A Quote from Winne the Pooh?

What is a quote from Winnie the Pooh doing in a blog that is mainly Masonic in nature? Well, noted Masonic author and speaker, Skip Boyer, has made an argument (tongue in cheek, I trust) that Winnie the Pooh is a Mason.

With that preface, let me confess that yesterday, I turned 60 years. I had a very nice day with many of my family members.

And, as a present, Patty gave me a plaque with a quote from Winnie the Pooh:

"If you live to be a hundred, I want to live to be a hundred minus one day, so I never have to live without you."

Having reached this advanced age gives me pause to consider my mortality. And considering the Wisdom of Pooh, I agree with my gift: I would choose to live one day - and only one day - longer than my love.
