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

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.

the daily purge (hunting style) 5-6-20

  The Purging Lutheran worked at Borders Bookshop* long ago. A fellow worker handed me a book saying it was ‘a great read’**. I think it was called ‘Winter’ maybe? Or not.

the daily enough, 3-23-20

In these uncertain times there is one thing certain – Campbells Cream of Celery Soup will never sell out. Poor ‘C of C’, you’re great for recipes but are forced to sit at the back of the bus when it comes to being lunchtime goo. Susan and I toddled out to Big Box Food this…… Continue reading the daily enough, 3-23-20

the daily zobu, 3-17-20

As I get older I am convinced that aches and pains have actually laid dormant in my body waiting for the completely wrong time to say, “ (((grunt ))) ”. Off and on for the past few weeks I have a soft, lowing pain near my lower rear driver-side teeth. So off to the dentist…… Continue reading the daily zobu, 3-17-20

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 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?

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
