Tall, Dark and Handsome

Flipping through the university's quarterly magazine, my eyes were
immediately drawn to this guy! Hey...I know this guy!
Yep, my oldest. Just look at him...why wouldn't they use him
as a model for some photographs? And yes, he did
say it was staged. He's only been in the library
twice in two years and one was for this photo session.
I used to go there for a quiet place to study.
But then, I lived in the dorms. ha.

  1. They had to use him as a model. They obviously can't afford professional models. They can't even afford chairs!

  2. He's only been in the library twice in two years? Wow!

  3. Yes, he is definitely tall, dark and handsome, Betsy. It certainly doesn't look like a staged photo ..he looks so intent!

  4. hahaha, I guess the library isn't what it used to be for Higher Ed. I know the one at the college I work at is looking to reduce it's collection of books and increase computer and study space. He's a handsome guy, no doubt about it. :)

  5. Pat ~ he certainly is a good actor, isn't he? haha.

  7. That is amazing. Maybe they were just looking for a good looking guy. Has he gotten any other calls to model? LOL. He might have a new calling.

  8. Finally the library is used for something more than collecting dust
    Agree with the Fox no chairs is a bust
    Are they really that cheap
    Making one sit on the floor to take a peep
    Wow three books at once too
    That takes talent to do..lol

  9. He is, indeed, tall, dark and handsome!

    Do you have some fond memories of the dorms?

  10. Silly men ~
    Chairs aren't in the aisles
    To reach the books would be a trial!
    No, there are nice study areas around
    and cushy furniture does abound.

  11. alaine ~ fond memories? Oh sure...I mean, you can't live in the dorms for four years without some memories! hahaha.

    ReplyDelete
  12. Yeah, right, like we were SERIOUS... :)

    On the other hand, chairs could be useful in the aisles. Not everyone is as tall as your son.

  14. 'we' ~ a fox and a cat on a team.

  15. julieking ~ college IS fun times!! I keep telling him to enjoy it...there isn't any other time in life like it!

  16. If three or more people had commented on "no chairs," I would have written "all of us." Then you'd really be scared that there was some unholy alliance going on, huh? Then you'd be using your chairs at home to barricade your doors!

    ReplyDelete
  17. LOL!!! Then I would have been saying "Oh, come on, people!" It's about Taylor, not the lack of chairs! Geesh!" :)

    ReplyDelete
  18. And here I was, thinking that Taylor was heroically calling attention to the college's budgetary woes...

    ReplyDelete
  19. ha. No, but if you'd like to contribute to his tuition, he'd appreciate it. ha. Can you believe $700 per credit hour?

    ReplyDelete
  20. Yes, even in my former high school where I worked, they have systematically removed most of the books from the library as kids use computers and don't read books. I hung out in the library a lot to get away from the dorm closet that I shared with someone else.

    ReplyDelete
  21. L.D. ~ dorm closet...that's a good way of putting it! With cardboard walls, right?

    ReplyDelete
  22. That is pretty cool and he surely is handsome! That happened to my son once, he took our Golden in with him to get some Sr. pictures taken and they put him and the dog in the pamplets for a few years! ;D

    ReplyDelete
  23. What a surprise that must have been! He is very handsome indeed...all your boys are. :)

    ReplyDelete
  24. you two sure do know how to make some handsome guys! He must be quite the man on campus..;j

    ReplyDelete
  25. Yes he is tall and handsome (not so dark lol)
    And well if you can get them into the library once its better than no time at all.
    lol

  26. Betsy he is very handsome indeed .. and his photo in the university magazine will certainly be a draw card to entice the young female uni students into the library...to do a little more study!!

    ReplyDelete
  27. Oh, he is gorgeous.;) And he looks so much like you.;)) I can understand that you are proud, your son would truly make a great model.;))
    Have a lovely weekend Betsy,
    xoxo

    ReplyDelete
  30. Wow! Look! That's me! That's me!

  31. He IS a tall, dark and handsome one, Betsy! Cute as they come!

  32. Sounds a little like my son who managed a degree without looking at much more than the dust jacket.

  34. What a nice shot - and it helped himfind the library! Maybe he can pay his bills with a little more modeling.

    ReplyDelete
  35. Great photos! He sure is handsome, and looks like a natural! I live for the library!

    ReplyDelete
  36. He might have a new career in his future. Library time in college was a totally social time for me, but then again, I was an art major!

  37. Nice picture! All of your boys are handsome! The "no chairs" comments made me laugh, because I will say that one of my first thoughts was why he'd study in that crowded place on the floor. :)

  39. bothsides ~ yes, and my first thought was that he was way too tall to squish into that spot. Obviously he isn't claustrophobic. ha.

  40. Great picture...maybe he has a future in modeling : )

  41. My he is tall, dark and handsome, and really looks the part of a studious learner.
