More trip talk
Colonial Williamsburg is one of my favorite places. It is beautiful, peaceful and interesting. I love to go into the different craft shops. Besides the shoe maker we visited the gunsmith, the printer, the silver smith, the cabinet maker, the blacksmith, the saddle maker and of course a stop by the bakery.
The weather made our trip even more special since Eva and Adam were there from the land of ice and snow. Suddenly they were surrounded by flowers and warm breezes. We could walk around without jackets and the guys wore shorts. It was all part of my overall plan to get them to move south!
I just love being with them because we can relax and talk about everything! We talk about regular stuff work, kids, pets – the same kind of thing you discuss with any of your friends. But it is so relaxing to be able to discuss spanking and tease about it. For one thing Adam kept accusing me of trying to steal the beautiful soft leather straps they used to block off areas of the exhibits. It was a pretty good idea! Being around Eva and Adam is relaxing for Nick too he seems to open up and tease more. It all just makes for a great atmosphere.
Meal times tended to be a lot of fun. One night Nick had us in stitches. Nick is a fairly reserved guy – very funny but usually it is a dry sense of humor. He is less likely to fall into the crude humor that Eva and I thrive on. But one night at supper he began telling us about going to the grocery to buy ginger. The check out lady was very enthusiastic about her love of ginger.
“Oh this looks like a good piece. I just love ginger, it has so many uses!” Nick said he was able to keep a straight face and just let her ramble. He did mention that he was glad I was not with him as I would have been blushing and laughing the whole time. Well we were laughing at the table but still maintaining some decorum. When Nick said with all appearance of seriousness “I just kept wondering what I was going to say when she asked me what I was going to put it in?” Alright forget decorum! But at least we didn’t get thrown out!
