So Much More…

Every where we go and everything that happens to us we take something away from. Sometimes it's a little thing and sometimes it's a life changing revaluation. The latter of the two happened to me on the dates of October 18th-20th. As some of you know, my Father, Ronald S. Townsend, Sr. was a Mason,... Continue Reading →

The Parking Lot

It's 11:33 PM. The parking lot asphalt is unforgiving. My feet hurt. I pull my phone out of my pocket and see 4 missed calls and 3 text messages from my better half. She hasn't heard from me since 7 PM, and I'm usually home by now. My phone has been on silent since the... Continue Reading →

They most likely searched the internet and found 2700 (or more)... Continue Reading →

We Took an Oath

Bro. Ronald S. Townsend, Jr. Hello my Brothers! It's been a long while since my last post and because I have something that has been weighing heavily on my mind I thought I would put it onto paper, or on a blog as the case may be. The many who know me know that I... Continue Reading →

Spangler PM To all our readers, I thank you for your patience.  Do to a hectic start to this Masonic year, all of our contributors have been extraordinarily busy.  I'm not sure when we will get back to our more consistent posting but I did want to take this time to talk...
