    well i went to the lodge to go meet some brothers and to introduce myself. i was a little nervous about walking in. i think i took me a few seconds before my arms would reach for the door. i knew what i wanted so i reached for the door and walked in! at first i was kinda imbarrest when i saw everyone having a meeting but was greated and flagged to come over. a older man asked how can we help you!!!! and in that moment i couldnt speak, words were rushing in my head but not to my mouth lol....and when i spoke, a brother on here had said my name as if he already knew i was coming. and i smiled and said i was wanting a petetion. i was told to join the meeting as so i did. i think a hour pasted as they talked and laughed. i still was in total disbelief and i didnt say much... well the time came for everyone to go so i was told to hang out and someone would be with me in a minute.

    a few minutes had passed and a brother came over, sat down with me and asked me a few questions.... the biggest one was why did i seek them and why do i want to be a mason...at that moment so many thoughs a phrases came rushing in my head to answer his questions... then i got the history on masons. which most i already knew about..by this time i was so relaxed and comfortable it was very easy to talk. i felt like i was already a mason if that makes since....like i was ment to be there....

    so tomorrow i have to go back to the lodge to see if they got any petitions i can fill out since they didnt have none my last visit....then all i need to do is wait until i get paid so i can give my petition fee and hopefully in jan 2011 i will be voted in and be a brother!

    big thanks to everyone on here who has helped me in my journey.......

    Gary,

    I missed you on Monday. You should have showed up Tuesday, when we were having our big annual Christmas Dinner:w00t:. I asked if you had stopped by and I was told the Brother Jack Marshall had talked to you, so all is well.

    Here is a PDF version of the petition so you can fill it out, print it, and bring it with you to lodge.

    Regards,


    Nick

    Take your time there is no reason to rush, the Lodge will still be there once you are up and running.

    If you were born in the State of Texas you can pick up a certified copy of your birth certificate at just about any county court house.

    Hey brother. Forget the busted truck. Call one of those brothers to come get you. You might even find a fair hand around the lodge who can give you a hand with that truck.

    One of life's great little lessons is this: busted trucks will always be with us, that petition into masonry is a one-time shot.

    God bless.
