The 5:30 Pre-emptive Spanking



I am not a morning person by any stretch of the definition. AND the only 5:30 of the clock that I generally recognize has a PM after it. As in the evening, not the morning. I can get up and start the day at 5:30 if I absolutely had no other choice, but don't expect to hold a conversation with me as my brain hasn't woken up enough to transmit the words to my mouth.

So to be given the news that we were going to start out the day on Saturday with a pre-emptive spanking at 5:30 am left me a bit rankled. Who spanks at that time in the morning? I'd rather be sleeping until the alarm goes off.

Can I sleep through it since its not going to be as hard or long as a punishment?

We were due to drive 2 hours out of the city to attend the baptism of my new nephew that was going to start at 9 am., which meant we had to be on the highway at 7 am, in the car by 6:45 am, after having breakfast, showering and getting dressed up. Which meant the spanking needed to be on the schedule for 5:30 am.

I had been looking forward to this event for several weeks, but a major problem arose when I was given some information about one of my sisters-in-law. I was deeply offended and hurt, which were masked under a blanket of anger. It took several days of fretting to be able to release the anger and try to approach the situation at all.

My next reaction was to want to try and work out the problem, to have a conversation and talk about what had happened and was happening. To approach the problem in a more positive way. After all, marriage into my family made us sisters. Talk about the problem... that's what adults do in a situation like this... especially one that involves family. Sounds reasonable, right? Yeah, well... this sister-in-law is not comfortable with discussing anything unpleasant and would walk away and then pretend there isn't a problem. So no discussion was going to take place.

That left me with the prospect of a family event where our relationship was strained and uncomfortable. Now I was dreading the day. I had debated about not attending but ultimately decided that my nephew deserved to have as many family members present for his special day and it would hurt my brother if I skipped out. So I went but was dreading it now.

Which brought me to a spanking to remind me that however I chose to act or react that day, that I needed to make some good choices and remember that I would face more of the same if I gave into my temper and reacted without thinking. Those are good reasons for a pre-emotive spanking, right?

It wasn't the hardest spanking I've ever received, nor was it the lightest. It was just enough that the sting and burn was felt for the 2 hour drive and later into the day. It turned out that my sister-in-law and I have yet to talk about the problem (her choice not mine) but with the support of the rest of the family will hopefully reach an understanding.

BUT... 5:30 a.m for a spanking! Ungodly hour for such an event! Geez!

Watching You

We had been in the car for an hour, driving on secondary roads through countryside that was starting to wake up to springtime. You were lost in thought; your right hand holding the steering wheel, your left one tapping a beat on your thigh to the music on the radio.

I turned slightly so that I could watch you. Your hair is thinning a bit and you have bits of grey... when did that start? You have nice ears... not too big or small. Your ears are particularly cute when they turn red if you're embarrassed. I've teased you about it many times.

I let my eyes roam over each of your features, stopping for a moment of appreciation. You have broad shoulders that willingly carry so much. Sometimes I wonder if the load is too much for you at times. Do my words or behaviour make that load too heavy? Is that why you checked out emotionally when you did?

The music on the radio and the gorgeous weather outside the car led to a peaceful feeling inside the car. I've worked hard and so have you at healing the cracks between us and we've reached an accord of sorts. We're each commited to the future and there are some big plans in the future, but have we determined that we're happy? I wonder if you think about this as well.

I look back at you and finish my perusal. I follow the line of one of your arms down to your hand. One of the things that attracted you to me in those early days were your hands. I love a man's hands. Yours are strong but gentle. You have calluses on your palms and always seem to sporting some minor injury...a cut, a bruise. Soft, wimpy hands you definitely don't have. They can be soft and gentle in a caress and holy hell, can they be hard if they are spanking bottom flesh.

Further down, my eyes stop at your knees. You have nice knees and they sure look sexy in a kilt. That thought makes me smile and chuckle. The sound catches your attention and you glance over. You smile, take my hand and kiss my knuckles. We sit like that, holding hands and be silent, letting the music roll around us and the sunlight warm the car.

In the past, such a situation would make me feel happy and content. After thinking about your physical self, I put my head back on the seat and wondered about your thoughts, about your heart and dreams. Are you happy right now or are you going through the motions of existing? You used to talk to me about these things, but to be fair, I used to ask. When did we stop?

What is happiness anyway? We were happy...then we weren't. Are we again? How is happiness reclaimed? 

