    Good morning, Vagabonds.

    Alex, that was a very interesting video. The men in my family have been Masons for a very long time. All of the men for several generations back were Masons, and my mother, aunts and grandmothers were either Job’s Daughters or Rainbow Girls and all were Eastern Star. My dad, especially, was deeply involved – a patron of the Demolay for more than 50 years, 33rd degree, Scottish & York Rite shrines, patron of Eastern Star and the two girls groups. He was even a Knight Templar for the last few years of his life. Unfortunately, neither my brothers nor I were ever exposed to any of it, consequently none of us ever joined any part of it. I regret that greatly, considering how much joy and satisfaction it gave our Dad.

    Arye, thank you again for the Chanukah information. Happy Chanukah!

    Low 50’s this morning with an intermittant drizzle. It made the walk today very interesting. We stuck to the paved paths today and avoided the muddy graveled ones.

    Off to the post office today to mail a few things. I think I will take my book with me.

    Considering that in prior years the running joke was that their tree was uneven, missing branches, dropped needles all over the place and usually caught fire (outside), the joke is that they are choosing an artificial tree just like their real ones.

    So the early Christian popes decided to use the holiday already being celebrated as a commemoration of the birth of our Savior. So what? This season is the celebration of Jesus’ birth. The fact that it used to be something else is irrelevant, as is the fact that He was probably born in the springtime, not in December. Again, so what? We choose to celebrate it now, whenever it happened.

    Ha, ha. In my neighborhood, the person whose mailbox in which the letter ended up would walk it to the front door of the addressee. All that work for nothing.

    She has no idea what a “June Cleaver dress” would be. Certainly not what she has on.

    A sad commentary.

    Grandpa Jim became such a wonderful addition to the strip in later years. As carrman510 said, it’s nice to see him here in his slightly younger years.

    Good morning, Vagabonds.

    Not much on the agenda for today except my usual Tuesday fellowship luncheon (which usually lasts until somewhere between 4 and 5 PM).

    Still hovering in the 50’s around here. Brisk and pleasant.

    Rex Morgan The Comics Curmudgeon (joshreads.com) has links to a couple of old strips that show Becka and her husband Peter 5 1/2 years ago when he hired a pretty new nutritionist and she was jealous and suspicious. I knew RM took a long time to develop a story line, but 5 1/2 years????

    So why in a strip about John LeCarre, do we have a drawing of Richard Burton?
