The Purging Lutheran begins this week with fashion advice. Do not. Do not. Do not! buy your wife jewelry based on cartoon characters. This string of ‘Wilma* rocks’ was not ever worn by My Sweet Rib. 1 John 1:8-10  If we claim that we’re free of sin, we’re only fooling ourselves. A claim like that…… Continue reading the daily purge 12-17-18

Beach combers, landlubbers and polliwogs*(?) recognize this as a ‘beach chair’, a chair you set on where the ocean meets the land. It’s a low-rider model which means it’s nearly impossible to get out of even if you are a healthy dame or fella. Your bottom is only a few inches above sea shells and…… Continue reading the daily purge 10-30-18

Yog! The mysteries in our world are nearly innumerable. Did you know there are animals who actually feast on wasps? They are known as ‘vespivores’. These include bears, badgers, bats, weasels, rats and dragonflies. But what about the nasty stingers? Some animals eat around them, others rub the wasp against a tree thus removing the stinger,…… Continue reading the daily purge 10-17-18

It’s National Friday the 13th Day here on Gatewick Avenue. In honor of this bless-ed secular holiday The Purging Lutheran is running a contest. If you can guess, correctly, how many birdseed seeds are in this bucket, you win a free t-shirt with a fancy-dan TPL signature. In case of a tie, contestants will be…… Continue reading the daily purge 4-13-18

Does The Purging Lutheran have massive palms or just squatty fingers? The world may never know. Our neighborhood has an irritated Mailman Mike or a bandito who pulls shenanigans with my and my neighbors’ mailbox flags. My Sweet Rib found our flag in our box, torn from its mooring. Other parts of the flag’s components were…… Continue reading the daily purge 4-12-18

Ants are orderly. The Boy Scouts of America are orderly. Medical orderlies are orderly. Synchronized swimmers are orderly. High school hall monitors are orderly. Mathematics are orderly. The U.S. military is orderly. What’s not orderly? Silverware! When spoons, forks and knives get together they behave like cats in a dog pound. The Purging Lutheran has…… Continue reading the daily purge 4-6-18

”Woblongs blong but they dont blong wob!” * It can’t be a real woblong (an oblong, plastic throwing toy). It can’t even be a false woblong (a twisted piece of metal which, if thrown, could cause a serious injury). While fooding the cats this morning in the basement, The Purging Lutheran eyeballed this … it. I…… Continue reading the daily purge 3-23-18

What is The Purging Lutheran giving to our next door neighbor? At first blush it appears to be a jail cell for a peanut butter sandwich. I guess it could be but BEWARE Big Creamy retain the best lawyers in the land. This is why you’ll never see a pb sandwich in the big house.…… Continue reading the daily purge 3-16-18

There is no photo trickery here.  I used my night-vision I-phone to capture this old printer at rest. The Purging Lutheran had to sneak up on it last evening so it wouldn’t be startled and run off a dozen sheets of blank paper. I’m not sure why My Sweet Rib wants to purge this printer.…… Continue reading the daily purge 3-9-18

Just so you know, every Friday is ‘tap every category Friday’. Everytime The Purging Lutheran purges I add a category or two in line with the product being purged that day. I certainly have persistent Persistent Readers but only a few of them. By using a wildly random list of categories I am hoping to…… Continue reading the daily purge 3-2-18
