Tag Archive: Hugs


I picked up this young lad, his siblings and Mom, to take them home. His young cousin stepped up to the window to talk to me. He asked me what I do at home! It made my day. He was a young fella that I also had as a passenger many times with and without his parents. It made my day that he wanted to chat with the taxi driver. Maybe it helps that I give the children “smarties” when they ride with me!

When I called to schedule a visit at the assisted living facility where my 97-year-old Mother is, they said, “We were just talking about your mother!” At the table during a meal, one of the residents was crying, and my Mother got up out of her chair, went over to the lady and gave her a big hug. Wow, how sweet is that? I had a nice visit with her on the porch. She said, “I would give you a “howdy do” handshake but I think it is against the rules!” LOL
