Lutheran Aardvark

Confessional Lutheran theology, hagiography, philosophy, music, culture, sports, education, and whatever else is on the fevered mind of Orycteropus Afer

  Many Ways ...

Small Golden Aardvark AawardThis collection of Christmas writings also involves my special holiday bestowal of the Aardies upon some very worthy posters. Anyone so desiring may copy either the large or the small (shown here) Golden Aardvark, a token of having received the Aardvark Aaward for Raillery, Doctrine, or Intellect in Exposition. So ...

Thank you Herr Pastor, not only for the coveted award, but for pointing out a few posts that I’ve missed during a very hectic time of year. A merry Christmas from both the missus and I.
The dam bursts, leaving a big, watery, baptismal mess.

Happy New Year, Pastor, and thanks!

Pastor, thank you so much for the Golden Aardie Award! I think this is the first time I've ever gotten one from you. That's not too surprising since I don't post on my blog very often.

I didn't even notice until today because I don't look at too many blogs very often, but I will promptly post it on my blog, "loud and proud" as you described in your post about how to put the Aardie on one's blog. :D
Thank you very much for the Golden Aardie!! I just saw about it on Frank's blog -- guess I didn't scroll far enough when I read the Alley Christmas post.

And here I was wondering if anyone actually read my blog!

Thanks again!
Wow! Thanks for the props! You can bet I will be displaying my Golden Aardie loud and proud. And to think I owe it all to "barf!"

Thanks again!
Thanks Sir Aardvark! I'm a bit behind on my blog reading.

I can't believe I have an Aardie!
Thank you so much the award. I had been hoping for one and you noticed when I was not even trying. Thank You!

The Golden Aardvark Aaward

Why the Aardvark?
My Raison d’être
The aardvark is a "down & dirty" critter that spends its life rooting yucky things out of their dark haunts and feasting on their carcasses. Nuff said?
