the daily retirement health-care system, 7-1-20

This is a sight no one wants to see anywhere. I’ve noticed the county ambulance come to our neighborhood three times. Under the circumstances with living in an area where the youngest residents are 55 years old I’d thought I’d see more of these. Then Susan reminded me where we live there is a volunteer…… Continue reading the daily retirement health-care system, 7-1-20

the daily new bloodline and used scootabout, 5-21-20

    Introducing Mei! “How can we live without our lives? How will we know it’s us without our past?” […] How if you wake up in the night and know -and know the willow tree’s not there? Can you live without the willow tree? Well, no, you can’t. The willow tree is you” ―…… Continue reading the daily new bloodline and used scootabout, 5-21-20

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 dunce, 3-3-20

Heavy sigh. After a month away from home and daily purges, I returned to work/therapy and posted what I thought was a Black & Decker coffeemaker but instead, according to Marta, was actually a Black & Decker juicer. When Susan put it out on the dining room table to be sent to Goodwill I looked at…… Continue reading the daily dunce, 3-3-20

the daily florida post-vacation action report, 2-28-20

As Susan and I finish the month of February down here it’s time to look back and consider what we’ve gotten ourselves into. *She was able to find a fine condo which checks off the boxes of what she wanted. It’s not too big but has the necessary rooms to flop about in. *The road…… Continue reading the daily florida post-vacation action report, 2-28-20

the daily lazy, kashmir solidarity day

We are ported in St. Tom today. This is a view of the bay where the ship is hitched. Today’s adventure is riding in a catamaran at sunset. The boat circled above is a catamaran* but I’m not sure if it is the catamaran we’ll be on. I’m hoping we’ll be pulling wheelies and trying…… Continue reading the daily lazy, kashmir solidarity day

the daily purge 1-22-20

The Purging Lutheran is going through my books to donate away and I see that I have a lot of these devotional books. I worked with Miss Maureen and Miss Kelly with the four year olds at my church preschool. Four year olds are the greatest … if they’re on your side otherwise ya gotta ‘duck…… Continue reading the daily purge 1-22-20

the daily purge 1-9-20

Part 1. The Appeal of Mass Movements I want to be part of a group because I desire change. Part 2. The Potential Converts I want to be part of this group because someone else is ‘giving me the business’. Part 3. United Action and Self-Sacrifice I believe my ‘self’ to be unimportant. All for…… Continue reading the daily purge 1-9-20

the papal poke 9-16-19

Here’s looking at you, tourista! Matthew 16:17,18 Jesus came back, “God bless you, Simon, son of Jonah! You didn’t get that answer out of books or from teachers. My Father in heaven, God himself, let you in on this secret of who I really am. And now I’m going to tell you who you are,…… Continue reading the papal poke 9-16-19
