Lon Saves Betsy Ross To Our History Books

That’s right!  Lon actually saved Betsy Ross, the acclaimed seamstress who allegedly created our first American flag to our history books forever.  As with all stories of rescue, no one individual can be responsible for the entire adventure. My adventure starts at the age of 4, back in the city of Yonkers, New York and spans two centuries.  While taking a short cut along the Hudson River on my way back to my hotel returning from a meeting in New York, I past an old building lurking on my right. As I passed this structure, I had a flashback, a glimpse of a fleeting memory. This glimpse was similar to the level of recall you have when waking after a deep sleep and struggle to recall your dream, by grabbing little bits and pieces of wisps’ of thought here and a mental image there…  Lon tells the story of how a chance meeting lead to this amazing outcome.Lon’s book, “Gratuitous Serendipity” is available on Amazon where you can read all of Lon’s amazing stories or you can read the story here!

Lon Finds Grave Of First Black Landowner In America

Lon actually found, deep in an overgrown forest of New England, the very first African American land owner ever in America!  It was a late autumn afternoon in upstate New York. The air was fresh and crisp, the sun was shining, and the leaves rustled under your feet while you walked.  It was Sunday, my chores where done, and I had an afternoon to explore the countryside. I always liked to explore in the fall. When the leaves have fallen from the trees, it was easier to see the clues of a society no longer with us in New York. The farmer.  If you are careful to look beyond the forest and beyond the tree, you might just see a fieldstone wall, or better yet, parallel fieldstone walls. This usually meant an abandoned road. If you look closely at the average age of the trees, you can often identify a strip of younger trees of less than 100 years old, winding it’s way through a forest of older stand trees of oak, maple, and ash…Lon’s book, “Gratuitous Serendipity” is available on Amazon where you can read all of Lon’s amazing stories or you can read the story here!

Lon Is Asked To Participate In A 10,000 Year Old LaCoda Ceremony

Here’s Lon’s story of how he particiated in a 10,000 year old Navaho sweat. As I backed my blazer from my driveway, it was still very dark. It was pre-dawn. I noticed that the air was cool with dew. I felt the moisture on my skin. I realized how unusual this was for the southwest. It was obvious that the summer months have waned and the cooler, more pleasant months of winter were close at hand.  I ventured out into that pre-dawn. night, as I calculated my journey from the Phoenix area to the heart of northern Arizona’s Navajo Nation’s reservation, or the Res as it is often referred to in the southwest. This journey was one that would encompass several hundred miles and place me in the the Res around 10:00 AM, if I hurried.  As I drove off into the night I wondered what was in store for me over the next eight to ten hours. Why was there so much mystery surrounding this Sweat? I continued to go over and over in my mind the little information that was shared with me the week before…Lon’s book, “Gratuitous Serendipity” is available on Amazon where you can read all of Lon’s amazing stories or you can read the story here!
