Max Flex would be a great name to have. “Max Flex – bodybuilder and spy, at your service!” But the (TM) mark after ‘Max’ has me concerned. The Purging Lutheran is certainly no legal beetle but do the fine folk at meijer own the word ‘max’? If I use it do I owe them a…… Continue reading the daily purge 3-20-18

Matthew 6:26 Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they?  My Sweet Rib and her The Purging Lutheran recently quit trying to keep God’s little winglings deep in noms and…… Continue reading the daily purge 3-19-18

What is The Purging Lutheran giving to our next door neighbor? At first blush it appears to be a jail cell for a peanut butter sandwich. I guess it could be but BEWARE Big Creamy retain the best lawyers in the land. This is why you’ll never see a pb sandwich in the big house.…… Continue reading the daily purge 3-16-18

The Purging Lutheran is the world’s worst pet owner. We buy a pup and all the tools it requires to train, feed and raise a pup and what happens? He ends up becoming a free-range teenager instead of a well-trained adult. Dog pads? Dogs require constant attention. When will the dog need to pee? How…… Continue reading the daily purge 3-15-18

Today is National Pie Day because today’s date is “3-14”. Get it? Pi approximates to 3.14159265359 and on and on and on and so forth. So The Purging Lutheran is purging a pie? Only if it’s a rhubarb pie. My favorite pie is the mighty and wonderful and sinless cherry pie. But do you know where…… Continue reading the daily purge 3-14-18

As hundreds of cat owners have found out over the years, foto-friendly furry felines need to be fooded (semi-)frequently. The Purging Lutheran is one of those cat owners. The great thing about our cats is they let me know when I’m ignoring them. Good! Serves them right for complaining so much. Let ’em wait, sez…… Continue reading the daily purge 3-13-18

The Purging Lutheran revisits the gararge and shelves of unusables, old timers, and undesirables. What could possibly be wrong with 270 feet of trimmer line? Plenty if it’s made of dried, cooked spaghetti. OK, it’s not spaghetti but it behaved as though. Science, on the whole, doesn’t fail or disappoint but this time I am…… Continue reading the daily purge 3-12-18

We sang the “Holy, Holy, Holy” before The Lord’s Prayer. And we chanted the “O, Thou Lamb of God” as we…… Continue reading the view from the pew 3-11-18

There is no photo trickery here.  I used my night-vision I-phone to capture this old printer at rest. The Purging Lutheran had to sneak up on it last evening so it wouldn’t be startled and run off a dozen sheets of blank paper. I’m not sure why My Sweet Rib wants to purge this printer.…… Continue reading the daily purge 3-9-18
