    The football-shaped piece is the wing.

    So where is the little football-shaped piece supposed to go? Inquiring minds want to know.

    It's Thanksgiving 2011 and still no larger pics. Hum....I thought Martha would be on top of things. She probably doesn't even know about this issue.

    I'm with you! Link thumbnails to larger pictures. MS staff doesn't pay attention to our comments nor to our emails, sadly. I've written on several occasions about incomplete recipes, items with missing pictures (red x pizza boxes) all get no response, no reply, nor do the problems get fixed. :/ Sad that MS who is precise and particular would allow this to continue for years as it has. Shame on you staffers!

    Is there any reason why these pics can't be linked to larger versions? I mean, this is 2010, for godssake. And a good portion of us baby boomers are half blind. *lol*

    Or have I missed something?

    Mine printed fine. You need adobe reader...

  • grigsby08 16 Nov, 2008

    Maybe you should copy the template from what ever program that comes up when you click template to Microsoft Word or Notebook or something and see if it will do it then...

  • grigsby08 16 Nov, 2008

    Maybe you should copy it and put it onto microsoft word or something and see how that does for you.

    This is adorable. I'm creating a file of activities to do with my nieces, as they are growing up and are old enough to do these things. Thank you and keep them coming.
