Back In My Day Meme | I saw Rush before CDs were invented! | image tagged in memes,back in my day | made w/ Imgflip meme maker
Nice! I'll drop a clue to my age right here, but I saw them on the "Moving Pictures" tour when I was a junior in HS, around '80 or '81...LOL!

Were you Navy or Marine Corps? Didn't know that you served! I was USMC, 1982 - 2004.

I THOUGHT THAT I KNEW YOU FROM SOMEWHERE! | made w/ Imgflip meme maker
I loved Miramar, both while is was NAS and after it became a MCAS.

I was in 29 Palms (a craphole) and my kids had to go to Balboa a lot for Dr appointments, so we would stay at the TLF at Miramar. It was cheaper than hotels and a nice base.

There's nothing new after the 3 blue star diamond that you get at 1,200,000 points until you get 9,999,999 points...then you get an icon similar to this one...

The east coast is great and if you plan on going, I would go during hurricane season because they are fun, especially when the power goes out for 3-4weeks at a time.

I think the rural, small town life has spoiled me because whenever I am in a congested city and have to wait through more than one light to finally get to cross an intersection I get irritated.

Yeah and not having to drive more than a few miles to get "anywhere" in town. Save a lot of $$$ on gas living in a smaller town as well.

The only explanation is that the people below you with more upvotes have been downvoted by someone...that's all I can think of.

I'll give them all a round of upvotes and see what happens. I don't understand how anyone thinks hitting the downvote button for no apparent reason is fun.

Would you leave it black with just a title or meme it?
reply
2 ups, 1 reply
Not quite sure what you're asking...did you mean leave it blank? I see no need for two pictures...one does well enough unless you're planning to put more text in the bottom.
reply
2 ups, 1 reply
No just one picture. Either the top one with words
or bottom blank with just a title
reply
2 ups, 1 reply
Me...I would do the top one with just "it''s a trap at the bottom...I would lose the word literally.
