Can you believe that half of this year ends today. Make the best of what is to come. Enjoy the day.
As I mentioned in my last post, it is "hotter than a pepper sprout" here and even more so where we are headed. In view of that, we decided to delay our trip for a few days. Granted it will be hot but 103 is better than 123 for us and for the vehicles. We tend to get a little crotchety and you all know where that leads. Not necessarily a bad thing BUT...
Come back tomorrow for another new story. Until then see you later for more
It's hotter than Hades here. Over 100 degrees. I think it's getting me ready for Arizona. I'm anxious to see our friends but not anxious for the terribly hot weather they have there. Granted, there is no humidity like there is here, but anything over a hundred is hot, no matter what. Last night we had some great food. My brother likes to cook too and together we made a great meal for family and friends. We started with grilled jalapenos stuffed with cream cheese and wrapped in bacon. The Louisiana Red Fish he caught last year was also grilled cajun style, accompanied by parmesan crusted green tomatoes, yellow rice and, of course, ice cold beer. OMG it was so good, we all sat around rubbing our tummies. Tonight we are off to Babe's, a really great friend chicken place. I love it and since we won't be back here for a while, I need to get my fix. The other day another nephew came into town so we all trooped down to Christina's our favorite Mexican food place. Getting them all in before we take off. I spent yesterday packing away all of the things that need to be stowed. It's hard to believe we have been here just over three months. Time sure flies when you're having fun. Speaking of fun, we haven't done much dancing lately. Things are getting dusty again, and at our age, you have to keep things oiled otherwise they get rusty so we are going to have to fix that very soon. We are on the road in the AM, going to miss this beautiful place with all the green, heading to BROWN country. The good news is California is just around the bend and it's a little greener, at least where we are headed.
So glad to hear that Emily is on the mend. Continued good wishes to Jim, Christina and her family and prayers for a speedy recovery. It was wonderful to see us all banding together for a common cause after the fracas of THE ARTICLE THAT SHALL REMAIN NAMELESS. See you later for more Aimless Ramblings.
I bet you were all surprised when you dropped in on Ana's site yesterday, looking for my FIKA interview. No, I haven't changed names and although I do have another identity, it is not Penelope Jones. Penelope Jones, a gifted writer and one of the writers that participated in the Spankee Doodle Dandy blog hop was the featured guest on this week's FIKA.
When Ana invited me she said she just happened to have a slot come up due to a cancellation. I was given the okay to go ahead and announce I would be her guest on Monday, June 24th. The posts were scheduled to appear on Sunday and Monday and then I went out of town and off line. I didn't get Ana's message that Penelope Jones would appear on Monday after all until I returned late last evening and after the fact.
Sorry for the misunderstanding, but Ana assures me my interview will be next Monday.
On another much more serious note, I just learned of the illness of Jim and Christina's daughter. My thoughts and prayers are with them now and in the days to come.
They walked along the beach hand in hand. This vacation was the beginning of a new
chapter in their lives. They had been
together for years but he worked in a profession that had him away from home
every other month. Their kids saw their dad as a part time visitor in their home
because their mom took care of everything.
They looked to her for all their needs and over the course of time she
became the controlling partner in their marriage. It worked and when David came home he didn’t
have to do a thing. He became like one
of the kids, except for the sex part. Six
months of the year they were like bunnies but for the other six months she had
her “friend”. Eventually, their sex life
That all changed last year when he suffered a heart attack
and decided that life was too short to continue living that way. While he was
recuperating, he and Monica really talked for the first time in years. They had never talked about anything in depth
– there was never enough time. For the first time, he realized that although his
job provided a good living for his family what they had really needed was his
presence in their lives. He hoped it
wasn’t too late for his marriage because it was too late for the kids. The kids were not kids anymore, at 20 and 24
they were grown. Marla had graduated
from college and moved to Seattle with her new husband. Jason, the brain of the family, was doing an
accelerated college program and was in school but for a couple of weeks each
year. Once he graduated he would be off
on an undersea exploration vessel that specialized in Marine Biology.
