Three Master Masons met and were talking over conditions at their Lodges.
The first Master said, “You know, since summer started, I’ve been having trouble with mice in my Lodge. I’ve tried everything – noise, cat’s spray – nothing seems to scare them away.
The second Master said, “Yeah, my Lodge too. There are hundreds of them living in the Lodge basement. I’ve set traps and even called in an expert exterminator. Nothing has worked so far.”
The third Master said, “I’ve had the same problem. So I initiated all mine and made them members of the Lodge. Haven’t seen one of them since.”