I'm afraid to ask the questions. Especially since I don't know the answers For myself.

What Resonates With You?

Of the photos/sayings attached, which resonates the most with you?

Nude picture



It was to be a special surprise. Could I do it? Have a nude photo taken of myself for you? Show all my imperfections?

Yes, I could do it.

I will do it.

I spent a lot of time planning the details, to make sure it was something you would like, something you would treasure. Keep it somewhere private, only to be taken out when you were alone.

What would I wear? Where would I take the photo? How would I pose? My hair, make up... was I shaven? A lot of details...
 
I was aiming for a combination of sex slave meets gymnast with a touch of pole dancer... and a little bit of happy homemaker thrown in.
 
The last detail was the photographer... someone I knew or a complete stranger? What if there were copies that found their way onto the internet, without my knowledge? I would be so embarrassed.

In the end, I decided for the personal touch. You like that touch, right?

Today was the day. I did it. I took a nude picture. But I have a confession. I'm nervous about how its going to be received. Can I show it to you? Will you tell me what you think about it? How did I do? How do I look?

Belt Bottom Busted Brouhaha


didn't realize that he was standing behind my chair until his arm reached over my shoulder to take the cell phone from my hand. “Hmm...Busted.” Crap. 

He swung my chair around to face him as he sat down in front of me. He didn’t say anything as he scrolled through the phone. His eyes rose to meet mine. “Let’s hear it.”

I dropped my head back against the back of the chair and closed my eyes. “I was just checking. It was only a moment. I wasn’t going to do anything else.”

“We’ve talked about this a few times. You know how I feel about it. It’s toxic and it doesn’t do you any good to be involved. In fact, it hurts you, doesn’t it? That crazy woman and her situation keeps you awake at night. It’s a cycle, the more you don’t sleep, the more you start a downward spiral into negative thoughts and self talk. While she's not responsible for you not sleeping or the thoughts, she's one of the factors that starts that cycle. ”

Everything he just said was the truth. I could only sit quietly, with my eyes closed. It was always hard to meet his eyes during uncomfortable lecture moments, when I knew I had let him down.

“But I haven’t had anything to do with her at all. I was just checking Twitter and...”

“Don’t you give me ‘you were only’ or ‘but’... those are excuses and that isn’t being responsible for what you were just doing a moment ago.” Those words were followed by a hard slap to the side of my thigh.

He wasn't done with the lecture. “We sat together while you deleted her from your Twitter account and your blogroll. We talked about the situation and how dangerous she could be and you were part of the decision that you were not to be around her... even to look at what she was up to or talking about.  You agreed to it. And now I find you doing just the opposite.” I could tell that he was glaring now, without even looking at him. 

There was a few moments of silence between us. “You disobeyed me. I was very clear about what the consequence would be if that happened. Right?”

“Yes, sir.” (One of two new rules, different story) “I am sorry. Truly sorry.”

“Thank you for the apology, I know you are.” He reached for one of my hands and kissed my palm. “Let’s take care of this then... I want you to go and get ready for bed while I turn off the lights and lock up. No dawdling, I know how long it takes you to get ready. Pillows on the end of the bed and there is a corner waiting for you. Stand in it and think about this while you wait for me to come in. Understand?”

“Yes, sir.” I stood up and started to walk to the bedroom. I stopped when he followed me to the door and touched my arm. “I love you.” He wrapped his arms around me and we stood like that for a few minutes, just holding each other. "We're going to have a long discussion about this, but we'll get through it."

I went to start getting ready for bed. A spanking wasn't something I wanted right then. It had been awhile since I had a punishment spanking and my bottom was giving me the message that this wasn’t going to be pleasant. Crap.

I put the pillows on the end of the bed and went to stand in the corner. I struggle with standing in the corner and taking it seriously, but this time, I did just that... took it seriously. What followed was a long discussion between his hand and belt and my bottom. It took longer than he likely planned because there was some moving around, a hand shot back to protect red flesh (both of which led to the discussion starting over from the beginning) and a lot of howling.

In the end my bottom understood and agreed with everything his belt had to say. To be honest, to get his belt to stop striking, my bottom would have agreed to anything. However, one message was definite; my bottom felt a lot of remorse, regret and a renewed commitment to have me obey the belt’s owner.

While there was an intense burn, there was a clean slate and a lot of enthusiastic soothing. I always wish afterwards that the consequences and lesson reinforcement wasn't so enthusiastic.

