On Being A "Professional" Master/slave

We've never, ever wanted to be mistaken for any of the countless people who claim to be a Master or slave when in reality, they just pretend for money. There's potentially a fine line in other folks' perception, and I've gone to considerable effort to never cross that line. My treasure writes here because she enjoys it, she loves to get and reply to comments and she also does it because I require it. In the beginning, it was a blog, nothing more, nothing less. In the last few years, it has become not only a blog, but also a hub for all of our online activity. Some of that activity is done simply for fun, some of it is to feed some sort of narcissistic need for kudos that I still deny having, and some of it is done to try to supplement our income by sharing our real life with others who might be willing to toss a few bucks our way for a small window into our normal activities. Normal for us but mere fantasies to them, things that they can't get at home or simply things that get their blood flowing south. Like most people, we started out never showing our faces, never being specific about where we live, blah blah blah. One day, I decided that I was tired of acting like I was ashamed of Myself or My girl, just so someone I knew wouldn't find a photo that would make them all butt hurt because of their own insecurities and closed-mindedness. In a very short time, we had started making videos and posting non-anonymous pictures all over the place. Eventually, My girl started doing live cam sessions for cash and it's become a multifaceted "business". That's why we're making this page. I didn't want it on the front page of the blog because this is still her blog, and always will be, but we wanted to add a page for some of the money-making things that we do.

About two years ago, we decided to test the waters with Kindle publishing. For a nominal fee of 99 cents a month, you can get this blog automatically delivered to your Kindle. Unfortunately, this makes it less likely for My girl to get the comments that she so loves, so if you decide to go the Kindle route, please come back here later to leave that comment you were thinking about!

Lately, we've had gentlemen ask if it was possible to buy My treasure's worn stockings. If worn stockings is what you seek, then we are happy to oblige. We've charged very reasonable amounts in the past, and that won't change. Pricing will depend entirely on quantity, color, availability, your location and any other variables or requests. We get her stockings from Europe, and we only order a few times a year, so we may have limited color options at any given time. If you're interested in My girl's worn stockings, or any other requests for that matter, please email her directly at precioustreasure_md@yahoo.com. We've done custom videos and would also be happy to do custom photosets. If it turns you on, and you think we can provide it, please don't hesitate to ask.

About 2 and a half years ago, we also decided to start making videos for sale. We've had a banner on the front page, but we've never really promoted it at all. Well, I'm not really going to promote it too much here either, but if you'd like to check out our clips, you can find them here. You can also find some of them here.

My treasure has also started working as a cam girl on ImLive. There's a banner on the front for this as well, but you can also click here or on the banner below to find her over there or schedule a meeting with her.

Banners here also!

Too Dependent?

Master and i decided to brave the shoppers yesterday. We didn't get an early start because we told His Mom that we'd wait for her to be ready and we'd take her along. Surprisingly both Master's parents went with us for the day and His Mom did really well, she only used a wheel chair for one store. While it was a long day, it was a pretty good day. If anyone lost their patience or got tired, it was me. i could tell that i wasn't behaving well at least i really felt edgy toward the end of the night. It wasn't because of the crowds, i have patience for that, it's always because of communication. i think too much for myself instead of just asking what we'll be doing or where we're going, i 'think' or try to anticipate the next move. While yesterday wasn't as bad in times past, thinking too much or trying to anticipate can get me into a lot of trouble.

Yesterday i was doing some of my own Christmas shopping as well. It's really the only time of year that i handle money on my own. Of course when i was single i took care of my entire life and did just fine but i am out of practice. That's really not the only thing that's difficult though, i am more easily confused now and when i am hurting, like i was terribly yesterday, i am much more easily mixed up and thrown for a loop. Something as simple as a single item purchase is enough to send me into a tail spin. Sound very stupid? Think of how many steps there are in a purchase, now think of it when there are literally hundreds (like there were yesterday) of people in line behind you. We were at best buy and there was a guy directing traffic at the registers. i should NOT have been making a purchase yesterday. i did it, i lived and i made my purchase. i also had Master there to tell me how much my purchase was going to be, to the penny, about 10 minutes before we got to the register. So i had tons of time to get my money ready and hand the guy the cashier the money and move along, with no fuss. Unfortunately, Master had to be there with me, while i bought His present.

i love being completely dependent on Him, knowing that i need Him more than anything in this life. Other times i feel like a complete burden. i know i can do things when i'm not hurting terribly but yesterday i felt really bad. No one was the wiser, it's not like anyone knew i needed help.