If anything good could be said about having a heart attack,
his timing was perfect. For the first
time, Monica would have been all alone in the house during his month long
absences. She had really suffered from
Empty Nest Syndrome once Marla was gone. His attack occurred on the rig. He was flown to a hospital and once
stabilized, transferred back to the states and sent home to recuperate. Monica once again assumed the caretaker role
she knew so well. She was in her element.
This worked well for the first two months because David
needed her care and he was used to letting Monica take charge. That's when he decided to take an early
retirement from his position. At first
Monica was thrilled.
Then, little by little, David started making decisions. Monica, who had always been the decision
maker, did not take to this new “David” very well. They disagreed and argued like they never had
before. Their time together had always
been so limited that by the time they would start to get on each other’s nerves
it was time for him to depart for another stint. This cycle was forever broken and they had to
come to a new arrangement.
David decided they needed to get out of their usual routine
and take an extended vacation. He
suggested they go spend some time at the beach cottage. He had inherited this cottage from his family
and they always spend summers there, whether he was with them or not. They were all beach rats and she thought it
was a great idea.
It was on one of their walks that Monica brought up how she
felt about David taking over things that had always been left to her. She told
him she felt hurt and asked if he thought she hadn’t done a good job. He explained that she had been more than
competent and had raised two wonderful children and now it was time for her to
“retire” too. He told her he had been thinking about this for some time and
that he should take on some of the responsibility he had ceded to her years
back. He thought this would help their
“What’s wrong with our marriage” she asked.
“We live more like siblings than husband and wife. At least when I used to come home before we
had a sex life; the last couple of years it seems like we had sex the first day
home and then right before I left again. Now, it is non-existent”
“You’ve just suffered a heart attack”
“Don’t use that as an excuse. You know very well the doctor said I was fine
and could go back to leading a normal life.
That was months ago. It just seems to me if I took on more of the
responsibilities you would have more time for us. Maybe you’ll see me as “Man of the House’ instead of just another
member of this household that needs to be cared for. I am not one of the kids or one of our dogs,
I am your husband and your lover, I want to act like one and be treated like
one. Does that make sense to you?”
“It makes perfect sense and together we will find a
way. This is a good start. I promise I will try to be a better wife to
“Honey, you’ve been the perfect wife to me. I am home for good now and I want the rest of
our life to be different. I want to take
on more of a leadership role – have you to lean on me for a change. That’s what
I’ve been trying to do. I realize it isn’t easy for you to let go. I am sure there will be more bumps in the
road ahead, but we will make it because the one thing we have going for us is
that deep down we love each other. In my eyes you are still the same sexy girl
that stole my heart and you still have it”.
“Thank you and I will
try, I promise. You might have to keep reminding
me and give me a nudge once in a while, though”
“I have a solution in mind” he said, giving her a wink and a
sharp slap on her rump.
The rest of their time at the cottage was spent finding a
way back to what they once had. Monica
shopped in the local village and bought some sexy lingerie. David visited online adult stores and ordered
a couple of toys. Their sex life had definitely improved. They were laughing
with and at each other and enjoying their new togetherness.
When they returned to real life, Monica tried. When he didn’t do it quite the way she
expected, she let him know and would often try to take over. David stayed strong. He would firmly tell her he would handle
things. There were several times when he had almost lost his patience with her
and vowed dire consequences but all in all things seemed to be going fine.
One morning David awoke to lots of clanging and
banging. When he went downstairs he
could see ladders up against the kitchen windows. He went outside to find out what was going on. There was Monica standing there talking to
one of the workers.
“What’s going on Monica?" He asked.
“These are the guys who are going to paint the house. Remember we talked about this.” she replied.
He spoke to the lead painter and asked him to not start
anything yet. He then asked Monica to
join him in the house.
“You hired the painters,” he said in a voice calmer than he
“Well, time was marching on and you hadn’t done it, so I
just got a couple of bids and now you don’t have to worry about it” she
“We agreed I was going to have the final word on big
decisions, did we not?”
“Yes, but you didn’t make the decision so I did.”
“Well, I just made a decision. You can go out there and tell them they will
not be painting our house until I have a chance to check their credentials.” he
told her sternly.
“I most certainly will not.” She stomped her foot for effect
as she replied.
“Either you do it, or I will and if I do it you will not
like what I have to say.” he told her.
