A New Year

Happy New Year – 2017 WOW – how the years do fly.  It seems like only yesterday we were all pondering what Y2K would bring, then is was 2012.  We’ve survived them all, relatively unscathed for the most part.  Here in the good ole USA, we’re all wondering what’s  going to happen on January 21st.  I can’t say I’m looking forward – hope I am surprised ‘bigly’ (his word, not mine.)

Ray and I had a lovely Christmas week.  You can’t beat having close family around at the holidays. My oldest grandson is a sweetie, handsome too and my youngest is a laugh a minute.  Just watching his constant motion makes you tired.  They’ve gone home now, and the house seems eerily quiet. Can’t wait til we see them all again.

For those of you who may not know, A Cowboy’s Love is out.  If you get a chance, why not grab a copy?  If you do, let me know what you think. I love getting feedback.

This starts the new year and right now I’m stalling because I  need to write a story.  No thoughts come to mind, so here goes and what you get, you get.  Lol

The hummingbird feeder needed cleaning, so I asked Bill if he would get it for me.  He’s not fond of this because for some reason when he tries to remove it from it’s hook, the hummingbirds dive bomb him.

“Why can’t you get it?”

“I’m in the middle of doing something.”

“Why can’t it wait until you’re done?”

“Remind me to tell you that the next time you immediately want something when I am smack dab in the middle of something else.”

“You know darn good and well that when I want something, you are supposed to jump to immediately.”

“Yeah, and when has that ever happened?”  He laughed, and I could hear the front door open.  The next thing I heard was a string of curse words and I knew the hummingbirds had made their displeasure known.  I don’t know why but they never bother me – I simply wait till they’re finished drinking and then they’ll wait up on the awning perch until I return. 

“That’s it.  I’m never doing that again.  You put the damn thing back.”

“Wuss, my husband the wuss.”

“Wuss, huh, I’ll give you wuss.  Them there are fightin’ words,” and with that statement came a couple of really firm swats on my backside.

I was drying the items in the sink, and at that moment, my hand made contact with the spatula I used for the morning’s breakfast.   Bill had just bent down to pick up something, and there it was, his ass, perfectly placed.  I didn’t have to do a thing, the spatula did it all  Three firm swats.

“Game on” I heard as he chased me around the kitchen.  We were both laughing so hard we couldn’t catch our breath, and I finally let him catch me. 

He bent me across the kitchen island and slapped my bottom.

“Is that the best you can do?” I asked

“You want more?”

“As you always say, does a bear poop in the woods?”

Up, over his shoulder I went, as he headed for the bedroom, slapping my ass all the way.
He sat down on the bed, pulling me across his lap.  Pappa Bear pulled down my jeans and panties and let loose with a flurry of spanks that soon had me oohing and aahing.  He was just beginning to explore the source of my wetness when we heard.

“Is everything all right in there?”

Talk about putting a damper on things, we’d both forgotten that Bill’s mother was still visiting.

“Everything’s fine, Mom,” Bill answered.

“I want to hear from you, Jill.  It sounded like you were crying out in pain? If my Bill is acting like a bully, I know just the solution.”

“Everything’s fine Mom.  But just for grins and giggles, what’s the solution in case I ever need it.”

“Why, a kitchen spatula, of course.”

Bill and I both collapsed in laughter.

A short but sweet story, right?  Gotta go now, the hummingbird feeder needs changing. As I scheduled this post I realized that today would have been my dad's 100th birthday.   See you later for more Aimless Ramblings.


  1. Hi Sunny, what a wonderful story to start the year :) Hope 2017 is a wonderful year for you.

    Glad you and Ray had a wonderful Christmas week with the family and wow, what a milestone 100 years would have been.

    Congratulations on the new book, definitely on my list :)


    1. You are so sweet Roz. Holidays were good, hope yours were as well.

      Thanks for the congrats on the book, BTW, do you read on your tablet?

  2. Hi Sunny, Glad you had a lovely time with the grandsons, our little angel went home yesterday. Like you it seems quiet now!
    Nice story,
    love Jan, xx

    1. THere's something to be said for the quiet too, although I enjoyed the business.

  3. Lovely story SG. Thank you.

    Christmas holidays went far too fast. Happy you had a a wonderful time your grandsons.


    1. They always do - you spend so much time waiting and anticipating and they're over in the flash of an eye.
      Hope yours were grand.

  4. I sure would like some grandchildren - you are very lucky! I liked the story - I'm beginning to remember that to write, you actually have to sit down and write. It always works for you, I hope it does for me.

    1. Your day will come and yes I am lucky in many ways. The story was just a cute sit down and out it came - I rue the day it doesn't happen.

  5. What a great story to kick off the new year, Sunny! Grands can be so much fun. My youngest is now on a kick to call me and tell on daddy whenever he does something naughty...she then expects me to punish him...long distance! LOL

    Hugs and blessings...Cat

    1. Glad you enjoyed Cat.

      That's a kick about your youngest - they pick up quick don't they?

  6. Loved hearing about your holidays with your family. It makes you realize how family is at the center of your happiness.

    Way too cold for hummingbirds here! They must have taken off for Sunny's house.

    Hugs From Ella

    1. Yes, the hummingbirds are constant visitors to my house. When we lived in Colorado I only saw them in the spring and summer, here it's all year long - I love them.

  7. That was fun! I enjoyed the ending it had me laughing!


Thanks for stopping by. Make it a Great Day
