The cabin is a comforting place....a place where history seems to repeat itself. I took this photo of the Grandson on our patio. Prepare yourself for cuteness.

We are multitudinous gratitudinous. We had a fine time savoring the mountains and counting our blessings for salvation from the (too close) monstrous fire. Our prayers continue for the city of Colorado Springs and for those so devastatingly affected by the fire.

No chipmunk got within a half mile of us!
Blessed salvation love to all.
