inspired by the nice weather, I was thinking about doing a "song" post. Not a song parody, just the lyrics from some song about Spring, or at the very least had the word "Spring" in it somewhere, and then illustrate it with several photos of lovely and spankable bare-bottomed girls, which I seem to have in abundance. I spent a few days picking out the photos and was narrowing down the search for a song. Then the weekend came, and the temperature plummetted 20 to 30 degrees.

My thoughts quickly went from bare-bottomed girls to long-sleeved shirts and an extra blanket for the bed. Heck, even one of those goofy "blankets with sleeves" was starting to look good.

So, the song idea is scrapped for now. Now, what should we do while riding out the crappy weather?

How about checking out some blogs? I've added seven to the blog roll. You're bound to find something there that you'll enjoy. Here's the list:

ZED and ginger


Dante's Paradiso

A Spanking Good Time

MarQe's Study


Jflame's Journey

There really is something there for everyone. Interested in Domestic Discipline? "ZED and ginger" and "LDD-4-Me" are the ones you want. If you like pictures, you'll like "MarQe's Study", as he works hard to find the best photos and bring them to you--photos that you haven't seen a million times before. "Dante's Paradiso" is a good read, and any topic--not just spanking--is fair game, and "A Spanking Good Time" is his wife's blog. "Yeowch" does it's best to put the fun back in spanking and keep it there. I can identify with that, as I always say that my blog is primarily meant to be fun. Be sure to go to his story archives and check out the episode of "Friends" that he wrote, wherein Ross and Rachel--well, go see for yourself.

Last up is "Jflame's Journey", a blog that has a lot in common with my own. The main thrust is spanking, but not every post is about that....and most of all, it's meant to be fun (that word again!) I think you'll enjoy reading it.

For that matter, I think you'll enjoy all of them. So, get reading! There are links to all of these blogs to the right under the heading, "More Blogs I Read". If you like what you see, please leave a comment saying so. All bloggers love comments!

And last, but certainly not least--tell them Dr. Ken sent you. :-)

Word Power

I once had a lovely red-haired girl make some comment teasing me about my age. I'm sure it will come as no surprise that my response was along the lines of, "I can still turn you over my knee and give you a good spanking." She then told me, "You know, It doesn't matter how often I hear that. It still sends a shiver up my spine."

My response to that, of course, was to turn her over my knee, pull her pants down, and give her a good spanking on her bare bottom......you know, just to show her that I meant what I said, and it wasn't all just talk.

But the point I'm trying to make is that the words we use while engaged in This Thing We Do have power. They evoke a response. The word, "spanking", all by itself can send someone's blood racing, set the butterflies in the stomach to fluttering, and send that little jolt of electricity (ZZZT!) along our spine and into our brain.

Maybe it's just a word, or a phrase--hairbrush; bare-bottom spanking; over my knee; straight-backed chair. To a spanker and a spankee, it immediately puts an image into our heads, and we start to react to that image. A well-placed turn-of-phrase can set a spankee squirming in anticipation. What are some of the words or phrases that get you going or push your buttons?

Being into spanking practically my entire life, and actively spanking deserving ladies for the last 20 years or so, I thought I knew exactly what all my hot button phrases were--which words or combination of words would send that electrical charge (ZZZT!) on it's way, and which would have no effect. I'm happy to say that I was wrong.

I was watching a video from Punished Brats called, "Email Attack". In it, naughty college girl Tina Tink (real name--Tina Tinkerbelle, but she shortened it for professional reasons--okay, I'm kidding) attempts to intercept an e-mail from her college to her dad, played by David Pierson. He catches her breaking into his e-mail account, and since this is a Punished Brats video, you can imagine what happens next:

David bares her bottom, puts her over his knee, and begins to spank away, and Tina, in a pleading tone of voice says, "Please don't spank me!"


For some reason, that hit me. It never had before....and, in fact, before going over David's knee, Tina had already said, "Don't spank me! No! I'm too old to spanked!" and I'd had no particular reaction to it. So maybe it was the words plus her exact tone of voice that next time--and maybe the bare bottom helped, who knows? Whatever the case, I suddenly had a new hot button phrase--one that I hadn't really ever had a reaction to before.

It's actually rather nice to know that, even after 20-odd years of spanking experience, it's still possible to run across something new, and have something surprise me. It gives me reason to look forward to the next 20 years of spanking! (And yes, I do intend to go on spanking for at least that long--so all of you naughty ladies out there--you've been warned!)

Radio Spanko Revisited

It was Monday. I was at work, doing what I usually do when I'm at work--listening to the radio. (And yes, I was working, as well.)
My radio was tuned, as always, to FM 107.1, and at that particular moment I was listening to the Lori and Julia show. (If you're asking yourself, "Who are they?", you can go back a couple of posts and find out. The two of them crack me up, and Lori is good for the occasional spanking reference, making me wonder if she's really one of us or not.)
Monday night at 5:30 p.m. they do a feature called, "Sex Monday". Lori reads and discusses interesting articles she's come across concerning--what else?--sex. Her co-host, Julia, and Donny, the other on-air personality on their show, throw in their observations and reactions.
Because Lori had made a reference to "spanking" the week before on the show (again, go back a few posts and check it out), I was keeping my ears open for any other possible references. Sure enough, Lori didn't disappoint and announced that, after the break, she would discuss the benefits of "erotic spanking".
Needless to say, that got my attention. I stayed tuned through the commercial break, and I even grabbed a piece of scrap paper and a pen so I could jot down some notes or keywords--I was already planning on making a post out of it!
I sat there, pen poised and at the ready, and she began talking about some college that had done a study of people engaged in S&M activity--and I suddenly realized that everything she was saying sounded familiar. And then I realized why--she was referencing the New Scientist article that I had written about on March 31st in a post called, Proof Positive.
Naturally, I put the pen down at this point since I'd already done a post on that. But as I got back to work, I started to wonder--how had she come across that article? And then it occurred to me--maybe she had read it here on my blog!
The thought made me chuckle, and I smiled to myself. I couldn't help but think, "Wouldn't that be something? I write about this radio host and her spanking references and speculate that she's a closet spanko, and all the time maybe she's lurking here and there's no way I would ever know!"
Maybe it's a small spanko world, after all.
How about it, Lori? Are you out there? I promise not to tell anyone.....

Radio Spanko

My favorite radio host, drive-time diva and closet spanko was at it again yesterday.

On the Lori and Julia show (3 p.m. to 6 p.m., Monday through Friday on FM 107.1 here in Minnesota), the topic was "bedroom secrets". Lori had a different co-host this day, as Julia was on vacation, and they were talking about ways to heat things up in the bedroom. Her co-host had a list he'd downloaded from somewhere, and it was the usual stuff we've heard about--touch more often; kiss more often; make a date for sex; yada yada yada.

After listening for a bit, Lori decided that the best way to heat things up was to take the Nike approach--"Just DO it!", she said. Skip the elaborate plans, don't make it complicated, just do it.

Her co-host read another item or two off his list, and then Lori chimed in with, "I'll tell you what: Spanking!" She added, "What is it I always say? 'Does spanking the junk warm up the trunk'? She then answered her own question with, "Yes, it does."

I don't know how often she follows her own advice, but I don't think I can call her a "closet spanko" anymore...
