A Firm Grip On Things

I have to say that, when it comes to kids, I take after the late W. C. Fields. When asked by a lady reporter, "Do you like children at all?", he replied, "Only if they're properly cooked."

However, I have to admit--THIS kid, I like.....

He's gonna grow up to be one of us, I'm tellin ya right now.....

Spanking Is In The Air(Waves)

I can't seem to turn around lately without finding a reference or a connection between spanking and TV.

Have you seen the promo ads for the upcoming season of "Samantha Who?", starring Christina Applegate? It's just a quick series of scenes, so I have absolutely no idea what's going on or what the plot of this particular episode is, but it starts with a shot of Samantha saying to someone off-camera, "Please, please spank me!" (Hey, she wouldn't have to ask me twice!) Do you suppose the writers of the show have been coming across spanking blogs like--oh, I don't know--THIS one and reading comments about her being high on a lot of "Celebrities I'd Like To Spank" lists?

This is followed by a shot of one lady getting a fairly decent whack on the backside from another lady. Again, no idea why.

I guess the only way to find out is to tune in and hope for the best. "Samantha Who?" starts it's new season Oct. 13th, 9:30 EST on ABC. Maybe we'll get lucky and see Christina the way we'd all like to see her:

And yes, that's Christina Applegate's bottom getting warmed at the very very end of the movie, The Sweetest Thing.

More TV and spanking talk--

Gene Simmon's Family Jewels seems to me to be one of the more scripted "reality shows". I don't mean that they're all memorizing lines of dialogue. I think the situations they find themselves in each episode, however, are all planned out well in advance. I watch and enjoy the show regardless.

One bit they always do is having two or more of the family sitting on a red couch talking toward the camera discussing some aspect of their lives or what's going on in that episode. In this past season, the mom (Shannon Tweed) is on the couch with 16-year old daughter, Sophie. Shannon says that when it came to discipline, Gene was--I'm paraphrasing here, but I think the word used was "absent"--and she added that "he'd wait for me to come home and spank you." At which point Sophie looks down and away from her mom, and gets an odd expression on her face. I get the feeling it was part embarassment, part "MOM, ix-nay on the anking-spay" sort of thing. And Shannon suddenly seems to realize it, too, because she backtracks and hesitantly says, 'I never spanked you, did I?". Sophie says, "No," very sweetly and Shannon, trying to make a joke out of it, fake-smacks Sophie's arm and in a harsh voice demands, "DID I?"

The little vignette ends with Sophie laughing it off with one of the most forced, faked laughs I've ever heard. Which leads me to believe that yes, there were indeed times when some spanking went on in the Simmons household, and that they had probably agreed privately among the family at some point that these incidents were never going to be mentioned on the show.

And--like everything else--I could be totally wrong about that. The curse of an active imagination.......

Finally, we come to a quote from "Grey's Anatomy" star Patrick Dempsey, pictured here with his wife, Jillian Fink:

Here's the pertinent quote as reported in a British Tabloid:

He said: “Romance is an atmosphere, a feeling, a mood, a place, it’s in the air. It is the little things - even a spanking every now and then!
“It is hard to define romance other than going with the clich├ęs of a lake, a boat, a picnic basket and a sunset.”
But the sexy actor also treats his wife to more conventional romantic treats, and loves whisking her off for a weekend in France and Italy.
“Certain cities are so exciting because they promote being physical in public,” he revealed. “Paris, New York and Rome are fun to visit. But then there is the Italian countryside, Tuscany and Florence, where everyone is romancing.”

Hmmmm....a little spanking? Being "physical in public"? I think a lot of women who liked Patrick Dempsey now like him a whole lot more!

Hey, does this mean that on "Grey's Anatomy" they're going to change his nickname from "McDreamy" to "McSpanky"?

I can only hope.....

And Now For Something Completely Different....

My thanks to everyone who visited Spanking Minnesota this past Sunday. You set a record for the largest number of visitors I've had in a single day--nearly 800! (793, to be precise.) And on Tuesday, you almost matched that number as 792 of you dropped in. And all just to find out about Pixie's Cause For Paws fundraiser and her rather unique idea on how to get donations.

