the daily flight home, 7-10-20

From the condo in Southwest Florida … . … to the plane, up, up and away … . … and with the help of angels I am carried safely through the lower of the three heavens, … . … who bring me to a screeching halt … . … and, finally, an Über ride to…… Continue reading the daily flight home, 7-10-20

the daily wheezy-2-look-at-pitchers: part two: the unpicturing, 5-1-20

the photogdúmpenbùrgerdampf continues … Sports didn’t begin with the National Football League. Games like tennis, badminton and pole throwing have been around for hundreds of years but the one Americans like best is good, ol’ American football. If you’ve followed the Green Bay Packers or the Cleveland Browns you well know you can show support…… Continue reading the daily wheezy-2-look-at-pitchers: part two: the unpicturing, 5-1-20

the daily crackling and hissing, 4-28-20

(with thanks to C. Schultz and others) “The time will come when diligent research over long periods will bring to light things which now lie hidden. A single lifetime, even though entirely devoted to the sky, would not be enough for the investigation of so vast a subject… And so this knowledge will be unfolded…… Continue reading the daily crackling and hissing, 4-28-20

the daily malino (plus exciting space purge!) 4-16-20

The title Furono già tra noi? translategoogle’s to Was already among us?.  I’ve scanned over many of Walter’s illustrations on the úndervēb and have come to the conclusion that he’s a bit of a sadist. This is one his least ‘violent’ artworks. It appears that space aliens are ‘visiting’ a small, backward village in a…… Continue reading the daily malino (plus exciting space purge!) 4-16-20

the daily shiver me timbers! 1-20-20

“I’m also Sturmhond, commander of the Volkvony, scourge of the True Sea.’ ‘Scourge?’ ‘Well, I’m vexing at the very least.” ― Leigh Bardugo   Genesis 6:5-7 God saw that human evil was out of control. People thought evil, imagined evil—evil, evil, evil from morning to night. God was sorry that he had made the human…… Continue reading the daily shiver me timbers! 1-20-20

the daily purge 1-17-20

Sometimes The Purging Lutheran comes across an item in the impulse baskets at checkout I cannot resist buying. What’s not to love about Wippity Wipes? They ‘wipe like a towel’, ‘dry like a chamois’ and ‘absorb like a sponge’. Let’s see the U. S. Constitution* do that. But above all, who can turn their eyes…… Continue reading the daily purge 1-17-20

the daily purge 1-8-20

Short version: Read the Bible. Long version: Years ago when My Sweet Rib and The Purging Lutheran came to Jesus we were excited about reading the Bible and bought books to help understand what we were reading. We bought books, mostly from the Lutheran point of view, about the gospels and, well, what’s more important…… Continue reading the daily purge 1-8-20

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 pickle 11-15-19

What with the holidays approaching and families gathering, let’s do our best to leave our political-religious-scientific beliefs at the doorstep. Enjoy your turducken, tofu taters, greenus-beanus, and any peculiar recipe your red-haired aunt serves. The last thing any tribal assembly needs is a serving of k-nuckle sandwiches. Love your brother and mother and sister and…… Continue reading the daily pickle 11-15-19

the daily purge 10-29-19

The Purging Lutheran gathered up the games The Lad doesn’t play anymore and sent them away. Here is one of them. The Call of Duty Corporation, likely based out of Walla Walla, Washington, keeps crankin’ these babies out for breakfast, lunch, dinner and the occasional 9pm carb-attack. Their commercials are splattered on many sports networks…… Continue reading the daily purge 10-29-19
