I live with my wife, two dogs and two cats on the Southside of Birmingham, Alabama. I owned my own business; a cigar, wine and magazine shop in my hometown of Tuscaloosa for 13 years. I closed that business in 2008 and moved with my wife, who was already working in this city, to Birmingham. I’ve had several jobs since that time but only one has been interesting enough to write about.
This blog is a collection of short stories about my adventures as a taxicab driver. I’ve never had a job that allowed me to see the fabric of society nearly as up close and personal as this job. These stories are about the rich and the poor, the black and the white, the gay and the straight, the sick and the well, the good, the bad, the ugly and everything in between. I hope you enjoy it.