Oh, yeah....that, and a picture of a puppy.

Who would have guessed that one picture of a little dog could attract that many people here? But hey, if it brings in the traffic, I'm all for it! In fact, from now on, that's all you're going to find here. I'm going to change the name of the blog to something like Duckies And Bunnies and post nothing but cute animal pictures, like this one......

Aw, who am I kidding? Ok, back to normal.....

(Just a reminder--you still have until September 28th to go to Spanking Pixie, read all about her fund-raising and panty-lowering proposal, and make a donation to a very worthwhile cause. I know that times are tight, but you don't have to make a huge donation--even just a dollar or two is a big help .)

Pixie's Cause For Paws

It always amuses me when I think about the number of times I've directed people AWAY from my own blog. You come here looking for a little quick dip into whatever I may have to say, and I wind up telling you, "Go here and read this." Maybe it's a new blog I've read--whenever I add to the blog roll, I always urge you to go, take a look, leave a comment--maybe it's something else I found that I thought was worthwhile. I guess my parents brought me up well--I like to share.

Today I urge you to go to Amber Pixie Well's Spanking Journal--the link is under Blogs I Read Daily, "Spanking Pixie". Look for her September 18th post, "Pixie's Cause For Paws."

Among her many interests, Pixie is an animal lover. (I'm a dog person, myself.) She volunteers at an animal shelter, and they're holding a fundraiser. You can go and read her post on this, but here is what she is proposing: For each $1 that you, the readers of her blog, donate, she will take 1 hard bare-bottomed spank, and the whole thing will be recorded and posted for us to view on her blog!

She has a link within her post that you can click on and it will take you to Pay Pal if you wish to donate that way, and she also includes a snail-mail address for those who don't want to go the Pay Pal route. if you love animals, please look at her post and look into your hearts and then look into your wallets and see if there isn't a dollar or two that you can spare. Our four-legged friends need our help. Donations need to be in by September 28th.

If, for whatever reason, you don't wish to contribute to Pixie's cause, let me urge you to make a donation to an animal shelter or animal rescue or Humane Society in your local area. All of these places do great work, and they certainly can use all the help they can get.
Thanks for your time and your consideration.

New Countries, New Blogs, And Things I Learned From Mr. Whipple

If you've been reading this blog on a regular (or even irregular) basis, you may remember that back in April I started keeping track of all the different countries that my readers came from. It's been some time since I updated that list, but new countries show up in my stats page all the time, and I've finally added them to the list. So a big hello to all the readers from Bosnia and Herzegovina, the Bahamas, Zimbabwe, Mongolia, Yemen, Indonesia, Guam, and Trinidad and Tobago! I hope you liked what you saw here, and please come back often.

I like to think that many of the readers from all of the countries I've kept track of are cute, spankable ladies who are planning a trip to Minnesota to visit the Mall of America and might want a spanking from Dr. Ken during their stay. I also know that the odds of that being true are probably less than 1%. Too bad--a lot of beautiful women in those countries, and I'm sure many of them need to have their bottoms warmed. (sigh)

Speaking of updates, there are two new additions to the Blog Roll which you might want to check out.

First up is a spanking blog called, appropriately enough, My Spanking Blog. It is dedicated to everything spanking, and I do mean everything. You'll find pictures, you'll find video clips, and the owner will even point the way to a good spanking story if he comes across one. There's a little something for every spanko taste, so go there and browse around.

