the daily french pea purge, 4-1-20

Back in the day when VeggieTales was ‘the thing’, The Purging Lutheran was a big fan of The French Peas, Jean-Claude and Philippe*, so naturally why not buy a French Pea ddoo-ddad? Indeed, why not? When it was time to clear stuff out of the house this little guy didn’t pass the test for ‘essential…… Continue reading the daily french pea purge, 4-1-20

the daily purge 10-17-19

Ah! the magic of the I-pad allows The Purging Lutheran to take an ordinary picture, in this case one of My Sweet Rib’s neck laces, and make it look as something sinister. Ordinarily this is an ordinary picture of an ordinary neck lace but with a little bit of photo editing I made it look…… Continue reading the daily purge 10-17-19

this is your only warning   Philippians 3:17-19 Stick with me, friends. Keep track of those you see running this same course, headed for this same goal.

The Purging Lutheran is oot and aboot in Toronto by now, scoping out Latvian jewelry. In my absence I leave My Persistent Readers some pictures of several hot dog rolling grills located in gas stations along the I-69 corridor between Indianapolis and Ft. Wayne, Indianer. I took these photos a week ago on our way…… Continue reading the daily frankenwienerwurstenfurter 9-12-19

the daily purge 6-20-19

One day a man said, “The two greatest days in a person’s life is the day he buys his boat and the day he sells his boat”. This suggests that falling in a love with a thing will later become a disillusionment when dealing with its consequences. Buy a boat? Yay! Freedom on the waters!…… Continue reading the daily purge 6-20-19

the daily purge 6-14-19

The Purging Lutheran tossed out a xillion curtain holders. If you look at any one of them individilly it looks like a little wire pelican. “It’s curtains for you” is an idiom for death. Why? The ünterwœbble sez this: The idiom it’s curtains for you is taken from the fact that the final stage direction…… Continue reading the daily purge 6-14-19

the daily purge 3-8-19

The Purging Lutheran does my due diligence when it comes to poring over facts and figures on items I am throwing away. Usually, there’s too much information to use during my 30 – 120 minutes of therapy. I looked up what I thought would be oodles of synonyms for the word ‘moccasin’. All I found…… Continue reading the daily purge 3-8-19
