Cabbie George Goold is living his version of Driving Miss Daisy as he ferries 104-year-old Mary Moore around town.
The 80-year-old taxi driver has been giving free rides to his grateful passenger since she turned 103 a year ago.
And on her birthday yesterday, he offered another 12 months to celebrate the Bribie Island centenarian’s milestone.
“When George said he’d give me free transport, that was a blessing,” she said.
“When you’re on a pension you don’t have money to throw about. I wouldn’t be using taxis if I had to pay.”
Mr Goold said all centenarians ought to get free cab fares.
“I think it’s great someone that age can get around,” he said.
Irish woman Ms Moore enjoys three weekly rides to go shopping and visit friends. Although old in number, she is still independent, living alone and doing her own housework.
“She doesn’t even look 85,” Mr Goold said.
“The fact that she’s so active, you wouldn’t even take her to be that age.”
And Mary only has kind words for generous George.
“He’s a proper gentleman. I couldn’t manage without him.”
