the daily kitchen-sink, 6-24-20

This our pool where we get wet, talk to total strangers and smear sunscreen. . If you had permission to levitate above our pool it would resemble that toy-of-the-century last year, the fidget spinner. Ironically, spinning your body in the pool is frowned upon as it usually leads to pukies. . We have a wonderful…… Continue reading the daily kitchen-sink, 6-24-20

the daily ANTifa, 6-4-20

Don’t these (ants) ever give up? – Bill Kilgore, Apocalypse Now Lt. Colonel Kilgore is responding to those North Vietnamese who keep fighting against a superior American military force. This is a hill where a colony of local fire ants live just a few feet from our gararge. It is about 8” long by 6”…… Continue reading the daily ANTifa, 6-4-20

the daily ‘a is for this‘ ‘b is for that’ and so on, 4-27-20

  At the end of any of these please feel free to add the phrase “due to Covid 19”. A is for Amazon, our source for talcum powder but not disinfectant wipes, toilet paper, gloves and masks – due to Covid-19 (see how that works?) B is for ‘Birx’, an American physician who is working on The Wuhan…… Continue reading the daily ‘a is for this‘ ‘b is for that’ and so on, 4-27-20

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 hoo-hah, 2-18-20 (with emergency purge!)

There’s not much going on today besides going to the bank to fill out the loan application for Casa Willow, so what to do, what to do? Let’s stare out the window of a moving vehicle and see what’s in Florida. To begin with we have a POPEYES chicken shack on the side of the highway. Or…… Continue reading the daily hoo-hah, 2-18-20 (with emergency purge!)

the daily purge 1-21-20

It’s back to The Lad’s games. The Purging Lutheran thought I was done with them but – yoiks and away! -here we are vis yet another. This time it’s Fallout 3. What more can be said about these games where the protagonist is dressed to the hilt in metal and steel? How about this – Why…… Continue reading the daily purge 1-21-20

the daily purge 1-10-20

The Purging Lutheran shall purge two books with one brick today. My father was a carpenter for his entire life and because of that some people always assumed his ‘measure twice, cut once’ DNA supply-sided its way down to me. Not so, Persistent Reader! My father trusted me to sweep the shop, throw bits and…… Continue reading the daily purge 1-10-20

the daily purge 12-4-19

It has been years since The Purging Lutheran read this book. Malcolm is a pretty cool guy. Blink is an earlier book of his which explains how we make quick judgments on the the things we see and read. The best I remember we take about 7/10ths of a second to decide if we like…… Continue reading the daily purge 12-4-19

the daily galosh 11-26-19

People who bite the hand that feeds them usually lick the boot that kicks them. Eric Hoffer Jeremiah 9:3 And they bend their tongues like their bow for lies: but they are not valiant for the truth on the earth… One danger of secret sin is that a man cannot commit it without being by…… Continue reading the daily galosh 11-26-19

the daily purge 11-13-19

Spoiler warning: The Purging Lutheran spoils everything. I haven’t read this book, which was released in 19-aught-86, but My Sweet Rib read it recently. It’s give-or-take a billion pages filled with details which could never make it into the film (unless you enjoy billion-minute films). It’s common knowledge that films of books tend to stray…… Continue reading the daily purge 11-13-19
