Thanks for all the kind comments. I am glad you all missed me: it's nice to feel like my contribution was wanted.
I have a question for you: I have read about the effect of stinging nettles on a bare bottom before and/or after spanking. I would like to try this on Evan sometime. But I don't know where to find stinging nettles. Where might one find them in the New England / Boston area? I gather from my searches on the web that this is a native plant around here, but I don't know where to find it. It's spring now, so it might be available sometime soon, if I knew where to look.
Thanks for your help,
