the daily purge Reformation Day

500 years ago this evening, Martin Luther nailed a list of 95 talking points he wanted to have debates over with the leaders of the Catholic Church. They never saw the light of the next day as these were taken done, run to the local Gutenburg Print and Kopy Kaffee-Shoppe, and passed out to the…… Continue reading the daily purge Reformation Day

Our Marta is purging a perty, perty belt pelted with shiny dibdabs and diamonds bought from wholesalers located in Munich, Tel Aviv and Rome. Unimpressed reader: Really? Really? I mean, really? Your purge is based on a throne of lies. The Purging Lutheran: I’ve been caught! Run! TPL will check with Our Miss Heidi first…… Continue reading the daily purge 10-30-17

[ Just in case you are rolling out of bed, here is Luther’s Morning Prayer. Remember, in a world dictated by relativism, morning can be any time you want. ] I thank You, my heavenly Father, through Jesus Christ, Your dear Son, that You have kept me this night from all harm and danger; and…… Continue reading the view from the pew 10-28-17

What’s smaller than a sock? A footie. If you’ve ever been in a hospital to have your spleen removed (trust me, you don’t want your spleen removed anywhere BUT a hospital), at some time a nurse has helped you waddle to the potty while you’re attached to a drip bag. To keep you from slipping…… Continue reading the daily purge 10-27-17

Before there was GoogleMaps, the computer application which shows a user how to get from anywhere to anythere, there was GoogleSocks. GoogleSocks was an early map-and-sock combination allowing the wearer to have comfy toes as well as showing you the way to San José. The Purging Lutheran doesn’t know where in America My Marta’s socks…… Continue reading the daily purge 10-26-17

The Purging Lutheran, having gone through Our Marta’s tub-o-get-rid-ofs, found these three gloves, two white, one black. What can you derive from this? Any reasonable person would conclude that OM has three hands, two of them ‘good’ hands and one of them sinister and ‘evil’. Fortunately for her and the rest of us most persons…… Continue reading the daily purge 10-25-17

Purging My Marta’s ‘grey/gray tub-o-stuff’ seemed like it was going to take months to go through, categorize, document and photograph, and purge. The Purging Lutheran didn’t care for the idea of doing this to every pair of socks so I combined them into a group of socks. A ‘group’? There are terms that identify large…… Continue reading the daily purge 10-24-17

My Sweet Rib tried to throw this visitor’s map of Madrid (Spain) without taking a proper photograph of it for purgeing purposes. The Purging Lutheran thinks it would be silly to claim to purge something without any visual evidence of it. Sure, I could boast I’m finally getting rid of my Dodge Challenger, the one…… Continue reading the daily purge 10-23-17

God save Latvia. Sunday worship was at the Latvian Church’s English-language service with Macitajs Gunars Lazdinš presiding. Matthew 22:15-22 Paying the Imperial Tax to Caesar Then the Pharisees went out and laid plans to trap him in his words. They sent their disciples to him along with the Herodians. “Teacher,” they said, “we know that…… Continue reading the view from the pew 10-22-17

The Purging Lutheran’s daughter, My Marta, bought and wore these ‘around the home’ slips (short for ‘slippers’). Sometimes the most decorative foot-fillers are the least decorated. These informal evening-wears were at one time a nice, stain-less white. It looks like MM might have spilled coffee on her heels at some time. You can’t change chaos…… Continue reading the daily purge 10-20-17
