It ain't over til it's over!

Just a short while ago, I finally managed to personally - we'd previously just been playing 'phone tag' - hook up with a potential customer who had been referred to me by one of my old-timey taxicab customers and I want to tell you, folks, that it ain't over til it's over!

She (potential customer) was looking for someone who could be depended upon to drive her and perhaps one or more of her friends to the theater or the museum every once in a while, wait, and then pick her/them up afterwards and take them back home.

I told her what I would charge per trip - what I would charge for waiting, etc. ... ... we were on the phone for a long time (talking about this and that), and folks, it ain't over til it's over!

This gal's a retired surgeon and has been in the Houston area for a little over seven years. Prior to that, she lived in California.

Do you want to know what she did last weekend? She went sky diving!

She told me that she had nothing planned for the immediate future, but she was glad to have my number and information. I can't even begin to tell you how much I hope to meet this young lady!

Oh! Did I forget to tell you how old she is? She's 90!! Rrvit!!!

She's already my hero. Wow sounds like a great gal.

Doesn't she? She said the 'season' was over now for sky diving. (Heat-related? Probably.) Anyway, said she'd gone most recently just this past weekend ... her 7th time, I think. Incredible!
