the daily ho-hummer-drummer, 6-3-20

Not everyday has to be “Wheeeee!” where ever you live. Even if you are a retiree. Some days must be set aside for the nermal things in life. Today was a day of errands. It almost always requires a car so here we are on the way to Spectrum to drop off some internet equipment.…… Continue reading the daily ho-hummer-drummer, 6-3-20

the daily dumbrella (and ho-ho! meme), 5-29-20

Mornings north of Ruskin begin on the back porch with a cup of coffee and two cigarettes. We have nice shade from the trees (Hey, you friends!) until the Earth spins to a point when we have no shade but … voila! … we’ve got this handy and dandy umbrella left behind by Ms. Previous…… Continue reading the daily dumbrella (and ho-ho! meme), 5-29-20

the daily felling, 5-26-20

Our neighborhood woke up to these gentlemen buzz-sawing away on a tree across the way. Following modern day journalistic standards, I didn’t bother to find out why they are doing this so I’ll just throw something out there. I’m guessing the tree was a danger to this home. I don’t have the appropriate angle of…… Continue reading the daily felling, 5-26-20

the daily everything is coming along nicely (i think), 5-19-20

This morning was a big day at The Purging Lutheran’s southern outpost. My Sweet Rib had scheduled throughout the day for the fellow to come fix the ice maker, another guy to work on the air conditioner, and to have a new bed delivered in the afternoon. By the time I rolled out of bed by 9-something…… Continue reading the daily everything is coming along nicely (i think), 5-19-20

the daily purge (hunting style) 5-6-20

  The Purging Lutheran worked at Borders Bookshop* long ago. A fellow worker handed me a book saying it was ‘a great read’**. I think it was called ‘Winter’ maybe? Or not. It was about a Texan couple who decide to move to Alaska for the winter and write about there experiences. They chopped wood,…… Continue reading the daily purge (hunting style) 5-6-20

the daily really, cream of celery soup?, 5-5-22

“There will always be cream of celery soup at Big Box Food. We only need one can at a time.” – The Purging Casserole (April of 2020)   Really, cream of celery soup? Really? You’re sold out? How can you be? And we weren’t the only ones searching for cream of celery soup. There was also…… Continue reading the daily really, cream of celery soup?, 5-5-22

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 lyrics all great and goober, 4-29-20

Day (enter your number here) of the lockdown. I gotsa find a way to eat up my time which doesn’t include building a pillow fort in the kitchen and snacking all day. So I’m sitting on the front stoop this morning wandering my saved sites and came upon a Supertramp video of them performing the…… Continue reading the daily lyrics all great and goober, 4-29-20

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 mind your own beeswax, 4-24-20

We have covered several athletic and recreational activities these few past days but now it’s time to put this baby to bed. But before we lay him down to sleep let us first engage in a little gun play. There was a time when dueling was a socially acceptable way for settling disputes with matched…… Continue reading the daily mind your own beeswax, 4-24-20
