Very, very quiet last night. And what few runs there were, were split between nine cabs. 4 dayshift holdovers, 1 casual and 4 night drivers. The day drivers stayed on until 11:00pm-12:00 midnight. The casual left at 1;00am. 1 night gave up at 1:30am. The other 2 left at 2:00am and 2:30am. My solo hours generated 2 runs. Finished the shift with 14 runs and the same $ amount as the prior two nights.

My two best tips of the night were from an Australian and some lasses from Ireland. The girls said that no one tips in Ireland but friends had told them about it. Gave $20.00 on a $12.20.


Two really vivacious RN's

Took these two very pretty ladies from The Grand to the "Triangle" last night and brought them back this morning at bar close. They leave today to return to the mainland. But they are smart and have left some time to recuperate from their vacation before returning to work on Wednesday. Both are nurses. I forgot to ask where they lived. By the number of people who had to tell them "goodnight" before we could leave the "Triangle", I would say that they made an outstanding impression.


Their entry is interesting and beautiful. Located in The Shops Of Wailea.


We have a herd (is that the correct multiple?) of deer that habituate the Wailea and Makena areas. You see them frequently grazing along the edge of the road bordering the golf courses. They are hard to get a picture of. Click the photos below for the larger image and you'll barely be able to distinquish one doe fleeing into the brush. I'll keep trying for a better pic. This one was a quick "point and shoot".

The original shot.


I ran the cropped pic through PHOTOSHOP and INFANVIEW to get an enhanced enlargement.


Had fun with it last night. I was amazed at how many open access wi-fi "hot spots" there are in Kihei. Must be thousands. In the Pi'ilani Village Shopping Center I found nearly 25 different sources!

Played with it so long that I ran the battery down and it went into "hibernation" mode. Since I dispatch the next two shifts, I am going to leave it home.
