Birthday gifts

Our whole trip was fantastic. Although we do have time together at home every day Tom is a very busy man. To go away and just concentrate on each other is heaven for me. You all may be tired of hearing it but I have to keep saying it. I love Tom so much! To wake up in the mornings with Tom looking at me, to have him reach over and touch my face. Some mornings we would make love without saying a word. Other times we would cuddle and talk on and on.

Each morning we were alone Tom would bring me breakfast in bed and sometimes feed me. I sorry I know how spoiled that make me sound but Tom seems to enjoy treating me this way and what kind of wife would I be to spoil his fun. We went sight seeing during the day and dined in the very best restaurants in the evening. In between we did everything you can imagine! And that did include many fun and erotic spankings!!

But the gifts! My wonderful gifts! One of my very favorite gifts was a ring. It is beautiful! Tom designed it and had it made for me and I just love it!! He also gave me some beautiful lingerie. It surely does look lovely on the floor! One of my most fun gifts was a beautiful box with 4 matching silk scarves. They were very pretty but I asked him why he had gotten all the same color. As he took one and gently tied it around my wrist he said “Sometimes this is the only way I can keep you exactly where I want you”. He didn’t have to worry about me trying to escape that day. I was perfectly content to say exactly where I was!

But did I get what I was asking for and he kept saying no? Well, yes and no. My dream gift was a laptop. I would like to be able to take you all with me to other parts of my house and possible even off with me sometimes but Tom has NO desire for me to have more access to the computer. So … I did not get one for my birthday. But Tom got one for himself! I get to borrow it when the lord and master says I may! Oh I am just fussing! He is letting me use it until I make him mad about something.

I assumed I had all my birthday gifts when several days later as we were getting ready to go out Tom asked me casually “How would you feel about moving?” I felt like he had hit me with a sledge hammer! “WHAT?” I was not happy! “No I do not want to move,” I began “we’ve moved enough for several live times. I love where we live! I love my houses! I love our church! Have you taken a job? You never said a word! Tom so help me if you have taken a job without telling me I’m going to wear you out!”

How I have to stop saying things like that. I am always scared Tom is going to hurt himself laughing! So I was standing there, hands on my hips, loaded for bear and he was laughing at me! I nearly bopped him one as he came over and scooped my off my feet and sat me on his lap. He said “Stop Cassie, you’re scaring me! I bought Richard’s house.” I stopped sputtering and stared at him. “You bought the house on the river?! My house that I always wanted!! You are not serious!” It seems he was! This is the house we borrowed when our friends were here this summer – when Sue and I had our little boat excursion. We have borrowed the house often from our friend and I love the place. The house is fine for 2 people but will also be able to handle guest. At this moment the remodeling has already begun. Tom is having the 2 bedrooms at one end of the house turned into a master suite. I get to redecorate any way I want to!!

The yard is beautiful too. There are old trees with Spanish moss that blows lazily in the breeze. There is ever a small ‘beach’ area for wading or swimming. And the boat comes with the house!! Richard and his wife have bought a place near there children and grandchildren. There son has a boat so they sold this one to Tom. I am so excited I am about to pop! I grew up on this river and the time I spent near it and on it are my happiest childhood memories.

Right now we are not planning to move there full time but I have a feeling that we might when we get it fixed up the way we want it. I do love our house but I love this one too and as Tom and I spend this next year working on it we might just decide to live there year round. We’ll see, and it is only about 35 minutes from our church so that’s not a problem either.

Tom did one more thing for me. Over the next few days as we talked about the house I asked him if I could take the lap top there. He sighed and said “Cassie you really are addicted to that computer aren’t you?” You know it is strange. Neither Tom nor I have ever been jealous of other people during our marriage. Through all our trials and tribulations that has just never been an issue. But in a way he is jealous of all of you. Not individually but this blogging thing and the people I have met here do take much of my thought and time. Tom has never, ever competed with anyone or anything for my attention until maybe now. And of course he doesn’t have to now, I love you all but I will drop the computer like a hot potato if I can spend time with Tom. Yet he knows how much I enjoy being on here.

So he just nodded at me and said “Yes I already have the internet hooked up for you. I knew you would want to talk to your friends”. Do you see how pampered I am. Even though he does not completely approve of all my time on line he puts up with it because he knows I love it so.

So that is what I got for my birthday and anniversary this year. And what did I give Tom? Let me assure you he got exactly what he wanted!

I'm Home!!

Are you trying to blind me or give me a heart attack? We were gone a few days and come home to find the place totally redecorated! New paint, new furniture, and WHO put in the pool?? Slip ‘n slides all over the yard, scooters parked all over the place (I’m loving that). And the underwear! Girl did none of you make it home with your drawers?? Bikini panties, thongs and strangely enough, one pair of granny panties tossed around. I am not asking who belongs to what. What happens at Cassie’s stays at Cassie’s!!

You don’t know how sorry I am to have missed all the fun (actually I was having plenty of my own). But you are all always welcomed here anytime. I don’t know who stocked the freezers – Theresa, Sar, Lessa or one of the dozens that dropped by. But everything looks delicious and I thank you.

If we party any more I will have to say girls you are just going to have to learn to spank each other! You are wearing my poor brother out! Thank goodness David, Dragon and Nick were there to help. But with the greedy girls that I know were here it’s a wonder these poor fellow can lift an arm. Thank goodness they were well fed.

A few points I want to make here. We do NOT have a mirror over the bed, but it is a wonderful idea!! I was ROFL reading about sliding down the banister! I have been paddled on numerous occasions for doing that very thing and yet I still do it occasionally mostly just to make Tom crazy (it’s so easy!) And lastly Lilly although I appreciate the thought more than I can say, the brush you found must have been a decoy. The real one was with us as usual. And yes it did make one unnecessary appearance on the trip. But it wasn’t MY fault. There were circumstances beyond my control, sort of. More about that later.

