    Were you ever tempted or just never interested?

    I've got my dad and grampa's apron, my dads bible. A bunch of cuff links and pins, and over the years used to look thru and contemplate it. I've performed at some old temples/lodges and we would pull down the stage fly's and imagine the ceremonies for the various backdrops.

    But you guys know me and pomp and circumstance and bowing to authority.... I never fully considered it because I didn't want my actions to reflect badly on those that brought me aboard.

    Unfamiliar with the realities of masonic ceremonies and hierarchies, but still trying to imagine you in such a setting, I had to smile.

    Lol, same reason I didn't join the service...almost did but the thought of not being able to say 'take this job and shove it!' Was just way to much for me.