The second blog comes from Audrey Knight and Abigail Whittaker. They recently started a spanking pay site called Spank That Brat (http://www.spankthatbrat.com/ ). The site has some free stuff you can check out, and there's a very good review and interview by Dave on The Cherry Red Report about the site, which makes for some good reading. There's also a companion piece to the site, Spank That Brat Blog with posts from both ladies telling of their Domestic Discipline arrangement. Read and enjoy the blog, and it just may convince you to give their pay site a try. Here's a sample picture:

And finally, I'll close this post with a simple cautionary tale. I was talking to a lady down at work the other day. I've worked in the same unit with her for 20-some years. We don't date or anything like that, we're just good friends who enjoy spending time talking to each other.
Her allergies had been acting up lately, and her allergy attacks are bad! We're talking have-trouble-breathing bad. She takes medication for it, but the medication really knocks her out. She was complaining that all she can do lately is sit on the sofa, sneeze, and gain weight.
SHE: I have gotten SO fat lately!
ME: Oh, please....you're not fat. I'M fat.
SHE: Yeah? Well, if I'm not fat, what am I?
ME: Squeezably soft.
Moral of this story: Never--no matter how good your intentions--compare a lady to a roll of toilet tissue......

It's My Birthday, And I'll Post What I Want

That's right--September 15th is my birthday, a date I share with Prince Harry, Dan Marino, Tommy Lee Jones, Oliver Stone, Merlin Olsen, Jackie Cooper, Fay Wray, Roy Acuff, Agatha Christie, Robert Benchley, and our 27th president, William H. Taft.

And since it's my birthday, I think it's only fair that I post anything I want--which means I think I'll post another photo of Jennifer Aniston in a bikini--

There have been a LOT of photos of Jen in a bikini this year. And no, I'm not complaining. In fact, there have been so many that it has vaulted Jennifer Aniston to the top of my Celebrities I'd Love To Spank list. Helen Hunt was there for a while, Halle Berry had it most recently but now moves down to number two. Jen tops the list.

It must be a tough to be Jennifer Aniston--her schedule seems to be wake up, breakfast, lay out by the pool for 2 hours, exercise, have lunch, lay out by the pool for two hours, then get ready for a dinner date with some good-looking musician or movie star. Poor girl. The last rumor I heard had her being seen with Gerard Butler. And I know a lot of ladies who have Gerard on their own Celebrities I'd Love To Be Spanked By list.

And now, for no reason other than it's my birthday--this photo--

Do I really need to tell you what I like about this photo?

And finally, I'm going to re-visit the Jessica Simpson photo I ran a couple of posts ago. When I first went looking for a photo of her wardrobe malfunction from her appearance on "Good Morning America" I could only find one photo--a high resolution photo that I used in the post. My computer, though, is about 10 years old and doesn't handle high-res photos that well sometimes. And on my computer, the Jessica Simpson photo just didn't look quite right. (Perhaps it looks okay to you--I don't know.) But now that a few more days have passed, there are other copies of the photo out there, and I found one that looks good on my computer (along with a close-up).

Thanks to everyone who drops by my blog. That's the best birthday present I could ask for. And go out and do something special for yourselves on my birthday. We may as well all celebrate!

It's In The By-Laws....

ANNOUNCER: "....and finally, just a reminder, any contestant NOT holding her number properly will get a sound spanking from each and every one of our judges....."

Hey, Jessica Simpson! Forget Something?

Jessica: "Dang, it's kind of breezy out here. I wonder--did I forget to put on my, um.....my.....oh, you know, those things that you wear under clothes, those.......ohhhh, those things you wear under......"

"Oh, well, no big whoop. Just as long as my boyfriend Tony doesn't find out. He'd spank my bottom from here to Tuesday. Thank goodness there's no way he can learn about this...."

Radio Spanko

A couple of posts back I told you about The Cooper Lawrence Show, a radio show I listen to while I'm at work. Naturally, there's a show on air before Cooper's show, and I listen to that one, as well. From 3 p.m. to 6 p.m., Fm 107.1 here in Minnesota is host to the Lori and Julia Show. Lori and Julia are two local radio personalities. They're good friends and sisters-in-law, as well.
And I think one of them may just be a little bit of a spanko.

The seed was planted some time ago--far enough in the past that I don't even remember when it was, or exactly what was being talked about. Lori was telling a story on herself about some mischief she'd gotten into. I was only half-listening, so I don't know the exact context of what she'd been up to or the trouble she got herself into with her husband, but my ears perked up when Lori mentioned her husband and added that she "let" him punish her, and that he seemed to enjoy it.

