i don't have as much money as i "should" have, but i still live very comfortably, thanks to the oil/gas/hydrocarbons/offshore business.
in my dad's younger days, he met my mom in Monterrey Mexico, got her pregnant with my older brother and then headed north into Texas in a semi truck.
all 3 of his sons were Texas born, he's 63 years old and still fitting pipe at the plants, is in zero debt and owns 4 acres of land....
and here's the kicker: he's got a mechanical engineering degree from mexico
he still thought that he could provode for his children and raise a family more comfortably in Houston
cool man, ex-cia here. 'merica, fuck ya!
