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 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 ‘a is for this‘ ‘b is for that’ and so on, 4-27-20

  At the end of any of these please feel free to add the phrase “due to Covid 19”. A is for Amazon, our source for talcum powder but not disinfectant wipes, toilet paper, gloves and masks – due to Covid-19 (see how that works?) B is for ‘Birx’, an American physician who is working on The Wuhan…… Continue reading the daily ‘a is for this‘ ‘b is for that’ and so on, 4-27-20

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

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

the daily mao, 2-25-20

[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
