The episode opens with Charlie thinking he's seeing a mirage. Two men on horseback are approaching; one is white and the other is black. Charlie throws water into his face to make sure he is not dreaming. It is Bart riding into camp and he is overwhelmed with joy. He immediately runs to meet him, shouting words of excitement and disbelief. He says to Bart, "They said you was hung." Bart replies, "And they was right!" As they exchange a few more words, Charlie asks about Bart's badge. Bart explains he is the new sheriff of Rock Ridge. Charlie's demeanor becomes serious as he reveals the railroad is heading that way. Bart and Jim exchange glances as the rest of the railroad crew realizes Bart is back and they all drop their tools to encircle him with their own shouts of joy.

Our guest today is Gordie “the Mailman” Adams lives in Saint Helena, CA and has been roaming the streets for 30 years, moving the mail. Growing up in the seventies with a steady diet of movies, music, monsters, TV, comic books, drawing cartoons, history, collecting baseball cards and following all sports Pittsburgh (though born in San Francisco), his brain is FULL of all things important and trivial. Having many hours on his route allowed him to fall in love with podcasts, enough to jump in the game many years ago. Nowadays, his own ‘cast THE GORDCAST, is on a bit of a hiatus, but he loves to guest on any podcast that’ll have him. Somewhere down the future is a variation on the MxM thingy, called… ZAR-DOZEN MINUTE!
