the daily consumer value store, 6-9-20

Today we go to CVS to pick up my “Whoa there, Hoss!” medication*. But first we need to get there. What happens along the way? Not much. Not much except this sad, droopy tree wilting from the heat. . Before we get out on to the busy street we abandon out rights as gated-community citizens.…… Continue reading the daily consumer value store, 6-9-20

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

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 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

the joe.dirt.mud poke 9-17-19

The first cup of caffè americano in Rome rivals Wally’s.   Lamentations 3:22-24 God’s loyal love couldn’t have run out,     his merciful love couldn’t have dried up. They’re created new every morning.     How great your faithfulness! I’m sticking with God (I say it over and over).     He’s all I’ve got left.

the daily purge 8-13-19

Ittsa teenie, tiny tube filled with metal tools useful for precision work. The Purging Lutheran would be able to use the mini-sized screwdriver to tighten screws holding hinges on my frames. I could righty-tighty and lefty-loosie small screws on any number of small items. What kind of small items could be worked on with the…… Continue reading the daily purge 8-13-19

the purchasing lutheran 7-19-19

Technoworld welcomes The Purging Lutheran to The 21st Century! I rec’d this Smartwatch just yesterday and already it appears I have moved 7.48. 7.48 something. It certainly isn’t miles. I’ve certainly moved more than 7.48 feet and yards. So, 7.48 what? Maybe it’s not even measuring me. Is it measuring itself? I don’t know. Why do…… Continue reading the purchasing lutheran 7-19-19
