Joe and Joan and their taxi

Joe and Joan and their taxi

Joe and Joan of Essex are an interesting couple who could tell endless stories about people they have encountered in their careers but stay mum on names. Joe has been a London taxi driver for 28 years and proudly displays his license. He had to complete 3 years of training and learn over 25,000 street names, churches, hospitals and the name of every lamppost at Buckingham Palace. They are not allowed to use GPS, so he has all the info stored in his head.
Joan retired from Lloyd’s of London where pianists insure their fingers and dancers insure their legs. What and who they know from their jobs is fascinating. Oh, Joan became a senior volunteer for her local police dept and helped catch 2 burglars. She is always on the lookout for suspicious and sketchy hooligans!

And a British breakfast of beans, crumpets and grilled tomatoes makes the day start off just right in the English countryside.
