Oh no,he watches storage wars too.It seems like every night all Mike watches is Duck Dynasty,Storage Wars,Pickers,Restoration and Pawn Stars. Fortunately I have a DVR and another TV in the bedroom to watch the discs on.And I watch Netflix when he falls asleep.

Actually I saw part of a Duck Dynasty last night where Cy (sp?) made an apron on the sewing machine and showed all the ladies up.It was pretty funny.

Gotcha Sis.

I am inching my way - in the 13 group -

Many years ago I won an Impala - actually saved the lives of 2 teenagers and my DH, had an accident in Vermont on ski trip

Just to say I did use up all the freebies in the world. Who can argue with saving lives.
