I'm not sure what you're doing wrong.  It's hard to understand mixed up
snippets and fragments of code.  Please:

  - don't top post
  - share complete, runnable examples (preferably minimal, too)
  - share the failure you're seeing - possibly including a traceback, or a
    description of the behavior that the program exhibits when you run it,
    and an explanation of how this differs from what you want
