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.

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
