Doss, the Co-Masons have been chasing me for 25 years.  When I was in my
twenties, I had no money for the fees and no car to get to Wheaton.  Twenty
years later, they were ready to initiate me when I backed out.  I couldn't see
myself traveling those dark roads from Wheaton to Chicago, around 1 am,  which
is when the meetings let out.

I've realized that Olcott's Co-Masonry is basically for those who live there or
nearby.  If you have a burning desire to practice Masonry, you'll make
the sacrifice and drive the distance.  

After 24 years of driving, I'm burnt out.  My husband is legally blind and
I have driven him wherever he wants.  When my mother came to live upstairs
from me, she never learned to drive and I drove here anywhere she wanted,
especially when her health was failing.  Who drove me?  Me.  I have been sick
as a dog and driven myself to the doc because their simply is no one else.
Driving?  I do it a little as possible.  For me, a trip on a bus is a big treat.
