Mommy's hard loving hand, Church, Bible Classes and Southern traditions !...cartoon 1

Veronica, I really love this first picture: that sure is lil' Ol' me over my religious mommmy's knee feeling that special skincare treatment that naughty girls gotten to feel (on their bare botties, naturally) in a normal context of loving family life !
Love the cutey, green cotton shorts and lil' white cotton underwear duly adjusted to expose he fairy-soft, unprotected target for mommy's retribution and "tickle-tail". Yes, my mom had a halo, Veronica especially when punishing us !

Growing up in early 1960s Georgia, a whooping on a bare backside was a normal, routine procedure for naughty daughters in my community; and spanking was closely connected to the Church, social mores and family values. The Christian values of "spare the rod spoil the child" were constantly quoted, especially by my mom at Church group coffee mornings (!!), and by our elderly pious neighbors who advocated CP for my sister and me at every turn. Our mother always used a "proper rod" - a nasty, whippy-thin cane - on our bare bums and not her hand. So we sure feared a smacked bottom from mom. Oh my ! Sadly :-(

Veronica, I just accepted the link between corporal punishment and religion as a child. It was just the way things were done. But I have always been fascinated with the link as part of Southern values and society. I always wondered why God had blessed us lil' Southern belles with a bunch of delicate, sensitive skin receptors in our fairy-soft, pudgy white botties ha-ha !:-)
Oh my ! Why am I laughing already ? Boo-Hoo :-(
Divine design already Veronica ? Divine design !
