and unfortunately not for good reason. My dad is really ill and has been in the hospital for a week and a half. The boys and I drove out last Tuesday. We've loved spending time with him --- and seeing him improve. Wish he were back home right now looking out his own windows (or any window for that matter). I've taken many pictures and have much to write about but right now we're just very tired so here's a photo from last night's fire. One of the wonderful things my Dad has given our family is this place.
