[Please come to The Porch this Saturday night in SLC. Jolyn promises to give a 25-second hug to anyone who wants one. Find info here.]

I think I am the most tired any person could be. This long week is finally coming to the end for me after a few very intense and long meetings and one significant court appearance this afternoon for the sweet client who passed away earlier this year. There is a 92% chance I will fall asleep tonight and stay in bed until November 21st. I'm going to pass out a sign-up sheet for you each to take turns stopping by to feed me and switch out my bed pan. I'm handing it to The Suzzzzzzzzzzzz first and expect she'll proceed to pass it through all of the Strangers in order of height and age.

It is the very least you people could do. Don't make me have to lecture and guilt trip you. I have a very large picture of Jesus ready to show you if needs be.

And now, your Pictures and Distractions:

The crew at Arches, with Delicate Arch in the background.

Matthew. Screaming. 

Matthew finding inspiration from Delicate Arch.

Anna took this picture of the rest of us looking annoyed at the children playing under one arch. I especially love the look on Wade's face. I assume he's upset that he wasn't invited to join.
My hair is getting to be Texas big. Alicia explained on the Instagrams "The taller the hair, the closer to God. Tease it to Jesus!"