Now, she never specified what form the "punishment" took, but you know exactly where my mind went. I filed the notion away in my memory--just a little something to keep in mind.

I was listening to the show last week, and the topic of the misprinted "Duck Stamp" came up. Perhaps you've heard about this gaffe. Duck stamps are required in the United States to hunt migratory waterfowl, or ducks in layman's terms. They can be ordered over the phone. EXCEPT--the carrier card for the duck stamps had two digits transposed, effectively changing the number from 1-800-STAMP24 to 1-800-TRAMP24. In total, about 3.5 million cards were printed with the wrong number. And the wrong number connected all callers to a phone sex service.

Because of the number of cards involved, it was decided that it would cost too much to reprint the stamps, and so they're just going to go ahead and use the stamps as printed while making people aware of the phone number mistake.

Lori and Julia were talking about this on their show. Julia asked Donny (their technical producer, I think) if he had ever called such a number. He said no. Julia then said that the girls at these numbers must work from scripts, like, "Redhead" or "Blonde with big boobs."

At which point Lori chimed in, pretending to be one of the operators, and with a breathy voice she intoned, "'I'm a bad, bad girl'--and then I'd like some spanking sounds." While the others laughed, she continued in the background, "Whack! 'Oh, yes. Again'. Whack"

That was the extent of it, but now I'm really starting to wonder about that lady. And I'll certainly be listening for any other possible references!

A Good Spanking

It all started on August 7th over on Devlin O'Neill's Weblog with a post from Gwen with the title, Is It Friday "Yet"?......a phrase I've been known to mutter just about every day of the work week.....and yes, that includes Fridays.

Somehow, in the comments section, the discussion rather quickly turned to doing jell-o shots (along with a recipe for them) with everyone chiming in on the subject. Then I opened my big yap (as I've been known to do) with a prize-winning notion.

We all know drinks can have crazy names, I said. Like Sex On The Beach, for example. What we really needed was a drink called, A Good Spanking. Not being a bartender (or even much of a drinker) myself, I noted that I had no idea what such a drink would be comprised of--only that I liked the idea of women going up to the bartender--undoubtedly squeezing themselves into a space next to a good-looking guy--and saying, "I'd like A Good Spanking, please."

Gwen really liked the idea. She saw that it could be a great icebreaker--stand next to a good-looking someone and order that drink, and just imagine the ensuing possible conversation. It could also serve as a little coded message. A lady placing such an order is letting you know that she's not just thirsty--if you're sharp enough to pick up on it.

All we needed was a Spanko bartender to come up with the concoction--at which point CJ, a regular over at Devlin's blog, just happened to mention that she'd been to bartending school. So she experimented long and hard--heaven knows how many tries it took before she came up with the finished product. But come up with it, she did......and here, with a little tweaking from Dev, is the recipe for A Good Spanking:

- 1.5 oz. Bacardi Coconut Rum- 1.5 oz. Bacardi O Rum- Pineapple Juice- Orange Juice- Mix this first over cracked ice in a tall glass to a little over 3/4 full…
- Then add .5 to .75 oz. Sloe Gin on top by slowly pouring atop an inverted spoon.- Garnish with a cherry halved on top of an orange slice

Now we just need bartenders the world over to become familiar with the drink. So everybody, gather up your courage! Copy the above recipe on to a 3 X 5 notecard, or print out several copies and take it with you to the nearest watering hole and ask the bartender for A Good Spanking. And when he says, "Huh?" or "I don't know that one", hand him the recipe. With luck, he'll keep it on file, and other people will learn about it and it will become popular, and before long we'll have our very own handy conversation starter.

To read the full account, go to Devlin O'Neill's Weblog and look up the August 7th post. And then check out the August 29th post, "A Good Spanking! I'll Drink To That!" which is when the finished recipe was introduced

It's September, the kids are back in school and out of the house. This just might be a good time to have the neighbors over for a cocktail. Whatever you do, I hope you all enjoy A Good Spanking!
