This afternoon as I was coming home from work my good friend George Maglaras waived me over. They had just got done filming an episode of American Pickers at his Marina which is just down the street from my house. He had to sign a contract of secrecy and keep onlookers at bay, but at the end of filming when I came along he got me in so I could meet Frankie & Mike and snap some pictures for George. They bought a ton of stuff from him and filmed an episode that will appear probably early winter. Mike & Frankie are two ordinary guys, funny as hell and not a bone of arrogance in either one. Mike actually grabbed and shook my hand several times....I'll never wash it again!

Anyway so as not to load stuff up here I attached one camera phone shot of George with Mike. I also posted an album publicly up on facebook where you should able to see more pictures at: American Picker @ George's

What a cool way to end a crappy Monday!

Good point....

One thing I learned is they actually only put things in the van for the show. They actually have a large rental truck that comes and picks up the pickins after they are done! They left the stuff behind tonight with someone watching over it until the truck could get there and pick it al up.

And their production crew is small, but just as friendly as Mike & Frank. After meeting everyone you wouldn't ever get the impression that this was the cast & crew of one of cable's bigger shows.

Oh, and no make up or make-up artists either. Just a couple of guys in jeans & t-shirts! Just wish I could have met Danielle....LOL

The whole family enjoys watching the pickers on Monday night. I look forward to seeing the NH show. Any idea as when it will air?

An advance person called our Sheriff's Office and several others looking for leads. They found him threw one of those leads....still supposed to air the episode early winter but George is under contract to only discuss the visit in general terms. Foster's is doing a short story on the visit to the Dover area in tomorrow's edition.

Ok. I must be going blind. Only saw the tall guy in the pink shirt. Got worried that maybe Frank got replaceed!

Same basic show, guys are different, and when they offer aprice on something they say, 'How about $20 for this EH?'

I used to like that show, but the more I watched it the more I decided I can't stand those two guys. the little heavy guy especially, what a DB. The way he talks to the girl who works for him is what does it for me. He is always such an ass to her.

Anyway glad you guys had fun meeting them. It's pretty cool seeing the behind the cameral stuff. My brother worked in the industry for years and it's interesting what some shows produce with a very lean crew (American Pickers); there are other outfits that need a caravan of gear.
