    wenders! Now, everytime I see him on the show, I think of you!
    He makes the show fun to watch I think.
    Last night I watched some of the Blues Bike episode, but I've seen it so many times that I didnt' watch the whole thing. It's not a bad bike at all, but I really don't like that big ole "fin" like addition that they put on the back fender. Doesn't matter what I think though, Mikey likes it!
    But I was noticing that when Mikey was working on things, he was very thorough and made NO errors. I think he's a great worker, but people (Sr, Jr mainly) don't take him serious because he jokes around a lot. I'm the exact same way at work...I must joke around a lot or I get bored. So I understand how Mikey can be misunderstood!

    life that which is unnoticed has the most power.

    I hadn't seen that eppy before - but then I've only recently started watching. I love Mikey. And I did note that he really wanted to learn and he appreciated what the other guys were teaching him, while Paulie and Paul Sr just sorta treated him like he was a doof.

    Yeah sleuth, that's exactly what I meant! One of the episodes, Mikey even says something to the extent of "I learned more in an hour with ______ than I have with Paulie all week."

    For some reason, I just don't think they give the poor guy enough credit...cause IMO and what they show him saying.. is that he really DOES want to learn stuff.

    I'm not sure if that's good or not!

    I haven't caught this week's episodes yet..I think Tivo is catching them on Friday. I'll have some quality Mikey time this weekend
    ugh. I don't get time to watch TV anymore, much less hang out at the FORT.

    But don't you worry, I'll be back in full force on or about November 3rd.

    POW bike

    I stumbled across the POW bike episodes - just partway into ep 2. (I used the guide button on my cable remote and saw it was repeating all 3 shows again at 11 pm but I just couldn't stay awake, lol)

    the bike was gorgeous - I couldn't believe how good the graphic artist is

    Is this American Chopper the same as the Orange County Chopper? If so, I heard on the radio that they would participate in a charity (American Lung ?) fund raising event.
