I remember as a child, my dad telling me about the time
he had a tarantula crawling up his arm - on purpose!
As it turns out it happened right here at this gas station.
My dad spent part of his childhood in Lehigh, OK.
The tarantula had been defanged and the owner
of the gas station was also the owner of the tarantula.
I finally got the see the place I had known of as a small boy.
My dad passed away a year after this trip almost to the day.
I was very thankful that we took the two day trip to visit some
of the places he grew up in.
