I Wonder....

I can't help but ask the lady this question.......

.....Does she stick her head out of the window when she goes riding in the car?

Happy Father's Day

To all you fathers out there--Happy Father's Day, and what are you doing online reading a blog? Turn off the computer and go spend some time with the wife and kids. You'll find nothing more rewarding. Nothing enriches your life like family.

And to all of you father-figures (like me)--what are doing online reading a blog? You have something far more important to do--

Nothing is more rewarding or enriches a young lady's life more than to know that there is someone out there who cares about what she says and does--someone who keeps an eye on her behavior and who will adjust her attitude when necessary. Oh, she may say you're not her father, or that she's too old to be treated this way, but trust me--she'll thank you for it later on.

Betty and Veronica

A few posts back I made mention of the upcoming plans for the 600th issue of Archie Comics. In a six-issue story arc, starting with issue 600, they're going to take a little look into the future of the characters, and Archie is actually going to propose marriage! The question they've been teasing in order to build word of mouth and possible future sales is--who is Archie going to propose to? Betty? Or Veronica? Or perhaps someone else?

Whoever Archie proposes to, I pointed out that he'd better get his spanking arm in shape, because no matter which girl it is, he's going to have his hands full! Since then, I couldn't help but wonder--have our favorite blonde and brunette been spanked in the pages of Archie Comics?

Well, yes.....but as near as I can tell, not by Archie.

Let's start with Veronica.

Veronica Lodge is the dark-haired one. She's rich. She's spoiled. And yes, when you consider all her attempts to land Archie for herself, I think it's safe to say she's definitely a brat in need of some good old-fashioned discipline!

Fortunately for us, her father is an old-fashioned kind of guy.

Hiram Lodge made his money the old-fashioned way, to borrow a phrase from an old TV commercial--he earned it. (Of course, it's possible he made it the other old-fashioned way--he inherited it! Having not read all 500-plus past issues of the comic, I'm a little fuzzy on the details.) As you can see from the upcoming picture, Mr. Lodge doesn't hesitate to do what needs to be done to a misbehaving young lady--and in the middle of a party, no less:

The reactions of the party guests are a very nice mix--some appear shocked, while others are openly laughing at Veronica's comeuppance. I, for one, am in awe of Mr. Lodge's ability to put Veronica over his knees while sitting on absolutely nothing. That's a skill that could come in very handy for a spanker.

Mr. Lodge seems to be laying it on with a heavy hand. I'm sure she behaved herself for a good long time after that session--or until the next issue come out.

Betty is pretty much the opposite of Veronica--which was probably the whole idea to begin with, best shown by the contrast in hair color. Betty Cooper is the Girl Next Door, a Miss Goody-Two-Shoes. She's the sort of girl who would help Archie with his homework--or, more likely, she'd do his homework for him! Heck, she'd probably wash his car and mow his lawn if he asked. The only thing she has in common with Veronica, in fact, is her desire to have Archie Andrews as her boyfriend.

In fact, it appears that the only way Betty could misbehave badly enough to warrent a good bottom-warming is to become possessed by the spirit of a girl named Felicity. The spirit of Felicity's mother, however, does a little possessing of her own, and she knows exactly what her daughter needs:

Not only is Felicity driven out by this painful form of exorcism, but she's told she still has her father to deal with! I'm thinking Felicity is probably due for another spanking when her Dad gets ahold of her.

So, are these the only times our two naughty ladies have been spanked? Maybe, maybe not--they're the only two instances I could find, but that's far from being the same thing. I don't know who is going to wind up with Archie, but I have the same wish for both of these girls--namely, a husband who spanks!


If you want to be kept in the dark as to who Archie is going to propose to, stop reading now! Go to a different post, or close this blog down and go to another.

One of my faithful readers--Radha, who has her own blog, Radha Sutra, an excellent blog that you should all be reading--put up a comment on my previous post saying she didn't realize that this 600th issue and Archie's proposing to somebody was such a big deal--until she saw it on CNN! (Can you say, "slow news day"?)

Anyway, CNN reported that, in the middle of a jewelry store, Archie Andrews is going to propose to.........


Now, before we all pop the champagne corks and celebrate a victory for the rich and spoiled girls of the world, let me just point something out--the story of Archie proposing and getting married is set to play out over six issues of the magazine. In order to make the story last that long, I think it's safe to say that there are going to be some twists and turns along the way. Yes, Archie may propose to Veronica--that doesn't necessarily mean that's who he ends up marrying! A lot can happen before the story plays itself out. By the time the final issue comes out, it wouldn't surprise me to read that Archie has decided he's made a mistake, and that it's really Betty that he wants to marry. Or maybe he'll decide that he's still too young to get married, and that it might be a good idea to get a job first and explore life a little. Or maybe he and Jughead will finally come out of the closet and move to San Francisco together. Who knows?

I guess we'll just have to wait and see......

Paddling On The Miscellany River

This post is a potpourri of various topics--so let's get started:

Probably the most important note--Chross (you can find the link in the blog roll to the right of the screen, "Chross's Blog") was kind enough to name my June 4th post as one of his "Spankings Of The Week" this past Friday. It's under "Weekly spanking?" at the top of his list. My thanks to Chross for selecting it, as well as to whoever nominated it. It's the second time I've had a post of mine listed by Chross--hopefully it won't be the last!

