Whip it!

Today's post is courtesy of my friend Jon, who discovered this sporting goods store.


Yes, it's a real store! Jon writes, "It is fun to imagine all the ‘sporting’ goods one could ask for. Ping-Pong paddle? Whiffle or minnie bat? Topsiders. [Pun intended.] I’m certain they will consider equestrian events sports for which I could request appropriate ‘gear.’ I may have to stop by and purchase a shirt."


If you do, Jon, you will be the envy of Tops everywhere.


To continue with today's "whip it" theme...



No, that's not what I meant. Let me try again...



That's better. Quite an impressive feat. And on that note, we say good-bye to 2014. It's been a cracking year.

Hermione, here is wishing you and your family a Good and Happy Healthy New Year 2015. And may all your NEW YEARS resolutions that you wish for ALL COME TRUE. And most of all may your bare bottom, always be warmed by a good spanking from your ever loving husband.

My New Year's resolution (well, one of several) is to visit my local 'sporting' goods store ... and file a field report.

Thanks, my Canadian internet amie, for your guidance when I needed a word of advice, for your reminder about Stan Rogers and for what you do for all of us.

Wishing you a hug and an awesome year to come. Jon
