the daily very scary story, 6-30-20

While oot and aboot on our pre-evening gulf cart ride we took a turn down a mysterious road in our neighborhood NOT listed on any maps. There was only a sign which said “Boogertown Road – Crybaby Bridge ahead”. My father-in-law got lost driving years ago around in a Southern state, perhaps Mississippi or Tennessee,…… Continue reading the daily very scary story, 6-30-20

the daily near-symmetrical lounge chair stacking event of 2020, 6-17-20

A flower is a great way to begin a post. This one blossomed out back last week. They last a day or two then just go away. It did its job. Its job is to be beautiful. Yes, it might be a port in the yard for bees to pollinate but bees don’t see color.…… Continue reading the daily near-symmetrical lounge chair stacking event of 2020, 6-17-20

the daily ‘a is for this‘ ‘b is for that’ and so on, 4-27-20

  At the end of any of these please feel free to add the phrase “due to Covid 19”. A is for Amazon, our source for talcum powder but not disinfectant wipes, toilet paper, gloves and masks – due to Covid-19 (see how that works?) B is for ‘Birx’, an American physician who is working on The Wuhan…… Continue reading the daily ‘a is for this‘ ‘b is for that’ and so on, 4-27-20

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 borentine, 3-27-20

The wind isn’t even blowing. (( sigh )) It’s Day-Who-Knows-How-Many? in the household. Aleksandrs is up in his room. Susan is poking on her I-Pad with Kaden SuperPup at her side. I’m doing the ‘scroll-tap, scroll-tap, scroll-tap’ on Twitter. The coffeemaker and the Keurig are both doing double duty. The (gas) fireplace is on and its…… Continue reading the daily borentine, 3-27-20

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

The Purging Lutheran reviews the weekend, No Garezers For Old Men, plus a short editorial about the ‘Dievam un Latvijai’ part of the welcome sign, 7-15-19

How was the weekend? Take a few screwdrivers (the potato kind), some CCDCs (the Unca Rob kind), a definite lack of sleep and throw in a final pack of Camel Crushes (lungs breathe a *sigh* of relief), mix it all together and I deserved this: But, we did have a buncha plates of homemade grits…… Continue reading The Purging Lutheran reviews the weekend, No Garezers For Old Men, plus a short editorial about the ‘Dievam un Latvijai’ part of the welcome sign, 7-15-19

the pcircling lutheran 7-12-19

What? A new plan? Are purges wenting with the wind? Is it even possible? Is there something new? What could it be? Has The Purging Lutheran gone mad? How many questions can a post include? I don’t know? What do you think. Job 38:4-7 Where were you when I laid the earth’s foundation?     Tell me,…… Continue reading the pcircling lutheran 7-12-19
