The Mesquite Toes Tap Team held their annual fashion show on Feb. 11 at the Mesquite Lutheran Church.  Judy Dunker, while modeling the clothes from Have Boutique Will Travel, just couldn’t resist pointing out to the ladies and men the very fashionable ‘bling’ she sported on her right hand, which is also available at the boutique.