In all seriousness you all can’t begin to know what this means to me. You don’t know what you all mean to me. I will never be able to explain it to you either. It’s just too much. So thank you so very much for allowing me into your lives and for sharing your lives with me.

We are home and we aren’t. We will be in and out for a while. I am anxious to tell you about my trip. And I can’t wait to tell you all about my birthday present. I thought Tom out did himself last year! But this year was even better and I am so excited!!!

Party at Cassie's

Hey everybody! PK here! I broke into Cassie’s place to get ready for the party. Please feel free to come and go as we get all set up. I have been looking around – this is one beautiful house!! Leave the food in the kitchen or on the dinning room table. Paul come on in and find you a good chair. Don’t worry we will give you some breaks, maybe!

Everyone have a good time, I’ll see you later!

C.C here:: I just spotted someone in the driveway taking pictures!

Click on the picture to see what 'she' is photographing!

67 + 37 = 104! Oh my!

I have been having a good time this past week! We are getting ready for a trip! My birthday and our anniversary are this month. And Tom is taking me on a trip! How different this is from last year! For long time readers you might remember that I was getting ready to tell Tom that I had been blogging for quite a while. I knew he was going to be upset and I was RIGHT!! It was a tense, tough time for me. But my Tom, my wonderful Tom finally listened to me. I might have been sitting sensitive for a day or two but it could not have turned out better in the long run! I do love this man!!!

I have been hinting, asking, begging for a certain birthday gift. Tom always says ‘NO’. He says I don’t need it and he doesn’t want me to have it. I haven’t given up hope. He has been known to surprise me!

Most of you are much younger than I am and I am so grateful that you have accepted me as one of you and let me come out here and play. What a wide circle of diverse friends I have made here. My blogger friends are so dear to me, Mthc and David and PK have also email often lately to keep my spirits up and they really have done so. They laugh at me kindly about my mothering ways but they see that I need to mother a bit. There is something else I found out here, something I never thought I would have. How many people get a big brother when they are in their 60’s? Paul is the closes to me in age. He has been so kind and supportive since the first word I wrote. He never hesitated to side with Tom, NEVER! LOL! But he and Tom are very much alike that I cherish his comments both as what dear Paul thinks and because it is as the closestest to what Tom might say. This family out here is very dear to me!

We will be gone for at least 2 weeks, possible longer but I WILL check in whenever I can. We often stay somewhere where I can at least check my email and sometime sneak and look at a blog or two if Tom is not paying attention! So I will not be disappearing this year! We will probably be leaving Thursday or Friday.

I will be 67 on Saturday. Sixty-seven! How in the world did that happen? Now that age is all well and good, but this birthday spanking is nothing to sneeze at! Not to mention 37 more for our anniversary later in the week!! If nothing else I want to show all you children that love does not diminish with age. We love each other so much more now that we did the day we were married. I know Tom is old fashion and some of you probably think he is too controlling but he is everything I have ever wanted. I did not realize when we married that spanking would be so prevalent I our marriage but by far most of them are loving and caring and exactly what I need. I am the luckiest lady you will ever meet!

Blogging Meme

I just loved this meme from PK and others. I would love to hear everyone's answers.

1. What was the first blog that you regularly read?

Like so many of you I found Bonnie first. You cannot imagine how excited I was. I had only had a computer a few weeks and I barely knew how to email. But when I stumbled across Bonnie’s site I felt I had found a home.

2. Do you remember the first" blogger" that you had an E-Mail Relationship with?

I emailed Bonnie not long after I started reading. I wasn’t even sure she was a real person. She was so kind and gracious. But after Bonnie posted my first story Tiggr was the first other than Bonnie that I talked to. She and Bonnie were both so kind and encouarging. Tiggr and I continues to email regularly until she stopped blogging.

3. Why did you create your blog?

After reading some of the wonderful stories out here I was dying to tell some of mine. They were real yet I had no one to tell them too. I wasn’t looking to start a blog. I was just thrilled that Bonnie was willing to let me share a story or two on her site. Actually I was really satisified that Bonnie was willing to read a story from a stranger who had never written a word in her life.

Now once Tiggr did get me set up with my site I loved it! I know many of you say you just blog for your own pleasure but quite frankly I blog for the comments, the contacts. The friends and family I have made here are as special and dear to me as any I have made anywhere.

4. When was your first post, and who was your first commenter?

I guess I have 2 first posts. Bonnie posted my first story on MBS on June 7, 2006. There were 6 comments, Caia, Padme, Damnation’ Celler, Tiggr and my brother Paul!

When I first wrote on my own site it was June 25. The fine people who came by then were Tiggr, Bonnie, Tom (not my Tom!), Jeanmarie, Jemima and Copper.

5. Are there blogs that you absolutely have to visit daily?

Oh yes, ten or fifteen at least. Sometimes my time is short so I don’t comment as much as I would like to. But I do my reading!!

6. Is your Blog categorized?..(I.E. Comedy, Literary, Personal Angst, Etc.)

I guess it’s a lot about spanking and sex but I am mostly just talking about my life and some of my stories from the past.

7. Do you see an end to your blogging some day?

Only if I have to. Even if I don’t post as much as I used to I do love it! Who knows how long I can keep it up. But if you guys will come by and speak to me I will keep on blogging!

8. What are you wearing right this very minute?

I have no idea why you would want to know but I have on the black corset with red lace and fishnets that PK was looking for the other night!
