A wonderful and interesting birthday giftPosted: February 8, 2016
As you might notice, the lid is embossed with various Masonic symbols. (I could tell you what they all mean … but if you are interested you will find out what they are for yourselves!) I thought that it was just a very nice trinket box for me to keep some of my Masonic memorabilia in … but it was heavy enough to indicate that there was something inside … which there was.
Inside the box was a set of playing cards … but not just any set; it was a set of Masonic playing cards!
Now as regular readers of my blog know – and especially the two friends who sent me this wonderful present – I love using playing cards in my wargames, so here was a present that combined two important aspects of my life; Freemasonry and wargaming. My wife thought that the gift was inspired, and I absolutely agree with her …
… so here’s a massive big thank to Tony and Maxine for your wonderful birthday present!
