I went to pick up one of my regular customers at the Seminole Hard Rock Casino in Tampa FL the other night at about 1:00am.  I had not been there in a while and it was fun to see the beauty of the facility.  The throngs of people coming and going never ceases to amaze me.

It was a fun night driving!

Long & Hard………

Salami Festival

Ok, so I just cannot help myself……..a customer I picked up the other day was “pranked” and sent me the video from YouTube……They asked her to help them find the Salami Festival at the corners of Long and Hard!  lololol……the way she told the story was hilarious! The video is funny but my customers telling of the prank on her was even more hilariously funny!

Here it is:

Firestone Grand Prix 2015 – St. Petersburg FL

First of all, my congrats goes out to…….. 

Juan Pablo Montoya wins Firestone Grand Prix of St. Petersburg

On Saturday 3/28/2015 I was blessed with the opportunity to pu a Media representative at the Tampa International Airport and bring him to the Firestone Grand Prix of St. Petersburg.  MAN I loved it!

I got to go inside the pit areas where all the cars, trucks, drivers etc were.

In a word….awesome!

I could have spent all day there, but I simply could not as I had other customers to pick up. But while I was there I grabbed a couple pics!

The St. Petersburg Police were helpful as always! Thank you!



The Privilege Was All Mine

One day last week, I received an order to pickup a named female at a specific address and take her to the airport. When I called her to touch base I could hear in her voice that she was under stress. She instructed me to pick her up on a specific corner & cross street. When ever that takes place it is always a red flag to some degree. Either way, it raises our senses.

I arrived at the corner and seen no one. I looked down the street as I pulled up and seen a female standing 2 blocks down. I went to that location and sure enough it was my customer.

She picked up her bags and we placed them in the trunk.  I could see in her eyes that she was tired and stressed…..sad mostly. As she got into my car the rest unfolded.

She had come to Florida to start anew.  Bottomline, it did not work out and the situation was far from pleasant.

As we drove she began to cry…to sob. I felt bad for her as I could relate to her feelings as I have been there too many times in the past myself.

Sooooo, I exchanged my horror stories with her and let her know that it happens to men too.


I assured her she will find the “one” she is looking for as I did…and if I did, she sure will.  She just has to pray for it and be extremely specific in what she desires.

During the rest of our ride to the airport we laughed and laughed…we laughed hard and over and over again.  She laughed at the pleasure of hearing the misery of my past….I laughed just as hard along with her.

I could now see in my rear view mirror that she was laughing so much she was crying from that!  LOLOL

When we got to the airport, she thanked me for the ride…..told me she could not believe how calm she now was, because of how bad she felt while waiting for me to pick her up…….calm, she was now calm…..she then thanked me again and gave me a hug…….yep…..gave me a hug……….

So evidently she had an awesome ride………and so did I.…….

The Privilege Was All Mine!

Jesus once again protecting and directing. Thank you for allowing me to be a small part of an awesome day.
