Happy New Year!!!!



First of all I hope you all had a Merry Christmas.  I was on a cruise face painting over the holiday but no decent cheap internet access–hence why it seemed like I may have disappeared off of the face of the earth.

I have internet but not my regular computer–so I will resume regular blogging in a few days.

Second- I have been nominated for a couple of awards by vagendavixen.wordpress.com and radaronelson .   Thank you, yes I accept them and will do my duties as soon as I get back on track.

Third- I wanted to have completed the Jay Scott Berry Saga by the end of 2012 but no internet for the past 8 days changed that.

What follows in the series is the rest of Back in Los Angeles, Scandal in Malaysia, and What Happens Next?, and NPD.

Then I will blog about my cruise and who I met on the cruise and my time in the Caribbean and in New Orleans.

Until then I am wishing you all a very Happy New Year!!!!!

May 2013 brings us all closer to our dreams and our passions!!!!

I love you all!!!!!!

The Indecent Proposal…..Part Five, Las Vegas


Hmnnn……It had been thirty years since I have been in the same bed with the magician. I knew of his comings and goings via mutual friends, I dragged my then husband to one of his performances and I have always wondered what my life with him would have been like had I said yes to him 30 years ago…and here he was sleeping next to me in my bed.  It was like a dream come true.

And no longer being the shy, innocent virgin I woke him up…….I reached under the blankets and I started to softly stroke him until he was erect and awake.  I surprised him, no I was not that shy innocent girl and I love morning sex…..I love to be held by my lover, to wrap my legs around his body and with a smile on my face say, “good morning.”  And it was a nice morning……

The Indecent Proposal …….Part Four

The hard part of the evening was having to get out of bed, get back into my suit and drive home to Long Beach and spending the evening alone without the love of my life, who had returned after a thirty year absence. I felt as if I was living in a movie…waiting for my fairy tale ending……….

The Indecent Proposal…part three……


He gave me that card, which spoke of our unending love on the morning of  Feb 7, 2012.  That day was filled with one meeting after another starting at 9:30 am and going through 8:00 PM.  We would go back and forth from meetings back to his hotel room to re-group.  After on of the meetings I was sitting/laying down curled up on a sofa type chair exhausted because I had to drive in early morning traffic from Long Beach–and I am so not a morning person.  He suggested that I take a nap on the bed—-that nothing would happen-he wouldn’t try anything.  And he was true to his word.  By the time we came back in the afternoon we were taking a nap together, one of those innocent naps like we had taken together many times before years ago.

Little did I realize that I was being “groomed”.