Oh well... :-D

Real Neat Blog Award X2



We'll see how long it takes to write this post with a broken wrist. The doctor said to keep my fingers moving so I'm depending on those to do the job. Please forgive any typing mistakes.

Thank you to Ami and Dana for your nominations. I'll try not to grimace when thinking of the now 14 questions I need to answer

First, the rules:

1. Put the Award Logo in your post
2. Answer 7 questions asked by the person who nominated you
3.Nominate any number of bloggers you like, linking to their blogs
4. Let them know you nominated them.

Now to Ami's questions:


1  What is your favourite season of the year, and why?

 I like something about each of the four seasons, but I enjoy autumn the most. The air is crisp, after the heat and humidity of the summer, the trees are turning into beautiful colours, pumpkins are available which means pumpkin pie, Thanksgiving occurs in October (in Canada) and I love the holiday and there have been some special moments in my life that have occurred in the autumn months as well.

2  Your house is on fire. All humans and pets are safely outside. What is the single item you have saved from destruction?

My red boots.

3  If money were no object and you could have any car you wanted, what would you buy?

I have a long bucket list for travelling and have been fortunate to have checked off a few locations already and have a few coming up. I want to spend my 50th birthday in a hot air balloon in Africa (likely Tanzania) to see the wild migrations. I would love to go to Israel and Jordan and trace the roots of my faith. I'd love to see Machu Pichu in Peru. Too many to list...

I was advised by Ami that I didn't answer this question properly and came back to read it and oops, I didn't. I was thinking travel and she asked about cars...lol. Sorry about that.

My honest answer is that I don't really care about cars. I usually drive an older car that J has rebuilt. I drive a 2001 car right now and love it. It's in amazing shape, has less than 60,000 miles (100,000 kms). Not a very interesting answer, but its about cars this time! 


4  Does your hair colour go with your character? Or would you secretly desire a change?

My hair colour used to be redder, which I would say yes, it matches my character and temper. As I've gotten older, its changed gradually to more of an auburn. One day, I might make a change.
5  What are your three favourite songs?

I don't have specific favourites. I listen to a variety of music, depending on the mood. Classic rock, blues, gospel, celtic, canadiana... anything but that techno house dance crap that gives me a headache.

6  If you were a bird, which would you be and why?

A bird? What kind of bird would I be? How about a magpie? They are beautiful... they hop on the ground, but they are not all they appear to be. When they open their beaks and make a sound, its "unusual".

7  Do you have a collection of anything, and what is it?
Don't laugh. I have a collection of "round things". They sit in a bowl on the coffee table and can be anything that is round. Boring, right?

Dana's questions:

1.  How long have you been blogging?

August 2015 will be my 5th year. I think. 5 years. Or maybe 4 years. That's bad, isn't it? I'll have to look it up before August.

2.  Would you consider a relationship without TTWD?


No. Part of the reason is that I don't know what one would look like without DD/TTWD. But the main reason is that I thrive when TTWD is present, I am safe, cared about, loved, encouraged to be the best person I can be... I am able to love, respect and follow, encourage, support him. It's scary to think of what my life would be without the structure, accountability, closeness of DD.

3.  What do you like best about a DD relationship? What do you like least?


My answer to the benefits is part of the answer above. Although I would add that feeling free to not be totally responsible for all decisions is very freeing. I could do without the punishments, particularly the spankings. However, my brain and heart recognize the benefits of them, my bottom strongly disagrees. My bottom doesn't get a vote though.

4.  Does anyone in your life know about your DD relationship status?


Yes, both family and friends.

5.  What is your funniest DD experience?


The Penis Prank... it has become notorious (which does cause some blushing) in our group. It's not on my blog anymore (deleted last year with the old blog), but I might retell the story again.

6.  What is your partners most creative punishment?


Creative from mine or his perspective? He thinks several of his are creative. The one that comes to mind and was very effective was what he called a Budget Spanking. There was a time, several years ago, where I was having problems keeping to a monthly budget. I also discovered eBay and went a little crazy. I spent a LOT of money on eBay and then managed somehow to "forget" about it and not confess. That was my story at the time. The packages starting arriving and the post office had to use their truck to make repeated trips to the house. Eventually I was found out and had to face punishment. The spankings that happened were budgeted onto one side per spanking. Right bum cheek/thigh was spanked. Next night, left bum cheek/thigh was spanked. Pattern was repeated a few times. "We have a budget and while you haven't followed it, I am going to and budget your spankings one side at a time." Since then I've been banned from eBay without specific permission and supervision and haven't been on the site against his wishes. I've also done much better since then with budgets.

