The not so hidden costs of "appointments."

A few nights ago, my husband shared with me that he "would not be surprised" if he was appointed to a "prestigious" position by one of his friends. My first question, as it is every time he says something like this, was "What does this entail?".

"Only four meetings a Las Vegas." Translated into reality: four plane tickets and how many nights lodging, meals, and entertainment?

We had a frank discussion about how we have only one pocket for all this to come out of. We're trying to save for retirement. My spending is often criticized as being excessive or unnecessary, but he does not see the Masonic expenses in the same light.

I think he got it, we'll see.
