A Moment of Thanks

I don't know if anyone noticed, but I have a new Header on my blog! ( I wish we had Headers on the aol journal...but alas, it's not to be)
This new Header all came about because of Astaryth ! Astaryth, is one of the aol folks (but maintains a mirror blog) who I began reading way back when I first started blogging. She's also.. smart! heh. Obviously.
When she put a new Header on her blogspot blog I innocently asked if a new one could be put on the "old blog templates". Now I know a tiny bit (very tiny). I can add links and such, but that's about it folks lol.
Astaryth, emailed me and I sent her my template.. we went back and forth only a few times before she had the script in and I had my new header!! And all I had to do was to make and size the picture I wanted! Isn't that cool?!!
So I wanted to take a moment and thank Astaryth for all her help. This isn't the first time she'd helped me do something in my journal/ blog that I couldn't do, so it stands to reason this isn't the first thank you ... and it probably won't be the last!
(now, if I could only get her here to NJ to rewire my towers! lol)

I'd also like to thank Chris ( Stuff Dreams are Made Of ) He's doing a big favor for me. Chris is someone I met not long ago from Carl's blog when Carl was having a Fantasy Reading Challenge. (big surprise that a fantasy reading challenge would draw my interest huh?)
Anyway I met Chris there. He's an unusual young man. By that I mean he's very young and already knows what he wants to do with his life!
Many think if one reads Fantasy books, that they have no brains at all. This certainly isn't true with Chris. He's already graduated College and is on his way to furthering his degrees so that he can become a counselor for young adults.
Isn't that marvelous?!!! How many YOUNG folks do you know who has their direction in life already decided? And not just that, but already well on his way to doing it!?!
Not only is he a young man working hard to achieve his goals.. but he takes the time to stop and do a favor of an old lady who he only knows from reading blogs!!
And so I wanted to give Chris a shout and tell him how much I appreciate his help!
Ok, I think that's all the thank you's for today lol..

Have a great Friday everyone!
...'till next time....

Awwwwww.... I love the Elly! And you are so welcome... Hmmm... I need to look at Wordpress. I'll bet we could put your header over THERE too. Only AOL is a big stick in the mud about letting us play with the code ;p

Cool -

and I have found that usually those of us who read Fantasy are probably a bit more Brainiacish (my made up word for the day). Vivid imaginations!!!!

astaryth: nope. I already checked wordpress.. like aol they only have a spot for "title" and another for the description.. but I like my header so much I check already lol

Karmyn: I have found many who read fantasy are creative in one way or another.

I posted a comment earlier and it looks like it didn't post! But it went something like this ;):

Thanks so much for the kind words Pat :) You're too sweet! And you've managed to turn me bright red!

So I've managed to convince someone that I know what I'm doing with my life, huh?

I love that elephant! Is he/she? from Shambala?

Hey Chris!.. I bet you look good in "red" heh..
Yes, the elephant is Timbo. Unfortunately he has passed away, but he was one of two elephants at Shambala.. here's a link to a "tribute" I did using photo's I had taken of Timbo..
