Sometime technology can get too ‘-ology’ for The Purging Lutheran. I hads to ask My Sweet Rib what this was b’fore I photo-documented and tossed in the box for Goodwilly. It’s an alarm clock. I mean had I used the process of elimination I would have eventually narrowed it down to that. I might have…… Continue reading the daily purge 1-31-20

Indiana University won it’s latest men’s basketball tournament in 1987. Since then Bobby Knight was booted out, Kelvin Sampson got the bum’s rush for making ‘illegal’ phone calls to recruits (which are legal now in the NCAA), Tom Crean inherited a mess and was unceremoniously dumped and now we have Archie Miller who is having…… Continue reading the daily purge 1-30-20

The Purging Lutheran was graduated out of high school back in 19-aught-75 with an extra half credit to spare. I wasn’t one who cared much for being surrounded by some peeps who just wanted to smack me around. I was maced in the face by a fat pile of goo in junior high school.

The Purging Lutheran isn’t a natural ‘pack rat’ but there have been a few things, mostly newspaper articles like these, which I have held on to for years and years.

My Sweet Rib* puttered through the cabinettes below our bathroom sinks the other day. Among the many items** she found unworthy of keeping were several pill boxes. Getting older is a skill – a delicate ballet of eating poorly, drinking excessively and, eventually, popping pills to reverse the effects of the first two. The top…… Continue reading the daily purge 1-24-20

Through The Purging Lutheran’s excessive photo-fiddling skills I was able to make this magazine basket look like a highly coveted basket which could be used for just about anything. Well, as long as it fits. Your SUV wouldn’t fit in there very well but many items would. Oranges would fit. Grains of sand would fit.…… Continue reading the daily purge 1-23-20
