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 cancellation, 3-12-20

As of March 12, 2020 various universities, professional sports leagues, Bible studies, pizza deliveries and college basketball tournaments have been either cancelled or postponed* because of the Wuhan virus. Who am I to argue with this? Politics aside, it’s always a good idea to 1. wash your hands, 2. sneeze into your elbow pit or…… Continue reading the daily cancellation, 3-12-20

the daily purge 1-31-20

Sometime technology can get too ‘-ology’ for The Purging Lutheran. I hads to ask My Sweet Rib what this was b’fore I photo-documented and tossed in the box for Goodwilly. It’s an alarm clock. I mean had I used the process of elimination I would have eventually narrowed it down to that. I might have…… Continue reading the daily purge 1-31-20

the daily reflection 11-29-19

How sin sees itself. 1 Corinthians 13:12 We don’t yet see things clearly. We’re squinting in a fog, peering through a mist. But it won’t be long before the weather clears and the sun shines bright! We’ll see it all then, see it all as clearly as God sees us, knowing him directly just as…… Continue reading the daily reflection 11-29-19

the daily purge 10-8-19

What? A purge? When wuz the last time we seen a purge? Days? Weeks? Minutes? Hours? All answers are right. All answers are wrong. It depends ‘where’ you are. What did John Lennon once sing? “Turn off your mind relax and float down stream. It is not dying, it is not dying. Lay down all thoughts, surrender…… Continue reading the daily purge 10-8-19

the daily purge 8-20-19

Alright, this is a pneumatic screen and storm door closer. The Purging Lutheran, while doing my due diligence to ensure the infallibility of my posts, uncovered three meanings for the word ‘pneumatic’. It’s a Greek word which,  broken down, means ‘breath’ and/or ‘wind’. Looky here Origin early 17th century (in pneumatic (sense 2 of the…… Continue reading the daily purge 8-20-19

the daily poke (around the internet) 7-17-19

The Purging Lutheran can’t spend all my time writing stories about throwing out beat-up shoes and unopened tubes of graphite powder. As my foggy mental breakdown seems to have lightened a bit maybe it is time to broaden my horizon. Every now and then the internet tosses stuff out there which raises my eyebrows. I…… Continue reading the daily poke (around the internet) 7-17-19