Monica did not budge.
He grabbed her arm and pulled her out the door with him. He spoke to the
boss and told him that his wife had no authority to hire them and he was sorry
but until he checked out their credentials they would not be painting his
house. He thanked them and apologized for the mix up and to send a
bill. When Monica heard what he said she
turned all shades of red. He fully
expected to see smoke coming out of her ears at any moment. She pulled free and
stormed into the house slamming the door behind her. He decided to give her
some time so he went for a walk. Her
attitude would determine his next step.
If she just let it be, he would just lecture. However, if she was looking for a fight, he
had something else in mind.
When David had made his online purchases, one of the items
was a small leather, hand stitched paddle.
They had tried using it a couple of times during their sexual play but
Monica was not a big fan. He had put it
away thinking that it might come in handy some day, especially because she did
not like it. Today might be the
Monica wasn’t in the kitchen when he got back to the
house. He found her in the bedroom
furiously cutting the legs off of a pair of his jeans. He looked at the floor and
saw several more pairs that had already been destroyed.
“I am cutting off these pants at the knee just like you cut
me off at the knees out there. I was so
humiliated. How dare you tell him I
needed your authorization. You do realize he is going to charge us for the
paint he’s already purchased and his time, don’t you?”
“Yes, I do realize that and I am going to take it out of
He walked over to his nightstand, pulled out the paddle and
asked her if she remembered it. She told
him she had and that she hated it.
“Exactly,” he said.
“That’s why I am going to put you across my knee and paddle your behind
until you get the message that I am in charge.
Now we can do this nicely or you can make it difficult, but either way
it is going to happen.”
She looked incredulous.
He reached over, pulled her over his lap and began lecturing her. He swatted her a couple of times, then
stopped, lectured, then spanked again.
She tried to get up but he told her they were not finished. He pulled down her jeans and gave her a
couple more swats with his hand. She was
really struggling now, he could see her sweet little ass turning a bright shade
of pink. But he wanted to make this
memorable because he wasn’t sure he would have the resolve to do it again. He picked up the leather paddle and really
started reddening her backside. When she
stopped fighting him, he stopped spanking.
He kept her in place until she quieted.
He lifted her up and hugged her; he was surprised when she hugged him back. He was even more surprised when she kissed
him and said she was sorry.
When she spied the paddle on the bed she asked him to get it
out of her sight. She told him she hoped
she never saw it again. He told her he
hoped so too but that would be up to her.

Yesterday was an absolutely beautiful day here in Texas, at least in our little part of it. There was another thunder storm the night before so the air was fresh and clean and was that bright blue with white puffy clouds. Warm with no humidity and a very gentle breeze. Absolutely perfect. The only thing missing is a beach. Love those beaches. We will be doing that in just a little under a month. Speaking of beaches, I just finished reading a book The Beachcomber's Love, by Abigail Armani. its a story about finding romance and love. Greg is a freelance writer whose hobby is beachcombing and one day he finds more than shells. Very sexy and a good summer read. It 's available on the LSF site ( link at top right of page) or through Amazon. This weekend we are going to friends so Ray can do some bass fishing. He tried this a couple of weeks ago but had no luck one day and the next day there were whitecaps on the lake. It will be his last chance til' next year because the following Friday/Saturday we take off for Arizona. That means grandsons are only about 20 days away. Can't believe #1 is already 13. I keep teasing him about girlfriends and he doesn't answer. He does do a lot of primping though. lol Things have been pretty hectic this week but one day we actually had a couple of hours of alone time and made the best of it. Some of those moth-free implements got aired. Lovely. BTW, a couple of people asked about a doggin bat. Here is a pic, it's easier to show it than to describe.
The first one is from Eden Fantasy, the others are just pics off Google Search. I think we purchased ours from Spartacus and it looks just like the one from Eden Fantasy. It really is one of my favorite implements. See you later for more Aimless Ramblings.
Jack was on his way to pick up his sister from the
airport. She was coming to scope out the
city and to seek employment opportunities.
She was newly divorced after a long separation and wanted to start
anew. They had been raised in a small
town in Iowa and Karen wanted to
try life somewhere else.
