Just in case anyone believes I’ve grown soft and round while living in a retirement village, you are w-rong, w-rong, w-rong! I totally embarrassed Susan by going out in public with a toothpaste stain on my shirt. Don’t ever say I’m not ‘a man of the public’. I can ‘slob it up’ as well as…… Continue reading the daily bour·geois /bo͝orˈZHwä/, 6-11-20

the daily purge (hunting style) 5-6-20

  The Purging Lutheran worked at Borders Bookshop* long ago. A fellow worker handed me a book saying it was ‘a great read’**. I think it was called ‘Winter’ maybe? Or not. It was about a Texan couple who decide to move to Alaska for the winter and write about there experiences. They chopped wood,…… Continue reading the daily purge (hunting style) 5-6-20

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.

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

Prologue: I have only a high school education. This is a neck lace My Sweet Rib gave up some time ago and The Purging Lutheran is fairly certain I know the reason why. It’s a pretty hefty feller and I can believe she would struggle standing up straight and walking in a straight line. You…… Continue reading the daily purge 12-12-19

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
