This is now also a taxi driving blog

It will continue to be my writing blog, as well. And at some point it will be an RV blog, too--but I'm too tired to go into much detail about that tonight.

Suffice it to say there have been a lot of changes in my life lately. About a month ago, I got a job driving for Night and Day Taxi in Hendersonville, NC, and today, with the help of my family, I bought a little old Dodge RV to live in.

I drove a cab in Tallahassee, Florida for just about a decade, from 1972 to 1982, and after that I drove in Tampa for about a year. I always enjoyed being a cab driver, and I'm enjoying it once again. I'm actually assigned to work at Asheville Regional Airport; I don't get into Hendersonville much. Most folks who get into a cab at the Asheville Airport want to go into Asheville. Go figure.

As much as I love the business, it sucks when business is slow. Which it has been lately. But they say summer is the busy season around here, so I'm hopeful that things will pick up.

We'll see.
