I am addicted to. . .

American Pickers on the History Channel. I am really not much of a t.v. watcher but stumbled upon it last month while I was sick and lounging on the couch became my activity of choice. Well, now I can't get enough of it! I guess it is the thrill of the hunt. If you are not familiar with the show it follows two "pickers" as they scour the country for antiques and treasures to sell. They dig through old barns, sheds and just about anywhere else you can think of. It amazes me how some people can accumulate so much over the years and never part with it. I couldn't imagine living with that much. . .stuff, but watching them literally hunt for treasures is just so much fun, not knowing what they will find next. If you haven't checked it out I suggest you do.

I have to tell you. . .I was on a field trip with my 4 yr. old yesterday and we went to an old farm for an orange festival (here she is making fresh orange juice). They had tons of rusty old farm equipment and chippy old crates and boxes. There were several sheds with antique cars and rusty goodies! I took a few pictures. . most of which unfortunately, turned out blurry with just my little old camera. The other mothers must have thought I was crazy getting all excited about a bunch of "junk." I was just itching to go in one of the barns and see what was inside! Maybe someday, in another life I can travel the country in search of wonderful "junk" too!

"Pickers" is one of my favorite shows too. It's really fun to watch them sort thru all the junk. I like the one where they found the circus rides......you see some real interesting stuff. It is like a history lesson, I guess that's why they are on the channel! Your daughter is adorable......yumo, I could use some fresh squeezed OJ about right now!

I just discovered Pickers, too, and love it! Those guys love their vintage bicycles and signs, don't they! Your daughter is darling! Patti in Texas
