Gonzalez Partida, Carla Marlene English 1302-079 San Miguel ,Claudio Thursday, August fourth, 2011 Cultural Project Carlota Montes Ochoa was born in San Juan de La Montana, Jalisco on October fourth of 1928. She went through a difficult childhood because her father married three times. It was not because he did not love the women, but it was because his wives died; in town he was known as the widow because his wives would not last more than four years. Unfortunately for my grandmother and siblings this made their childhood tough because they had to deal with abusive stepmothers.

She did not know where he was for three months; the longest time of her life. “I could not stop thinking about him.” My grandmother said. When Jose finally returned, they talked through a small hole in the wall because during that time men and women were not allowed to be alone in public unless they were married, so that day he asked her to become his girlfriend.

She has thirty grandchildren, twenty five great grand children and one great grand grand child. When my grandmother was little she enjoyed horse riding and roping cattle. She knew how to milk the cows and was able to make cheese, and cream. Since she lived in a small town, children had different games when they were young. “We used to do pranks on our oldest sister.” My grandmother always says. One time she made them mad so they pulled down her pants in public and their oldest sister started crying. The funniest thing she did when she was young was when her dad brought a bag with piloncillo,* they were not allowed to eat it unless he was there. Delfino Montes put a rope around a pulley, and then tied the rope around the candy, and hoisted it up high so the children
