Matt1: Yes, mine are somewhere
Matt1: The remastered are bulky, but so much nicer
Rush: We had a spectacular lightning show last night!
Matt1: You get Tornadoes out there, no?
Rush: Never experienced continuous lightning flashes and thunder that just continued to rumble!
Rush: They can happen…but rare, thankfull!
Matt1: Love watching, from a distance
Rush: The wind DID kick up a lot though last night.
Matt1: Good….Are you close to American Pickers?
Rush: From a distance…yes!
Rush: Yes! Just down the road in Le Claire.
Rush: Maybe six or so miles away.
Matt1: Have you been to the shop yet? I’d love to stop in some day
Rush: Yes, we have!
Matt1: Oh WOW!
Rush: Twice before!
Matt1: That is SO cool
Rush: I think that the sister of the lady on the show works in that store.
Rush: She sort of looked like her.
Rush: A relative, maybe.
Matt1: That show really took off
Rush: I really like to watch it.
Matt1: Don’t know what ever happened to Frank though
Rush: I guess we could look that up!
Matt1: We looked once, but really couldn’t find anything for sure….back issues to taking a break from the season
Rush: I copied this just now:
Rush: Frank had taken a break during seasons 8 and 9 and took to Facebook to explain his absence, writing: “A lot of you have been wondering about my health and my weight loss.
Rush: “I have an illness called Crohn’s [disease], which at times is difficult to deal with. I started losing weight and ran with it!
Adding: “I have been exercising and eating good… Thanks for all of your kind words of concern! I couldn’t do what I do without all of you!”
Rush: Health concerns, it seems.
Matt1: I didn’t know he was on FB…..I follow Mike….Actually wished him a Happy Birthday a few years ago….and he replied right back….pretty cool
Rush: That’s GREAT!
Rush: He seems like a nice guy on TV.
Rush: GREAT to hear!
Rush: I love tghat!
Matt1: Are you set up in your new Chan area tonight?
Rush: It was REALLY hot for our first couple of days here! However, it cooled down a lot today!
Matt1: Chan Cave
Rush: Sort of set up, yes.
Rush: YES! 🙂
Rush: I have a lot of baseball things, too.
Rush: Autographed balls, etc. that I should have room for now!
Matt1: Cool….MLB game will be a tough drive now
Rush: Yes, but we would have a few reachable choices!
Matt1: We’re HUGE baseball fans
Rush: I want to go to some of our minor league team’s games.
Matt1: More intimate
Rush: They have a GREAT ballpark here!
Rush: Quad City River Bandits…take a look.
Matt1: Who are they affiliated with?
Rush: Milwaukee Brewers
Rush: Used to be the astros.
Rush: When we came through here the first time way back in 1992, we stopped to take a look inside the ballpark.
Rush: It’s been upgraded since then, but it was nice before, too!
Matt1: I mean, what a view!
mda19083 has joined this room

Rush: Dunkin Doughnuts!
Matt1: That’s great …..and exciting

Matt1: Yum….and dangerous!
Rush: Tomorrow is her 18th birthday.
Matt1: Happy-Happy Birthday to her!
Rush: Mr. Romano is still “Mr. Romano”, I see!
Rush: TYSM! I’ll relay that to her!
Matt1: 18? Wow……I remember when
Rush: I vaguely recall being there…. 🙂
Rush: I think CC is less than impressed with Mr. Romano.
Rush: “Why did John Ryder lie?”
