I'm from Zacatecas. I work doing yards. I haven't stopped working. I've been retired for 12 years. I retired at 72. I don't drive anymore. I haven't for about 10 years. I go to the store on San Fernando and I exercise on the way up. Right now I'm on my way to exercise and then I'm going to mass at Trinity.
