    Any interesting historical fun facts about Freemasonry in Texas? The Alamo, Tranquility Lodge, etc.

    I did a presentation on Tranquility Lodge for my home Lodge in Maryland. The Brothers seemed to enjoy it.

    Famous Texas Masons David Crockett and Sam Houston were first famous Tennessee Masons. ;)

    David Crockett never joined a lodge out here, so I guess that would mean he never was a Texas mason?

    He wasn't there long enough, I suppose, but he does have a lodge named after him, so it counts.

    That set off inside my head an avalanche of TV and movie music songs and mottoes.

    Davey, Davey Crockett. King of the wild frontier.

    Daniel Boone was a Man. A Big Man.

    Muppets in Space! (Ooops I mean Masons in Space!) ;^)

    And of course if your lodge has an organist the perfect music for a point in a degree where a bunch of Fellowcrafts are sent out on a search - the theme music from the original Mission: Impossible. The old TV show not the new movies, though I do like the new movies.

    The Crockett song is wrong right from the start. He wasn't born on a mountain top. He was born on a river bottom.
