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

Question: Where is the first Baseball game in the Bible? Answer: In the Big Inning. Eve stole first, Adam stole second, Cain struck out Abel, and the Prodial son came home. The Giants and Angels were rained out. While we’re on the topic of humor howzabowt some more Bible jokes? Q: Who was the greatest comedian…… Continue reading the daily purge+ 4-14-20

These are the V’s knees. In a joint effort to find relief, Susan and I visited our orthopedic surgeon to look into knees replacement surgeries. ‘Knees’ = plural, meaning two knees*. Doctor E. said it’s best to stick to one at a time considering my health record (which has set no records) so let’s take…… Continue reading the daily bone, 3-6-20

The Purging Lutheran isn’t a natural ‘pack rat’ but there have been a few things, mostly newspaper articles like these, which I have held on to for years and years. I have ticky-tacky doo-dads picked up from here and there which I thought were pretty cool. One is a drink coaster the theater was giving…… Continue reading the daily purge 1-28-20

* The Purging Lutheran and My Sweet Rib purchased this table but don’t remember where and don’t remember when. What we do remember, and fondly, was how useful this table was. It was a sturdy fella and managed, without complaint, to withstand a whole ‘boodle of objects being placed upon it. These would include but…… Continue reading the daily purge 1-16-20

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? 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

“It is absurd for the Evolutionist to complain that it is unthinkable for an admittedly unthinkable God to make everything out of nothing, and then pretend that it is more thinkable that nothing should turn itself into everything.” ― G.K. Chesterton ******************** “This is the way of air travel: fellow passengers applaud because they didn’t…… Continue reading the daily dragonfly 11-14-19

Preamble: These went away to a gararge sale. Wow! It is a multi-purge! Rather than doink!-doink!-doink! items one at a time let us see what happens if The Purging Lutheran doinks! a bunch at a time. Cup hooks. These screw into a wall and you hang cups on them. Well, not necessarily cups but other…… Continue reading the daily purge 6-28-19

the illustrated lutheran 6-27-19

  In my family we had two parents and five children, a total of seven lutherans. We celebrated birthdays once a year in July. Not for all of us but for just three of us – my father, Pete, my mother, Magdalena, and my eldest sister, Rita. This was because my father would have a…… Continue reading the illustrated lutheran 6-27-19

the daily purge 3-8-19

The Purging Lutheran does my due diligence when it comes to poring over facts and figures on items I am throwing away. Usually, there’s too much information to use during my 30 – 120 minutes of therapy. I looked up what I thought would be oodles of synonyms for the word ‘moccasin’. All I found…… Continue reading the daily purge 3-8-19
