the daily bour·geois /bo͝orˈZHwä/, 6-11-20

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 dumbrella (and ho-ho! meme), 5-29-20

Mornings north of Ruskin begin on the back porch with a cup of coffee and two cigarettes. We have nice shade from the trees (Hey, you friends!) until the Earth spins to a point when we have no shade but … voila! … we’ve got this handy and dandy umbrella left behind by Ms. Previous…… Continue reading the daily dumbrella (and ho-ho! meme), 5-29-20

the daily felling, 5-26-20

Our neighborhood woke up to these gentlemen buzz-sawing away on a tree across the way. Following modern day journalistic standards, I didn’t bother to find out why they are doing this so I’ll just throw something out there. I’m guessing the tree was a danger to this home. I don’t have the appropriate angle of…… Continue reading the daily felling, 5-26-20

the daily tree hotchpotch and possible plant-related purge depending if i get around to it, 5-8-20

It’s common nowadays for persons in academia who find ancient markings etched upon the walls of pyramids and ziggurats to use them as ‘proof’ that what we think is true today is, in fact, false. Take for instance a few years back back when an ancient Mayan calendar was discovered and translated. It was seen…… Continue reading the daily tree hotchpotch and possible plant-related purge depending if i get around to it, 5-8-20

Not all sports involve arm and leg muscles. Sports also involve the brain which has muscles, right? Let’s look up the term muscle-brain shall we? muscle-brain – A person who actively participates in physical sports, possibly highly skilled in sports, but does not do well in academic activities, like math and science. A large, strong, but inept,…… Continue reading the daily zwischenzug, 4-22-20

the daily he-man, 4-21-20

Okey-k’fokey, let’s see if The Purging Lutheran can post an article which doesn’t turn into a blab-a-thon such as yesterday’s the daily unoriginal content. Yerps! How long-winded was that? This week‘s posts, via unoriginal content, have been dedicated to the American past-times of healthy living and athletic entertainment. Today’s snapshot includes two! types of hobbies…… Continue reading the daily he-man, 4-21-20

the daily walter (and purge!) 4-15-20

[ WARNING: This post contains a graphic act of violent ] The Purging Lutheran has zero idea what kind of article Walter Milano was drawing this illustration for. The assassination seems to be occurring in a North African country, perhaps Algieria. Persistent Reader: How do you figure this? The Purging Lutheran: Well, I noticed that…… Continue reading the daily walter (and purge!) 4-15-20

the daily carnage, 4-9-20

Before anything, a reminder today is Maundy* Thursday. In Act One (Maundy Thursday) Jesus’ actions reveal that discipleship means crossing the boundary from selfishness to servanthood. While the plot against him begins to unfold, Jesus has a meal with his disciples and afterwards washes their feet. The humility and self-denial of the foot-washing  foreshadow the…… Continue reading the daily carnage, 4-9-20

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 12-12-19

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
