Oh, NOW I get it lol! Yep, that one sailed over my head first time. Gosh, it was hand-slaps only for us - no implements. Although we were good as gold obvs. I just read the comments and I’d forgotten that people across the pond use the word ‘spank’ for smacking kids. In Britain, the word is reserved for, er, fifty shades of grey scenarios! Anyway congratulations on POTD. Ming the glare of the spotlight on that scalp :-)

Maureen, this is a great sauce with so few ingredients! Love the title and the eleven perfectly chosen words. My friend's mom used hot wheels track on him and his brothers. Youch! Loved this, and big congrats on POTD ~ John

Ouch!! Being spanked with a Wooden Spoon. Had my share of spankings, with the belt. Kids need discipline indeed. Cute and clever Maureen. Congratulations on Poem of the Day. :) Brandy

I've put in two comments (nice ones) and they flew away. Anyway, it looks like many of us have something in common, but thank goodness we've grown past it. Congratulations to you!
