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 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 enough, 3-23-20

In these uncertain times there is one thing certain – Campbells Cream of Celery Soup will never sell out. Poor ‘C of C’, you’re great for recipes but are forced to sit at the back of the bus when it comes to being lunchtime goo. Susan and I toddled out to Big Box Food this…… Continue reading the daily enough, 3-23-20

the daily purge 1-30-20

Indiana University won it’s latest men’s basketball tournament in 1987. Since then Bobby Knight was booted out, Kelvin Sampson got the bum’s rush for making ‘illegal’ phone calls to recruits (which are legal now in the NCAA), Tom Crean inherited a mess and was unceremoniously dumped and now we have Archie Miller who is having…… Continue reading the daily purge 1-30-20

the daily admonishments 12-13-19

If you grow up long enough you’ll have plenty people give you stern warnings about what is safe and what is sorry. Don’t run with scissors. Don’t run with a lollipop in your mouth. Don’t run with unstable dynamite. Those sort of things. You might notice that ‘running’ is the common denominator in these three…… Continue reading the daily admonishments 12-13-19

the daily guidance or recommendation offered with regard to prudent future action 12-11-19

The Purging Lutheran will find this is true. What other nidbits of advice seem reasonable? Let’s find out, shall we? “Never miss a good chance to shut up.” ― Will Rogers “Never ruin an apology with an excuse.” ― Benjamin Franklin “I used to think the worst thing in life was to end up all alone. It’s…… Continue reading the daily guidance or recommendation offered with regard to prudent future action 12-11-19

the pmopping mollies 7-11-19

Speaking of purging, My Sweet Rib hired the renowned cleaning company, Molly Maid, to do a deep clean in our home. Dust and gunk and crud and grime were shown no mercy by the women armed with pails, rags and clean-smelling all -purpose cleaners. They dusted (yuk!) and mopped, vacuumed, dusted some more and wiped…… Continue reading the pmopping mollies 7-11-19

the daily purge 7-2-19

A perfect example of human failure is right here in this picture. The Purging Lutheran bought this Clear Household Silicone, put it on a gararge shelf, and years later is getting rid of it. And why? I’m not sure. It’s probably because of the bottom illustration on the packaging. No, it’s not because I don’t…… Continue reading the daily purge 7-2-19

the view from the trinity pew 6-30-19

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. Years ago it held a Wesleyan congregation but the name went away from the sign and became Trinity. I don’t know…… Continue reading the view from the trinity pew 6-30-19

the daily purge 6-28-19

Preamble: These went away to a gararge sale. Wow! It is a multi-purge! Rather than doink!-doink!-doink! items one at a time let us see what happens if The Purging Lutheran doinks! a bunch at a time. Cup hooks. These screw into a wall and you hang cups on them. Well, not necessarily cups but other…… Continue reading the daily purge 6-28-19