Jack had moved to Baltimore
years ago and had made a great life for himself. He purchased an old house in a great
neighborhood thinking he would settle down, find a lady and raise his
family. So far he had not found just the
right lady and so here he was, in suburbia, with a huge house and no one except
him to roam the many vacant rooms. When Karen told him she wanted to make a
fresh start he suggested she come visit and see what she thought. It might be the perfect fit for everyone.
Karen loved what she saw.
When she saw the house she was charmed beyond belief. It was such a pretty house on such a
beautiful street and the surrounding area looked just like a movie
setting. He told her he was glad she
liked it and she would be more than welcome to move in with him. She told him that would depend on a lot of
factors but she thanked him for his generosity.
Two days later Karen was interviewing for a paralegal job
with a large law firm downtown. This job
would be a godsend for her and go a long way to establishing a new beginning
for her and the kids. As she was leaving the building she bumped into a man
just coming through the door. The papers
he had in his hands were now all over the floor. She was so apologetic and helped him to
retrieve his belongings. He told her not
to worry he was preoccupied and not paying attention. She told him the same thing. They laughed.
He invited her to join him for a cup of coffee at the coffee shop.
“I would like that and it’s my treat. It’s the least I can
do after spewing your papers all over the lobby” Karen said.
“Not necessary” he said.
“Maybe not, she replied, but I am still going to treat”
“Oh, one of the independent type city girls” he replied.
“Thanks for the compliment” Karen said
“What do you mean, said Rey
“Well, I am just visiting the city. I’m from a small town in Iowa. My brother lives here and invited me to come
take a look because I wanted to make a fresh start.”
He told her that was great info but he still didn’t know her
name. His name was Reynolds Johnson and
that his friends call him Rey.
“OMG, she said. Reynolds Johnson of the law firm Reynolds
Johnson & Associates”
“Yes, my fame precedes me.
I don’t know if that is good or bad” he said.
She told him she had just been interviewed for a paralegal
position at his law firm and that was why she was in the building and wool
gathering when she bumped into him.
“Are you any good at your profession?” he asked.
“I would say I am very good.
I have been doing it for a long time” she answered
“I like that. Well then, once I get upstairs I will check on your
application. But first, you really will
have to tell me your name.”
“I am Karen, Karen Blake Sorenson” she said laughingly.
That evening they had dinner at a waterfront
restaurant and Karen told him all about her interview and then meeting Reynolds
Johnson in the lobby. Jack laughed and
said she had bumped into the most eligible bachelor in the city. He had been widowed two years ago and he was raising his two children. Karen told him all she was looking for was a
job. On the way out of the restaurant Karen and Jack were waiting for the valet
when another car pulled up. Reynolds
Johnson and his two children stepped out.
“Twice in one day Ms. Sorenson” he said.
“Must be my lucky day, she replied.
She introduced Jack to Rey and Rey in turn introduced both
of them to his two children. When Jack’s car was brought up Karen said it was
nice seeing him again and meeting Dani and Dennis and stepping into the car
added: “I hope I’ll be hearing from you
Rey smiled and put an arm on each of his children and walked
into the restaurant.
Two days later Karen interviewed for another position and
was offered the job on the spot. She readily accepted the position. She called Jack and told him the good
news. She would be flying back to Iowa
the next day because there were tons of things that needed doing within the
next two weeks.
When Karen landed there was a message waiting from Jack. He
told her Reynolds Johnson had called for her. She called Jack and said she had
talked to them this morning and told them she had accepted another position.
“No, Jack said.
“Reynolds Johnson personally called, not his office. I told him you had flown back to Iowa
today. I just wanted to tell you not to
be surprised if he calls you”
Sure enough there was another message. She called and was surprised when Rey
answered the line.
“Hi Rey, this is Karen Sorenson returning your call.
“Hello Karen, where am I catching you?
“Actually, at the airport.
I just landed back in Iowa”.
He told her he wanted to call her personally to tell her the
position had been filled. He told her
she had excellent qualifications but they had re- hired someone who had
previously worked for them. She thanked
him for getting personally involved and told him she had already accepted a
position at another firm and that was why she was back in Iowa. She needed to move her children and household
to Baltimore within the next ten
He told her when she got back to town to give him a call
because he wanted to buy her dinner. He
felt he owed her that much. She told him
it wasn’t necessary.
