This morning was a big day at The Purging Lutheran’s southern outpost. My Sweet Rib had scheduled throughout the day for the fellow to come fix the ice maker, another guy to work on the air conditioner, and to have a new bed delivered in the afternoon. By the time I rolled out of bed by 9-something…… Continue reading the daily everything is coming along nicely (i think), 5-19-20

the daily purge 11-13-19

Spoiler warning: The Purging Lutheran spoils everything. I haven’t read this book, which was released in 19-aught-86, but My Sweet Rib read it recently. It’s give-or-take a billion pages filled with details which could never make it into the film (unless you enjoy billion-minute films). It’s common knowledge that films of books tend to stray…… Continue reading the daily purge 11-13-19