Is there ever a point where we become too dependent? Or would you say this is like any relationship or marriage. Where you hold each other up when the other one needs it once in a while? It's not like this is an every day occurrence although it has happened more than once and i am able to function on my own and shop when i am feeling well. i can and do pay a couple bills and make business phone calls or deal with professional situations when Master instructs me to do so. But when i do have to completely rely on Him, that's it, it's all or nothing with me and i struggle with that at times. i am dependent on Him in our daily life, for sure and that's comfortable for us. It's just when i lose everything for a time, that's when the guilt seems to set in.

It's just something i've thought of over the years and i know that Master would say i could never be too dependent but it's always been something i've wondered about.

Peace to you and yours,

i am third

i mentioned in my post over the weekend that we were meeting a couple for dinner. While we talked for literally four hours and if i'm not mistaken, closed the restaurant down, i took one main thing away from our evening. i would like to try to share that here.

i left there asking myself, "Am i selfless enough to call myself a slave?".

Am i? Really? How much time in the day do i spend on me? my thoughts, my actions, my dreams, my ideals, my hopes, my work, my focus, where is it? Honestly how would i ever really know unless i kept track and then it would be foiled by the act of keeping track.

The only way to truly know if you're selfless enough is to open your heart and soul and ask yourself. Take a good long look at who you are and another way, if you keep a blog is read back through your blog. How much time do we spend talking about us and what we want vs. our Master's and everyone else. Honestly, i haven't done that, i'm afraid to. i'm afraid to know how much time i've spent complaining about my headaches or not feeling well. i'm scared to know just how often i've said, "i don't wanna do.... blah blah blah". Yes it's my blog it should be about me, it should be about the real me, my honest feelings, i just want my honest feelings to be less about me and more about others. It's a goal. =)

So where do i start to fix it? i'm not going to lament on where i've been or whoa is me, i'm a terrible slave i'm so selfish, i'm not going to go back and read my blog posts. What i AM going to do is start fresh. i know that my focus should be on everyone else if i truly have a servants heart. Him, everyone else, then me. "i am third". Where my God fits in there is between He and i, of course.

i am going to fail a lot i guess the important thing here is, i want to try hard to focus more on Him, everyone else, then me.

i am third.

Overflowing!

This week has been a long week, it seems. i cleaned Master's Mom and Dad's house and wow it really needed it. Since Master's Mom has been home from the nursing home she really can't get around very well so it just gets messy. Even when her foot was broken she still straightened things up but now that she's using a walker or cane she doesn't get up and about at all. i think she 'could' but she's not. His Dad does whatever she tells him to do and that means she's just having everyone do everything for her. If she needs things i'm not the first one to offer to get it for her, i'll wait and see if she'll get up and get it or ask. She needs the exercise for strengthening and can certainly do it when she's not too tired.

Right now there's been no resolution with Master's family so at this point we're not having a Thanksgiving Dinner. Master's sister hasn't said a word about it to His Mom and it would seem that she's okay with not getting together. i however don't understand it really. It's different for me, i have the experience of knowing what it's like to not have parents and not to have family around and i'm not saying they aren't thankful. What i am saying is that you don't know what you've got until it's gone, you cannot know the experience of the loss and wanting until you don't have it. What i wouldn't give to have a holiday with my entire family, escapes me. i'll just say that. i hope for His Mom's sake that something can be worked out but she is also being stubborn here as well. She says that if everyone isn't getting together, she's not doing anything. Hmm OK then.

On to happier things. Tonight Master and i are going out to dinner with some folks from the local munch group. This has been in the works for months now, we met through collarme.com and we've been meaning to get together for a long time. We've only just now gotten our act together to meet up. Neither Master nor i are super great in large crowds so 1-1 meetings are way better for us. Should be a good time!

i have too many clothes. So i know a lot of women have a lot of clothes and maybe i don't have more than most, but it seems to me that i have a lot. Master hung an 11 foot clothing rod in the basement that we're sort of sharing, i would say right now 2/3 is mine. Then the entire walk in closet is mine with the exception of Master's 2 1/2 foot section, maybe. In the spare bedroom we have another nice closet, that isn't full but one section is entirely full and one only has a few pieces. my dresser only has two drawers that are full.

i will put all that into perspective though. That is AFTER we sent three boxes to Goodwill and threw away several trash bags of clothes and emptied a dresser and 1/2. There is another huge mound of clothing in the hall way to send to Goodwill yet. Many of those clothes came from Goodwill, now they are going right back there! =) There are also two more large boxes of clothing to go through in the basement, i forgot about those, oy vey. i have too many clothes.

