THE CHRONICLES OF FURTHERMORE, THE MASONIC RAVEN Being, for the most part, adventures in pet care, bartending and brotherhood with a boy and his bird, recounted by the late Wor. Bro. Skip Boyer, P.M. Paradise Valley Silver Trowel Lodge No. 29, Free and Accepted Masons of Arizona, who passed away on May 27, 2006. These are his words:

The ancient and honorable fraternity of Freemasons has attracted the best and brightest men of every generation to its philosophy and teachings. Kings, princes, potentates and leading thinkers, teachers and philosophers have all worn the Square and Compasses of Freemasonry with honor, dignity and humility.

It was only a matter of time, then, before something like this would happen.

I have a pet raven named Nevermore. He lives in a great cavern below my home and I've been chronicling his adventures for a select group of friends for many years. Well, it turns out that Nevermore has a cousin, Furthermore, who, through a strange quirk of fate, was initiated into the ancient Craft of Freemasonry. I know how careful we are to guard the West Gate. This was a freak occurrence, which is explained in more detail than you probably want later on.

Since then, Furthermore has taken up residence in the great caverns with Nevermore, a nine-headed hydra I employ to guard the bridge over the underground river, several Things that show up when needed and I don't know what all else. And because Furthermore is now my Masonic-pet-raven-brother (All right. You figure out the relationship!), I'm happy to have him. Oh. There is also a bat named Everafter. We don't see a lot of him.

Anyway, these are the tales of Furthermore and the crowd that lives below my home in the ancient stone caverns. There's not much Light down there, but we do have a good deal of fun - all in the spirit of brotherhood. Welcome, Brothers! Get a grip on your aprons. Here we go!

To all Lodge Trestle Board editors: Feel free to use any of the tales of Furthermore. Should you choose to do so, however, we deny any responsibility for actions by your own lodge. If, after the first couple of columns, the brethren appear restless and begin to surge toward you as you enter the lodge room, we suggest you flee and deny any connection with Furthermore.
