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 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.

Part 1. The Appeal of Mass Movements I want to be part of a group because I desire change. Part 2.

The Purging Lutheran doesn’t play modern video games but I don’t have to have a smidgeon of involvement to be allowed to complain about them. My video game past includes Pong, Asteroids, and The Sims. Pong was fun until the ball went too fast. Asteroids was fun until the asteroids went too fast. The Sims was…… Continue reading the daily purge 8-15-19

My Sweet Rib and The Purging Lutheran used to have ichthyses on the backs of our cars. They are Christian symbols which Wikipedia* nicely explains here: ΙΧΘΥΣ (ichthys), or also ΙΧΘΥϹ with a lunate sigma, is an acronym or acrostic for Iēsous Christos, Theou Yios, Sōtēr; contemporary Koine , which translates into English as ‘Jesus Christ,…… Continue reading the daily purge 8-6-19