In order to get more use out of the clothes that i do have, Master put up that rod in the basement so everything can actually be seen and spread out. Otherwise things are squished together and of no use to me. i was happy to give things away that i can't use and even more happy to have the space. i can't wait until we do the same with the shoes! He's going to build another shoe rack so the better part of the shoes will have their own home as well! i get into a rut with shoes wearing the same ones over and over because i hate searching!

Part of being a lady for Master is pleasing Him in what i wear each day. He really gets tired of repetition and i'm totally guilty of that. i wear the same shoes (that's the big one) or similar skirt because they are jammed into a small space. Which is crazy because i have a nice size closet. Once this project is complete i will have no excuse, it will all be on me. Yikes!

Speaking clothing i need to choose an outfit for this evening, i better scoot!

Peace to you and yours,

VBA!

i just got my email for the day and my very first reaction was, hrmm... is this a virus, but i look before i leap! So i asked Master then looked it up!! =)

Virtual Blogger Award! Now THAT sounds fun!

Thank you very much to Pepper for passing this award along to me!

Okay here are the rules!


1. Thank the award-giver and link back to them in your post. Done and done! But just for good measure, thank you Pepper!!

2. Share 7 things about yourself.

3. Pass this award along to 15 blogs you enjoy reading.

4. Contact your chosen bloggers to let them know about the award.


Okay, i'll start at the beginning. Seven things about myself:

1) i'm short, but i wish i were shorter! i've always wanted to be under 5' tall.

2) i like pink! i mean a lot. For more than a couple years i wore primarily pink clothing and even to this day usually without even trying i have something pink on nearly every day.

3) i love to have dessert, but i don't need much. It can be something as little as an Andes Mint, i just need something to finish off dinner.

4) The smell of a hot iron and the steam is comforting and soothing to me, therefore i love to iron. i could stand at the ironing board for hours and just zone out and be completely content in my work.

5) i have well over 150 pairs of heels.

6) i don't remember the last time i wore a pair of pants, i believe it's been a few years but i'm not sure when or what the occasion was.

7) This blog has been an incredible gift to me, the people that i've come to know through their blogs and personally are a joy that i am very grateful for.

Now i have to choose only 15 blogs that i enjoy reading! Ugh! Okay here are only 15 and in no particular order:

1) Yes Master - i have been reading Starla for years and years, she's one of the very first journals i ever read. Sadly, i don't believe her journal is available to the public anymore but i had to list her, just the same.

2) BDSM is love - luna is perhaps the only blogger Master and i have ever actually met in person. She and her Master live quite close to us. luna is well respected in the blogging community and the respect is well earned.

3) Owned, Collered, Loved - Bre is fast becoming one of my very favorite young subbie bloggers! i know, i know i said i wouldn't play favorites, but she has won my heart as she is so honest about her struggles and so happy with each victory!

4) The Sub-Mission - "Mew" as i love to call her, is super sexy, super cute and awesome! We have lots in common with her and her Master and i wish we lived closer!!

5) Kittens Paw Prints in Slavery - i am totally enthralled with this blogger and addicted to her writing! She writes so it feels like you can actually "hear" her talking as you read her blog. When she's tired you can hear it and when she's happy, you can hear that too. Love her!

6) This girl's weblog - There's really so much to say but if you've never been to this blog, go! They are dynamic, exciting and all things BDSM! i stumbled upon this blog with Master's help a couple of years ago and it's really not to be missed!

7) Sake of Sanity - i have been reading this journal what seems like forever. i have followed her through some good times and some tough times. No matter what's going on in her life you can always count on her working really hard at being the best mom she knows how to be and that's always evident in her posts. She's also been consistent in her desire to become a good sub to the right person as well but she makes it clear that her kids are her priority.
`
8) Naida's Submissive Journey - i have loved reading Naida's journal for a while now. She's funny and just like the rest of us, human. i especially enjoy how very honest she is with us, her readers, she really holds nothing back.

