The Purging Lutheran’s wife, My Sweet Rib, retires in a week or so. After that she will binge out on tossing needless items from the house. Now I just have to justify my existence in my own home. Think, pooh bear, think! Until then I must rely on my newest bag of My Marta’s Martables.…… Continue reading the daily purge 12-14-17

Ordinarily Friday the 13th comes on a Friday but for a burp in the calendar it falls on today, Wednesday. No one knows what causes this to happen. Is it because of solar flares? School fundraisers? The jet stream? One theory holds that the Chinese, because they live under one time zone, stomp their feet…… Continue reading the daily purge 12-13-17

It appears on an on-time basis on screens. The order of service is nearly the same as Holy Cross Lutheran Church (HCLC) in…… Continue reading the view from the pew 12-10-17

Which is correct? Please choose one: ==> This shirt was given as a ‘white elephant’ gift among coworkers at a locally owned restaurant (Fridays are ‘curry goat night’). ==> Paralegals who work for the law firm, The Law Offices of Katz, Katz & Katz, LLP, are required to wear these shirts for two years after…… Continue reading the daily purge 12-8-17

OK, take two. My apologies but The Supreme Court voted 9-0 against the 99%ers living a carefree lifestyle. Their motto: Back to work, you! Years ago, maybe in the ‘80s(?) some weisenheimer fashion designer thought it would be a good idea to mash ultra-casual design with formal wear. Maybe it was him or maybe it…… Continue reading the daily purge 12-7-17
