Today’s House call turned up some interesting items!!!

Went on a great house call today and purchased two Ceremonial Odd fellows Coffins a double hoof lamp and a large taxidermy rattlesnake!!!

The Odd Fellows’ initiation ceremony involved a blindfolded candidate, draped in chains, led to a place where the blindfold was removed and he found himself in flickering torchlight, face to face with a skeleton. This was an invitation to contemplate one’s own mortality, and a way to underscore the seriousness of staying current with dues.
