Gobble Gobble

I have the header figured out!

What do you think?

I hope you're impressed, because you don't even want to know how much time I wasted worked on getting it to fit right.

Yes, I took the picture. He might've been last Christmas Dinner. Or he could've been the one (half) responsible for my still-broken counter.

But no, Tom won't be a permanent fixture. I thought he was appropriate for the month. Maybe I'll put a new picture up each month. Maybe not. We'll see.

I'm nothing if not non-committal, you know. Is that a double negative? A triple? In any case, it annoys me when people say something (as though they intend it - maybe they do) and then don't follow through. And because I know you'll be waiting with bated breath on the first of December if I say I will put up a new picture, I want to be clear that I don't know exactly what my life will look like on that day, and there is a possibility that my intention won't come to fruition. I would hate to cause offense.

Now, how many of you hate it when people commit to nothing and have to clarify every statement?

I like it! I wish I knew how to be so savvy. I like how my blog looks for the most part, but I'd like to know how to be so fancy. Poor Tom. Not only is he dinner, but he is also subject to such adjectives as "fancy". What a blow to his masculinity.

Annie, thanks... There's definitely a learning curve to this stuff. But as for Tom, I feel no sympathy (well, maybe for the dinner part). HE'S the one who spent his life showing off and strutting his stuff around the backyard. He EARNED the title "fancy!" :D

It looks great!! I've tried adding a picture to my header several times too and haven't been able to get it to work. I'm impressed! I'm a complete idiot when it comes to html and all of that. :-)

Love the picture. I have never seen one so close up. Can't wait to see what you have for next month. You are creative.

Hurray! It looks great! Your perseverance paid off! Maybe you should host web classes on how to make your pictures fit into a Blogspot header.... You know, because you don't have enough going on in your life! Thanks for the photo tips! :D

Okay! I think I got it figured out. The pixels thing was the key. Check it out if you get a sec! Thanks for your help!
