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.


Harrison the Jedi

Well 3 is a charm. We spent Saturday , our 6th Anniversary at Disneyland,since we had 1 more day in our 3 day pass. Last year TIm took me to a nice romantic dinner …this year I was very excited to get a large bag of warm kettle corn..which Harrison ate as much as me.

We did California Screaming in the day and at night and Harrison kept his Jedi/Franciscan robe over his face the whole ride…Hence when we download the photos you’ll see what I mean. We went to watch the Jedi Training this time, since he already received his certificate, and he memorized the script and the way the Master wore his cloak…(which Tim bought for Harrison with the promise that no matter what new character he likes by Halloween, this will be his outfit)…

So needless to say, we’ve been in training at home to become Jedi’s..He’s also in his 2nd week of gymnastics camp , which 1 hour is dedicated to actual training, and the rest is running around on trampolines, and all those mats and equipment, but he loves it…and no dodgeball.

I have good new s and bad news. Bad news is Harrison and I have to cancel our trip to my parents house and visit with my 18 nieces and nephews and brother and sisters next week, cuz the good news is I booked a National commercial. more about that when I sign the contract.. but needless to say we’re all excited.. alright time to wake him up… later
