Not good. Definitely not GREAT. But the best Tuesday I've seen in a very long time.

Logged in and heard #27 (TMR) pick up to OGG. 1 minute later #22 (Kimo) also picked up to OGG. I was now 3rd up in the Wailea rotation.

#17 (Maui Jim) gets a dinner run into south Kihei. Then #05 (Tina) is dispatched for an OGG. I am now 1st up!

I get a hotel-to-hotel, $5.60.

#17 had checked back in to Wailea, as had #25 (Lee), another day-shift holdover. So I am now 3rd up again.

#17 gets an OGG and so did #25. I am back to 1st position.

Wailea to Sarentos. Which sits right on the Wailea/Kihei divide line. Just into Kihei.

No out-of-town runs for me. Oh, we had them but my karma was being pissed on. I wonder which one of the Fates I had drawn the attention of.

I thought my luck was going to change when I learned of a 4:30a to OGG from Wailea. I was doing a set of in-town pu-pus when #21 (Mary) checked in to Wailea at 3:40a. She was 1st up and there went my only shot for a "money" fare. Finished the last of my town runs, refueled and headed to Wailea to turn over the phone and reservations. Arrived just as the folks showed up.

Oh, well. As Chief Dan George said in the movie "Little Big Man":
"Sometimes the magic works and sometimes it doesn't."
As I say:

12 fares / 76 miles / 2nd quarter $100 bracket

I hope you enjoy this:

A little boy goes to his father and asks,
"Daddy, how was I born?"
The father answers,
"Well son, I guess one day you will need to find out anyway!

Your Mom and I first got together in a chat room on Yahoo. Then I set up a date via e-mail with your Mom and we met at a cyber-cafe.

We sneaked into a secluded room, where your mother agreed to a download from my hard drive. As soon as I was ready to upload, we discovered that neither
one of us had used a firewall, and since it was too late to hit the delete button, nine months later a little Pop-Up appeared that said:

'You got Male!'"

Everybody enjoy your day and I'll see you tomorrow.
