A taxi driver today who insisted on driving my daughter all the way home from Mum's to her house, instead of dropping her off at the train station. He turned the meter off and for a taxi fare that would normally be around $100 he would only accept $10. Plus he had to wrestle her wheelchair in and out the boot. What a lovely man!

The Little Lion in Portsmouth finally got a haircut and beard trim. Now he looks like a Turkish man instead of a French Canadian trapper.

That's impressive. Some boots are not especially accommodating for wheelchairs. I had to take off the foot rests sometimes.

But that's very generous with the fare too. I had a taxi driver once who couldn't find where we were going and turned off the meter. When we found where we needed there was a mile long queue so we didn't wait and came back home, meter still off and by now the charge was less than a return journey if we'd known exactly where to be.

What a lovely man. How lucky was that eh? Of all the taxi drivers around, your daughter got a gem like him.

He was bad even when his shit first came out. Must be cringeworthy looking back at it now.
