The holidays are a busy time of the year, and sadly, I didn't have anything prepared this morning, so I thought I'd post a few photos I had on my phone. I talk a lot on here, and the Midnight Freemasons talk a lot on that blog, about the more serious aspects of the Fraternity. However, there is a lighter side as well as these few photographs show. I've been fortunate to have made many great friends in the fraternity, and it's not all serious and somber--there's a great deal of fellowship and fun as well. Many of these feature my good friend William J. Hussey our Illinois Royal Arch Most Excellent Grand High Priest. He takes most of the credit for my success as a Masonic writer and scholar, however, I would point out that when I met Bill, he was merely "Illustrious" and not "Most Excellent."
