    I love the first one, the sales pitch man with his token flag fluttering away and totally disinterested lol… The alabaster plant looked messy Sue… but I loved the heat haze with the palms and the donkey in the foreground, you can almost feel the heat coming out of the picture Sue…
    The telemarketers desert style looked more like a road block… ahahahha…
