Oil on panel

The disco days were fun. That was in the 70s. I bought every record that had to do with a hit. Me and my wife went to LA in 1999 to the biggest dance competition they had there. I was proud to win. Two Mexican people… we won $10,000 and a big trophy. Me and my wife became homeless together. I had to panhandle… it’s not something I like doing but I had to do it in order to feed my girl. I've been sober for 3 months and I'm proud of it. I would say to others... take the life that you have, take it to heat, do what you can with it. Don't let nobody talk you into doing a drug that's going to make you feel like a different person. Cause you already are what you are. I'm 59… but you're never too old to learn something new.