“Maybe not, but I want to do it anyway” he told her.
The move went very well considering how quickly it had to be
done. Jack was gracious enough to move
upstairs so that she and the kids could have the downstairs. Jack had his own
entrance providing privacy for any overnight guests. They would only share the
kitchen and Jack said he never used it that much anyway. She was able to get the kids enrolled in the
local “Y” program for the remainder of the summer and for after school once the
summer was over. She could drop them off
and pick them up on the way to and from the office. Things were really falling
into place and she was thrilled.
Karen started her new job that following Monday. It was a large firm and a lot of opportunity
for her. She was so busy the first week
just flew by. There was a company picnic
that Saturday and she thought the kids would love it. While she was play softball she lost a
bracelet that was a family heirloom. The
sentimental value far outweighed the monetary value but it was something she
treasured. She had everyone looking for
this bracelet to no avail. She left word
with the park staff and even offered a modest reward for the return on the
bracelet. Two weeks went by and she
decided to post ads on several local bulletin boards. She received many responses as a result of
these ads. One of them was from Rey
Johnson. He told her he had seen the ad
and recognized the phone number. He
chided her for not telling him she was back in Baltimore
and then gave her a lecture about placing an ad with her phone number in such
public places. He told her that might
have been fine in the small town in Iowa
but not in a large city such as Baltimore. He went on and on and when he was done she
felt thoroughly chastised. She hadn’t
received such a dressing down since she was a little girl. She told him she
hadn’t given it a thought because she hadn’t included her name and thanked him
for his advice. He said he was probably
overreacting but you couldn’t be too careful these days. She liked how protective he seemed, not only
now, but since she had first met him.
When he asked her to dinner she told him yes but she would have to find
someone to sit with her kids. He
suggested she come to his house for dinner and bring the children with
her. It was a way for the children to
become acquainted. She said yes and they
made plans to meet the following Saturday.
He lived in a gated community and when she was buzzed in she
was led to his house that overlooked Chesapeake Bay. There was a circular driveway leading to a
three story brick house. Rey and his children were standing on the porch as she
pulled up. She felt a little intimidated
by the neighborhood and this house but Rey put her and her children at ease
immediately. He introduced himself to
her children and then his children to her.
As they walked in the door, he put his arm around her waist and led them
through the house to the back deck. She experienced a tummy tingle at his touch
– something she hadn’t experienced for quite a while. He had hor’s d’oevres and cocktails for
them, and kid friendly snack food and lemonade for the youngsters. All the kids
immediately took off to the dock leaving Rey and Karen to themselves. She thanked him for being so thoughtful to
include her children.
“I figured if we were
going to date we might as well get the kids used to each other. If something comes of our date, terrific and
there’s no pressure later on of getting to know the new guy or gal; and, if
not, at least the kids have made some new friends”.
“So, should I consider this our first date”. She asked him.
“That’s exactly what you should do”, he responded.
He barbecued hamburgers and hot dogs on the grill, had made
a green salad with strawberry shortcake for dessert. It was perfect; they ate outdoors and watched
the lights of the city and then all went inside for a rousing game of Chinese
checkers. When it came time to leave, he
told the kids how much he enjoyed meeting them and gave Karen a brief kiss on
the cheek. She could feel the heat on
his lips and knew she wanted more, much more from this man.
On the way home the kids chatted constantly about how much
fun they had. “Did you have fun too Mom
and can we go back again?”
“I think that is a distinct possibility” she told them with
a great big smile on her face.
They continued to spend time together, sometimes with the
kids sometimes without. He treated her
and the children wonderfully. He was
definitely a good dad but could be a bit of a hard taskmaster. He expected things a certain way and she
noticed that he brooked no sass or misbehaviors in the children. There were ground rules to be obeyed and when
they weren’t, the children would find themselves without privileges until he
deemed they had learned their lesson. He
never interfered with her children in that manner but would raise an eyebrow
when he felt they were out of line. He
even took her to task once in a while but she didn’t think anything of it until
one day she threw a temper tantrum about something he said to one of her kids. He directed her out of the child’s hearing
range and told her he didn’t accept that kind of behavior from his children and
he certainly would not accept it from her because it set a bad example. He was
a Class A lecturer and she just wanted him to be quiet.
