I don't know who watches the show, American Pickers, but we do. While we were in Illinois, in one of my home towns, we came upon this antique store. We didn't even notice the store front until we came back out of the store. As we walked in I noticed the owner right away. Frank Fritz, one of the stars of American Pickers. I looked at the hubby and he looked at me and we both smiled and said yup, that is him. We said hello and that we watch his show. He really didn't comment to much and we decided that we really weren't too impressed with his personality.
I think that is the first time I really was even that close to a celebrity. I really don't care if I get all that close to one again. It really makes you realize that they are just like the rest of us. Regular people and that they aren't all the much more special than we are. They just get more publicity and usually have more money.
