Shook hands, gave him a a brief tour of my stomach, sent him back out the way he came.... On more than one occasion. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/thirsty.gif /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif

When I came for my job interview here 20 years ago, they were so impressed with me, the Supervisor said HIRAM. And I am still here.
Does that count?

When there are secret handshakes involved, I tend to stay away. Not too much can be gained in a consensus or in the main population by people holding secrets they don't even understand. My 2 worth.

Ok, just trying to see how many of our forum members are Master Masons or Shriners. I personally owe the Shriners a great debt because they repaired by badly burned hand when I was a small boy. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/angel.gif

funny thing just happened to me.... totally unrelated to the meaning of this thread, but it has it's tie in... In my world it does anyways... /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif

I got an email from Hiram, and apparently he thinks I should be investing my money in some company that expects to see a 400% increase in their stock value this week..............

Hiram Grayson... yeah... not the same guy... but I saw the name Hiram on an email and I instantly through of this thread... *snicker*

funny how the mind works sometimes, isn't it? /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/tongue.gif

Sorry to those who are Bretheren, but I just saw this thread.

Past Master (twice) of Blue Lodge, York KT & Scottish 32, Shriner, Swords of Bunker Hill, ROJ and a few other odds and ends.

another of the mysteries ...

Paul - how the heck did you stumble on this thread which hadn't been used since 2006 ????

You really need to update your browser more often, if you're traveling from the East :smile:

Old Tinster is pretty good with cutting marble and stone,
laying brick, block and tiles. That by deffinition is masony.

Did a bunch of 4-wheeling across the sands in Egypt
with the Mrs a few years ago.

But don't know no secret handshakes.

My old college fraternity had a secret handshake, but I sure would not remember it. That was my only "secret society" in my life, but the food was sure better than the college dining hall.

I just saw a whole big thing on Freemasonry on the History channel. Very intersesting, but I don't think I'll be shaking hands with Hiram Abiff (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hiram_Abiff)

I took a HomeDepot class and tiled my kitchen, both bathrooms and my front atrium ... does that count?