“Don’t chastise me like I’m a child, I’m a parent”
“Then act like a parent”.
She stomped her foot and as she turned around to go back to
the kitchen he delivered a swat to her fanny.
“What was that?” she asked
“It was a small sample of what I would really like to do
“And what is that?”
“I would like to take you over my knee and spank the
daylights out of you for acting like such a brat”.
That stopped her in her tracks and left her speechless. She wasn’t sure how to react to that
statement. She was saved when his
daughter walked in and asked her dad a question. Karen took this opportunity to gather up the
kids and said they were leaving.
Once she was home and the kids were settled she started
thinking about what he had said and the behavior that had led to his
statement. She knew she didn’t like the
idea of anybody correcting her children implying that she was a bad mother. He
had not done that but this was a sensitive topic because it was something her
ex-husband always threw up to her in their arguments. She realized she had over reacted and felt
bad about how she had handled things.
Maybe he had the right idea.
Maybe she did deserve a spanking.
The idea wasn’t abhorrent to her.
If she was honest, the thought of being across his knee was a little
exciting. She needed to apologize. He
was probably even more upset with her because of the way she left but she
didn’t think she could take any more lectures tonight. So instead of calling she sent him a text
message that she was sorry and that maybe he was right.
She expected him to text back and when he had not done so
before she went to bed, she wondered if she had ruined her chances for a future
with Rey. She tossed and turned all
night. She still hadn’t heard from him that morning and when rolled around and no message; she felt
heartsick. When she left work that
evening, he was standing by her car. Her
“We have to talk”.
“I know, but right now I have to pick up the kids”
“I called your brother and asked if he would be available to
do so because I had planned a surprise for you”
“How dare you be so presumptuous?”
“And this is just one of the things we are going to talk
They drove to a small quiet restaurant and settled into a
booth in the back. It was a little
awkward at first but once Karen had a few sips of wine she found her
voice. She told him she had thought
about the events of the previous evening and realized she had overreacted. He told her she definitely had and he
apologized for the smack on the fanny but that she had him so riled it was just
a natural reaction.
“I’ve thought about that too Rey and you may just be
right. I have a quick temper, it doesn’t
last but it flares brightly for a while” her face reddened as she said these
“Are you saying you think you deserve a spanking sometimes?
“Yes…….that’s what I’m saying and sometimes I really would
prefer it rather than listening to one of your lectures.”
He laughed and said “Well, I am a lawyer and I would have to
take that under advisement, but I think you have just named your own sentence”.
Three days later, the sentence was carried out. Karen had her first spanking from Rey. It was memorable. What was even better was
there was no lecture and there was great aftercare.
She never did fine her bracelet but somehow it didn't seem to matter, she had found so much more.
Thank you all for your good wishes and all your encouraging words along the way that made my recent announcement possible. So glad you crossed my path. Happy Flag Day Everyone. See you later for more Aimless Ramblings.
Well, I have gone and done it. I took your suggestions, went ahead, and submitted a couple of my stories to a publisher. Guess what, you were right!!!! They accepted them and I am now an official author. I am so excited. Ray is getting goose pimples. I think he may be more excited than I am.
Thank you all for your support. I especially want to thank PK who got me started on this path. I found Cassie who led me to New Beginnings. Fantasy Friday inspired me to give writing a chance. It just proves you're never too old to learn new things.
Go by and visit LSF Publications or Amazon if you just can't live without a copy. See you later for more Aimless Ramblings.
Those of you that visit regularly know I always refer to my SO as hubby. A time or two over the last eighteen months I have said I should give him a name. Much like Blondie, I received many suggestions but I still had not picked one I thought "fit". Well, that has changed. The other day, Roz came up with the one I think will stick. It's Ray, like ray of sunshine to go with Sunny Girl. He is my ray of sunshine so that's his new name on this blog (if I can remember, if not please remind me.) Thank you, Roz. Ray likes his new name. He's happy to finally have an identity. He even jokes he's not anonymous anymore.
