Di Porque...

My grandmother celebrated her 90th birthday today. I've always wondered how well Mexicans hold up as they age older while whites are senile almost upon reaching their 70th year. Although my grandmother has lived nine decades, she acts like someone in her 70s--her memory is impeccable, her eyesight well, although her legs are now giving her problems and she says nothing sits well in her stomach. Then again, it is hard to believe the final comment, as my grandmother is too proud of a woman to admit that anything is to her liking.

Some of the family was there. And let's leave it at that.
