I actually recorded myself saying Pennsylvania about a half dozen different times, each with different inflections, and tones. Although we ended up going with that one, I'm pretty sure that recording is still lurking around somewhere. Maybe in another 10 shows or so, when we have enough "extras" to fill an hours worth of time, we can work that in there.
Thank you brother it's nice meeting new brothers of the craft and getting to know them, we all know what goes on in the lodge if we are true brother of masonry no reason to bring up the inter workings of it, maybe just me but the ones that want to talk about the Inter workings maybe are outsiders
I met a brother in the chow hall just yesterday. All I had to do was say"Hi I noticed your ring from across the room" I introduced myself and what lodge I was from as did he and that was all that needed to be said. He is going to email the schedule for the lodge here and once we are at lodge we'll get a the formal questions asked and answered.
I was signing a customer in for service yesterday and he asked me, "Are you a Mason?" I said yes, he said me, too, and a quick conversation followed. Turns out we've crossed paths at Officer Association meetings, but never actually met.
That works well within a jurisdiction because it leads by a circuitous path to a discussion of local lodges. Furthermore since the wording is different jurisdiction to jurisdiction the grand hail might not be noticed even by a brother. Any obsolete or repetitive wording or grammar is worth checking on.
I think it is kind of ridiculous to challenge, try or examine a man, you have never met in your entire life, just because you think or suspect he may be fraternal. Before I became a brother, I was at a church convention, wherein I was leading a Bible study and afterwards, an elderly gentleman walked up to me and asked.....Something tells me you are a traveling man.....working in advertising sales, all I could answer with was.....Yep, I travel a lot for work. Challenges and attempts at examination, should not be as easily shared aloud, as they sometimes are.