9) Finding my submission - This is an incredibly titillating blog! It should tell you something that she was on the Top 100 Sex Bloggers of 2011! The list just came out today and she was on it! (more on that later!)

10) Curiosity Saved This Kitty - i haven't been reading this journal all that long, but everything i read and every time i go back i am more and more hooked. Anastassia is honest and loving when she totally pours out her heart and soul in her journal. She's really a joy to read!

11) His rose - Rose and i actually have a lot in common and that's one of the reasons i love reading her blog. No matter that she's half my age i learn from her all the time. It shows no matter how long one has been in this lifestyle, you can easily teach and learn from each other if you're open to it! Rose is such a treat to read!

12) Lessons Learned - The very first journal i ever read. Lisa has always been what i thought of when i thought of a slave. Lisa was "it". Today her journal entries are few and far between and their lifestyle has changed dramatically but Lisa writes, lives and breathes for no one but her Master, Frank. She cares what no one thinks but her Master and she only writes because he demands it. That having been said, she is unbelievable and there is none other like her. She's quirky and exciting and twisted and if you have a few thousand hours you didn't know what to do with, her journal is worth every single second of it. i have no idea how much of it is still available on the web, but she's been writing for, well, ever. In the early years she wrote a lot because i believe Frank made her and she had more time, now she spends every waking moment farming and loving it, in their words, it's paradise.

13) a submissive's musings - libby is a blast to read! She's candid and upfront about everything she believes in! She's a slave living with her husband and three kids and her blog is anything but boring! There are struggles and many triumphs and as a reader you're drawn in like one of the family very quickly. i love to read this blog!

14) Molly's Daily Kiss - This blog has it all! Tons of pictures, writing that makes your toes curl and she's unabashedly sexy! Molly is spectacular!

15) A hidden slave - Her name really says a lot about her. She tends to hide her slave-like self behind a tough exterior, or so it might seem. After reading her for a while, i have come to thoroughly enjoy her posts!

There are so many blogs out there that i wish i had time to read or that i wish i even knew about! This is a great way to share some of our very favorites, old and new!

Thank you again Pepper for the fun!

Your latest photo s are interesting. Two bras, no panties, gartered stockings with pierced nipples and labia, You must really raise some eyebrows when you go to the doctor.

i've been dressing like that for a couple years or more. All but the no panties thing, that is fairly new. Typically when i go to the doctor it's well thought out. If i know they are going to need to look at my upper torso, i'll just pull down my foundation garment when they leave the room and remove my bra. i have come to a point in my life where i am completely comfortable dressing in this manner. If someone else is uncomfortable with the way i'm dressed, they can ask me about it or be willing to accept me. The only thing that's ever given me pause were the piercings. The x-ray techs have always been very understanding and helpful though!

One time i needed a chest x-ray and they said they could work around the nipple piercings but they would prefer i take off the eternity collar. i just stood there and stared at them like a deer in the headlights. i said that i was so sorry but it locked on and i always left the key at home. i've never been quite so unprepared for a doctor appointment and i should have know this time, as ill as i was that there would be a chest x-ray, that was really my fault. The women at the desk couldn't even begin to imagine what i was talking about but after close examination of the collar themselves they accepted my explanation. Really, why would i lie? Since that time, Master and i have been much better prepared for things such as this! =)

Regarding clothing and undergarments, i am the first to admit that there was a long adjustment period in which i was self conscience. Even though my underthings were entirely covered up, i knew i was different from everyone else in the area. We live in a farming community where nearly everyone is more comfortable in blue jeans or sweat pants. It's almost unreasonable to think that a woman would willingly wear the kind of clothing that i wear more over, enjoy it? <gasp> It wasn't an overnight transformation, it took a while to get here and i'll certainly say that once i started wearing the all in one and stockings, i really found my sea legs! Very few people find it believable that i am just as comfortable in my clothing as they are in theirs. i can say for certain that jeans are less comfortable in many cases than skirts, for sure because a skirt, unless it's an ill fitting one, doesn't cut into ones waist, hips and legs. To each their own, for sure! i am very glad to be where, who, whose and what i am today!

Thank you so much for the question! =)

Ask me anything

A Beautiful Poem From The Master

I thought I'd post here, the lovely vanilla birthday poem that I wrote for you elsewhere. It's too beautiful not to be shared with the masses.


