National Handcuff Day Has Come and Gone

I Bet You Missed This Kinky Holiday Too?

File this under, "Better late than never".  Alternately, it could just as easily be filed as "Just wait 'till next year!"
February 20, 2014 should have been a special day for kinksters all across our fair land.  That was the official observance of National Handcuff Day.
I wouldn't kid about such a thing.  Really, I wouldn't.  Seriously.  I mean, it's for real.  (At least as real as a holiday sponsored by a handcuff manufacturer and a handcuff retailer can be made to look.)
In fact, February 20, 2014 wasn't the first National Handcuff Day, nor was it the second.  Last Thursday's Holiday was actually the 4th annual National Handcuff Day!
Who'd have thought, right?
According to the website (told you I wasn't completely spoofing) the holiday was created because:
There are National days for donuts, potato chips, silence, clam chowder, and the Tooth Fairy, so why not a National Handcuff Day? Handcuffs are a necessity in a modern society. Police, jails, prisons, and other law enforcement agencies could not function without the modern handcuff. They are easy to use, reusable, and inexpensive. Also, there are many collectors who try to preserve the history of handcuffs, and escape artists have entertained people for over 100 years trying to escape from them.
I guess that makes sense to me. How about you?  I wasn't aware of donuts day, nor potato chips day.  Today, Feburary 28, is actually National Tooth Fairy Day.  Although I'm told some celebrate that particular Holiday on August 22nd.  I'm not sure what the mix up there, maybe Tinkerbelle had issues with the United Brotherhood of Fairies or something, but I'm sure there's a story.
When they talk about there being a Clam Chowder day, I can't help myself from asking:  Do they mean New England Clam Chowder or Manhattan Clam Chowder?  I don't know the answer, but would hope there's a day for each. (I used to be a chef, what can I say?)
National Handcuff Day's website goes on to say:
It's on this date in 1912 that the US Patent office issued patent 1,017,955 to George A. Carney for a "swinging bow ratchet - type" adjustable handcuff. Before that handcuffs were heavy and bulky and there was no standard style. Carney's design was always ready and was light weight compared to older models. Since that patent, most modern handcuffs around the world have been made with the same swing through design, with minor modifications. The Carney Patent was bought by The Peerless Handcuff Company of Springfield, Mass., and the first models were manufactured for them by Smith & Wesson.
Peerless Handcuff Company is so serious about National Handcuff Day that they sponsor a giveaway contest associated with the day.  How cool is that?  
Like I said at the top, file this under better late than never, and get ready for next year!

sexy cigar art for Sinful Sunday

I was under the weather earlier today, so I asked Serafina to fill in at where she created a great post for Sinful Sunday - Restrained and Waiting at the Kinky Kabin.

So, I found myself feeling better tonight, with this wonderful cigar play image.  I could not bear just sitting on it for next week's Sinful Sunday.  I hope it's not an egregious offense for a couple to post two different images for a single Sinful Sunday, at least the posts are at two different domains ...

Valentine Musings . . .

A friend of mine, a truly sweet and adorable girl btw, wrote yesterday at FetLife bragging about her Daddy.
Tulips in the living, bath and bedroom. A cute card for his babygirl, a meaningful card for his partner and a single chocolate.
I was honestly impressed . . .

My response?
That's so beautiful! Now I feel like a slacker for only getting my slave two teddy bears and a three-way . . .
