    Yes, the Investigation Committee, that's what I meant, here we have 2 meets at home before everything starts/continues. Already had lots of dinners with my three macon friends that are supporting my petition :).

    After my first lodge meeting my wife was some what sceptical and doubted if it was necessary for me to join. She asked me "what did you did there at the lodge?" I said we had a meeting and a dinner "What did you talk about there?" I said we talked about jiujitsu and music. "I mean during the meeting what did you do?" My reply was That I can't tell you. Then she asked "Do you think I would be eaven remptely interrested about what happened there?" and I replied. To be honest my dear. I don't hink you would enjoy it but I really did. After that she said. "Well it seems like you enjoy it. You should go for it." And she has never asked again about things in side the lodge.

    I'm not sure that I understand. What did you learn before joining that you couldn't tell your wife.?

    Okay I got it….He would be associated to folks like us, in a closed room guarded by someone like us, keeping people away from folks like us!!! :D:D:D

    My partner hears about inside lodge all the time;
    Fred nailed his charge
    James was JD, fantastic job
    Candidate was good
    Sec talked too much
    Team was good or needs more work.
    Awesome speech/presentation etc

    Normally is a summary with highlights. I try to keep it positive. In 1 body, she knows all the guys, in others, some, others, none....

    It depends on your obligation and local culture and personal attitude... but here it's pretty open. We have open investitures so she's seen some workings, completely unchanged except minus signs.

    She's not really interested in what happens inside (open invests will do that lol) but she met me via lodge..... so Freemasonry been there from.the start, and knowing wonderful men who are brothers, had no fear around lodge. In fact, she pushed me to propose our most recent MM..

    I always brag I joined a Fraternity and emerged with a girlfriend :) Although its not that interesting, she was a friend of one of our Past Masters and very well known to that family (Dad and son are members). I'd met her several times over the years, and we went away as a group one weekend, and we met washing dishes... the rest is history :)
