rat is the first one on the left...i'm thinking more "bulldog"...but i'm sure he scored this incredible nickname in his youth and god, how i wish i knew why.
thanks to C for forwarding this photo to the wife. i am thrilled to have a face for that name!
i'd also like to state for the record that i am sure rat is a lovely person and it seems he is an involved and caring citizen in his community. i mean no disrespect to his character...only that ri-donk-u-lous name.
