At 8:33p (HST) ONE-NINE hit the 91,000 mile mark.

Remember, you can re-enter if your guess has been passed or you can modify your guess or you can enter for the first time. I will be accepting all "bets" until the odometer reads 99,000 miles. If no one "nails it" exactly, then the entry closest to the correct date/time, without going past the actual date/time, will be the winner. In the event of a "tie", the earliest correct entry will win.

A vicious shooting took place on a beach the other day. Definitely pre-meditated. The victim will survive. Police said they had difficulty finding anyone able to identify the faces of the responsibles but had an abundance of physical descriptions.

6 fares / 85 miles / first quarter of the $100 bracket

We were going gangbusters for the first 3 hours and then someone threw the switch and everything ground to a screeching halt.

As I was descending into the bowels of the parking structure, where ONE-NINE hibernates in my absence, my cell rings. They need me immediately for that OGG. I thought to myself :
"This is going to be a fantastic shift!"
Boy, was I wrong.

Returned to the southside and had four dinner returns between 9p and 10:30p.

No bar close.

One dog-watch pupu.

Hopefully, tonight will improve and follow the trend that I thought was getting established.

That one late pupu was nice though. A $7.40 fare who gave me $20 and "keep the change". He was appreciative of the fact that I was out there and that he didn't have to walk that last mile or so home.

It is nice to be appreciated.

Have a fantastic day and a wonderful weekend.

Hope to see you back here soon.

Its my night to drive/dispatch and play "sheriff" to our "posse" of cabs tonight.
