the daily you’re too old to read, 7-7-20

I’ll give Florida credit. It tries to make it easy for the elderly. Need a haircut? Do you care if your barber is named Ed, Ted or Frederick? NO! Not in Tampa. . Does it really matter if the fellow dry-cleaning your golf shorts is named Uncle Bill, Tommy Doe or Little Louie? NO! Not…… Continue reading the daily you’re too old to read, 7-7-20

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

I’m a bit crabby today. =================================== Freedom of choice Is what you got Freedom of choice!

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

the daily purge 1-14-20

A question Christians and non-Christians frequently ask is “How do people, if they’ve never heard the Gospel, get into Heaven?” Christians ask this because of their desire to see everyone saved. ‘Have billions of people been judged wanting because we’ve been negligent in His command to ‘make disciples of all nations’?’ Matthew 28:19-20 Therefore go…… Continue reading the daily purge 1-14-20

the daily cluck 12-18-19

How eggs is made.   Genesis 7:1-5 Next God said to Noah, “Now board the ship, you and all your family—out of everyone in this generation, you’re the righteous one. 2-4 “Take on board with you seven pairs of every clean animal, a male and a female; one pair of every unclean animal, a male and…… Continue reading the daily cluck 12-18-19

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.

the daily purge 11-25-19

The world is filled with mystery books. Mysteries about murders, robberies, criminal shenanigans and dirty dealings in the business, medical and oil fracking worlds. My Sweet Rib has read many mystery books, this one included. What’s it about? Read what the book’s blurb says: Still mourning the death of his wife, private investigator Mark Novak…… Continue reading the daily purge 11-25-19

the daily purge 11-13-19

Spoiler warning: The Purging Lutheran spoils everything. I haven’t read this book, which was released in 19-aught-86, but My Sweet Rib read it recently. It’s give-or-take a billion pages filled with details which could never make it into the film (unless you enjoy billion-minute films). It’s common knowledge that films of books tend to stray…… Continue reading the daily purge 11-13-19

the daily purge 11-5-19

Ah, yes, pyramids. When The Purging Lutheran was a wee bęrn I became aware of ‘pyramid power’. Pyramids were thought to be receiving antennas of messages sent by ancient civilizations based in galaxies gazillions of light years away. One other-worldly outlander group, ‘The Pepsi Generation’*, downloaded instructions through Egyptian pyramids for us to build the…… Continue reading the daily purge 11-5-19
