Monday was a blessed day. I was in Santa Clarita, CA, desert land, filming a Toyota commercial. From the director, Baker Smith to the cast, top notch, witty, happy people. I could have cared less it was 90 degrees…Our segment is one of 16? showing the history of tailgating. I’ll leave the rest to your entertainment viewing…ours airs Sept 20th on NBC during Monday Night Football half time. Yeeha!

My husband on set, is a wonderful British actor, Neil Dickson. He’s classy, gifted and humble…and one of his many credits, the mini series AD, is Tim’s favorite, and the character he played, VALERIUS, is very special to Tim and I…for many reasons…and when I found out, I knew this was a gift from above…no doubt.

I’ll write more later…but suffice to say…it was a great day…the director was wonderful. Baker Smith, love his energy, humor and speed…thank you to all.

Gotta pick up Harrison today from Fresno…3 1/2 hrs from here. He’s with Tim’s family…as Tim is away till Friday in MN… too.

    Finally! I feel honored because I get to comment first! September 20th is marked on our calendar and I’ll remember to check out halftime. So glad you had such a great day. May there be many more! Can’t wait to see you in 1892 garb……..

    OK Jen, September 20th is a Sunday – so since I don’t want to miss it and I won’t watch TWO football games, is the commercial on Sunday night 9/20 or Monday 9/21?

    Cool gig! All my life I’ve driven Toyotas and I love football so I can’t wait to see the commercial! I thought of you when my husband and I flew to Grand Rapids to visit some friends. I hope you’ll be able to see your family soon…meanwhile they can all tune in September 2oth to see you!
