    The time has come. We sign all papers on our place tomorrow, pick up the U-Haul, pack it Fri and Saturday and leave Sunday to become permanent FL residents! :wave:

    We will rent in Destin till mid December, when HOPEFULLY, our house will be finished and we can become permanent residents of SoWal - Blue Mtn. Beach!

    Thanks so much for being so welcoming and above all, ENTERTAINING :rolling:

    I have really found a nest of wonderful folk and thanks for sharing your piece of paradise with me.

    Look forward to saying howdy in person one day. This is me and my dh (whom we will call Moondoggie as he was Gidget's beau in the movies) > :clap_1::clap_1:

    See you on the beach, or in the store, or in Red Bar, or in the dog park....... ;-)

    The official Sowal greeting is "the otter flies at midnight". :wave:

    Say it to random people who seem to be staring at you in bars and restaurants. If they're Sowallers, they know what it means, if they aren't you win the "crazy" game and they'll leave you alone. :D

    Wow.. Had decided SoWallers were mostly vermin-fixated. I keep hearing people say: "The other flies are mid-size..." I've smiled and answered things like, "yes, but there are some big ones at the beach...." :dunno:

    Near the ATL and in SoWal as often as possible
    I didn't want to leave Seagrove today, but renters were coming in. We are working on downsizing so that we don't need to rent. Then I can spend 5 months a year at the beach.:wub:

    Gidget, welcome to paradise!
