"Venimus, vidimus, vicimus." .. we have returned!

We're baaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaack!

It was a whirlwind trip and there is much to tell, but I know many are awaiting anxiously, with baited breath (get the worms out of your mouth, we don't like those! ewwwww!!! unless they're gummy worms, but not once you've chewed on them... ewwwwwwww!) to hear of the "Taylor Experience" (my fourth installment and the Chicklet's third!).

Chicklet and I headed off on our road trip to see Taylor Hicks in Watertown NY on the day before the concert. We stopped on our way to buy ourselves a copy of his book. I wanted something to read as I sat on the sundeck and caught a few rays... I debated bringing it to the concert to see if I could get him to sign it and chose to bring a CD instead - I was not lugging a huge purse to this.

We made great time, the customs agent at the border between Ontario and NY State was sweet and I didn't even have to mention Vince's name (I think that may have actually gotten us in trouble... quite frankly).

We promised our Big Sis Dixie we'd share the Onion Video...

Here it is in all it's glory! (The squealing? The Chicklet LOL!!)

I'll post more (just needed to get this video out there for all y'all to enjoy!) including our encounter with the man himself (how I managed to keep my cool and not sound like a nut is beyond me), and the great new band (well, new to us) that we had the pleasure of meeting after their performance as the opening act for Taylor. We will be heading out to see them in concert as soon as we can. The Alternate Routes... you have to check them out! The most gracious and sweet guys, and talented beyond words!

Love you all more than my luggage!
Hugs, smooches and gropes!
