"The book invites you to step into a fifty-five year old time capsule, to a simpler time when the misadventures of three young brothers growing up on a small ranch in the 1950's stretch their parent's patience and sanity to the breaking point. Taking place in the shadows of World War II, this tale not only unfolds the amusing and humorous events that led up to the 5 Greatest Spankings, but it conveys a flavorful and reminiscent glimpse of a time gone by, as the tastes and smells of the 50's come rushing back.

One slight disparity existed in our household from other families where the “L” stood for love. Around our place, the most frequently used word beginning with the letter “L” was Lickin...Spankings were typically administered to stationary subjects often bending over. Lickins frequently involved highly mobile or fleeing targets."

So my fellow adult boys and Daddys Who Spank Them, please take a moment, download this book for $4.99 from iTunes or buy it hardcopy from Amazon for $8.99, and review it, so he knows there are TONS of us who want to see more straightforward Spanking nonfiction out there.
“Growing up in the 1950s found me in a place in time and with a cast of characters that required a firm hand that prevented utter chaos.”
Such chaos didn’t just take place inside their Rancho Roberto homestead.
