Finding My Way






Growing old is the pits.  It's not what I imagined - not even a little bit.

The alternative (they tell me) is worse

BUT the alternative is what looms in front of me.

There is a small part of me that wants to "wear purple"  - to become eccentric - to be the old lady everyone whispers about...................... 

I do NOT want to "go gently into that good night"...........

BUT am struggling to find the way.............

I am 80 years old and have been a 'spanko ' for 70 wonderful years. On occasions I spank a naughty woman, and at my age I still love to see their bare bottoms and hand spank them blushing red. Even sometimes cane them. Which in my humble opinion keeps me YOUNG AT HEART.

I plan to be the eccentric old lady that everyone whispers about. I say explore your purple side. You can't know for sure what you want unless you try it. Put on your "artiste" Ms. Photographer, and go!

I wear purple every day and I'm "just" 47 and proud to be slightly eccentric already! My M is 57 so we might squeak in to the older couple label too, perhaps.
