Old Tiler Talks

 

I have discovered these gems floating around the Internet and have always been inspired by the words of wisdom from the "Old Tiler" all written by Carl H. Claudy around 1924.  I hope you enjoy them.

I have seen many of the personality traits of "The Old Tiler" in many of the Masons I have met.  Lets play a game.  Every time you read one of these stories, try to imagine who in your Lodge would give the same advice in the same manner.  Perhaps I need a life, but I find this entertaining and I really do enjoy this collection of stories.

Perhaps, somewhere in your distant past, you even knew the New Brother always referred to in these stories.  See if you can pin-point him too.
