Retro Wednesday......




Last week a fraternity brother of mine stopped by the dealership for a test drive. After he was finished he asked me to follow him out to his car, because he had something to give me. To my surprise, he had the 2ftx3ft composite picture that hung in our frat house meeting room. He said that I probably saw more people from the past than he did and asked if I wanted it...Of course I wanted it!
I served and held many different positions in the frat while I attended college, and during this semester I was The Chaplain....Hehehehe...Reverend Galen!!!

Pax Vobiscum...!!!

Great picture, Reverend Galen. I said Reverend. Now I'm going to have to dodge lightning bolts. Maybe I'd better go say a novena. Later, Rev.:-)

I've always wondered why fraternities and other school organizations felt the need to assign someone a "chaplain" role.
