Surely I can’t be the only person who noticed the similarity of the App Store icon to the Masonic emblem.
Speaking of Freemasonry, I’m trying to find if anyone I know is a member so that I can inquire about joining. My grandfather was a Master Mason; he wanted me to get involved when I was younger but I never had the time.
One of the things I inherited from him (other than the money that paid for my college education) was this Masonic watch fob. I had been in line to also inherit his Masonic ring, but some unscrupulous “friends” of his talked him into rewriting his will in their favor when he wasn’t of sound mind towards the end.
October 2008 Update: After some inquires and then an application, investigation, and voting process I was elected to receive the degrees of Masonry. On October 9th, 2008, I was initiated as an Entered Apprentice Mason at Gray Lodge #329 here in Houston.
February 2010 Update: On September 29th, 2009, I was Passed to the degree of Fellow Craft. On November 5th, 2009, I was Raised to the Sublime Degree of Master Mason.
