2002 – Jezebel – 2020

Two girls in the big city – Straight Outta Catlinburg.   . Aladdin Sane (1913–1938–197?) Watching him dash away, swinging an old bouquet – dead roses Sake and strange divine Uh-h-h-uh-h-uh you’ll make it Passionate bright young things, takes him away to war – don’t fake it Saddening glissando strings Uh-h-h-uh-h-uh – you’ll make it…… Continue reading 2002 – Jezebel – 2020

the daily clean close, 3-30-20

What better reason is there to clean the home than when the notary public comes over to have us sign papers to finish buying a condo in Florida? Never mind we cannot go there for a extra month at least. At least we are rollin’ with ‘the big boys’, throwing our money around like so…… Continue reading the daily clean close, 3-30-20

the daily borentine, 3-27-20

The wind isn’t even blowing. (( sigh )) It’s Day-Who-Knows-How-Many? in the household. Aleksandrs is up in his room. Susan is poking on her I-Pad with Kaden SuperPup at her side. I’m doing the ‘scroll-tap, scroll-tap, scroll-tap’ on Twitter. The coffeemaker and the Keurig are both doing double duty. The (gas) fireplace is on and its…… Continue reading the daily borentine, 3-27-20

the daily f. b. humphrey, 3-26-20

  [ Ed. note: If I had any shame at all I’d simply post a purge of some shoestrings I tossed out in the garbage the other day]   The Purging Lutheran (me) achieved some mild success with yesterday’s post, “the daily purge. j. o’rourke, 3-25-20” so what better way to sell-out for more clicks…… Continue reading the daily f. b. humphrey, 3-26-20

the daily purge. j. o’rourke 3-25-20

Well, this is a purge but The Purging Lutheran isn’t going to put a lot of effort into it. I am relying on my “highlight – copy – paste” skill to think-and-do for me. I bought this book long ago (a LONG time ago), read it but forgot most of what’s in it. P.J. O’Rourke…… Continue reading the daily purge. j. o’rourke 3-25-20

the daily science experiment, 3-24-20

Long ago Somebody came up with the idea of taking a couple hydrogen atoms and an atom of oxygen, connected* them and *POOF!* it became a water molecule. Fresh water is great for drinking, mixing with Kool Aid, brushing teeth, making ice cubes and, if you want, steam. Homer Simpson took this a step further…… Continue reading the daily science experiment, 3-24-20

the daily enough, 3-23-20

In these uncertain times there is one thing certain – Campbells Cream of Celery Soup will never sell out. Poor ‘C of C’, you’re great for recipes but are forced to sit at the back of the bus when it comes to being lunchtime goo. Susan and I toddled out to Big Box Food this…… Continue reading the daily enough, 3-23-20

the daily snorentine, 3-20-20

  My daughter, Marta, has been observing the universal quarantine while living in The City of Big Shoulders. Her cat, Jezebel, has adopted her own version of the quarantine she has claimed as her own, – ‘snorentine’. Cats are pretty smart people. Let’s all follow her example. Thank you, Marta and Jezebel, for showing us…… Continue reading the daily snorentine, 3-20-20

the daily cross (part two), 3-19-20

Me, day four of the national lockdown.   Now, more crosses on the wall. Susan bought this cross for me when she was in Seville, Spain. Did she buy it from a barber? I doubt it but you never know if a barber might be working in a trinket shop to earn a few extra…… Continue reading the daily cross (part two), 3-19-20

the daily cross, 3-18-20

As long as I’m sitting here staring at the walls I might as well show you one of the walls I’m staring at. These are crosses and Jesus-related pictures I have gathered over the decades. Some have been picked up at trinket shops, used item stores, received as gifts, ones which have been in the…… Continue reading the daily cross, 3-18-20
