Texas Tuesday: Wetback English

Learn Wetback English via video.

On a funny note: years ago, my dad had an illegal alien teenager living with us. He worked for my dad during the days and I taught him English/he taught me some Spanish in the evening. One night Dad was teasing him by calling him a wetback. He responded, "Me no back wet. came on boat!" he he
He was an awesome young man who returned to Mexico, became a police officer and got married. He, his wife and baby were killed in a car accident years ago -

Oh Nomas. A good kid who tried hard -- and was met by tragedy...

What changes ? What revelations ? I hope it makes you feel really good inside/brings you hope, N.,

Sometimes those kind of things hit me hard, yeah, they usually do because it forces my eyes so wide open, but usually it also opens a door somehow... I may not be able to walk through it yet, but I see a crack of light, if that makes sense...

Thinking of you, N.
You'll be back to comment on my blog when you'll be back to comment. Taking care of yourself matters more right now...

I wish the very very best for you --

What kind of steps for change ?

I sold my home and moved 70 miles away seven years ago to give myself a new start... Never regretted it...

That's sad about the kid.
Senseless deaths hurt the worst.

The video was funny though.
