Four Corners

Rusted doorSquare.

What a word.

From Vulgar Latin exquadra (how vulgar indeed).

According to trusty Webster.

The word evolved to Old French esquarre.

Remember Four Square?

What a game.

The square.

What a place.

Not every town has one.

Nor do they have Square Plate.

One of the restaurants in town.

You can get a square meal there.

And it’s served on square plates.

Bratwurst, schnitzel, kraut, cabbage.

Turkey and dressing.

Pot roast.

Sandwiches, burgers, salads.

Bread pudding and brownies.

Cheesecake, tarts.

Cakes and pies.

Especially an unforgettable bourbon pecan pie.

Oh my.

They join three other eateries on the square.

Willow Creek Café.

Santos Taqueria.

And Topaz Confections.

If you want something catered, call Sisters Catering.

They’ll get you squared away.

The square.

Amazing we can go a-round one.

Square dancers also go round and round.

Circle left, circle right.

Swing that gal with all your might.


You can bet a square shooter is on the square.

He’ll look a fella square in the eye.

Ready to square off for another round.

Or go back to square one.

Mark the square on your calendar.

Mason County Chamber of Commerce.

Also located on the square.

Holding its annual Wild Game Dinner.

Saturday, November 14 at 6 p.m.

South of town off Hwy 87.

Turn left into Mason Community Park.

Head straight back.

Be there.

Or be square.

That’s Mason.
