Wednesday WIN

It's nice to read about old-fashioned fathers.


This is real, right? It must be. Still, I wonder...

sorry, but to me real or not its crazy..Sir Spanks..father does not. this just makes me feel uncomfortable. Is that because the way I love spanking is nothing to do with my father, but everything to do with my Daddy. :)

Spanky said...

I think the 6 kisses in 40 years is the most bizarre part. That is hard to believe.

david said...

Whats unusual about only kissing your wife 6 times in 4oyears?I knew a man who took is wife everywhere with him as it saved him kissing her goodbye !Ithank you hope the party went well david

Hermione said...

I can understand your distaste for being spanked by your father. This article reads like a fictitious spanking porn story.

Hermione said...

Hard indeed. I wonder how many times he has spanked her?

Hermione said...

Very funny, David:)

We had a very nice evening out.

Six kisses in 40 years - I think that is strange. A father spanking a daughter after a certain age is sooo not cool.

sarah thorne said...

While there is much dysfunction in this situation, I do think that if the man's daughter is staying in his home he does have the right to state a rule of coming in by a certain time, especially if the grandparents are keeping the grandkids while she is out (which I suspect they are). I mean, when you live in someone else's domain (especially rent free, which I also suspect was the case here), you're kinda subject to how they want things done in their home.

That does NOT mean he has any right to touch her like he did. The choice,really, is 'this is what we need from you, and if you're not willing then you don't have to stay here.' However unfair that may be, it IS his house, and if he doesn't want someone coming in at all hours of the night, whether it is a control issue or he simply doesn't wanna have to worry about hearing the noise, that is his prerogative.

That being said, I can't believe she took him to court and still resided in his home.

The judge's decision made me smile. If he spanks his daughter - does he spank his wife I wonder.

Love,

Kitty said...

I would NOT have appreciated getting spanked by my father as a grown woman, but like Sarah said, "his house, his rules".

Thanks for sharing!

Love,
Kitty

I love it, I am definitely on the Father's side, if she is living under his roof, then he should be able to put her across his knee when she does not follow the rules, regardless of her age. We need more George Thompsons in this world.

So not sexy. All other questions aside, just not. If someone wrote this as spanking porn it's a mighty fail.

Not even going near the 6 kisses thing. ???

I never know what you're going to come up with.

Grace said...

What on earth? Personally, I think this belongs in Friday FAIL.

sixofthebest said...

Maybe instead of kissing his wife 'six times', in forty years of marriage. He should have given her 'six of the best' with a cane, on her bare bottom, once a week.

Erica said...

Yeah, I'm kinda hoping it's NOT real! (shudder) If I had a father like that, I'd put myself up for adoption.

Hermione said...

I agree,which is why I thought it was fake.

Hermione said...

Sarah, you make several good points. The father had every right to set the rules in his home.

As for the daughter taking him to court, it happens on Judge Judy all the time.

Hermione said...

Who knows? I would suspect so.

Hermione said...

Surely it wasn't the first time he had spanked her. She must have known there would be consequences.

Hermione said...

I'm inclined to agree with you. That's why I called it a WIN. Others may disagree, of course.

Hermione said...

Okay, that's one vote for this being a FAIL.

Spankedhortic II said...

Can't help but think that parents of thirty something year old offspring, that are still living in their home, might just be tempted to start doing this. To insentivize them to find their own place.

Hermione said...

And another vote for FAIL. Could be I got it wrong:)

Hermione said...

Ah, now there's an idea that has some merit.

Hermione said...

The byline "From our own correspondent" made me suspicious. If not fake, it must be from a very old newspaper.

Hermione said...

A little "tough love" - good idea. I hope the advice columnists pick up on this tip.

Emen said...

No it's a win cos look at the reaction you got. You cast your stone in the water and watch the ripples. When the ripples sit up and look back at you with What? That's a good stone. That's a win.

Marina said...

Hey there, I've been a lurker for years, only had my first experiences last year, and I've got to say this gave me such a bad feeling it's the first time I've ever felt compelled to come out of my shell and comment! Awful, awful! Definitely Friday Fail!

That said, I do love your blog usually, read it everyday. It was one of my first exposures to the community. Thanks for all you do!

Hermione said...

Welcome, Marina. I'm glad I finally gave you a reason to comment. Please feel free to leave one anytime.

Mitch Philbin said...

From Memories of A Strict Uncle (http://tinyurl.com/89em4j6) Still an interesting dilemma, but perhaps with a bit more perspective.

"George Thompson was a man who knew how to keep his daughter Loretta in line - even when she was 34 years old. She stayed out until midnight according to this front page LA Times report of the 25 May 1938 and her bottom paid the price with Loretta across her daddy's knee. The matter was resolved with Loretta agreeing to be home by 10.00pm during the week and at midnight on weekends."

Hermione said...

Mitch, it's the same newspaper clipping.
