    I don't mean to brag, but I have to say there's something special about my Lodge. During the degrees, you walk on the same flooring and sit in the same chairs Brethren have for over a Century. During a "search of the Temple" our old wooden floor rumbles like thunder and I think back on how many Brothers over the years have heard the same sound. It's a warm place to be. A place to escape the hustle and bustle of our daily lives. Those old wooden chairs, which are worn on one side, provide a memorial to the countless Knight Templars whose swords left their mark. I just wanted to share a little tibit on how I feel about my old Lodge building. Feel free to share your thoughts about your Lodge.

    I love the way that lodge looks, Blake. It has such a warm tone to it (and not just because of the picture). One quick question-- are those light bulbs or actual burning tapers?

    Just seeing the pic makes me want to walk taller as a Mason, I could only imagine the power of actualy working in the Lodge. You have a great Lodge Brother Blake.

    Blake,

    I toured your Lodge several years ago during the "Come and Take It" celebration and had the chance to visit with a PM who was just as proud as you are of what y'all are doing and what you have. I certainly understand. When I was installed as WM in Caledonia Lodge, I was in the same Lodge Room, wearing the same jewel, and sitting in the same chair as my great-grandfather, grandfather, and father. That my dad placed the jewel on me was also moving.

    Those of us who have experienced the true "family" that is small-town Masonry know that what we've experienced is truly special. (not meant to detract from some of the fantastic "city" Lodges that I've seen and/or joined).

    This is a beautiful shot but how do you play HUGE chess on the floor?
