ON THE BACK BURNER

April 21

I was stopped at a traffic light and I looked over at the license plate of the car to my left and a little ahead of me. The case that frames the plate said Eastern Star. I hadn't thought of the Eastern Stars in many years. My Daddy was a "Grand Master" of his Masonic Lodge and I think the women's end of it was the Eastern Stars. Very gentile, I think. I supposed he couldn't get my Mother to join, so I remember going to the girls group called, if I remember correctly, The Rainbow Girls.I vaguely remember a ceremony with candles and standing in a line, which they called a processional. I never heard that word before. I'm blank after that, so I guess I wasn't destined to be a life time member. Funny how one word just makes a memory flash into your mind. I would love to be able to bring up other memories. Some good, some not so good about growing up.

Don't quite know how this got to me but it was on the top line of my computer (not in email) But I really enjoyed it. I truly admire you.
