Dayton Masonic Center – Lots of Photos

Many years ago, I would visit the Dayton Masonic Temple, as it was known, for Rainbow events. We were only ever allowed on the first and basement. The top floors were off limits and forbidden because we were girls. That was the men’s area.

Not a Typical Winter – mid January to early February

I wish I could truly show you all of the snow we’ve had since mid January. The amount is at or above our usual average amount of snow. Usually we get a total of around 16 inches.

Did you know the band R.E.O. Speedwagon was named after the Oldsmobile company? I can’t remember the exact story of why they chose the name. However, that tidbit of information was interesting to me.

Where I’m From

Before I begin my post this was a Writer’s Workshop idea from almost 2 weeks ago, I was intrigued by the idea so I wrote my own Where I’m From.

I am from lots of tomatoes and bananas because that is what my parents could afford, from the land of Hershey chocolate and the Abigail, my Cabbage Patch doll who still resides in my somewhere in my house.
