Up Close With Taylor

I have always claimed to be a Taylor Hicks supporter as opposed to being called a fan, but I am going to get fan-girly here for a moment!
If you would like to join me in my fan-girly moment just scroll down to the bottom of my blog!

I LOVE the new slideshows at photobucket, well new to me!
I have my photos stored at several photo sites so I didn't have access to all of my photos of Taylor, but I think I'll be moving more into my photobucket account soon!

Just lovin' the zoom effect on this slideshow!
If you hear any big bangs, it's just us folks here at the pond a thudding!

Great blog, Bloom. But can you please explain thudding to me? I hear you do that very well!

Bloom said...

I could use one of those little smilie guys rolling around the floor laughing right about now!
I don't think I'll EVER attempt that explanation again. Geez, don't know whose face was redder mine or Brian's! I'm sure it's a memory none of us shall ever forget.
Thanks darlin' for starting my day off with a good laugh, I miss you girl!

Hello Blooommmm...,

Great blog... I am not crazy of jazzy, but, i always loves Taylor.., lol..

Sorry for being busy and lazy..

Now, someone please send me his videos so i can dance with Taylor this Christmas, lol..

I have not yet tried the slide shows in Photobucket yet but I loved your slide show, Bloom. Like you, my pictures are everywhere and I probably have two and three copies of some. I wish I could be one of those disciplined and organized fans.

I wonder sometimes how many pictures of Taylor are enough? Is one classified as a fanatic if they have more than 100? Looking forward to the New Year and all of the great pictures that are bound to appear. Of course, it makes absolutely no sense to just look at them. One must right click, "tag", save because we never know when we will need to use one of them. ROFL.

I really enjoyed the Morning Sun and you are very welcome for the picture. This time of year can be so gloomy. On a cloudy, rainy, or wintry day, it is so dark at 4 p.m. The nights can be very long.

I wish I had a video of you explaining the "thud"! One of those priceless moments, I am sure.

Yes, we do have fun here.

Bloom said...

Hey there soulsurvivor ... what a wonderful surprise to see your name here!!
My friend where HAVE you been??
I so miss your Taylor harmonica thread at TOSP, I think you need to revive it!!
Let me know which videos you are looking for and are you wanting to download them to your computer?
Christmas is coming fast, wouldn't want you to miss out on dancing!
Dancing with Taylor, now that is something I would love to do .. for real!

Bloom said...

Karin, I have oodles of Taylor photos and can't imagine what the number might be.
I'll never be able to organize them, as many are linked to pages in the scrapbook and it would be a huge job to go through and change all the codes.
Nope not happening! I'll just keep right clicking away too!
LOL my thud explanation had the girls on the floor rolling, that alone would have been a priceless video!

OMG girl I am rolling, you have no idea how much I miss you!!
Well I now know where I can find you, you've been sitting on the train waiting for it to pull out of the station again!
Well worth the wait!!
I've been saying that 2008 is going to WHOMP and the place to be is aboard the Taylor Hicks Train! I've got my ticket already, cause the seats are gonna fill up fast!

KarinP said...

Hey Anonymous! You bet I am proud of Bloom! She has done an amazing job with this Blog and I really enjoy reading it!

I am so happy to see you here in this little corner of the Net and it is a comfy place to be. You are absolutely right about that!

Yes, this Season is a bit different but others should realize that "Patience is the companion to Wisdom".

You do have me ROFL with your tree comment but more importantly, I am a bit worried! Ha Ha - just be careful. I don't think you need a Christmas Tree to shine brighter than any star. You just need Taylor's music and you just sparkle!

2008 is going to be a very good year, my friends!

Oh man ,,I dont know if this is the right place,,,but the music tonite made me feel all bubbly on the inside....IF EVRYDAY WAS LIKE XMAS MAN I THINK I AM GOING TO GO DOWN SOME CHIMMEYS TONITE,,,LOLOL hope I dont get stuck or something.....

Bloom said...

How y'all doing tonight ... are we stuck in the chimney?

KarinP said...

Hey Bloom! I am not anywhere close to being stuck in a chimney! Darn it, one would think that there is no Christmas being celebrated here. I had the best intentions today but by the time I got to the box with all of the outdoor Christmas lights and decorations, the wind was howling and the snow was falling. I even had Taylor singing in my ear while I was outside too.

The best I can hope for would be not to get stuck in a snow drift tomorrow. Brrrrr....it is cold here. It is Winter! I did not get an unexpected visit from a Christmas elf through the night either. My tree is still in the box, ROFL.

Ok Karin,,,,,better watch out,,better not pout,,,,cause,,,,TAYLORDOLF IS COMING TO TOWN,,,,,,,,put up that tree,,,,put a light in your mouth ,,and listen to Taylor singing a xmas song,,,and girl watch that light shine bright...LOLO,,,DO you need me to come put you ontop of the tree,,,,LLOOLLLLLOOOO>>>>>

KarinP said...

ROFLMAO, I am sure that if I put a light in my mouth and took a swig, I would be on top of that tree in no time at all.

Of course, you are more than welcome to come for a visit even if it just to ensure that I did put the tree up.

Heck, now that it is December 1, it is almost like the 12 days of Christmas with one to spare. The question is "Can I do it?". I will need more than one of Taylor's Christmas songs to get the job done. However, I could just put on a DVD with the Torrington Concert and that might light a fire under me!

Red or white for you?

Bloom said...

Karin Taylor's Torrington concert is an excellant choice ... did you get that tree done girl or did you just dance your way to the top of the tree and say done!

And the answer is RED ... love the red ... red guitar, red name in lights, etc. etc. :-)

KarinP said...

I wish that I could say that the tree is done but I won't lie. No, it is still nicely packed in it's box.

The neighbours were probably laughing quite a bit at this "Griswald" trying to connect all of the lights outside. I darn near strangled myself with all of those cords. Now, I have one spotlight that seems to be acting up.

They say that Patience is a Virtue so I will try to be virtuous, ROFL. As for when the tree will find its place, it is anyone's guess but I do hope it is shining bright by next weekend.

Red is a very good choice. Red represents energy and passion to me no matter where I see it!
