The Bravery and the Recklessness of Ukraine’s Improvised Army

This article is by James Marson who leads Ukraine coverage for The Wall Street Journal.

A four-person Wall Street Journal team embeds with a Ukraine team and gives a first-person account of how Ukraine fights.

Remember the brave Ukraines who are fighting for freedom while you celebrate.




Happy New Year?

I am most pessimistic about 2023.

We have Iran, Russia and China triumvirate intent on displacing democratic economic and social values. It would not take much to turn hot.

Here, at home, Biden continues daily to exhaust our economy and freedom. We are infected with what LBJ called the red-hots. Those who think they know best.

Crime, especially in the Dem controlled cites, continues to increase.

I hope I am wrong, but 2023 looks to me like a bumpy ride.

Take a look at her, will she be smiling in the New Year?


Your Task for Today

You have one task today. Don’t screw it up.

Count how many times she spanks her friends.

Ready, GO!

Try this at home

I gave this one a second look and it’s the same as we use. Bacall has fur cuffs that were a gift. I folded one end of a leather strap over and sowed it to make loop. A wood dowel into the loop which holds it when the door is closed. Can be used where ever there is a door.

PVC pipe and two metal eyes make the spreader bar.

Some of this and that

Cleaning a folder out, two images actually depict spanking.

You ever dream about spanking Olivia Newton-John?

Around 1981, I had a photo of this team behind my desk. The whole team was bent over. There were men and women coming in my office all during the day. I don’t recall anyone even remarking on the photo. Different times.

If you remember Ed spanking Eve, you are old

If you remember photos like this, you are even older

My kind of gal

When I see something like this my palm cups. Levi Strauss had no idea how popular his utility pants would become.

Did You Get or Give a Hot Bottom for Christmas?

This reminds me of a gown Bacall had when we got married. Yes, she is an old fashioned girl that bought several gowns to wear when she got married. I was quite appreciative.

Have you gotten all those sleigh bells ringing songs out of your mind yet? Now the nation moves to the epic amateur drunk night of the year. Are you snowed in your driveway? I heard from three OBB readers that got Covid in the last week or so.

News from the home front

I think I mentioned that I got a hormone shot three months back. It was to shrink my substantially enlarged prostate. It did. It also had two side effects. The doctor advised us that it would make me lose interest in sex. It made me lose interest in even thinking about sex or spanking. That made publishing this blog a tad difficult. I pushed myself and thought of it as therapy.

So there has been no spanking around here. Until the day before Christmas when Bacall presented herself in traditionally red panties holding the Santa spoon paddle and allowed that she felt she needed to feel some warmth in her bottom. I was happy to accommodate her. And I got a surprise. I got a boner. The miracle of Christmas. We repeated it on Christmas Day.

Another second side effect of the drug was it “transitioned” me to a middle aged female. I get hot flashes, several times an hour. Boom, I lite up like a boon fire and click a fan on.

I will shut up and show some photos of paddles and women being paddled.

I would love to hear the stories of the guys and gals who signed this paddle.

I think every yearbook of this era featured a photo like this one.

Potpourri of Round Spankable Orbs

Gable spanks and she is excited

If I really need a good butt blistering, this is probably the best way to take it. Get tied in place and get it over without extras for not holding still!

I have included the mandatory spanked school girl.

A bath brush applied over white panties is  appropriate for any occasion or season.

Mother and daughter or friends?

And if you made it this far, you might like the first three pictures on my naughty Bdsmlr.

You will probably perve on the other pictures.

And Hey Folks, How about some comments from the lurkers. Say if you like it or it sucks.


Alright, Alright, Alright

We have had great weather the last month. 70’s and 80’s. That has changed. It’s now freaking cold. The forecast is for 17 Christmas morning. Cold weather does not put me in the mood for festivities.

I know it’s the week of Christmas. I know that most bloggers have already posted something with the Christmas theme. So I will post some images that are slightly humorous to me given my debased sense of humor Maybe one will give you a smile.

My usual attitude this time of year

Are you in the holiday spirit now?

Nothing Heavy This Week

Cause and Effect

Under President Biden’s policies, more than $4.1 trillion of new spending has been approved—roughly the amount, in real terms, that was spent to win World War II. This spending and debt blowout was the ignition switch that generated 8% inflation this year.

Herschel Walker was not the perfect conservative candidate, but in the end, the people of Georgia preferred a senator who is apparently little more than a slumlord and by all appearances, uses the auspices of a historic church to mask his shady activities.
The control that a black minister can have on church ladies is astonishing.

The censure of fools is applause.
Samuel Adams
Don’t confuse Sam with his cousin John. Sam is best known today as brand of beer. According to Ben Franklin and others there would have been no revolution without Sam Adams.
