the daily purge 7-15-20

Back to the egg, as Paul McCartney would say. I haven’t posted a proper purge in ever. This desk lamp has been on our headboard for nearly 20 years and I’ve done nothing but complain about it for all that time. Without going into details (thanks to too much coffee) this lamp has been troublesome…… Continue reading the daily purge 7-15-20

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

the daily melt warning, 6-10-20

Susan and I made the decision to upgrade the warranty on our home in Fla. The nice fella came over to run a quick inspection just to make sure we weren’t upgrading simply to cover a pre-existing condition*. It is very toasty here in Hotsville, USA. I took a photygraph of the young man’s truck…… Continue reading the daily melt warning, 6-10-20

the daily tree hotchpotch and possible plant-related purge depending if i get around to it, 5-8-20

It’s common nowadays for persons in academia who find ancient markings etched upon the walls of pyramids and ziggurats to use them as ‘proof’ that what we think is true today is, in fact, false. Take for instance a few years back back when an ancient Mayan calendar was discovered and translated. It was seen…… Continue reading the daily tree hotchpotch and possible plant-related purge depending if i get around to it, 5-8-20

the daily 26.2 , 4-23-20

What is the opposite of yesterday’s post about the sedate, gentlemanly pursuit of chess? Why, it’s the Olympic marathon! Whereas in chess you sit and stare, Olympic marathon requires you to run (the opposite of sitting) and hallucinate (the opposite of determined concentration). Why is running such an important part of Olympic marathoning? That’s how you…… Continue reading the daily 26.2 , 4-23-20

the daily walter (and purge!) 4-15-20

[ WARNING: This post contains a graphic act of violent ] The Purging Lutheran has zero idea what kind of article Walter Milano was drawing this illustration for. The assassination seems to be occurring in a North African country, perhaps Algieria. Persistent Reader: How do you figure this? The Purging Lutheran: Well, I noticed that…… Continue reading the daily walter (and purge!) 4-15-20

the daily carnage, 4-9-20

Before anything, a reminder today is Maundy* Thursday. In Act One (Maundy Thursday) Jesus’ actions reveal that discipleship means crossing the boundary from selfishness to servanthood. While the plot against him begins to unfold, Jesus has a meal with his disciples and afterwards washes their feet. The humility and self-denial of the foot-washing  foreshadow the…… Continue reading the daily carnage, 4-9-20

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 leer 11-27-19

dead, alive or hiding in electrons, richard burton finds a way to scope out the dames Habakkuk 1:5-11 “Look around at the godless nations.     Look long and hard. Brace yourself for a shock. Something’s about to take place     and you’re going to find it hard to believe. I’m about to raise up Babylonians to punish…… Continue reading the daily leer 11-27-19

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
