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

the daily purge (italian-style) 10-1-19

My Sweet Rib and The Purging Lutheran returned from Italy a few days ago. This toiletry bag made it home, too, but has since been thrown out. It was packed with toothpaste, deodorants, q-tips and all that stuff one needs to become presentable in public. A seam lost its integrity and and came apart at…… Continue reading the daily purge (italian-style) 10-1-19

And the train keeps a-‘rollin’ on … One of the recent Avenger movies ended with half of the universe’s population disintegrating to dust yet here is an image from a computer game from years preceding that particular Marvel Comics film by showing a ‘rough-n-tumble’ guy disintegrating into what looks like a gazillion Post-it notes. The…… Continue reading the daily purge 8-16-19

the daily purge(s) 8-2-19

These are some books My Sweet Rib offered for purge from hers and The Purging Lutheran’s library of various bibles, Christian fiction, and a lot of reference books. These three books all make reference to Heaven, or the afterlife*, which awaits all of us when we close our eyes for the final time on His…… Continue reading the daily purge(s) 8-2-19

The Purging Lutheran (me) is forgoing weeks of potential paint supplies purges and using this picture to represent all the brushes, edgers and more brushes My Sweet Rib (her) tossed out in a fit of puttering. These painting trays are what do-it-yourself house painting is all about. You paint for an hour or two, take…… Continue reading the daily purge 7-10-19

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 illustrated lutheran 6-27-19

  In my family we had two parents and five children, a total of seven lutherans. We celebrated birthdays once a year in July. Not for all of us but for just three of us – my father, Pete, my mother, Magdalena, and my eldest sister, Rita. This was because my father would have a…… Continue reading the illustrated lutheran 6-27-19
