    fyi - out of towners - the newspaper version includes an image of the message board front page (forums) and a big sowal sticker! :cool: :clap_1:

    I think the article was very well written and an excellent introduction to sowal.com. there are some things that are just hard to represent in a short article though - such as how the board is represented by people from so many parts of the country with diverse backgrounds and a pretty wide range of ages. south walton is the common ground. but the community encompasses so much more.

    I was proud to read all about it! :wub: :D :D glad they didn't mention the PCake thread though... tee hee. although its a perfect example of how we all came together to help out a fellow sowaller who needed to find a special local baker, and how we all got to be witness to a very happy and successful ending (bachelorette party at Red Bar, complete with photos of party and cake, and a printed book of the thread presented to the lucky bachelorette)...:lol:

    Too funny - whenever I tell people about all the Sowallers I've met, they instantly assume there must be an axe murderer in the bunch - so far, so good - haven't met one yet (that I know of anyway!)

    My kids do not get it either. When my sister found out I'd actually "met someone from the internet", she freaked. But then she prefers to vaca in PCB and thinks 30A is boring so her opinions are not filed as important. :D