Because of the selection by Chross, this blog saw a dramatic increase in the number of visitors. In fact, Saturday set an all-time record for this blog for hits in one day--2,729! That's a phenomanal total for my blog--I know what I usually get on a daily basis, and believe me, it usually isn't over 2,000......or over 1,000, for that matter. So, my thanks for eveyone who came by to check out the blog entry selected by Chross, and hopefully you checked out the rest of the blog, as well. Come back as often as you like.

And, because of the record number of hits brought on by the mention from Chross, my blog celebrated it's 250,000th visitor sometime on Friday. Yay! Cake and balloons for everybody....

Since I'm probably getting a lot of first-time visitors to the blog, let me take a moment to tell you what to expect if you keep coming back. The main thrust of the blog, of course, is about spanking between safe, sane consensual adults. The majority of posts will relate to spanking in some way, but I do reserve the right to post about whatever I want, so not every single post will involve spanking. I may, on occasion, talk about sports. I might post a photo and supply a (hopefully) humorous caption to it. I might put up a song parody. I may post a photo of an attractive woman with a very spankable bottom for no good reason whatsoever--like this one:

See? No reason for that picture to be there. It's my blog, and I wanted to post it, so I did. (Oh, the power!)

There is no set publishing schedule, so posts go up sporadically. The best I can tell you is to just keep checking back to find the new stuff.

That's about it. This blog is meant to be fun--I certainly have fun putting it together--and hopefully that comes across. Thanks to everyone who is following me, and thanks to everyone who drops by to visit and read. Feel free to leave a comment, too. All bloggers love comments.

If I think of anything else to add, I'll come back and edit the post to include it.
Until then.....enjoy!

An Upcoming Event

For a blog called, "Spanking Minnesota", I honestly have no idea how many Minnesotans actually stop by. I can think of--oh--maybe 4. Beyond that, it's anybody's guess.

So, do me a favor: if you read this and live in Minnesota, leave a comment to this post. Leave it anonymously if you like. It doesn't have to be a big, long paragraph with your life story (unless, of course, you want to!). Just a quick, "Hi, I'm in Minnesota" will suffice. It's just one of those things I've been thinking about.

If you DO live in Minnesota, the following may be of interest to you. Call it my PSA (Public Service Announcement) for the day:

Leather Pride is sneaking up on us! June 19-28, 2009 is a week-long celebration of Leather Pride (in parallel to Pride Week).

During this week, there are multiple events; including a parade, information booths, poetry readings, Floggapaloza and many, many more!

Black and Blue and Red all Over is June 21, 2009. This is a spanking workshop being offered to the community, and what better day to see it? Father's Day! Beginning at 1:00pm at Patrick's Cabaret in Mpls, come see 4 speakers put their own twist on traditional and not-so-traditional, spanking techniques. Learn about tools and toys, safety and have the opportunity to see some VERY unique role play.

An added bonus? Patrick's recently (very recently, like a WEEK ago) installed air conditioning!!

How much is all this excitement? If you have a Leather Pride Dog Tag??? $5 gets you in the door. No tag? Really? Then you pay $8 Buy tickets in advance, or at the door.

These people are too busy to attend, but if you live in Minnesota, I hope you consider going.

Graduation Day

It's June, and for many, that means Graduation from school has finally arrived. Over the next few weeks, the hallowed halls of many a University will hand out diplomas, sending grads out into the real world to face the reality of everyday life.

And I think it's safe to say that thousands of young woman, such as those pictured below, will quickly become acquainted with a very important fact of their new life--

--namely that, when they pull such shenanigans as this, they are NOT "too old" to be spanked!

Radio Spanko Strikes Again

My favorite, Talk Radio station was at it again. And this time, it wasn't my favorite drive-time diva and possible spanko, but a different show entirely!

There is a program on earlier in the day on FM 107.1 ("Living Life Out Loud") featuring a husband-and-wife announcing team. Their names are Ian and Marjorie. I didn't hear this particular episode, but the subject seemed to be household budgets, and they were on the phone with a lady talking about the subject. (I don't remember the exact dialogue, so this somewhat paraphrased).

Ian asked the caller, "So, in your household, do you get an allowance, or does your husband get an allowance?"

The caller--I don't remember her name, but let's call her "Carol"-- replied, "I'm the one who gets the allowance. Forty dollars a week--and when it's gone, it's gone."

Ian has quite a sense of humor, and apparently couldn't resist asking, "And if you go over your budget for the week--is it a spankin'?"

And Carol, not missing a beat, replied, "Well, if that were the case, I'd be over budget every week!"

(Sounds like my kind of woman!)

And in case you're wondering how I heard about this--the radio station took that snippet of conversation from the program and is using it as a promotional ad for the show--so, for now, it runs every few hours during commercial breaks!

Weeds--Season 4

The fourth season of the hit cable show, Weeds, goes on sale today, June 2nd.

I mention this because--as I'm sure most of you recall--the main character in the series, Nancy Botwin (played by Mary-Louise Parker) wound up being spanked in the back of a limo by the corrupt mayor of Tijuana, Esteban Reyes (played by Demian Bichir). It got reported on by practically all the spanking blogs out there, and many of them carried a video clip of the scene.

If for some reason you didn't get a chance to see it--now you can buy it and bring it home and watch it over and over.

If you need further incentive to buy the DVD, here's a photo of Mary-Louise Parker looking quite spankable--

--well, except for the snake. The snake has got to go.

Season 5 of Weeds begins on Showtime on June 8th. Will there be more spanking? Check out Valdor's excellent report on The Spank Statement (the link is in the blog roll to the right).
