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

    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 debristador, 4-3-20

It is called a garbage can, not a garbage cannot. Dear wigglepedia, please explain the dangers of garbage collection: Statistics show that waste collection is one of the most dangerous jobs, at times more dangerous than police work, but consistently less dangerous than commercial fishing and ranch and farm work. On-the-job hazards include broken glass, medical waste…… Continue reading the daily debristador, 4-3-20

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 daily grump 11-6-19

The Purging Lutheran is grumpy. My Sweet Rib went through her Christian-themed books to give away (in this case to a Bible book store) and this is one of them. It contains many examples of the Gospel which can be found in modern movies. Well, OK, this book is about 15 years old so you’d…… Continue reading the daily grump 11-6-19

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

the daily purge 9-5-19

The Purging Lutheran has this book to send off somewhere, maybe my church library or to a local Christian bookshop for sale. I will see. As the title sez, it’s a reference book for looking up everyday phrases and words which we thought were written by somebody else. ”Out of the mouth of babes”, is…… Continue reading the daily purge 9-5-19

the daily purge 8-15-19

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

the daily purge 8-6-19

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
