Good Morning New Jersey!

Good Morning Everybody!

I got the wake up call a 6:15 a.m. and I jumped out of bed like I was ready to go!  At Home, with the time change it would have been 5:15!  Am I nuts!  You want raring to go??...I got it! I think it's a bit of adrenaline.  LOL!  So excited about today...I know there will be a lot covered and I truly think it's going to be fun.  No doubt I will be on overload and my brain will be exhausted by the end of the day!  But soooo looking forward to learning all the goodness that Tim, Dyan and Claudine will show us.

So, to walk off a bit of energy this morning, I ran outside to grab a few shots to show you just where I am and what I see...

Here are some 6:30 a.m. shots of Tinton Falls, New Jersey....

Some Gorgeous Blooming Trees In The Hotel Parking Lot...

LOL!  The Front Door Of The Hotel...

The Trees Just Beginning To Leaf Out....

Believe It Or Not...You See The Corner of The Hotel (brick) On The Right?? See The Building In The Background???  RANGER INDUSTRIES....Talk About Close!

The Sun Coming Up For A Wonderful Day!
OK, there ya go...Now to grab a shower so I can get ready to get GRUNGY and Inky!..LOL!

Have an awesome day and see y'all tonight!

  12. Isn't it amazing how easy we can get up when we get to do something fun?! Thank you for sharing these pics.....here I thought you would be in a downtown setting with tall buildings and the hustle and bustle of the city. When you live on the opposite side of the country and have never been there, that's how you think. After all, all of us in OreGON all own horses and live on ranches. I am so excited for you. Hey! Video tape it for us....ha ha ha.

  23. Oh, if only the entire day (for me) could be a sunrise. What an adventure for you. Laughed at Cesar's message about your phone. I know you'll have a great time and come away with your head even fuller (if that's possible) of new ideas to share. Say hello to the Ranger guys for all of us. I'm glad I'm not the only one who gets cleaned up before getting dirty.

  28. Thanks for the deja vous, Jim! It was back in 2005 that I stood in that same place as Ranger U was beginning. It was a fun, memorable event I will never forget. I know you will feel the same--and you will wish it would never end!
