Happy Friday, all. Tomorrow night (Saturday) we'll be at The Porch here in Salt Lake City. The show starts at 9:00 PM (DON'T WORRY! IT'S NOT A SCHOOL NIGHT!). I hope to see some of you there. Tickets and info link is here. Also, here's the Facebook link in case you want to see a very awkward picture of me from a prior show.
And now, your Pictures and Distractions:

My love/hate relationship with my niece continues as she refuses to talk to me while waiting in a line at a local theme park.

I brought home this beautiful piece of furniture last weekend. 

My backyard ain't so bad. Ah, Salt Lake City.

My painting from L'viv is framed!

With the love/hate niece on a kid-friendly roller coaster.
