Portland Trip

No, I wasn't initiated into another Masonic group. No, this trip was of Brotherly Love. I traveled the 430-miles to go see my Kappa Sigma Pledge Brother, Rudy, get Raised to the Sublime Degree of Master Mason in Cornerstone Lodge #157 in Portland, OR, last night. I had the pleasure of Raising him. I am very thankful to the Lodge for scheduling this ceremony around my availability.

Rudy and I haven't hung out in many years as he moved away while I was in Iraq and we haven't had a chance to catch up so I was excited when he called me inviting me last month. After the ceremony and refreshments were finished we went over to Friendship Lodge #160 to watch WB Cliff Porter give a presentation. The Master of the Lodge then invited everyone upstairs for refreshments, and if we so chose, cigars. It was a great day for fellowship.

Now I'm back home in Boise and ready for what this next week of Masonry has to bring.