This is the 10th birthday we've shared together
This line would be easier if your name was Heather
I could freak people out and talk about leather
Or simply say that we're birds of a feather
You are the other pea in my pod
You are the perfect weird to my odd
Even though you're a bit of a clod
You are always very well shod
You always make sure that no one is cold
You promised to wipe my butt when I'm old
You make sure the shower has minimal mold
You are the one that I always want to hold
You picked me to love and for that I am glad
You strike me quite often and for that I am sad
I'd take you out tonight and make your day rad
If my tooth didn't hurt so fucking bad

/bow

Bits and Pieces

Yesterday was a nice day. i was actually expecting Master to be in pain and He woke up with almost no pain at all and it remained constant throughout the whole day. Even though we weren't able to do anything special like go out for dinner with Master's family like we usually do, we had a nice quiet day at home. We spent the day doing some cleaning inside and a little bit of outside work as well. It was a lovely day outside and we even took a short walk.

When Master was sitting at His computer for a few minutes i decided that i didn't care if we couldn't have a party, i was going to have a cake no matter what! So i made myself a birthday cake! haha! Master came into the kitchen when i was pouring it into the pan and asked me what the heck i was doing and i told Him exactly that! i wanted cake for my birthday so i was making one! lolol! Pathetic huh? =) It wasn't even that good, i think the frosting was a little old, even though it doesn't expire until June of 2012! Oh well, at least we had cake.

Last night Master and i just had our usual night of TV and lounging and i wouldn't have had it any other way. He was quite tentative all night, just hoping that the pain wouldn't reoccur and although it's sore, there's no actual pain like there was.

We just got a call from Master's Mom, she was in the ER this am, released now but having a little trouble since she's been out of the nursing home. i have been a little worried about her since she got out of the nursing home. It's such a huge adjustment and some people have a hard time making that transition from total care to living on their own again. No matter how much i cautioned or tried to warn her to take it easy, it has done absolutely no good. In this area i go completely unheard, now i know what people mean when they say, it's like standing in the middle of the room screaming and no one even looks up.

i truly want the very best for her and i've offered more than once to help her with her bandages and she did ask for help with her medicine only after she realized she was making big mistakes. i promised myself i wouldn't push things on her and make sure she knew that we were there for her any time she needs us. That's all we can do really.

i hope everyone is having a good Monday. Master and i are off to get some work done.

Peace to you and yours,

Dentists and Dresses

Master and i had an unexpected trip on Friday. He has had a very sore tooth and we were able to get an appointment at the college of dentistry but we had to be there in an hour and 1/2. We live an hour away. Yikes! So i flew around the house and we got there about 15 minutes late. i called of course and they were very understanding. It didn't really matter, everyone that goes to that clinic waits to see the doctors and students and it's really worth it, they do amazing work. We think? Master's tooth had a very large cavity that had fallen off and gradually gotten worse. The worse part, it was a front tooth, not one you can just pull. When the student was done, i can honestly say i've never seen a better filling. It looked like a fake tooth, it was perfect.

Master was actually able to eat less than an hour after we left the dentist because the student was so good with the novacaine also. The even better part, the pain was gone. We spent the rest of the day messing around and decided we'd clean on Saturday because we were exhausted. We also decided we would skip my birthday dinner for Saturday and just do it another day, all we've done is run around and we'll do it soon, but not this weekend. i am SO glad we didn't plan a day out for yesterday! Yesterday morning Master was sitting at His computer and He said "I've got bad news, My tooth hurts". From the look on His face it was easy to see that it wasn't just an ache either.

Suffice it to say that i have never seen Master in the kind of pain that He was in yesterday. The only thing that worked to relieve the pain was very cold water or ice on the tooth. The very second that water warmed up, the pain was back and He was in excruciating pain. With Master i don't use the term excruciating lightly. i have never ever seen Him in this kind of pain, ever. i had pain medicine from a tooth extraction that i had a few years ago, He took some of that, it didn't touch it. By late last night He had taken pain meds that i can't even take and i'm used to taking medicine and nothing was even dulling the pain.

i think He finally fell asleep at 5am or a little later and He's still sleeping, thankfully. i have never in my life felt so helpless. We had to work yesterday and it took twice as long as it normally did because of pain fighting efforts. There was so little i was able to do to help, it was just miserable for Him. The only conclusion that we came to was that when they did a test on His tooth to check if it was dead or not, the student went very quickly on that tooth. Master thinks that He might have answered the question wrong because He wasn't given enough time to make up His mind. The tooth is most likely dying or dead now. He may need a root canal which would be a real shame to mess up that beautiful new tooth but if that's what needs to happen then that's what we'll do.

