Complete the Caption

On this American Thanksgiving Day, we remember the pilgrims who sailed from England to begin a new life in the American colonies. Their lives were governed by strict rules, and violators could expect to be dealt with. Here we see a group going into a primitive building. What lies in store for them inside?

Complete the caption by leaving a comment and I will publish your proclamations in an upcoming post. To all my American friends, have a happy Thanksgiving, and enjoy your turkey and football.
From Hermione's Heart

Nothing to worry about, dear. This Thanksgiving will be so delicious! First we'll have roasted turkey, then I'll roast your tushy.

Happy Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving Hermione!

Lincoln made the day a national holiday in the first year of the Civil War. In his declaration, it had nothing to do with food, kumbaya with natives or Pilgrims. A little known fact, now back to over-eating.

Come on Martha, you know the tradition, we roast the turkey and then all the women get spanked.

And this how the tradition of the Woodshed began

Little known fact - The first Thanksgiving Day feast started with a community "rump roast" and ended with "just desserts".

The first Thanksgiving perhaps?
And certainly not the last.
Happy Thanksgiving America!

Its a little known fact, that the Puritans celebrated the First Thanksgiving by taking their naughty wives, daughters, grandmothers, into a woodshed, upturned their clothes, took down their bloomers, and spanked their bare bottoms, blushingly red. One must admit, Hermione, its a wonderful dream. What would be the chances if this dream was true.

"I don't care what the other wives say! I expect you to behave yourself during dinner! Or when we get home, I will add to the already burning bottom that you have presently!"

Thanks Hermione! :) Many hugs,

<3 Katie

"I'm really looking forward to giving Ruth the first ever paddling in Wellbeloved, the Pastor said to the Elder, as they walked into the Community Hall."

This may not mean much to you, but I wrote a short story to a theme about early an American settlement called Wellbeloved, set by the late Alex Birch's on his blog.
It tries to be reasonably historically accurate and even be almost credible, and purports to portray the first ever paddling in New England.
The picture immediately reminded me of my story called "Wellbeloved" which is freely available to read on LSF.
Apologies for the plug.

Somebody out there is set on defaming American men, me thinks. Since when does it take two men to take one woman for a well deserved trip to the woodshed?

Or are you trying to suggest that American women are so tough that it takes two strapping men to complete one strapping?


I'd respond with some good ribald Canadian jokes but ... there aren't any, are there?

Thanks for the Thanksgiving wishes, Hermione, and I trust yours was excellent a short while ago.

I don’t know what is dear. All I know is they call it a WAL-MART.

I hope that Hettie James doesn’t make those gosh-awful deviled eggs again this year. I had gas for a week!

Whose bright idea was to build the town hall so far out in the woods? I am freezing my ass off and I can’t feel my feet.

We have to invest in at least a couple more televisions. Walking halfway up a mountain to watch the Super Bowl sucks!

Hey Prudence…How about we sneak out to the woodshed. We are 5000ft up the mountain. Have you ever heard of the “Mile High Club?”

Oh Crap…..We walked a half mile up this fricken freezing mountain, in the snow and I just realized we left the paper plates in the buggy!

Kingspan said...

Of course I'm certain, my dear. He said we were all to come to the meeting house to give spanks.
