I was born in East Los Angeles. Like most kids of that day I grew up in the gangs, ended up learning things the hard way. Went on to serve 9 years in the U.S. Army Infantry. Joined the Knights of Columbus and attained the rank of Sir Knight, and in my council attained the rank of deputy Grand Knight. And 3 years as a RED CROSS Director of Disaster Services. Today I am proud to Command the finest Chapter of Brown Berets in the country. I have two sons Tony, and Jesse, and a daughter Brandi "Bambi" which I am so very proud of them ALL. I guess you can say I am truelly BLESSED! Tito I know you would be so PROUD of them also, there a great bunch of kids. I hope that you are somewhere looking down on us still protecting us and looking out for us ALL, the Familia YOU started ,guided, and kept together so long, you made it look so easy Tito. And I hope your smiling and very proud of us ALL, we love you and still need you. Because the Familia has never or will we never have Captain at the wheel like you. You will remain in our hearts and minds for many generations and your shinning example will continue to lead the way for this Familia.
What made you move to Lancaster? I have seen pictures of that area and they are gorgeous. Are you still in the gang? That doesn't surprise me that you are a Brown Beret. I was on the DAT Team under the Red Cross for 6 years but because I'm unable to drive, I couldn't go any higher than which I did so I got bored and quit.
Well, my daughter, Megan is now 16 years old. I've been having trouble with her rebellion. I'm at a loss of what to do and feel like a failure as a mom. But I do still have the support of my family, friends and church so that has helped a lot.
I don't get on the computer as much as I used to. It's not because I don't want to, it's because this computer I've got (I've had it since 2002) is dying. The sound card and video cards have already died. The two printers I've used with it have died. Every few seconds I get a message on the taskbar that the virtual memory is low so no program will work correctly. I had a book written but my computer crashed so I lost all of it. The CD/DVD drive and disk drives don't work anymore. Keep a check on Lulu.com for my name, I'm working on a book of my poems and shortstories. It'll only be 37 pages or so, for $5.17. I get $2.50 of that. *LOL* An IT friend told me to expect this computer to only last another month or so, if it will last that long because the harddrive is dying.
I'm never on MySpace anymore. Each time I go to load a profile, my computer freezes up. I am on Facebook but only every other day or so. My computer freezes up on that too. Mostly what I do is check my email, reply to them (I very rarely send out forwards anymore because I can't send out anything that has pictures or video on it since my computer won't work any of it.) and try to check my Facebook. About once weekly I get on Ology.com to play.
I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia not long ago. Although the doctor said that I've been suffering from it for the last 10-15 years. My mom has Alzhiemers so I take care of her on Sundays to give my dad a break. My dad had hernia surgery on Thursday so I've mainly been spending time over there because of that. Megan took the PSAT test this morning, I'm so proud of her doing that. :D Oh yeah, I'm still single. I haven't had a date in years. My friend, Laura and I play Scrabble about three or four times weekly. We've gotten so good at it that we're thinking about going into a tournament. :D *hehehe*
