    The first chair I filled was as Inner Guard and then as Senior Deacon. Both in Canada Lodge in Afghanistan. We are so short on MM that it is nothing for a brother to show up to his first meeting and be a warden or deacon.

    My Mother Lodge has the strange idea that the line should begin with...


    Chaplain.

    My first chair in one Lodge, my last in the other.

    well, after two consecutive years in the East.

    I expect my position to be fetal ... with excessive thumb-sucking.

    Been there, done that. But officially my position for the year of decompression after the two consecutive in the east was listed as "Tiler" ... Chortle.

    That's a nice detail of Texas ritual not present everywhere. I offered to relieve the Tiler the first time I saw a Texas ballot. A bit later I saw why my offer was declined and I chuckled at myself.

    I just volunteered to take on the Treasurer seat. Am I crazy?

    We don't accept crazy guys. We make ourselves crazy after taking our degrees. Chortle. My craziness was going through the progressive line twice. Once the superglue on your seat has lasted two passes through the line, you will have ended up crazier than me. See it as an extreme accomplishment I suggest ...