Hooray!!!!!! Ray stepped up to the plate the other day. He dusted off the leather paddle, the belt, the paint stirrer and the doggin bat. I think I saw moths along with the stars.
After the last episode at the site the other day, as much as he hated doing it he
called a halt to the house construction project for ten days. He gave the
workers half pay and hoped they would return when he was ready for them. This deserved a break too.
knew he had to get Erica out of there. Her feeling sorry for accidentally
closing the door on his hand wasn’t going to last very long. He had suggested she take a week at her
favorite spa – she told him she would rather spend the time with him and then
asked if he was trying to get rid of her.
Actually he was. He knew she was
bored to tears and she was making life miserable for both of them. It was beginning to affect the project
because she was constantly making demands and interrupting the workers with
question after question. She had been
over his knee more in the last three weeks than in the last three years.
When he told her his decision he asked what she would like
to do for the next ten days. She hugged
him and told him he was the best husband in the world and whatever he decided
would be okay with her. He knew she
missed the hustle and bustle of their old life so he arranged a trip to
Arizona. If they stayed in Scottsdale,
she would have all the excitement she craved and he would have a chance to
check out Taliesin West and get some ideas. He loved the coloring and
contouring of the southwest and wanted to see if it would fit into his design
plans for their new home.
He told her to pack casually and for a warmer climate but he
kept their destination a surprise. April in Arizona was beautiful with warm
sunny days and cool evenings. The desert was in full bloom at this time of year
and the panoramas always managed to take his breath away.
“But aren’t we taking the motor home?” she asked
“No, we are not. We
will be using other means of transportation”
“But I thought we would be taking our home with us, now I
have to pack” she whined.
“Well, we are not.
You have been complaining about being stuck here with nothing to do, I
thought you would be happy to be getting away from it”
“I was not complaining about being here, just not having
“If that wasn’t complaining, then I better check the
dictionary because I don’t know the meaning of that word” he told her.
“I just want to spend some time with you. You are always at that site and pay less and
less attention to me”.
“It seems to me you have been getting quite a bit of my
“That’s not what I mean and you know it. You have just turned in a curmudgeonly old
man, spanking me every chance you get”
“Are you telling me you don’t think you deserved any of
She smiled at him with that little grin that just melted his
heart and answered “well, maybe one or two of them”.
He smiled back at her and told her to get her fanny in gear
now or she would be getting some more attention shortly.
“You are such a grouch” she replied and swatted him as she
When they arrived at the airport counter, he still wouldn’t
let her hear where they were going. It
wasn’t until they arrived at the gate she saw the destination. She smiled and reached up and gave him a
He rented a car and drove to the Biltmore. Erica loved the Biltmore and it was central
to everything she craved, shopping, and museums and on and on. She could spend many days not even leaving
the hotel if she chose. There were so
many amenities available to them. When
she got to the room the first thing she did was book an appointment for a couples
massage for that very afternoon. Scott
said it would be nice if she had asked him before she just jumped in.
“Why, you planned this trip so we could have time together,
didn’t you? Or did you plan to abandon
me again and head off to the golf course?”
“No, Erica, I didn’t even bring my golf clubs as you well
know. Are you snarky already, because if
so I can fix that?”
“Scott, I just want you to relax too and spend some time
with you. Don’t you want to spend time
with me anymore?”
“Honey, you know I do.
We don’t spend any less time together than we used to. When we lived at the house I was gone most of
the day at the office or somewhere on business.
The difference is you had something to fill up your days so you didn’t
have to rely on me for company. I know
it’s hard on you but once we are settled in our new home we will have lots of
time together. So much so you will
probably want to get rid of me”.
“I will never want to get rid of you, well maybe a couple of
hours here and there, but that’s it. So
you’re okay with the couples massage this afternoon”
“I’m fine with it, my point was you didn’t ask, you just
assumed and you know I don’t like it when you do that”
“I’ll make it up to you” she said as she literally ran into
his arms. She began nibbling his neck
and whispering into his ear what she planned on doing to him. He carried her over to the bed and lay down
next to her. She sat up on her knees,
undid his belt, removed his jeans and when she removed his whitey tighties and
he sprang loose. She scrunched down on
the bed and her mouth covered his manhood.
