Since Southern California is the land of make-believe, we have decided to celebrate our new life by remaking our personas.
Rusti shall henceforth be known as Dusty, since the red hair she was nicknamed for no longer exists. No, she isn't bald, although that would be amusing. She now has a full head of gloriously gray hair which she refuses to color any longer. Yes, it does make her look 20 years older but she's just so darn stubborn and has made up her mind. So Dusty it is.
Kathy shall be known as Kate, but will answer to just about anything. Kate is much more outgoing and adventurous than Kathy, plus she has a much better figure.
Malcolm is and shall remain simply Malcolm. If you knew him, you'd understand.