7.  Would you like to meet any blog friends?


I have met several and have plans coming up to meet several more. I'd highly recommend it to anyone that feels close to someone else in blogland.

~~~~~~~~~~

My nominated bloggers are Clara, Maren Smith, Renee Rose and Cara Bristol. (Maren, Renee and Cara are three of my absolute favourite DD authors and I've read everything they have so far... and am waiting somewhat (im)patiently for something new!) Emails have been sent to notify of the nomination. My questions are as follows:

1. What blog post or story (for the three authors) are you most proud of?
2. What advice would you give your younger self when you were 18 years old?
3. What food item would be "comfort food" for you?
4. What are you wearing right now as you read and answer this question?
5. If I came to your house and went snooping and looked in your beside table drawer, what would I find?
6. Do you have a favourite TV show and/or movie? What is it?
7. Do you have a current goal you are working towards? What is it? If not, where would you like to see yourself 5 years from now in April 2020?

An End to Female Dryness - The Spanking

I saw this title on an Outlander blog (minus the spanking) that I follow and if you're a Diana Gabaldon and Outlander fan, you know exactly how true it will be when, in one week, its back! In Canada, the official return is a day later on April 5th.

Incidentally, this new episode is one where Claire is spanked (with Jamie's sword belt) for disobedience that put her life and those of his men in grave danger.


If you want to see a promo for the actual episode, here you go...




To date, the series is following the books very closely so we'll see how much of the spanking will be seen on TV.

Finally, an end to a condition coined as Droughtlander, suffered as a drought of Outlander fans... and of course... an end to female dryness!

International Women's Day 2015


March 8th is the International Women's Day. If you don't know about it, just ask Mr. Google.  Sadly, it is not uncommon for women to judge themselves harshly and unfairly. Instead of revelling in our inner beauty, we as a gender, tend to judge ourselves harshly and sometimes find ourselves wanting. 

At times we do not feel as proud or as confident as we should be. We compare ourselves to others, try to find negative traits in them to feel better about ourselves, and we complain about what we don't have. These attitudes and behaviours not only take up too much of our valuable energy, but make us feel resentful and irritable. After all, why should we go about our days feeling this way, when instead we can feel excited to wake up in the morning and be one of those people contributing to other people's happiness? If you're in need of an emotional lift, you can start right now with these encouraging pick-me-ups!

This 5 step list appeared on a blog I follow and thought it might resonate with someone who perhaps needs to find their best self. 


Compliment Someone

We all have those days when we’re feeling a bit off, a little blue, or just plain discouraged. The next time you find yourself trying to positively affirm your way out of a bad mood the best you can do that is to just pay someone a compliment. Tell them they did a great job on a project; that they look radiant; that you appreciate the way they contribute to a team, and so forth. A compliment will not only make that person’s day, but it will make you feel happier knowing that you positively contributed to their good spirits.






Practice Smiling

Did you know that smiling, forced or not, can have a positive effect on your mood, decrease stress levels, and make everyone around you feel better? If you go about your day and your encounters with a smile on your face, not only are you more approachable, but smiles are actually contagious, which as a result, uplifts those around you while boosting your own happy endorphins.









Let Go of Anger

Whether you’re upset at someone for something they did, cannot find any room to forgive them, or are disappointed in yourself for not achieving specific goals, let it go. Let it go because you’re a good person who wants to enjoy life unaccompanied by negative energy. Replace your resentment with compassion by facing, feeling, dealing with, and healing from it. Forgiveness offers you the freedom that you need to embrace.




Complain Less

Learn to enjoy life by not focusing on what is bad, wrong, or why you or someone else didn’t do something. Not only does this pessimistic attitude make us less pleasant to be around, but it fosters negative energy to our surroundings, impacting others. You cannot progress by complaining, you can only do so by implementing ideas. If you need to express issues, write about them first, read it out and decide how you can express your discontent content calmly and be ready with a proposed solution instead.

 

Do the Unexpected

Does that mean making your own pizza instead of buying one? Booking that Europe trip you’ve been longing for since a decade ago? Whatever it is, you do not want to look back at your prior years with the thought of “What if I did it?” or “Should I have?” Any little act of spontaneity will boost your confidence, as you feel empowered knowing that you can proudly challenge yourself make these decisions and live them wholeheartedly.