Her hands began massaging the “twins” as her tongue worked her
magic. Pre-cum beaded at the head and
she licked him off and began sucking hard. He was groaning as she continued her
ministrations. He tried to get up and
she pushed him back down.
“No you don’t big boy.
I have you just where I want you”.
Once again, she began, touching, licking and sucking. When she noticed him tensing and his moaning
grew louder, she took him all the way back in her throat and brought him to
completion. He laid back and put his
arms behind his head and told her that was the best blow job she had delivered
in some time.
“That’s your reward for me being so bitchy lately. I’m sorry I know I’m doing it but I just
can’t seem to stop myself once I get started”.
He responded that luckily he knew how to stop that
cycle. She laughed and said he sure did.
“My bum has been sore a lot lately. But buddy boy, now it’s my turn”.
He sat up, removing her clothing piece by piece and
replacing each uncovered area with kisses.
He worked his way down to her honeypot and she was so ready for
him. He began returning the favor and
soon brought her to fruition. By then he
was ready to go again and he entered her already quivering passage and soon
they were both writhing in pleasure.
They both fell asleep and were awakened to the ringing of
the house phone. It was the Massage
Center calling to remind them they were due there in ten minutes.
The next day Erica asked if Scott wanted to join her at
Pedregal. It was her favorite shopping
center and she couldn’t wait to visit some of the shops and see what she
couldn’t live without. Scott told her to
go ahead but to remember her purchases had to fit within the confines of their
motor home. She told him she would do
her best. He laughed and said she
better. He asked her if she wanted to
meet for lunch and she said how about back here for cocktails later in the day.
“You’re tired of spending time alone with me already” he
“Not the case at all.
I know how much you hate shopping and you take all the joy out of it for
“I also tend to keep a lid on the amount of money you
“That too” she responded giggling.
It was a beautiful day and she enjoyed herself. She loved going in and out of the shops at
her leisure. She stopped for lunch at
one of the many outdoor venues there and enjoyed a couple of glasses of wine
with lunch. When she was finished she
called a taxi to take her back to the hotel. Scott wasn’t there when she
arrived which fit right into her plans.
Her plan included taking a long hot soak in the Jacuzzi tub and dressing
in her new purchases awaiting his return.
She dressed in the corset, thigh high black hosiery, and
black stiletto ankle strapped heels. She
arranged her hair and put on the long dangly silver earring she had purchased
along with the other items. She applied light makeup, his favorite fragrance
and sat back on the lounge anxiously waiting for Scott.
When she heard the card in the lock she put on what she
thought was her most sultry look. She
couldn’t wait to see the surprised look on Scott’s face. The surprised look was also on her face
because just ahead of Scott was their son, and their two grandkids.
“Oh my God”, she yelled out just as Jamie was yelling
“Grammy, Grammy, are you dressed for Halloween?” She was so embarrassed – she couldn’t
move. Their son realized what was
happening and ushered the children out onto the balcony. Scott went into the bedroom and brought her a
She tried recovering her composure and went out to the
balcony to greet everyone. The kids came
up and hugged her and she managed to squeak out
“What are you doing here?” she tried asking casually.
Dad called and invited us out for a couple of days. He seemed to think you needed some
diversions. As he said that he had a
grin on his face and Erica could feel the color creeping up her neck and face.
“Where’s your darling other half?” Erica asked.
“She couldn’t make it but told us to go ahead. We’re only here ‘til tomorrow night because I
have to get back.”
“Jack, why don’t you take the kids down to the pool and Dad
and I will join you shortly”
“Good idea, Mom. See
When the kids left, Scott hugged Erica and said he was
sorry. He thought it would be a great
surprise. She told him it was. Scott said he tried to get June to come too
but she was out of the country.
“Thank God Scott; I don’t think I could take anymore
“You look pretty sexy for a grandma” he told her. “Save that
thought and outfit for later” he told her with a wink.
“While I was waiting at
the airport, I picked up a little something too” and in his hand he held a
beautifully tooled leather belt. She got
one of those shivers and it was 85 degrees outside.
