^^^ 4-1-1 ^^^

So, when do you ditch the tree and kill the lights?
New Year's Day?
12th night (January 6th)?

Just curious.

Got off to a rough start. #14's day driver had forgotten that I worked last night and thus I didn't hit the road until past 7:30 PM. But I had one run under the belt by the end of the 7 o'clock hour. Never left town but I also didn't sit very often, either. Until 11:00 PM. Then the rug was pulled out from under us. We had taken the last of the dinner runs back to wherever and the bars were mostly deserted. Some had never opened. About 11:30 PM #05 (Tina) packed it in, followed by "Crazy" Brian (#11) at 12:30 AM, Kimo (#22) at 12:45 AM and finally TMR (#27) at 1:00 AM. By that time the only bars open were LAB, Tiki and TipUps up in Azeka Place.

Between 1:25 AM and 1:35 AM I received 4 calls, all decent fares. Took me an hour to clear them.

One final fare, a reservation, at 3:45 AM finished off the night and then I had to wait until 4:30 AM before a day driver checked in, relieving me of the phone.

Pleasant shift.

15 fares / 121 miles / 1st quarter $200 bracket

Before work tonight I trim my beard, swap my "Santa" hat for my cowboy one and try to look more like Willie Nelson for the next 6 months. July is when I quit trimming and let the crumb catcher return. For the next Christmas period.

There is a "back-story" to that picture of Judy & me yesterday. Notice how she is holding my hands. As Richard was aligning the shot, I put my hands if front of her chest as if I was going to cup her breasts. He started laughing and she glanced down and saw what I was doing. So I then put my hands on her waist and slowly wiggled them around. "Wiggle" is the operative word. Judy is extremely ticklish. EXTREMELY! If so much as one joint spasmed, she had every intention of breaking it. Just to teach me a lesson.


Mrs. Kyle didn't raise a stupid kid. I knew that I had reached her absolute limit and didn't go past it.

Hey, y'all have a fantastic week. Just think, a week from yesterday and we'll be into a new year. Which we will probably fuck up before it is over.





Over The Limit?
Please don't drink and drive
