Ready for 2nd Degree

by John Paul Gomez October 21, 2011

A little before Lodge is about to open an old man totters up to the
Tyler and says, "I"m here to receive my 2nd degree."
Well, they all look at this guy, who really is older than dirt, and
they ask him to explain.
"I was entered on July 4, 1922. Now I"m ready for my 2nd degree."
So they go scurrying for the records, and sure enough, there was
his name, entered on July 4, 1922.
"Where have you been all these years? What took you so long to be
ready for your 2nd?" they ask.
He replied: "I was learning to subdue my passions!"
