San Patricio

I dedicate this exvoto to the adorable and talented Cassandra Peterson. Her beloved character Elvira, Mistress of the Dark is the best example of a strong, funny, sexy and intelligent woman.

I dedicate this exvoto to Saint Patrick for the excellent tv-series “Breaking Bad”. This Vince Gilligan’s creation is a drama filled with emotions. It got me from the first episode, and it rightly became one of the best tv-series in the television history.

I used to wok as a taxi driver at the Los Angeles airport, California. One day I was waiting for a passenger and saw, with excitement, Elvis Presley arriving in his limousine. When he got out his car I saw his wallet falling off and he didn’t notice. I went to pick it up and gave it back. I thank Saint Patrick because, for this good deed, my rock idol gave me a photo with his autograph which I still keep.

I dedicate this retablo to Saint Patrick thanking him for being able to make hole in one, and thus win the Regional Golf Tournament. I’d injured my shoulder, and everyone had been telling I wouldn’t play again on professional level. I feel so happy to come back with such a great victory.

Casimiro Garcia went to gather wood and saw a flying saucer. He entrusted himself to Saint Patrick whom he thanks with this retablo for protecting him so nothing bad happened with him or his donkey. He only pissed his pants out of fear.
