Template challenge? Please enlighten me?

Just a way for me to keep track of all my templates I've used and added so that others can use them and hopefully not have to wait for custom approvals. I think I've referred to these as "established templates" before. I think you have to use them twice now. If you notice, if you add a template to the database, once it features there's no "recaption this meme" button on it. :(

I guess when we start using things on the site to our advantage, they feel the need to change it up and knock us back down...LOL

Did you submit 3 at once? That usually seems to hold at least one back, even if it's a common template.

One day I had two originals feature in less than two hours, and one of the popular templates took over 10 hours... :/

I've grown used to the weather here changing often and by a lot, but a 50 degree difference within a few hours was crazy even for the MO. Has been an unusually warm winter here it's really just not right lol.

It gave me the biggest headache, I get them easy ever since the neck surgery but this was almost migraine status, I even took a couple percocet "which I try to avoid" and still had to lay in the dark for a couple hours. I get really sensitive to light when that stuff hits me :/

I grew up by San Jose, but moved to the Ozarks when I was 16 ;)

Warmest winter on record, it seems. Any snow we've had is gone in a week

Sounds like MO are you in the midwest brotha? I grew up in Cali where the weather is always nice, moving out here blew my mind in many many ways ;)

Northeast of that. North Central Indiana. About 10 minutes from Michigan line.

Not a huge distance from the Ozarks, I've noticed most people in the midwest have had a really warm winter.

This little pocket seems to miss a lot of the bad stuff. Not always, but usually. I've seen it snow 5+ inches across the state line, across the county line, and even the Southern part of the county, but here, maybe an inch. When Mt St Helen blew back in '82, we had a real mild winter. No snow from the day after Thanksgiving until Groundhogs Day. I'd just got off work, sitting at the kitchen table and reading the newspaper. The radio was on and said Phil predicted an early spring. It snowed nearly every day for the next month.

I've seen winters here be very cold, nothing like up north but we did have that record breaking ice storm where come people lost power for weeks. People flooded the libraries and coffee shops just to charge their phones and get warm. Only time in my life I was ever afraid to walk under a tree. They were literally exploding and dropping huge limbs. My friend had just returned from Afghanistan and couldn't sleep at all with the tree's cracking like the sound of gun shots. I was lucky I only lost power for 3 days, I literally couldn't tell people they were so miserable and the few people I mistakenly told took it badly. Like telling a person who was dying of thirst that you had just filled your giant new fish tank lol.

That's how it is around the surrounding area. People can go weeks without power. Gas furnaces don't heat without electric. Few homes have wood burners, aside from the Amish. To many old. Victorian houses, rentals, in the area, but not a single fire place

It can really open your eyes to how dependent on electricity people are. We have done many things to become as self sufficient as possible. We raise chickens and added a wood burning stove to our greenhouse along with a separate propane tank for the propane stove that was already out there.
Propane went up to $5 a gallon during the storm so we figured a wood burning stove for back up was good in case we had a lot of food growing out there and couldn't get propane. It can be a lot of work at times but it's worth it.
Water is another thing, sure if there is ice everywhere you won't die from dehydration. But we have two burpee water filters that can take just about any water and make it drinkable. Really want to put solar panels up for at least the well and our multiple freezers full of everything from venison to a giant collection of seeds. Having enough food to last a year to give us time to grow and harvest more just seems too important not to have.
Our neighbor incubates chickens all the time so if we ever needed chicks to raise we have a nearly unlimited supply. And of course books on everything, not just for entertainment but basic knowledge that people won't have access to without the internet. May sound a bit crazy to some but being prepared doesn't make you paranoid, it makes you and your family able to live if things ever do hit the fan.

Mom was a farm girl through most of the depression. She taught us how to survive. My ex made sure we never got ahead. If I earned $100, she'd spend $101 of it.

I'm still to far in debt that I couldn't get financing to buy a $20K house a few years ago. The "dollar houses" they used to advertise were anything but. My youngest girl is a lot like my mom. If things change in the next year, we may be headed back to the southwest. I'll go along to take care of the girls, since I'm on disability, but her and her business partner are already sizing up things there.

I have some ideas too.

Sounds cool bro, we have a lot in common it seems. Also disabled, in fact it was right after my spinal fusion in my neck that I was laid up and found this site. Think I would have lost my mind stuck in bed with a neck brace on for weeks if not for imgflip.

You are a very intelligent man, I'm sure you will find a way to make things work out. My ex-wife also did all she could to spend every cent I earned plus get credit cards in my name I knew nothing about. Before taking off on me and our daughter she didn't pay any bills for 3 months and stole my tax return. I almost lost the house her daughter lived in and she couldn't have cared less.

Then a few years later she wanted me to send our daughter to a military base in Germany for the entire summer. Literally expected me to put my 5 yr old little angel on a plane by herself to another country because she forced her 3rd husband to re-enlist for the sign on bonus. I spent 3 grand fighting that one and actually lost, only I got my lawyer to drag it out so long she had already moved back which I knew would happen. My daughter is 16 now and has maybe spent a years worth of time with her mother her entire life, I'm glad I've been lucky enough to always have her. Yet I feel sorry for her having such a horrible mother that only cares about money.

Whoops long ass life story sharing alert lol.

Mine is bum ticker and COPD. Had heart surgery 2weeks before my 51st birthday. The doctor I went to for my Social Security physical, according to my sister, the nurse, was the toughest doctor in the area on those exams. She said the odds were against me getting it, but I did.

I do a little here, a little there, to help my budget. I always seem to get those extra $$$when I need it.

After my wife kicked me out, she realized she made a big mistake. She didn't have any income other than what our oldest and her husband could provide. Her heart was worse than mine, but she hadn't got enough credits to get social security. Her only choice was to go to work. She lasted about three months, enough to get her credits, and had a stroke. She gets less than $300 a month on disability, but she paid for the divorce because I wouldn't file. Our kids are grown with kids of their own. All but one of my grandkids have hit puberty, but that'll happen within the next few years.

I stayed with her 38 years. I wanted to make it work. But she didn't. Our two youngest see the roadblocks she set up in not just my life, but theirs, and resent it. Or, like when I told my son we separated, his reply was, "About time." LOL.

I have the best relationship with my two youngest than I ever had. A great relationship with my granddaughters, although I only see the one once in a blue moon, and, dispute what they heat at home, my grandson's. At least two of them that I formed a super bond with when they were little.

You definitely don't act your age, but I mean that as a compliment like I hope people mean it when they say it about me lol. Your jokes and memes have the ability to appeal to all age groups is what I mean by it, your mind isn't closed to new ideas as far as I can tell. Must be the comedic writer in you, comedy has always been ageless ;)

I better get some sleep my youngest is 5, somehow I found two women more than willing to give me the responsibility of raising our kids. Their loss both of mine are blessings and I couldn't be happier with the situation, well child support would be nice, but my own lawyer laughed when i mentioned that. Funny how one sided all that is!

As always I've enjoyed chatting with ya, have a good night :)
