Whoa! What’s going on dude?

cropped-new-logo-hilmimil.jpgI know, I waxed on about flowers and Spring and I love you all for liking my post but I had to get back to being silly before National Geographic called and offered me a job 🙂

I’ll bet you had to do a double-take at my blog to make sure you were on the right site too! So, this is my new banner. It’s a bit silly and I’m putting it up here to see what kind of feedback I will get from my readers.

This has been experimental all the way and although I love rotating various photos on my banner, I thought it would be a good idea to get a bit more ‘up close and personal’ and commit to something other than just random pics from my iPad.

    I like it, I loved the picture of your uncle too. You can stick those pictures in the posts themselves. How about a picture of Mama? Love the car and Coco!

    • Hi Kate,
      I’m confused. I have never posted a picture of my uncle…
      The person smoking is supposed to be Mama. I once did a poll to see if my readers wanted to see a photo of her and the vote was mostly no. So I decided to not post anything of her and keep people’s imagination running..

        Who is the much older man that occasionally watches Coco? I am sure you had him on one of your headers (or else I’m going crazy!) I thought he was your husband’s uncle but I may be wrong. I would still be interested in seeing your mother-in-law. I can’t figure out if she looks like an old European lady or more like Joan Rivers! Anyway, I do love the modern drawing. Did you do it?

      • Ah, yes, now I remember! It was Tony, not my husband’s uncle. I did put that pic in the banner a few times. He lives in Portofino. He is bright eyed and used to always sit in front of the local church. He is a family friend and he was actually born some 90 years ago in our house! I loved those photos…he wanted me to sit on his lap, haha!

      • Kate…I didn’t do this drawing, a friend of my brother’s did it. He lives in Canada and has never read my blog. It was a bit of a struggle to get him to understand what I wanted which is why I am doing the poll.
        If you want pics of Mama send me your private email and I will send you one 🙂

    Send me a pic at kcrimmins@rcn.com. Can’t wait to see that one!
    You changed your theme too! Wow!

  4. Thank you to everyone who voted and commented!
    I have taken all votes into consideration and as you can see when you return, the home page design has been changed. I agreed, that the design was too big before and having it on a side panel meant I had to change my theme. I actually like this new theme better because now you don’t have to scroll down to see other posts from the same week 🙂 Win-Win!
    Bacione, Leah

    Much, much better:). Love your blog (have read every single post) and sense of humor and just finished reading your moms’ entire blog. You are both wonderful writers.
