I will post pics soon, I promise. I have been sick for almost 2 weeks now and I am trying to get a doctor's appt tomorrow and try to solve this - I hope it's not pneumonia. Having asthma, I'm prone to having these lung infections - and this has really ruined my holiday spirit.

And Jim caught it and he is really pissed - he is never sick. Sorry I'm a debbie downer :sick: :frown:

Yes indeedy! Sherri does LOVE to harass me, LOL.

I will try to upload the phone pic ... and I fear some of the great gifts have already been eaten and/or destroyed. But Bari sent some terrier-ific things, and Scribbles and her housemates enjoyed them immensely and immediately.

OK, having trouble uploading the picture, get an error message that the file is too big. Ideas?

Your computer should have some sort of photo software, right? Go to the file resize command and resize it as 4x6 (or 6x4) with 72 pixel resolution. That will for sure be small enough.

you can do this with newer versions of paint. There is a "resize" option. Shoot for 600-ish pixels at it's widest part and the rest should fall into line proportionally. Also, .jpg's are much smaller, file size wise, than .png.

OK, clearly I need to transfer the photo onto my laptop and go from there to resize it. Will do! And here I was trying to do it the easy way, LOL.

Do you have a smart phone? What I do is "screen capture" the photo. That gives me a lower resolution photo, but it's still perfectly fine for uploading to ODO.

There is a free app that can resize too. I found it in the playstore and it did a fairly good job. https://play.google.com/store/apps/deta ... izer&hl=en You would select the "medium" option. I assume there's something similar for iphone users.

And ... yeah ... THAT showed up a whole lot larger than I imagined, LOL.

As I said earlier, there were other cool things, but they have been consumed and/or ripped apart. Good terrier fun. :-D

Update: I am finally better (2 and 1/2 week suck) with just a lingering, annoying cough and I sound likei Kathleen Turner, with those of you are familiar with her husky voice.

I am waiting for a new card reader as Georgie used mine as a chew toy - WTG girlie. You are lucky I adore you. Should have it this weekend.

Sorry for the delay. But, I must say, the human gift Jill, saved my life. She sent me honey from Wisconsin. Totally saved me. I made my hot toddies with it. OolongTea, honey and Jack Daniels, yeah! :whistle:

I'm glad you were able to use it! I'm sorry it's because you felt so bad, but it's nice to know my bees were helpful.
