I am patiently waiting for the 22nd of May. I will be the first of two that evening to receive the third degree of Freemasonry. I have been the second for both of the preceding degrees and I was sure to give back my work first so as to ensure that I will be able to view the degree work for once before giving my memory work back two weeks later. Doing so has helped me in the past but I have had to come to lodge on a night that the degree was being administered. This meant for the Fellowcraft, I had to travel to another lodge. Not that this was unwelcome, I truly appreciated the opportunity to fellowship with other brethren. However, being able to see what I just went through that night will be very beneficial to me as that is my learning style.
So in the meantime, I have a few activities planned. I just picked up “The man who would be king” from the local library. That will surely satisfy my Masonic appetite for a few days at least. Secondly, I am headed up to the Ohio Masonic Home on the 8th of May for dinner and to see the past masters of the area put on a Fellowcraft for the resident brethren there. I have also been working on laying out the new webpage for our lodge as soon as I hear back from the webmaster for the state, I should be able to access the server to up load it. Our current page is well, not so current. All of this is designed to help me not go crazy by just looking at Masonic jewelry all the time as I wait for the 22nd of May.
