tile backsplash question - quick please


I'm in the middle of installing tile backsplash in the kitchen.

Should I put a spacer between the countertop and the tile backsplash before laying the first row of tiles?

Thanks!

Ditto.
Why did you wait till you started to ask? That's cuttin' it a bit close. I don't know what kind of tile you are using, but I ususally leave 1/8" gap in order to get a good caulk joint.
