Pay close attention.......you about to add some very important words to your vocabulary~
Thanks to Mike( aka Hottie McHott Hott according to Vintage Rescue Squad...lol!) and Frank" If I had a pork chop sandwich for every time I heard that one" you will totally need to be in the know for "freestyling" and "windshield time". Two very high tech terms for........ junkin!
Have you watched AMERICAN PICKERS yet??? I can't even believe it's on~ I mean FINALLY a reason to feel like you belong ~ to something~ cool even. It's been along time coming and frankly (pun intended) I am totally hyped! Life as a junker holds major excitement as many of you know. Treasures lurk around every corner~ the thrill of the hunt is addicting. Most of my shirts have stains on them, I never have a manicure, I keep gloves , a crowbar, wellies and screwdriver in my car at all times. I deal with cobwebs, mud, spider eggs, dust, dirt, you name it and well~ I guess that's the part where you loose most people in a conversation. Funny thing though, when they see a piece they LOVE and you tell them that "Oh that came out of an old chicken coop covered in chicken poop" they are AMAZED!
YOU GOTTA WATCH THIS SHOW~ the people they meet are the true stars, and their stories are even better. One of the best parts is that Mike and Frank ~ have a heart and don't try to rip these people off . Oh they dicker and do get some deals which is fun to watch and TOTALLY part of the junkin experience. So when I leave the house today, my head will be held a little higher, stained shirt and all and know that I am now part of the COOL group! It feels great!!
