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 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 purge+, 4-13-20

‘Plus’ what? While sitting on the couch during these ‘uncertain times’* The Purging Lutheran has had mucho time to check out various websites on my IPad. One site I visit is ‘vintage everyday’ which posts odd-nick photos from the past. I fell upon a post which focused on the illustrative works of an Italian fellow…… Continue reading the daily purge+, 4-13-20

the daily purge 3-4-20

OK, let’s do this again. The Purging Lutheran’s debacle of a post on Monday is a reminder that webblobbing is serious sport. Mistakes made are mistakes pointed out. Believability falls through the roof and soon the reader is asking, “Do I trust his  judgement or is he a flimflam man?” Persistent Reader: Do I trust…… Continue reading the daily purge 3-4-20

[editor’s note – The Purging Lutheran in no way endorses any communist, socialist, national socialist, militaristic, monarchist, oligarchic, authoritarian or totalitarian styles of government. This is only written for entertainment value (if any).] . The other day Susan and I were driving the Tampa area and my brain was minding its own business when out of nowhere it…… Continue reading the daily mao, 2-25-20

the daily purge 1-23-20

Through The Purging Lutheran’s excessive photo-fiddling skills I was able to make this magazine basket look like a highly coveted basket which could be used for just about anything. Well, as long as it fits. Your SUV wouldn’t fit in there very well but many items would. Oranges would fit. Grains of sand would fit.…… Continue reading the daily purge 1-23-20

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 scat 12-3-19

Definition of caterwaul intransitive verb 1: to make a harsh cry 2: to protest or complain noisily Colossians 3:15-17 Let the peace of Christ keep you in tune with each other, in step with each other. None of this going off and doing your own thing. And cultivate thankfulness. Let the Word of Christ—the Message—have…… Continue reading the daily scat 12-3-19

the daily purge 11-21-19

My Sweet Rib has only two eyes – a right one and the other one yet she has multiple pairs of reading glasses. She has enough reading glasses to open a CVS just down the street from our local CVS. CVS seems to have a reading glasses spinner rack every few aisles which is astounding…… Continue reading the daily purge 11-21-19

the daily finger poke 10-28-19

The Purging Lutheran’s sister, Lind Loo, is married to Marty. His sister, Rita, is an artist up around Chicago way. Rita paints, designs and probably sculpts but I know her best for her ‘pants of fingers’. The great thing about truly creative artists is it’s not possible to figure what they’ll do next. She thought…… Continue reading the daily finger poke 10-28-19
