I’d hoped for a larger haul, but was happy to pick up the 2013 GMY Jambo set and the 1950’s era TMR Staff neckerchiefs.

Look Back – Ty-Ohni Lodge #95 ZF1 Elangomat Flap

In honor of the Seneca Waterways TOR which occurred earlier today, we take a look back at a post from April 2007 on the Ty-Ohni Lodge #95 ZF1 Elangomat Flap.

According to Rob’s message, this was amongst several items returned to the lodge which had been missing.

It turns out, that rather than a painted design,  the patch was hand-embroidered that would change the description to: ZF1 RED C WHT DGR ELG; crude hand-embroidery on canvas.

“Do not blame Caesar, blame the people of Rome who have so enthusiastically acclaimed and adored him and rejoiced in their loss of freedom and danced in his path and gave him triumphal processions. … Blame the people who hail him when he speaks in the Forum of the ‘new, wonderful good society’ which shall now be Rome’s, interpreted to mean ‘more money, more ease, more security, more living fatly at the expense of the industrious.'” –Roman statesman Marcus Tullius Cicero (106-43 B.C.)
