the daily purge 1-24-20

My Sweet Rib* puttered through the cabinettes below our bathroom sinks the other day. Among the many items** she found unworthy of keeping were several pill boxes. Getting older is a skill – a delicate ballet of eating poorly, drinking excessively and, eventually, popping pills to reverse the effects of the first two. The top…… Continue reading the daily purge 1-24-20

If The Purging Lutheran has an issue with my therapy, which is what these daily posts are a part of, it’s working up the gumption to make an effort. I find that somedays are better left to the ‘professionals’, them what have already writ something I can copy, cut and paste to my advantage. This…… Continue reading the daily lazy 12-17-19

Oy! 12-5-19 is Day One when The Purging Lutheran finally gets down to clearing out my desk of all the fiddle and faddle which has gathered over time in the drawers.

These are the options laid out by…… Continue reading the daily purge 11-19-19

Chesterton ******************** “This is the way of air travel: fellow passengers applaud because they didn’t…… Continue reading the daily dragonfly 11-14-19

the daily pork 11-1-19

The author of Know Your Groceries is named Frederick Blaine Humphrey. He was born in New York ~1876 and died in California, 1952. ‘Humphrey’ is not a common surname. Please do not mistake him for Minnesotan politician, Hubert Horatio Humphrey. It’s an easy-to-make error. Another easy doink! is to mistake Frederick Blaine Humphrey for professional typesetter, Hubert Blaine…… Continue reading the daily pork 11-1-19
