The first picture was taken a decade back - perhaps at the peak of our collection. We have been downsizing ever since.
From left to right
The homemade Black Paddle. Southern pine, light and stings like a hornet. Mine
A perverted kitchen utensil. Works great for OTK on bottom and thighs. Retired.
A gift, It was heavy and thudy, but one lass picked it every time. Retired.
Homemade red oak paddle. It was Bacall’s favorite to use on me. Out of favor.
A souvenir paddle. Not really useful, very sharp edges. Retired
A hand carved spoon made from Arkansas cherry wood that was a gift. Guaranteed to get anyone’s attention promptly. It comes out for Christmas.
A handmade round paddle also made from cherry.
The Principal’s paddle. One of the first paddles I made. Has some thud and a lot of sting. Mine
A kitchen pervertable with an ergonomic handle. Retired
A flexible rubber ruler. Wraps evenly around bottoms and legs. Retired
What Ronnie calls the Bogey paddle. Light and a little stingy. Bacall's favorite.
A Fli-back paddle painted pink. Lost
Two Fli-back paddles glued together. Bacall gave it to me our first Christmas. She broke it on me and I glued a second to it. Stings like fire. Ours on occasion.
A long handled spoon. Lost
The Sheriff’s paddle. A friend gave this to her boy friend. He used it a few times on her and then on Bacall. It broke on the first swing. Bacall was so pleased. I repaired it. Looks mean, but it’s not. Retired
On the brass tray.
Another souvenir paddle. Not really useful. Retired.
A Lexan paddle. It was a gift and never “worked” for us. Re-gifted.
These were her favorite things only a few years ago. Only the Bogey paddle remains. Classic case of women changing their minds.