On a side note, the college of dentistry is amazing. The students are terrific and spend loads of time with you. The work they do is top notch and it's obvious because the patients are all very happy when they leave and they are full up! Another huge perk is the price that they charged was a tiny fraction of what our dentist would have charged. If you have one near you, it might be an option if you don't have insurance.

So after Master and i were done with the dentist we went to this consignment shop, it's huge and sorta fun. We've been on the look out lately for dresses. In the past couple months i have gotten a few dresses from the clearance racks from summer. Just like anything else, you have to know when to buy and where to look. The dresses i've gotten are very nice quality some are $40 dresses that i've picked up for $9 or so. Others are $100 that we've paid $20. The summer clearance racks are pretty well picked through or gone now so we decided to broaden our search.

The consignment shop was a bust when it came to dresses. So is Goodwill really. You just don't see that many dresses, anywhere to be honest. Skirts are fairly plentiful but dresses are either party dresses or they don't exist. You just don't see daily wear dresses out there anymore. The most ironic store out there is Dress Barn. Have you ever seen a dress in Dress Barn? i don't recall seeing dresses in Dress Barn. Party Dresses maybe but not like an every day dress. They are just not out there anymore. i can check e-bay but people know how hard nice dresses are to come by, so they charge for them. If you know of a good source for quality dresses, i would love to check it out.

i hope everyone is having a good weekend.

Peace to you and yours,

Happy Anniversary Master!!!

Master and i celebrated our 8 year Wedding Anniversary this past Tuesday, November 1st. It's almost impossible to believe that we've been married that long and on the other hand i can scarcely remember a time when i wasn't His. The mind is funny that way i suppose.

i remember events of my life before Him of course but day to day living is a blur, how did i act and how did i function without His rules and constant control? i know i did fine and i know i was able to maintain a perfectly normal life, but it seems so far away, so very distant. Something i never want to feel again.

This Anniversary was on a day when Master had a doctor appointment out of town, so we needed to clear the entire day anyway. We ended up having a really nice day of just browsing and shopping for early Christmas presents and not feeling rushed like we have been just about every other time we've been out lately. It felt amazing to actually walk through a store and not feel like we had to hurry for the first time in a long time!

As my birthday falls within the same week as our Anniversary we usually do one or the other dinner very low key. Master asked me what i wanted to do and i said i really didn't care, for all i cared we could go to McDonalds. After lots of "I'm not taking you to McDonalds for our Anniversary!!!..." We went to McDonalds! hahaha. It was just the easiest thing to do and by that time we really were in a hurry because we had sauntered around the whole day, we had two more stores to get to before 9pm. As it turned out, it wasn't the best choice but not because of the food.

(This story is horrifying, skip to the end if you're easily upset)

Master and i were getting into our car and we heard two very distinct booms or what i thought were explosions. i knew they were very close and i turned to look to my right. Immediately i saw an enormous fire ball. i unbuckled my seat belt and said to Master to get out of the car, i had no idea how close it really was. Turned out it was much further than i thought. As i crested the small hill the sight i saw was the most horrible sight i have ever seen in person. There was a semi trailer skidding down the Interstate in a ball of sparks and fire on it's side. i thought it stopped in the center median, i was wrong it landed in it's own lane. my very first thought was, there is no way that man just lived through that explosion. i turned to Master and said those exact words. Master just stood silently as He tried to call 911, no one answered. We figured so many people were trying to get through that they were inundated with calls, or at least that was our hope as to why they weren't answering.

i stood there just hoping and praying that we might see paramedics pull away from the wreckage but i never saw that happen. We later read that it took fire fighters over 90 minutes to find him. The papers said that the driver hit the cement median, that's really all the more information that has been offered.

Why did i share this here? We hear all the time that life is short, don't take anything or anyone for granted. i don't live by those scare tactics. This post is meant to scare no one all i would like to say is live for the moment and be nice to each other. i can't tell you how many times a day i smile at people when i'm out and about and get a grumpy look back or how many times Master might need to get over into another lane and no one will let Him get over. Really? It's true that a nice smile can make someone's day or letting someone in a long line of traffic might help them get to that job interview on time.

Peace and blessings to you and yours,
