Happy Anniversary!

This weekend marks our 9th year here in Las Vegas.
9 years ago we sold everything we owned including our 1st home we ever bought in Anaheim, and packed the dog and 2 cats up in a u-haul and drove to Las Vegas, it was scary to say the least! We bought a home close to lake access so we could still go boating, opened our business and hoped for the best...it was shaky at first, only one claim a day maybe 5 a week if we were lucky, so charlie took a job as a school bus driver, it was great, he could still do the couple claims he got in between driving bus, I still held down the fort, cooking and cleaning and banking and billing. Pretty soon word got around that this independent claims adjuster knew what the heck he was doing! The insurance companies came calling, after about 2 years he could no longer drive bus, we were in business full time!! Some months we are so busy he has to hire help, but most of the time it is just enough to keep us happy and healthy living the life in fabulous Las Vegas!
Although we have had our ups and downs, Woody and Rusty are no longer with us (dog and cat) Hey, we still got Toby the monster kitty, we did gain a grandson, Ethan, who was born here in Las Vegas! Our home is perfect, well, I do need a kitchen remodel (it's on my bucket list!)

We have accomplished so many things and we are so happy here, Charlie has his racecar hobby that keeps him happy, I got my dream of putting in a real swimming pool, that makes me happy!
Life is good, I hope the next 9 years are just as good! See you then!