Happiness. Such a simple word. I didn't want to post a "poor me" post, so thought this would have a more positive message. For me, as well. I can't find what I need to be happy again. It's not something someone else can do or provide, it has to come from within me and its missing. Desperately missing. I'm going to try these five steps and see if it has an impact. Maybe it will change something.

A Dreamland Spanking

Something in his movements beside me caused me to wake in the middle of the night. It was obvious that he was dreaming and was getting agitated. I reached over and patted his chest so he would wake up gently.

Even so, he woke rather suddenly and it was a minute before the remanents of the dream receded and his eyes cleared. I cupped his cheek and murmured, "Shhh, it was a dream. You're okay."

He was silent for a moment as we both waited for his breathing to slow down.

"Do you want to tell me what you were dreaming about?"

"The eyes are the winows to the soul and that is true for you. Also true, is that your bottom is the seat of your learning."

I was thinking to myself that was an odd thing to be having an upsetting dream about but still sought to placate him and leaned in and kissed him. "Okay. Sure." If it wasn't the darkest hour of the night, I might have rolled my eyes.

"Woman, I am the teacher. I'm the only teacher to your seat of learning. Even if I'm not with you, it's only me." He was practically growling.

"I understand. It's only you."

He nodded, reached a hand behind me and roughly pulled me to him... and kissed me.

Then went back to sleep. Or could all of that have been while he wasn't fully awake?

I lay back down, fixed the duvet over us and stated at him in the dark. I wasn't sure if I was pleased or insulted. He was dreaming about me, but in a spanking situation and not something hot and juicy like a bout of sex! Our relationship is very fragile, especially since last September.

I didn't think about it anymore and fell asleep. My dream involved a man and a woman who were learning about each other and trying to trust again.

Perhaps there was a similar message in his dream.

My Tribute to Cat

 
Have you had the pleasure of meeting Cat of GigglesGrinsAndReflections? She and I have been friends since the beginning of our time in blogland. Our friendship pre-dates the creation of each of our blogs.
 
She is a very caring woman, who always thinks of others (this is proven time and again by her works to create tributes to bloggers going through challenging times) and is quite funny. She is very straightforward... you always know where you stand with her. I love and respect that quality in her and am honoured that I can call her my friend. She has stuck with me through some very difficult times... when it felt like no one else would. 
 
I've also had some uncomfortable conversations with her at times. She calls it like it is and doesn't let you call it anything else or hide from the truth. With her help, I faced some difficult things about my behaviour in the Christina Scandal of Lies and also in the traumatic events that followed in September.
 
I'm not telling her ahead of time about this tribute so shhhhh... maybe it will come as a surprise! :D
 
I just want the world to know that I value her as a friend, appreciate her as a friend, and love her as a friend.
 
 
P.S I've changed my colours - is everything easy to read?

Baby, It's Cold Outside



I'm a Canadian and as such, I live in Canada. I love my country and am very patriotic and proud of my citizenship... but I'm tired of being cold. Yes, Canada is a country with a long and cold winter, but as we're on the third week now with temperatures dipping around minus 40 Celsius, I'm bloody tired of the cold weather, the wind chill factor...


 
It's too cold to enjoy skiing, snowmobiling, hiking in a Winter Wonderland. It's so cold that when you take a deep breath in through your nose, your nostrils stick together!

 
I'm very willing to have the cold weather go to whomever wants it. Seriously.

 
I did see a group of boys with their pants pulled up to... wait for it... their waists!! For a change, I didn't have to look at the waistbands of their underwear or a crack of something more personal... while I was dressed up in snow pants, two pairs of socks, winterized boots with tread, a long sub-zero rated coat, a scarf, hat, mittens (with hand-warmer packs).  And that was just to get out of my car and run into the office.

 
It's not my nuts that are frozen, but rather something a little more north of the waistline!
 

 
Someone was having fun in the snow! Did I mention that we currently have 3 feet of snow? The snowploughs have piled it higher than I stand... tested it one day and stood next to a pile of snow. It was a good foot taller than me.

 
Some people are just stupid! I fail to understand the rationale behind cruelty.
 
Stay warm, stay dry and be thankful for a place to shelter you from whatever weather you face.  Here, its bloody cold! The wind is howling outside...
 
The forecast for tomorrow is the same.

Spoken in Pictures

A picture speaks like a thousand words. Some of these are pictures with words, some are words that make a picture.  Either way, this is what I have to say today.


 
