I have been a wife and mother for over twenty years. Now I am becoming my husband's lover, too.
We owe it all to my fellow bloggers who gave me the courage to come out to my husband as a spanko.
I do feel like this is a New Beginning for us.

Living in Mayberry and other stuff

I often feel like I live in Mayberry. You know, with Andy, Opie and Aunt Bee. But I was very happy the other day to realize that Mollie’s little town is even more like it. She called me the other day as she got off school. I asked how her day had gone and she said, “Fine, the police only had to talk to me once.”



It seems that on routine patrol on Mollie’s street an officer saw her front door standing wide open, but her car was gone. The policeman stopped and checked behind the house but didn’t go inside the fence, where the two dogs were, to go up to look in the house.

He then called the school where Mollie works (we don’t know how he knew where she worked.) The conversation with the school secretary went something like this:

Officer: Hello, I need to speak with one of your teachers. I don’t know her name but she lives on In the middle of Nowhere Avenue. 

Sect: Hmm… I’m not sure who that is.

Officer: She’s the one with the golden retriever.

Sect: Oh! You’re talking about Maggie, that’s Mollie’s dog. I’ll ring her room.


They talked for a minute and Mollie realized that she had just pushed the door closed and then later put the dogs out the other door and forgot to firmly close and lock the front door. One of the dogs had evidently jumped on the door opening it. Mollie was able to run home, make a quick check through the house – the officer stayed while she checked she and was back at her school in  exactly six minutes. She said she was grateful that the police were so observant and she was most grateful that he didn’t go up to the open door and look in. She says that there was no doubt he would have assumed someone had gone in and ransacked the place! Unfortunately, she keeps house just like her mother.

As a mother I’m most grateful that the police notice such things and that he went to the trouble to track her down and got the situation corrected. Living in Mayberry isn’t so bad.

We had a small craft show in our town this weekend and I had a booth with my book marks and also a few of my Cassie paperbacks. I think I gained some real author credentials. When I would mention to folks my age and older that I wrote books, they would ask, 

“Can I get them at Barnes and Noble?”

“Umm… no, only on line.”

“But I can order the book on Amazon?”

“Well, no it’s an ebook. You know, for your Kindle.”

The next thing you know I was getting a half smile with an, “Oh, that’s nice.”

When they saw real book, I could tell they were truly impressed and I sold seven! Five to people I knew and two to a total stranger. Now that was a really great feeling.

One last thing – I was interviewed over at Becoming His – Beautifully His. My thanks to Jlynne. I think she did a lovely job. Please go by if you get the chance. Thanks!

  1. Hi PK,

    Oh gosh, that was so good of the officer to look out for Mollie like that. I love how Maggie provided the link to establishing which teacher owned the house.

    The craft fair sounds awesome. Congrats on the sales :) I saw the post over at Jlynne's. Awesome interview :)

    Hugs

  2. What a great story about Mollie! So good to hear that things like that still happen! And so cute that Maggie is so well known!
    I'm so happy that you were able to show off your beautiful books! It's so good that you can find a whole new audience to fall in love with Cassie and Tom!
    I'm off to read that interview.

  3. Was the officer's name Barney? Glad that tale had a happy Mayberry ending, PK.

    Good for you. Your books deserve to meet a bigger audience. Proud of you!

    1. Hope he had more sense than Barney! But it was a happy ending. Most of those that bought them are church friends - might be interesting.

    Having grown up in a "Mayberry", you have more than one Mother, and so best remember this. I have been spanked by other Mothers, and worse when I got home another spanking was waiting. It was accepted. I married a local girl, and found out quickly that my Mother-in-law and my Wife were now going to be my Mommy and Mother Jackson. I did something stupid a month into our marriage, my wife informed me that the Mommie was going to make her presents. I was soon over her lap and that hairbrush got my attention. The first time my Mother-in-law decided I needed a Talking To as she calls it was a Saturday night, visiting her, my behavior was not acceptable and I learned that her spankings were worse. Church the next day, squirming, could not help it, smiles from other ladies in church. Jack

      Very much so, growing up in a town of “Mother’s” you learn to behave or accept sitting is not comfortable. Older women spank harder, longer and insures the lesson is learned.

  6. Gotta love small towns, PK ... what a great little story about Mollie. When we first moved here from the big city over 10 yrs ago, we had a little back and forth contest going where we would look for signature small town 'things' to finish the sentence 'you know you're living in a small town when ...' :>))

    Congrats on the book sales! ... and the interview with Jlynne ... you did great! ... nj ... xx

    1. When I was a kid Mom used to say no one in our little town used their turn signal because everyone knew where everyone else was going anyway!

      Thanks for checking out the interview.

  7. Well, I don’t know who Andy, Opie and Aunt Bee are but I’m glad Mollie lives in a place where the police look out for residents. Bobbies on the beat are a rarity in the UK these days.
    Congratulations on selling real books, that must have been really satisfying.

    1. Mayberry, the home of those three, was a TV show from my childhood, set in my state and still in reruns today - the quintessential small southern town.

    1. Our town and Mollie's it really a lot like this.

      I do love having the paperbacks.

  9. I love this story, PK! I enjoy hearing about my fellow bloggers real lives outside of the ttwd realm, too. I also like to write such things myself sometimes. Molly's town sounds quaint. Congrats on selling your paperback versions of your book. Some people really do like to have the kind to hold in their hand and flip the pages for real. I wonder how many of the women who bought your book just might fall asleep tonight wondering what it would be like to have some spanking fun with their husbands! Fun post, PK! I enjoyed it! Hugs, Windy
