    Just wondering what led everyone to this message board. I first found it after Ivan and soon realized that it was the BEST source of info. for South Walton. I did lurk a bit on the old Graytonbeach.com message board. Smiling JOe and River Otter where there too. I thought they were a lot older than they really are (though I still haven't met either of them). I am a loyal SoWaller first and foremost because Kurt is a great guy and I want to support his endeavors. Second, I can't go a day without at least lurking to see what everyone is up to. :D

    Googling for rentals in Grayton that weren't with the rental companies- VRBO's and such.

    God you get more and more interesting every time.

    My mom used to post on the Graytonbeach.com website and we made fun of her. Not sure how we ended up here...but I think it had something to do with the fact that I always came on to look at Kurt's pics. Then I bought some from him. And Laner oops...W-Funn and I used it during Hurricane Dennis!

    Many positive things came from, and continue to come from that relationship. "Ex" does not have to be a bad word. We all have a choice to make it what we want to.

    Girl, you did not offend me. Just want you to know that divorce does not always equate to hatred.

    Just googling up and down 30-A looking for a site to stay connected to the SoWal area. I posted every now and again. Ivan definitely unified everyone. I stayed up most of the night. I did the Snoopy dance when I saw Kurt's first psot the next day! If Kurt was there, it gave us all a reason to hope.

    We all know that you wouldn't hate anybody (even dune crashers--you may hate what they are doing, but not the person).

    GTTBM- this is off topic (of course). What is the Snoopy dance?

    You know when Snoopy gets happy in one of the little Peanut specials and does his little happy dance?

    When my son was little I was dancing around the kitchen over something that made me happy one day. He giggled and pointed at me and said, "silly Mommy you do the Snoopy dance." Sorry I forget you all haven't lived in my "nut house." Charlie Brown Christmas is coming on soon watch it. Then we can all do the Snoopy!:floor:

    My reason is exactly the same except for the Snoopy dance. I would have if I'd thought about it! I have read and kept up with everything and I hope I'm still accepted if I only post now and then. The pictures and updates keep me going until the next beach trip!

    Found this board during Ivan too, Googling around, frustrated because there was no info on SoWal (of course I did not know to call it SoWal then.) I was so impressed by not just the breadth of information, but the real kindnesses shown by so many, especially Kurt and SJ. :clap_1: I lurked on and off for about a year. In June I finally registered just to PM somebody who was looking for a rental house. Pure capitalism. :oops: But I posted a couple of times before Dennis came, and then never left, though I lurk a lot. It seems like so long ago!

    Though I never really felt like a part of this board until I set foot in the lounge. Y'all only scare me a little bit. :floor:

    Gotcha! I need to practice that one! Earlier tonight, Kate and I were doing the moves from the middle school dance team routine. Now we can go to a strip club audition. I think the Snoopy dance may be a bit more wholesome, unless you do it naked!
