    Have fun, brothers! I'm sad I won't be able to make it, but it didn't fit in the schedule. We got the theater to do the degree in, so there's something like 190 seats available. Talk about a show!

    It is not until the 30th. My son and I will be attending. I will write it up in the blog by Monday. If anyone wants to go we are leaving Bastrop at 4AM on Saturday. We have two seats available.

    We are also going to the Grand Master receiving at Blanco Lodge on Saturday night. It starts at 6:30pm. We will be passing through Bastrop and Austin on the way if anyone needs a ride to Blanco.

    Wow. That is really awesome! Are only military/Navy masons allowed on the aircraft carrier?

    No, it is a museum. It is no longer active military.

    The Lexington is a floating museum. It's keel was laid in 1941, and it was commissioned in 1943. It was decommissioned in 1993, although the Japanese Navy reported sinking it 4 times during WW2. I'd imagine since it's a public museum now, all Masons are welcome. Very cool, wish I was already a Mason so I could attend.
