"The Full Tour" by A Gal from Texas


I was a young Texas gal in New York City on business. I hailed a cab outside my hotel-- when he heard my Southern drawl, he was intrigued, and asked if I had seen 'the Lady' yet. Once I figured out what he was talking about, I told him "No, I had not had time to do so, or to see much of anything else since my arrival in the city." So off we went, to see 'the Lady' on our way to the World Trade Center. What a beautiful sight! What a thoughtful cab driver!

Much to my surprise the next morning when I stepped out the door of my hotel, there was my 'Cabbie friend'' waiting to take me to my office....taking another route to show me something else I hadn't had time to see...once thru Harlem, once alongside Central Park, and so on for the next 4 days! 20 years has passed and the thoughtfullness of that cab driver is still a vivid, warm memory...along with the sights of his beautiful New York City.
