    Yep. I just knew he was going to get his own show after he was on Pawn Stars a few times. They do amazing stuff.

    Yeah, I like that show. The American Pickers is fun also. Not a fan of Counting Cars, but I do enjoy seeing some of his custom work.

    Oh, I like Counting Cars, lol.

    Love the trailer where the other guy remarks that Danny gets more worked up over losing a car than breaking up with a girl. I can SO understand that, lol.

    Pickers is good, too. I see a lot of things I recognize on there -- and a whole lot more I don't! But I file some of it away in the storage barn that is my mind ;) If I ever have to go to Nashville for any reason, I'm going to try to redeem that necessity by going into their store there.

    Auction Kings is fun, especially since I've managed auctions, field and in an auction house. I'd love to run an auction house. NOT as an auctioneer :eek: Just the gallery manager.

    Did you watch any of "Picked Off"? I watched a few episodes, but it got stale for me.

    I watched some of it. I thought it needed some tweaking here and there. One thing, a lot of the pairs weren't really picking -- they were going to flea markets and shops; and then letting them go back to previous sites for the final pick was pretty dull.

    Did you catch the Restoration episode where they restored a tampon dispenser as a donation for a breast cancer fundraiser? And Tyler got stuck going out to buy tampons? "They're for my dad." :rofl1:

    Yeah, that was great.

    I think my favorite piece that they did was the kids train ride. They actually had to build the tracks for the thing from scratch.

    I did not. Things have been a bit chaotic at Casa Del Q lately. School, kids are sick, the A/C is out (again) and had my van in the shop for the annual state rape (i.e. safety inspection).

    Ok, so I recently started watching Flip Men. Might be a new favorite. Loved the episode with the "Polygamy House". That GSD was gorgeous and he ended up adopting it.

    I'm trying to not add any more, lol.

    I'm also seriously un-house centric right now. I'm ready to go live in a van, down by the river. Where no one can find me.

    Do like Storage Wars/Texas though. I love what Mary and Jenny do with junque! I've been watching an odd episode of Shipping Wars here and there, research for Black Dog ;)
