Saint Augustine taxi delivers

Among the many mundane tasks that taxi services provide one is the delivery option.Sometimes it is just cheaper for us drivers to just pick up what you need and bring it to you.We do charge a nominal 10.00 fee plus the cost of whatever we pick up,alcohol,fast food or even medication .

Besides the usual beer and cigarettes we normally deliver to Mr.Calloway this time I was tasked with a power ball lottery ticket.Weeks go by and Abraxi Taxi receives a big fat check in the mail along with a short note saying; “I won”.

Well good luck Mr.Calloway sorry to see you go.Unfortunately for our taxi service and airport shuttle we have one less Cab to service.

Besides the usual beer and rolling papers we normally bring to Mr.Calloway:this time I was tasked with a power ball lottery ticket.Weeks go by and Abraxi Taxi receives a big fat check in the mail along with a short note saying; “I won”.

Well good luck Mr.Calloway sorry to see you go.Unfortunately for our taxi company and airport shuttle we have one less Cab to service.

First Day Back

The kids are finally back in school here in Saint Augustine.When I went to school way back when,we started the day after labor day. I am not sure why in Florida they start so early and at the hottest time of the year.

From a taxi drivers viewpoint this does put a damper on the cab industry as a whole.This will be a very lean month overall but we do have the holiday weekend to look forward to.And of course Mumford and Sons in mid September.

So even as you watch taxicab drivers sit and sweat during the August doldroms,start planning ahead for labor day weekend and the concerts that are in the near future.September will be a big month for taxi services and airport shuttles.

Abraxi taxi is accepting reservations for the holiday weekend and we will be servicing the beaches during the Mumford and Sons concert.Really plan ahead as parking and taxis will be scarce and traffic will be horrendous.

Vilano UFO Sighting

I was doing my job driving a taxi and listening to George Nori on 1240 AM.Just another redeye airport run in Ponte Vedra going to the Jacksonville airport.Since I was in Downtown Historic area of Saint Augustine Florida I decided to take Coastal Highway through Vilano Beach to my destination.

Now granted I was listening to Ancient Aliens,not abductions thank God, paying little attention except to traffic on the road;when up ahead I saw what appeared to be a roadblock.Lots and lots of annoying red and blue emergency lights,that severely impact the night vision of cabbies.

When I pulled up I was mildly surprised to see what was a military presence. The MP asked to see my hack license and taxi insurance which I dutifully handed over.She gruffly asked me what my business was before sending me on my way.

Well the taxi business can get a little dull.But now my curiousity was getting the better of me.I started to look around and some funny stuff was happening on the beach.I realize that sea turtles might be hatching but this miliary overload seemed a bit much for even the most ardent of ecology lovers.

So far not much in answers as I continued on to my fare and then to the airport.George Nori was over by this time, however my interest had picqued.I came back again headed South along Coastal highway even as this would put me miles out of my way and upon reaching the roadblock was told the area was cordoned off or was it quarantined? No matter Abraxi Taxi was forced away from what looked to be an inordinate amount military hardware and an army of workers struggling with some unknown object on the beach.

I dont have any proof and did not see any other witnesses to what I think is a massive cover up of a downed alien spacecraft.After getting home and sleeping for a bit I did buy some newspapers and tried some Google searches but have found little out.

Perhaps this was just some military training but from what I saw it sure looked like a made for TV conspiracy thriller. I will never find out what truly happened.Driving a taxi involves long hours but is never without these special moments.
