Message for the Rocky Mountain Masonic Conference

The Rocky Mountain Masonic Conference opens in Salt Lake City, Utah today.

I promise I wish I was there. Speakers include Thomas W. Jackson, Cliff Porter and David Heathcote. Somebody please take notes for me...

Don't forget the Masonic Society Semi-Annual Meeting begins Saturday afternoon after the Conference ends. Speakers include Pete Normand, Glen Cook, Dr. Jay Williams, Dr. Ken Davis, and Grand Master of Utah, John Liley.

Have a great weekend!

Eat something solid for me. I'm on a strict morphine diet.


  1. Brother Chris,

    We wish you were here as well. We send our prayers for your speedy recovery and we are video taping the conference just for you.. ;) and my friend I kinda like the haircut. Take your time and heal up right. Be good my Brother.

  2. OK. That right there is hilarious.

    You'll be fine. Just keep eating those 3000 calories a day to get your strength back.

    My guess is that that will happen intravenously :)

    We'll miss you at the stated tonight. All good thoughts and prayers sent your way. And Alice's way, too.

  3. Creative touch, Brother Chris, but exactly what we would expect from you.

    Best regards.

    Stephen Quest

  4. Well, I didn't have to go to your extremes to get described as "Uncle Fester," so I do appreciate how old the lightbulb joke gets.

    Here's hoping you are eating something a lot more appealing than stringbeans soon, not that there's anything wrong with stringbeans, as long as they're acompanied by prime rib.

    Really, a lot of folks want to see you up and running as soon as possible.


  5. I'll be praying for your speedy recovery Bro. Hodapp!

  6. Brother Chris,
    I have been praying for you and hope to see something indicating the surgery was a success soon.
    Best wishes,
    Bro. Scott in MA

  7. Take care Brother. Thanks for taking on such a personal challenge with a smile. Our prayers are with you.

    S & F,

    WBro. Kris Stevens

  8. Dear Chris,
