May 2019 Trestleboard

Wausau Trestleboard
May 2019

I’ve learned from personal experience a few irrefutable truths in life:

  • I’ve  learned if my son Frank pulls out an earbud when I walk into the room–it’s the ultimate sign of respect
  • I’ve  learned  when you’re overweight, every day is leg day
  • I’ve  learned the phrase “Potato-potato. Tomato-tomato” looks absolutely stupid in print
  • I’ve  learned telling your mom or your wife to calm down is like trying to baptize a cat
  • I’ve learned to make sure my kids draw and color cute pictures on Mother’s day because for some reason mom’s actually put stock in this ‘holiday’ and because it’s a lot cheaper than buying stuff and I somehow still credit for the thought.

In all honesty, I truly do want to wish all the Mom’s out there a great Mother’s Day and thank you for the men you have brought into this world. The truly good men that is Freemasonry. (So, calm down Jean, I am wishing you a happy Mother’s Day too!) So, Brother’s if you can, take an extra moment to hug the mom/moms in your life be it your mom, grandma, your children’s mom, your mother-in-law and thank them.

  • Oh, and I also learned when you say ‘raise up lights’ you’re saying ‘razor blades’ like crocodile Dundee and our Secretary Brother Barry Diehl do, mate.

Cordially and Fraternally
