Three Amigos

DGM John Cook, SGW Tom Hendrickson and I left from Winthrop this morning for Omaha Nebraska and the Midwest Conference of Grand Masters. After an obligatory stop at the Ice Cream Capitol of the World (LeMars, Iowa - home of Blue Bunny), we arrived in Omaha and had a very nice dinner and talk by the Grand Master of Wisconsin, Craig Campbell on the Masonic roots of the founding of the United States. Most interesting as well as entertaining.

I talked my colleagues into a walk through The Old Market in Omaha, to the Dubliner, a basement Irish pub, where the following sign was conspicuously posted:

No Shoes,
No Kilt,
No Service.

Only the Irish ....
