well, now I know for sure that you don't live in Mesquite because worker #1 has one of the most unusual haircuts known to man.

And yes, that hair SHOULD be criminal! He is so handsome (from the unbiased aunt, of course) but that hair makes him look like a hoodlum.

And sheesh, how old do I sound! I never thought I'd be rolling my eyes at the goings-on of the generation right after me.
