In case you missed it, we announced our next Strangerville Live show, which will happen March 30 in Salt Lake City. You should get your tickets before they sell out at this link. And then tell Matt how great he did at designing the image for the thing so that he gets so overwhelmed with compliments that he explodes.

BTW, I asked The Suzzzz to send me a picture we could use to advertise. She sent me two. The one we didn't use is one of the most glorious images I've ever seen in my life, but I wanted to save it for a truly special occasion. If you're good, maybe I'll share it with you soon.

And now, your Pictures & Distractions:

A new painting I picked up in Moab.

Played pool; lost 7 games in a row; knocked someone's drink over and onto the pool table; still the closest I've ever come to "sports" success.

If we lost this bone Duncan's heart would immediately stop beating. He carries it with him everywhere he goes, including on every walk.

Mr. Pants got a haircut!

On a bike ride up in the sky.

Crap to distract you from whatever you're supposed to be doing:

Chicken church! Thanks, Sarah.

And some very beautiful chickens. Thanks, Grace.

Funny texts from parents (slight content warning). Thanks, Tyler.

Fascinating article about the earliest photography in America.

This is actually one of the least embarrassing things the Utah State Legislature has done in the last few years. Thanks, many of you.
