in payitforward •  3 months ago 


This post is over a week past due. Very sorry about this, but real life got in the way. Between having my biggest show of the year and Grandparents who both have dementia and had "issues" last week including each of them falling life was completely crazy. I will get the winner post for week 81 up within 24 hours.

Special Thanks to Our Judges

This week we are giving a small thank you to the Judges and giving a 5% beneficiary to each from this post. It's a small amount, but wanted to give a little back to our judges.



All steem-bounty payouts should have happened by now. Special thanks to @knircky, he is the brains behind @steem-bounty and he does a lot to help boost the contest posts allowing for higher rewards.


Staked Tokens - Show Support of Tribes

@pifc has started to build up a couple tokens to help add extra value to our community. Posts with #palnet, #neoxian, #creativecoin or #marlians will gain a small bonus as we have staked tokens from each of them.

If any of these tribes prefer we not use their tag and/or not try and help expand the curation of their tag feel free to message @thedarkhorse on discord (#6765) or leave a comment below. Our goal in using the tag is to allow members of these tribes to have an extra way to earn rewards and more importantly gain exposure for their posts.

If there are other Tokens you want to see @pifc start staking please let us know which one and the focus of the token. Currently we are only staking Tokens that are for general content, but are open to others if there is demand from our community.

Congratulations to everyone, just a quick drive by to drop off a Sbi share for @yourseldom!

Family emergency has led to us going back & forth to the hospital @pifc, so not sure when I will get to this. But ... I will not forget ...

Hope everything ends up ok. Part of why I was so late was 2 different nights spent at the hospital with the grandparents due to falls, once each in a week during my busiest week of the year...not time I had to spare but you do what you need to do for family. Sucks when you reach a point that you can't remember that you must use a walker. My Grandma many days thinks she still has kids in college...she hasn't had that in 40 years.

Thank you for the well wishes. Sorry to hear that you are also experiencing difficulties with your loved ones @thedarkhorse.

My wife works for an elderly care service. She brings home similar stories almost weekly. "Seasons" of our lives, over which we have no control ... We routinely talk about we'll do, when it's our turn. Not that far off now ...

For now, in our case, it is on the other end of the cycle of life. A family member in the hospital, with a pregnancy in great distress ...

As hard as it is dealing with the issues surrounding my Grandparents old age it's a blessing to have them with us still. It's actually his birthday today and just got off the phone with him. I asked him how old he turned and sadly he thought he was 99 and couldn't remember what year he was born. He is actually 93 which is up there so I don't mind when he can't remember things.

We are lucky, well at least I am along with my family. When they forget things they are still completely civil with us. They still love seeing us, they get a smile on their faces the second we walk in, we can hear the joy in their voices when we call. My Grandmother tends to lash out at other family members, but not me. So many people get very nasty when they start forgetting things and for now at least we aren't dealing with this directly.

As for a hard pregnancy, we have been there too with our family. My Sister Inlaw (@bjgeese's) Wife almost died giving birth to their first child, lost their second, and ended up with an emergency c-section 2+ months early for their second (or third base on how you look at it). It's really hard when a pregnancy has issues since there is also a baby that everyone is worrying about. Decisions impact 2 people and what is best for one very well may not be best for the other. It can be very hard on the Mother to be with these decisions and all I can say is it really needs to be her decision and everyone just needs to be supportive if it comes down to hard decisions (even if you don't like them).

My thoughts are with you and your family. Hope that Mom and Baby both manage to get past this and it just becomes a story of perseverance that can be told down the road.

Do take care! My prayers are with you and your family. I hope all will be well soon 🙏🙏

Congratulations to all the winners and participants! ^_^

!giphy congratulations

I hope your grandparents are both okay. :D Life is getting more and more hectic as it goes along, or it seems that way to me at least. :D Your grandparents are lucky you're there for them. :D

Congratulations to all the winners. :D

Best of luck to all those participating in the next round. :D

God bless you. :D Have an awesome day! :D

Thank you very much for your well wishes. They are both doing much better after their falls and luckily only had some bruises. These falls weren't anything a younger person would even think twice about, but due to their age it becomes a scary thing.

I checked out your blog and like your posts of gratitude. People need to remember to be thankful for what they have.

You're most welcome. :D It's hard watching an elderly loved one hurt themselves in a fall or slip, I'm well aware of how painful either can be. :D

Thanks for coming by for a visit. :D I'm glad you liked my #gratefulvibes post. :D

Amen to that, it was actually @paradise-found the founder of #gratefulvibes that reminded me of that and caused me to start writing my #gratefulvibes posts. :D

God bless you and your wonderful family. :D Have an awesome day my friend! :D

I know I'm a bit behind but late is better than never.

@iamraincrystal: here's your SBI Share for the win.
@marieeedraws, @andreasalas: here's an extra SBI Share just because I can.


Thank you so much 😘😘
