Hey everyone! I've been on the BYC site for a little while but I finally decided to take the plunge and say a quick hello. I'm a military gal stationed in Augusta, GA, - 7 years in the Air Force so far and still going strong. As the nature of my job does not require me to move around a lot (if ever) I have finally "settled down" and bought a house on an acre of land. Looking forward to raising some chickies, planting a small orchard and a sizable vegetable garden soon. Maybe get into goats once I decide to hang up the uniform. I'm also a big fan of bluegrass/folk/americana music and I love to play mandolin, guitar, bass, percussion, and banjo-mandolin! I look forward to hobnobbing with my fellow chicken-lovers on BYC. A lot of nice and helpful people on here.
