Pictures from my Phone & Weekly Distractions

Jolyn returned to the United States of God Bless America and a few days ago I FINALLY got to see her.

Jolyn: Eli Whittle McCann. WHY have you insisted on sharing pictures of Tami on Stranger?

Eli: Because she's pretty!

Jolyn: People should be able to sue you over this. I'm not kidding. SUE you.

Eli: Shhhhh! She can hear you!

Jolyn: And she always pops up when we least expect her. If you insist on showing Tami pictures, AT LEAST include a warning.

So . . . WARNING: This post contains Tami pictures.

And now, for the five of you who are still here, your Pictures and Distractions: (Please feel free to follow me on Instagram where I do NOT share very many pictures of Tami. Or join us on Facebook. Or just go back to your cats wearing clothes website you were looking at before this one.)

We're making progress. She was willing to BE in a picture with me. That's progress. Right?

My sticky note system in the office is getting out of control.

This is when Tami had a mullet. DON'T TELL HER I POSTED THIS.

And I recently found this rare photo of a bad incident Tami experienced in the 80's when a chicken got caught in her hair.

Rebecca continues to destroy my home.

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

The suitsy! Thanks, Amy.

The worst cat. Thanks, Maria.

Kids are freaking weird. Thanks, Magan.

Find the invisible cow. Thanks, Rachel.

  1. Invisible Cow is the best, my boss is officially hooked on it, and now I can get away with murder for the rest of the work day. Thanks!

  2. What is the candle oven thing that makes your house smell good??

    1. The wick in this candle I had burned all the way down but there was still a ton of wax in there so I scooped it out and put it into a sauce pan. When I turn it on low my house smells like Christmas.

    2. put some water, a sliced orange, a stick of cinnamon, and some whole cloves in a saucepan, PUT IT ON LOW and it'll really make your place smell good! But don't eat it...K?

  3. They do make these. One setting only. No smoke problems :)

    1. Okay never mind that. I don't know how to delete this. But that link goes no where.

    2. I'm on a link to nowhere....

  4. I love that your niece is in the picture with you...refusing to smile. What did you do to that kid??

  5. Why on earth are you using T-Mobile, Eli? I thought you were a rich lawyer. I'm on T-Mobile, but only because it's the cheapest.

  6. So I smashed my finger really bad last week. When the nail falls of will it look like Tami? I think He ans Tami will be really good friends

  7. I don't have a Tammy, I have a Bertha, she was my 12 pound 8 ounce tumor!

  8. Stuck in Heathrow airport on day 2 trying to get a flight home. Perfect distractions to inject some humor into the otherwise stressful morning.
