the daily Schwimmbad, 6-19-20

Today the wife and I visited our local Schwimmbad. The word ‘Schwimmbad’ is the German translation for ‘swimming pool’. I think they otter change it to ‘Schwimmgood’ because it was wunderbar! The water is warm and clean looking. I did save a bug who was struggling. I scooped it out unto the pavement. He wiggled…… Continue reading the daily Schwimmbad, 6-19-20

I took a photygraph of the young man’s truck…… Continue reading the daily melt warning, 6-10-20

the daily zobu, 3-17-20

As I get older I am convinced that aches and pains have actually laid dormant in my body waiting for the completely wrong time to say, “ (((grunt ))) ”. Off and on for the past few weeks I have a soft, lowing pain near my lower rear driver-side teeth. So off to the dentist…… Continue reading the daily zobu, 3-17-20

the daily house interrogation, 2-19-20

As with any competent homebuyer, it’s worth our salt to have a home inspection before purchase. Eric and Candy spent about ninety minutes pouring over our home’s nooks and crannies making sure all drawers, light switches and drains are working dutifully. Except for a little this and a bit of that everything is sound. Now…… Continue reading the daily house interrogation, 2-19-20

the daily purge 11-12-19

OK, back to work. How am The Purging Lutheran going to rid my home of books, jewelry, spic’n’spacs and other such so’n’sos? Not until they’ve been photodocumented, written up and sent on their ways. That’s how. One at a time, one day at a time. “The tedious never die; that’s what makes them tedious.” ―…… Continue reading the daily purge 11-12-19

Trinity at 11700 block of Olio, Sunday morning 10:30 service, 2 Pastor Mikes presiding I used to go to this church a long time ago as a poll worker but never as an attendee.
