Hi Ruff (soon to be RW.Bro Ruff)
All I can say is congratulations! I really wish I could be there with you, I will of course raise a glass and drink a toast to your health,wealth and happiness for the coming 12 months.
You signed up for MFoL on 11/02/04 exactly 2 months before me! I believe you were one of the first ten to defect from TFM when Lee first started this Forum in protest against the lack of tolerance towards the so called esoteric side of masonry, things change of course!
You are the 6th most prolific poster even with you taking a sabbatical for some time! It has been a great pleasure having your company on this Forum, you have been a great member and also a great example of how to cross swords using your tongue (pen!) as your only weapon.
I have enjoyed your comments immensely, thank you for that!
I hope you have a great Installation!
There is nothing more easy than to come to the gate of truth; there is nothing more difficult than to enter it. This applies to most of the wise of this world.
Ruff Ashlar - Congratulations and All the very Best - Like Middlepillar We all joined MFOL at the very start when Staffs took a stand against esoteric intolerance - in a Forum (which has now seen the light). I always enjoy your posts and thoroughly enjoy and respect your Forum Companionship. (and your intellect) I wish you well for your year in the Chair
All the very best HGW

Good luck for later on. The best part for me was definitely the Master's Song.
