  1. Wow, that WMs chair is worth the starting bid alone! Unfortunately I'm out in California and am pretty sure that doesn't qualify as "Local Pickup" ~Kevin Hyder, Irvine Valley #671 GL-CA


Comments will not appear immediately, so be patient. I am forced to laboriously screen every post because I am constantly bombarded with spam. Anonymous postings on Masonic topics have the same status as cowans and eavesdroppers as far as I am concerned. If you post with an unknown or anonymous account, do not expect to see your comment appear.
