Taxi Cab Blues

Day 1: So have you ever waited outside of your house for an HOUR in the freezing cold for a taxi cab to pick you up and in the end having to take a bus for continued lack of cab?

Day 2: So have you ever needed a cab to take you, your husband, and two heavy bags across town but had to again wait in the cold, only to be refused service by one, then literally kicked out of another with exclamations of "Get out! I don't want your money!" and then utterly ignored by three more empty cabs before finally being rescued by the guardian angel of cab drivers?

Well, we have. So next time you enter your nice, warm garage through your nice, warm house to immediately get in your nice, warm car, just think of us!

I received what you sent me in the mail. I just wanted to let you know I cried when I opened it. Thank you for everything. I can't really tell you how much it meant. I miss you and look forward to hearing about your adventures.

Unfortunately, yes, I have, but it was a hot day and I was by myself with both kids! :) Gotta love this country!
