Under Construction ~ Woodsterman Style

 I'll bet you think this is a spoof about
construction workers .... well a little of
that too. We at Woodsterman try not to
be too serious about most things.
 This May the old Woodsterman blog will be
six years old. We've never given the old boy
(the site NOT the avatar ... NEVER!) a face
lift. This template is Sooooo old it can hardly
be modified. 
 Those of you new to blogger have probably never
heard of the template "Minima". All of the things you
see on this blog as far as width (this is wider than
standard) and the like used to have to be tweaked
in the HTML.
 I can't just go into the HTML any longer and tweak
the old girl. Google barely supports this
template any more. So, I've made a management
decision and decided to go modern. Over the next
couple of hours, days, weeks, or even months I'll
be giving the old girl a facelift. 

You know me as only serious sometimes, so I had
to post these pictures along with this announcement.
 The last straw is lately comments were being corrupted
with non Java gibberish or something. That is why you
see I've gone back to the drop down window. 

As some of you know, a few others and I have another
blog. It started out successful but slowed down do to,
I would have to say, a lack of interest. I've been keeping
it going. It has been much easier to maintain do to its
newer template. I can even add sexy backgrounds. Here's
a LINK so you can see what I mean.

I'm just changing the ease of posting and maintaining.
Things will stay as goofy around here as always ... 

PROMISE!

As long as you don't use that naked picture of me on the bear rug I just sent you as a background, I'm OK with the makeover. ;)

A makeover that makes your blogging life easier is good, but I'll hold you to your promise about not changing the content.

Crazy is good.

We look forward with great anticipation to the "modernization" of the site we've come to love as much as the man that is it's proprietor.

Have a most excellent Sunday.

You'll figure out what you want to do. The new blogger templates are pretty nice. You can have them any size you want them too. You'll do great. You're crafty that way.

Have a fabulous Silly Sunday. I linked you as I always do. ☺

Construction or Destruction? That is the question.

Woodsterman (Odie) said...

Timothy, I guy has to do what a guy has to do.

Heavy Erection In Progress?

At our age, I guess so, but, yeah, I had to do the same thing with my PC.

Pain in the neck, but time and tide are no respecters of maturity.

Just remember the words of George Peppard, "We have 5000 years of old things and 50 years of new things, so it stands to reason there are more good old things than good new things".

messymimi said...

Love the pics, have a great Silly Sunday!

Woodsterman (Odie) said...

Edutcher, at least that's what I've been told. It always feels just right to me.

Ah yes that great philosopher George Peppard.

Woodsterman (Odie) said...

messymimi, thanks ... back at you.

We are a painting contractor and that means our company is involve in the construction industry. I once told a joke in the office and said, 'Now I know that the words 'erected' and 'erection' are not really bad ;o)

Woodsterman (Odie) said...

Abelle, how could it ever be a bad thing.