I'm trying to learn the lesson of crossing the monkey bars. It's a work in progress.

 
A year ago, I would have said we were so strong and could endure anything. I never expected this amount of pain. But if pain exists to create change, then things are going to change.

 
Amen!

 
Even when it feels like the most impossible task in the world. You have to keep going. Things will improve.


 
Awwww... right?

 
Children intuitively appreciate the freedom of dancing in the rain. Somehow as adults, we forget.


 
True for scars that are seen and not seen by the world.

Every time I come across this quote from Betty White, I laugh. It's so true!

A Community Made Just for Spanking - Corbin's Bend, USA


Corbin's Bend, Colorado, U.S.A ... have you been to the little community tucked into the mountains? It's designed as a housing cooperative for men and women who choose to incorporate spanking into their relationships. BDSM, DD, erotic or a combination of any choice are accepted (although the main characters of the books all practice DD). 

Each individual is given a mentor to help them in any way they need. Someone to talk to when they need to brainstorm a solution to a problem, to help them understand the feelings they are experiencing with the lifestyle.

Without judgment.  Without fear of being "outted". I find that concept for a book series to be fascinating.

Can you imagine? What if such a place were real? Who knows... maybe it is.

A group of authors, some quite famous in the erotic genre, have gathered together in a project to tell the tales of the men and women in this unique community. I'm addicted to this series. While on vacation in Africa, I made sure I was somewhere with Wi-Fi when one of the books was being released. Then I managed to download the book from a version of Amazon in another language.

I could tell you that the writing is strong, the characters are well developed and the plots are fantastic; some of which are downright hilarious or so emotional that I've had tears streaming down my cheeks as I've read. That would all be true. But what I like the most about these books is that they are touching on issues that are relevant to the DD lifestyle. The argument of discipline being abuse, issues of dominance and submission, importance of communication between partners, what consent means, inconsistency... the list goes on and on. There are even classes that teach the HoH how to effectively spank by using a forensic dummy!

My only real issue with the believability of the stories in general involves the children of the community. While the master bedrooms of the houses are soundproofed and all effort is made to keep the discipline and talk of spanking/rules/consequences away from the ears of children, there is a road in the community named Spanking Loop, a Sushi restaurant named Ginger Paddle which has some appropriately named menu items, a welcome basket given to new residents that contains a paddle... not to mention the resident paddle and strap maker that will travel to "help" the single women in need. Personally, I find it hard to believe, even in a story format, that the children and adolescents of the community are completely kept in the dark about what goes on. Especially if they walk past the house of the couple that leaves their windows open when a spanking is happening.

There are many of the authors that I love the writing of (one of my absolute favourites is Maren Smith, who I've been following and reading her books for several years) and have read all their works, as well as one that I would prefer not to read at all. That's my personal preference. But overall, I love the series. If you're curious, head over to the blog called Corbin's Bend, and check them out. Links to each book is listed at Amazon, Barnes and Noble and Lulu. There is also a cook book titled, Other Uses for a Wooden Spoon.

The next time you're driving on the road through the mountains of Colorado, U.S.A, keep an eye out for the sign that announces the community of Corbin's Bend ahead.

The sign is made of wood.

When No One is Home


All my life, animals have been part of my family. When I was born, my parents had a Sheep dog who had just weaned her litter and sent the little ones to good homes. She took over "herding" me, always making sure I was safe, didn't wander off the property, and added my brother to her litter as he came alone. By the time we were in school, the dog didn't want to see us go and would follow us to the doors of the building and wait the entire day, or if someone opened the door, would make her way into the classrooms to check on her "pups". Many times the office staff would have to call my Mom to come and collect the dog.

Our family wasn't without pets, until we all went to University and started our own households (with pets). Usually the pets were dogs and cats, but we did have a rabbit, a Gar Pike, several lizards, hamsters, guinea pigs, and even mice. Sorry, Blondie, no snakes! (*|*)

Many times I would wonder if the four legged members of the household were bored while they were alone for the day... what would they get up to, I would wonder. Ever wondered that?

Let's take a look...








 
 
I'm sure that sex isn't all they think about or get up to when alone. I don't know about you but I don't know what these next two were thinking.

 
 
Have a good week! :D
