Yup, that's right. The crew from American Pickers was practically in my parents backyard!! The two ladies on the ends are my aunts and the the one in the middle in the pants is my momma! I wish the picture was better but it was a cell pic that I pulled off my aunt's FB page!! They all had a blast meeting the crew. My grandma was there hanging out with everyone! I haven't talked to anyone yet so I have no idea if they found anything good.. I'm sure they did though!! :) I missed them by less than 2 weeks!

And when I say tiny hometown, I mean tiny.. as of the 2000 census there were only 499 people. and it has since declined. I graduated with 18 people and that covered a bunch of neighboring towns too!

If you are curious, look it up. Nahma, MI Beautiful place to visit!!

Cool! Your hometown sounds a lot like mine, but I don't think we've ever had any celebrities! I live in a town with a census of around 650. I graduated top of my class, but it never sounds like much of an accomplishment since there were only 12 of us. LOL!

Haha! I was valedictorian too but I hate saying that when there were only 18 of us!!

I guess it is going to air in about 3 months from what my mom said!! She spent a lot of time where they were at yesterday and got a bunch of pictures with her real camera and not her cell so I can't wait to get my hands on those pictures!! ;).

Actually, I guess we *kind of* have celebrity ties, at least in certain circles. There is a Christian singer who was inspired to write a song about our town after visiting.
