Saturday Spanking



My son’s wedding was wonderful! Actually the most enjoyable wedding I’ve ever attended. I love being a mother-in-law.
Now I’m looking forward to getting back to real life, reading, writing and anticipating my next big event – my December 11th book release! In this snippet Cassie tells of a time years ago when she and Tom and several other couples attended a convention together. Without mentioning it to the fellows, who were busy with meetings and golf, the girls decide to drive down to Mexico for a little shopping and sightseeing. During lunch at a small Mexican café, the ladies began chatting with some local boys who were anxious to show them some wonderful shops off the beaten path. Arriving with these young men, in a somewhat rundown section of town, Cassie and the others were a bit dubious.

There were two scantily clad young women in a doorway staring at us curiously. I turned back to our young tour guides questioningly, and as I did one pulled out a knife and demanded our purses. We stood paralyzed in fear as they grabbed our bags, leaped into our car and disappeared.
It had happened so fast it didn’t seem real. We were clutching one another in pure panic, were they coming back? Should we run? Run where?
“Are you okay?” Sue shakily asked the group. Neither boy had touched us, but I felt frightened and violated. In those first few minutes we hugged, patted and assured one another that everything would be fine, then the realization finally sunk in: we were in a foreign country, we had no car, we had no money, we had no identification, and our husbands had no idea where we were – foolishly, I thought it couldn’t get any worse.


Meet Cassie, a former wild child, who meets her match, and creates the match of a lifetime. Cassie has survived emotionally distant parents and an abusive marriage. Widowed young, with plenty of money, she turns her energies to partying twenty-four/seven, until Tom spots her at a party. To nearly all who know her now, Cassie is a vivacious, sweet southern lady, who is the epitome of grace and proper behavior. Look a tiny bit closer and you’ll see Cassie has another side – the one whose language could make a sailor blush as she drinks him under the table. Thanks to her loving husband Tom, who never hesitates to put Cassie over his knee when she strays too far from his view of ladylike behavior, few people other than close old friends know this side of Cassie exists.

Cassie shares many stories of their early marriage, as she tried to adjust to Tom’s belief in the power of the hairbrush. Although Cassie agrees in theory that Tom is the head of their home, she spends much of her time doing exactly what she wants and hoping Tom won’t catch on. Over thirty years later, she still does what she wants and Tom still catches on.

Cassie still doesn’t always act like the perfect lady and doesn’t always manage to follow Tom’s rules. She sneaks off with friends to visit an ‘adult’ toy store and she has begun talking to ‘strangers’ online and blogging about the private life she and Tom share, knowing full well if Tom ever does find out she’ll be sitting sensitively for days to come.

Cassie wouldn’t change her life for anything. As she says, “There are two things I want everyone to take away from our stories. First there is nothing wrong with an old fashioned marriage where the husband guides and protects the wife. There is nothing wrong with him being in charge. There is nothing wrong with him giving the occasional spanking to make sure his wife is fully aware of who is in charge. And, there is certainly nothing wrong with the wife trying to get away with as much as possible.

Second, and most important, I hope our stories convey that love and passion are not the sole property of the young. Love and passion grows and changes with age. While aging may bring on challenges – the love and passion between two people only grows stronger.

      Honestly Cassie never plans on getting in trouble. She's just a natural.

  4. They better just stay where they are. When they get home- well they will wish they were still in a foreign country when their husbands lay hands or brushes to there fair bottoms.

      Sadly it got worse way before the husbands even got wind of it. It was a very rough day for Cassie.

  5. Silly girls, of course things can get worse! But seriously, a roasting on the behind from a loving husband wouldn't be anywhere nearly as terrifying as a mugging and being stranded. Nice set up, PK.

      You're right, things can always get worse - and they did.

    1. Amen, Ruth. Tom likes knowing where Cassie is even when she's around home. Leaving the country without telling him… yeah, you can imagine.

  7. Oh no! Okay, I'm hooked. Honey, not only is this not the worst it can get, just wait until your husband gets you home where you are going to be anything but safe! I'm putting this on my TWF list. When does it come out, do you know yet?

    1. Minelle,
      Most of the time she is convinced it's all Sue's fault - and usually it is (it was her idea to go to Mexico), but somehow Tom never takes this as a valid excuse.

  10. Cassie sure does find herself in lots of tricky situations. But it's never dull!

    1. Celeste, you are exactly right. I believe Tom's said that very thing.

  11. December 11th is coming very soon! So exciting and nerve-wracking for you. Your first book, for real. :)

  12. Yikes! Now that is a scary scenario. Unfortunately, when their husbands find out what happened, they're going to be in an even worse situation. Not good. Not good at all. But a great snippet. Can't wait until the 11th.

    1. Thanks Kathryn,
      It is a double whammy. And this one is based on something that really happened, not counting the spanking that is to come.

  13. So happy for your son!

    Re the snippet: very scary. Being in a foreign country adds to the sense of helplessness.

    1. Thanks Cara. I agree about the foreign country - not speaking the language alone would scare me to death.

  14. I'd rather get spanked than be stranded like that. What else is new, huh? Nice snippet!

      My parent were the globe trotters in my family, I'm more the home body and fears of things like this is part of the reason.
