Love, Working and Living in a Las Vegas Apartment

I used to live on the eastern shore. Then I moved pretty far out west to Nevada. I was headed to the ocean on the other side of the country, but settled for Nevada when I met my wife there. Well, she wasn’t my wife at the time. She was a waitress in a diner, and we just hit it off very fast and very well. It was only a short time later that I was looking through an apartment guide for Las Vegas while sitting in my hotel room that I could rent by the week.

Neither one of us made a lot of money, but that really did not matter. We were able to pay our bills without putting a burden on the system. We paid our way working with our own hands. I had published a book online, and I was earning enough from sales of it to rent a halfway decent apartment. We decided to get married. No, not at one of those chapels. We got married in a church by a real pastor. We did not have one guest. It was all we needed. The state only needed the form filled out, but we knew marriage was more than that.

We started out life in a tiny but very affordable apartment in the Las Vegas area. There was plenty of work for us to do. All you had to be willing to do was to get up, go out and apply yourself to an honest living. Along the way we met a lot of people who were not willing to earn their keep the hones way. Plenty of them have come and gone over the years. We are still here living the best we can. The things that have changed are that we are in a much bigger place, and we have two beautiful children. I never did make it to the coast, and have no plans of seeing it by myself.
