Really? This is why dinosaurs had to die? Buried deep in the Earth, squished and transformed into that mysterious elixir called petroleum*, coaxed to the surface through an oil rig, made into various combustible fuels, hard plastic forks and this rubberized floor runner. Oh, the chair counts, also, but it’s not being purged. Yet. Why…… Continue reading the daily purge 10-29-18

Being a responsible web-blobber, The Purging Lutheran does my best to study up on items I’m unknowledgeable about. This being one of The Lad’s games I am not familiar with how it is played though I do know it is a ‘shoot ’em up’ game. It includes vehicles, pistols, rifles, explosives, and other traditional shooter…… Continue reading the daily purge 10-26-18

the daily purge, a Chicago epilogue, and a short note where evil hangs out 9-10-18

The population is at war with itself using the internet as an electronic machete. It didn’t always used to be that way. Before electricity, weapons included grunts, rocks and sticks. Flintlocks were followed by The Industrial Revolution which gave us tanks and nuclear arms*. Our son, The Lad, had an interest in military weapons hence…… Continue reading the daily purge, a Chicago epilogue, and a short note where evil hangs out 9-10-18

It’s National Friday the 13th Day here on Gatewick Avenue. In honor of this bless-ed secular holiday The Purging Lutheran is running a contest. If you can guess, correctly, how many birdseed seeds are in this bucket, you win a free t-shirt with a fancy-dan TPL signature. In case of a tie, contestants will be…… Continue reading the daily purge 4-13-18

Ants are orderly. The Boy Scouts of America are orderly. Medical orderlies are orderly. Synchronized swimmers are orderly. High school hall monitors are orderly. Mathematics are orderly. The U.S. military is orderly. What’s not orderly? Silverware! When spoons, forks and knives get together they behave like cats in a dog pound. The Purging Lutheran has…… Continue reading the daily purge 4-6-18

”Woblongs blong but they dont blong wob!” * It can’t be a real woblong (an oblong, plastic throwing toy). It can’t even be a false woblong (a twisted piece of metal which, if thrown, could cause a serious injury). While fooding the cats this morning in the basement, The Purging Lutheran eyeballed this … it. I…… Continue reading the daily purge 3-23-18

What is The Purging Lutheran giving to our next door neighbor? At first blush it appears to be a jail cell for a peanut butter sandwich. I guess it could be but BEWARE Big Creamy retain the best lawyers in the land. This is why you’ll never see a pb sandwich in the big house.…… Continue reading the daily purge 3-16-18

As hundreds of cat owners have found out over the years, foto-friendly furry felines need to be fooded (semi-)frequently. The Purging Lutheran is one of those cat owners. The great thing about our cats is they let me know when I’m ignoring them. Good! Serves them right for complaining so much. Let ’em wait, sez…… Continue reading the daily purge 3-13-18
