This podcast stems from an experience I had while riding my bicycle the other day in southeastern Idaho. I was at a stop sign when a car drove past me on the highway. I heard a rattle like someone was dragging something behind their car. I just thought about this but I’m reminded about the opening scene of the movie Napoleon Dynamite (which just happens to be based in this same small town where I was riding my bicycle while visiting my parents in Preston, Idaho).

As I watched the car go by, I realized it was dragging a gas pump hose, complete with the pump nozzle still hanging from the gas filler hole.  To hear the rest of the story and the lesson I learned from this and other experiences, listen to the podcast.  Below, you’ll see some pictures associated, with this podcast: my mom and I in front of Napoleon Dynamite’s house, the honest girl who gave me the inspiration  for this podcast, the gas station where she returned the hose and some pictures of flowers and other views from the hike on “P” Mountain overlooking Preston, Idaho.  I want to give a special thank you to my son, Justin for the awesome music for the podcast and for my beautiful wife, Denise for the introduction voice work.

The quote for this episode is by an unknown author:  The days may be long but the years go by fast.

Here are a few pictures:
