Hope you did and are having a nice extended weekend break as well.
Politics of the day aside and focusing only on the element of gratitude, I'm still not sure why Thanksgiving Day is just one day - Why can't we be grateful year round?
I found this illustration years ago and it became an instant favorite of mine.
However, the answer may not be immediately obvious as some may think.
Then why you may ask? Well, I will counter that question with my own question:
What is the first thing that comes to your mind when you see this illustration?
(Don't forget you can click on the image to enlarge it.)
know you are a spanking enthusiast if the first thing that comes to
mind is probably something different than what Pilgrim Smith here, had
in mind; ever grateful upon seeing this helpless heroine. Yes, did your
mind wander to...
all the way to...
yes, a spanking!
Okay perhaps you thought a caning, a strapping or a belting - I’ll take those answers as one in the same with my answer of a spanking.
However, If I shared this image with most of my friends, male friends in particular, I am pretty damn certain that "a spanking" would not be the first thing to come to their minds.
So I ask, am I truly amongst like-minded friends here in blogland?
If so tell me, when you first saw this illustration, what was the first thing to come to YOUR minds?
A few extra random thoughts:
I am also curious on details and ask, what happened to her bloomers or pantaloons or panties? I am not a historian so don't know what they would have looked like exactly, but was expecting to see them down around her ankles or discarded near her bonnet.
Also to clarify, once I was done with spanking her, then yes other thoughts would cross my mind. Mainly making use of her innocent, now red-hot, bottom for other non-Puritan uses.
If you have any information on the artist that would be appreciated. I have it noted as possibly being Norman Saunders, but can't seem to find it online anywhere to confirm which is in of itself rather surprising. Google reverse image search used to be so much better.
Lastly, did you spot the lurker?
Oh, and a final note, it isn't too late to comment on my previous post. I know, I know; two posts in one week for me might be shocking, but take advantage and share your Thanksgiving related thoughts there and here.
