    Just wanted to introduce myself to everything be and admin. Scott here in Houston.

    I'm recently retired (disabled/arthritis) and after 2 years of retirement and searching for a hobby I've finally found my niche in my finch aviaries and hope to expand to a small urban coop with a few urban yard birds by next summer.

    I was so glad to stumble across this site and forum. I've been searching for a community to learn and share with for weeks without much luck. But 20 minutes here and I felt right at home.

    I will spend some time reviewing the rules and exploring the forum. I'm sure most of my time this summer will be in the pets forum but hope to glean enough knowledge and courage to start a coop by next spring.

    Yes, I prefer using a laptop to type. I don't know how people do a lot of typing on a tablet or phone. I am all fumble fingers on those small spaces. Keyboards for me! Ha!

    Yes, you can edit a post later on however I believe after one week you are unable?? I can't remember. [​IMG] However if you ever need to change something or edit something out and the edit time has passed, you can always contact me and I can change it for you. (I am a moderator here. :)

    I was looking the FAQ's for that answer and I assume it's a time and/or rep thing. No worries.... The older I get the less I worry about the little things. :p
