I thank God because on July 26, 2006 The Dogs of Evil won. Mr. Aguilla, El Terrible and my favorite The Son of the Dog Aguaya performed a master fight against El Mistico, Negro Casas and Rey Bucanero. They showed who rules at the Arena Mexico, although they weren’t favorites. “The Dogs don’t forgive”. I won the bet to my girlfriend because we both love wrestling.

I dedicate this ex-voto to the Holy Heart of Jesus thanking for my wife never found out the truth why I had a heart attack. I used to spy at nights on my sister-in-law when she went to sleep. She stripped herself down and took photos with her phone. I was so turned on my heart couldn’t take it anymore. Now I’m fine, and I don’t regret. I enjoyed it all and no one will take it from me because this damn broad is hot.

Holy Heart, I thank you because my husband never found out that I used to get out quietly from the bed while he was sleeping very deeply and went to my brother-in-law’s room when he was visiting us. I ask for forgiveness since the flesh is weak and his youth made me feel the pleasure of being loved again. I fell into the sin because I felt forgotten by my husband when I really needed the love.

Miraculous Lord of the Column, we, Aido Salcido and my beloved Rocio Gonzalez, thank you for all your help. Yes, we are different and aren’t quite understood by others, but have nothing to hide. Now we live together and it seems that our families and the people begin to understand us.

I thank the Virgin of Juquila for the viagra, so my painful illness went away and I could satisfy my wife in bed. Since no medicine had helped me before, I entrusted myself to you and tried the viagra. We’re very happy now, and our marriage is saved.
