Nick and Julie sent me the following e-mail:
Hello there! Thank you for being a wonderful and welcoming cab driver for us immediately after we stepped foot onto Maui! You are very fun and informative about Maui and (though we were very tired) enjoyed chatting with you. Thank you for putting our picture on your website.
We have enjoyed our time here in Maui, though Julie got carsick when we drove along the beautiful Hana coast.

I can't begin to describe just how much e-mails (or comments posted here) mean to me.
ONE-NINE, READY FOR INSPECTION, SIR!
The ROYAL CAB roof sign has been non-functional for two weeks on ONE-NINE. I had tried to fix it myself, with no luck. So yesterday, my day off, I took it to our "meter man" and, after an hour of systematic frustration, he got it working.
Jerry (the "meter man") lives in Kahului, in a very well kept home. Like most Filipinos, he has a pet chicken that has full run of their yard.
Today, the owner, Art, is to take ONE-NINE to the county for its annual inspection. This is very perfunctory and doesn't even come close to what London Cabbie has to go through.
I was supposed to have my "rain check" BBQ dinner, that was cancelled last Monday, with Judy and Dave. Unfortunately, he caught whatever it is that is going around the island and we rescheduled for next Monday.
DA VINCI CODE
Since my cupboards, like Mother Hubbards, were bare, I did some grocery shopping. While waiting in the "check-out" line I spotted this magazine in the POP impulse buy area.
Yup, there is now a "Da Vinci Code" diet.
This will be the last, for awhile.
ANOTHER WEEK BEGINS
And there are only two more to go until the summer tourist season begins.
See y'all tomorrow!
