Stockings

Bro. John and Bro. Mike are getting dressed and ready for a lodge meeting. When John takes his apron out of the case, Mike notices a pair of silk stockings unrolling and hanging out of the case.
Mike asks: “I say, John, what′s this with the ladies stuff?”

John gives a quick look and whispers: “You remember the installation meeting last year?”
Mike acknowledges and John goes on: “Keep it a secret, but on the way home I stopped at the pub where I met this lovely woman. Apparently she lost her stockings in my car, and my wife found them. I told my wife I was passed to a higher degree, and ever since she takes ′m out of the case washes them and puts them back in with my gloves!”
