the daily unsystematic image chuck, 6-2-20

Not much going on today – yet. This fellow works for our neighborhood weed control. This was at 11:30 or so this morning. I am grateful for him. He keeps nature’s nastiest at bay. Weeds pop up making our Pleasant Valley Sunday very unpleasant. Regardless what anyone thinks about weed control (I’m for it because…… Continue reading the daily unsystematic image chuck, 6-2-20

the daily crackling and hissing, 4-28-20

(with thanks to C. Schultz and others) “The time will come when diligent research over long periods will bring to light things which now lie hidden. A single lifetime, even though entirely devoted to the sky, would not be enough for the investigation of so vast a subject… And so this knowledge will be unfolded…… Continue reading the daily crackling and hissing, 4-28-20

the daily ‘a is for this‘ ‘b is for that’ and so on, 4-27-20

  At the end of any of these please feel free to add the phrase “due to Covid 19”. A is for Amazon, our source for talcum powder but not disinfectant wipes, toilet paper, gloves and masks – due to Covid-19 (see how that works?) B is for ‘Birx’, an American physician who is working on The Wuhan…… Continue reading the daily ‘a is for this‘ ‘b is for that’ and so on, 4-27-20

the daily clean close, 3-30-20

What better reason is there to clean the home than when the notary public comes over to have us sign papers to finish buying a condo in Florida? Never mind we cannot go there for a extra month at least. At least we are rollin’ with ‘the big boys’, throwing our money around like so…… Continue reading the daily clean close, 3-30-20

the daily snorentine, 3-20-20

  My daughter, Marta, has been observing the universal quarantine while living in The City of Big Shoulders. Her cat, Jezebel, has adopted her own version of the quarantine she has claimed as her own, – ‘snorentine’. Cats are pretty smart people. Let’s all follow her example. Thank you, Marta and Jezebel, for showing us…… Continue reading the daily snorentine, 3-20-20

the daily cross (part two), 3-19-20

Me, day four of the national lockdown.   Now, more crosses on the wall. Susan bought this cross for me when she was in Seville, Spain. Did she buy it from a barber? I doubt it but you never know if a barber might be working in a trinket shop to earn a few extra…… Continue reading the daily cross (part two), 3-19-20

the daily doom, 3-13-20

An update from Susan after her trip to Big Box Food Building: Big Box Food company was ridiculously busy this morning. Oddly enough, carts weren’t loaded with yumms. Why? Because there was no meat, no bread, no milk, no toilet paper and no soup. Is it a French toast emergency? Sorry, Charlie, you’re out of…… Continue reading the daily doom, 3-13-20

the daily purge 3-2-20

Well, it’s vacation over and back to work for The Purging Lutheran. In Florida My Sweet Rib worked on her tan, bought a condominium, learned her ‘Mojito limit’ (two) and looked gorgeous doing it all. While filling out the papers for the loan, insurance and assorted administrativia involved in home buying, I smiled politely and signed…… Continue reading the daily purge 3-2-20

the daily purge 1-7-20

Phones come. Phones go. Every few years Big Wireless sends updates to The Purging Lutheran’s phone causing them to become hopelessly out-of-date necessitating me to purchase a new one. And then a other one and a other one. What a racket, Jack! These particular phones are from The Lad Collection, my son’s cells through the…… Continue reading the daily purge 1-7-20

the daily purge 12-10-19

Opening tip. Hey, Gomer! It’s a neck lace tree. The Purging Lutheran isn’t sure where it came from. I didn’t buy it for My Sweet Rib, did I? But if I did not who did it come from? Time out. What happened on this date in 1521? Please read further. Exsurge Domine (Latin for “Arise, O…… Continue reading the daily purge 12-10-19
