The TeePee is a wonderful residence and you've captured the warmth and comfort of it here.
Beautiful work and image, MSSSLala.

Thank You So Much Monnie, John, Tammers, Chrissy, NN Kitty, Wm and SSSKiki!!!

TeePee's are really cool, in fact you guys, SSSKiki and I were in a real one together at HERITAGE PARK, CALGARY (Right Sis???) and it had a fire going in it!!! YES IT WAS HOT IN THERE!!! ANY poor baby could have really overheated as the heat even had our feet warm! It was consuming heat.

At the top ANY real TeePee there is a way to pull back the flap of animal skin or thick tarp with a rope to regulate the heat however.. Like an exhaust pipe or chimney if you will.

Very engenious invention.

Thank You All For The Visit!

Laura, wonderful image.

I have been in a tepee when it is 80f outside and inside with the bottoms slightly rolled up for ventilation, cool and just comfortable. I was amazed #9245863

Hi Tiia! Hi Jo Ann!

Thanks lots ladies!!!

Great choice for a re-submit, Pom!
Sorry about the current unavailability of your Frac. filter. You work such magic with its many variations. Best of luck "getting with the program". #10513992
