the daily hot foot, 6-25-20

These are my feet standing on the parking lot outside the pool waiting for it to open. It is/was about 93° at the time. I’ve been wanting to talk a little about asphalt in one of my posts and this seems like an appropriate time. Did you know that on a hot day the surface…… Continue reading the daily hot foot, 6-25-20

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 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 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?

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 zwischenzug, 4-22-20

Not all sports involve arm and leg muscles. Sports also involve the brain which has muscles, right? Let’s look up the term muscle-brain shall we? muscle-brain – A person who actively participates in physical sports, possibly highly skilled in sports, but does not do well in academic activities, like math and science. A large, strong, but inept,…… Continue reading the daily zwischenzug, 4-22-20

the daily unoriginal content 4-20-20

How many times can a guy photygraph a flower or a tree and write an article about how ‘life finds a way in these troubling and uncertain times’? The Purging Lutheran seems to have found my limit but more on that later. Unless something dire arises this week will be filled with unoriginal content, at…… Continue reading the daily unoriginal content 4-20-20

the daily walter (and purge!) 4-15-20

[ WARNING: This post contains a graphic act of violent ] The Purging Lutheran has zero idea what kind of article Walter Milano was drawing this illustration for. The assassination seems to be occurring in a North African country, perhaps Algieria. Persistent Reader: How do you figure this? The Purging Lutheran: Well, I noticed that…… Continue reading the daily walter (and purge!) 4-15-20

Easter Sunday – old testament resurrection and the peacock

Daniel 12:2 – And many of those who sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake, some to everlasting life, and some to shame and everlasting contempt. Isaiah 26:19 – Your dead shall live; their bodies shall rise. You who dwell in the dust, awake and sing for joy! For your dew is a dew of light, and the…… Continue reading Easter Sunday – old testament resurrection and the peacock

the daily f. b. humphrey, 3-26-20

  [ Ed. note: If I had any shame at all I’d simply post a purge of some shoestrings I tossed out in the garbage the other day]   The Purging Lutheran (me) achieved some mild success with yesterday’s post, “the daily purge. j. o’rourke, 3-25-20” so what better way to sell-out for more clicks…… Continue reading the daily f. b. humphrey, 3-26-20
