My Books

Since everyone seems to be promoting their books these days, I am going to add a couple of mine.

I'm not much on pushing myself on to readers. I like for readers to discover my musings for themselves and hopefully they will stand on their own merits. 

I do hope each reader finds something that will touch their soul and hopefully something to carry in their hearts on rainy days.

Thanks to everyone who has inspired me, loved me and helped me to get to this place. I love you all  : )

Happy reading. Lots more to come !            Joyce Burns

1100 Taxi Service, Tupelo, Ms

Tupelo, Mississippi has always been an interesting place but as I get older I find myself more and more interested in her history and that of surrounding Mississippi towns.

In looking back into some of my own family's contributions, I found that my stepfather, John Franklin Hill, as a young man started the first taxi service in Tupelo. It was named 1100 Cabs and he bought and paid cash for three shiny new cars when he started his business. His taxi service was more on the lines of a luxury service, somewhat like one thinks of today as a limousine service. He was meticulous with his cars and wouldn't let a spot of dirt rest an hour on his cars, inside or out.

This business was located on the corner of Spring Street and Jefferson where the east corner of the Justice Center sits today. So next time you visit Spring Street see if you can imagine (or perhaps you are old enough to remember) the taxi yard on the corner.

More historical Tupelo to come.
