    Thought I'd posted... can't see, but yesterday I saw 6 pigeons glistening against the blue part of the sky. The sun caught them a treat as they turn slightly sideways to curve. Two pied, like chequers. Two blues and two whites.
    Was enjoyed to see … then so sad, and bringing home again how much I miss them.
    Do fond memories help? Or do they add to the sorrow of what you are missing … and in a strange way still wanting?
    Just had the reminder that it is the A

    Yes most days I see the pigeons in town, or the ones hanging around here after their Old Cinema loft was pulled down. I cracking chequer pied cock bird... . Never near enough to see if rung... or never showed an interest in entering my loft. Oft chasing the hens of mine on roofs … well did. Yes I would have had no hesitation in breeding from him. Maybe was one of mine lost off the top...!

    Just had a reminder texted me from one sec regards the A.G.M. this coming Monday and needs my resignation etc. Ahh sigh ...

    Daz,
    It is now a couple of years since I gave all my pigeons away, to say it was heart breaking is an understatement.

    I could have sold them but to see one or two go at a time would have broke my heart even more.

    I never took any money from clubs the love of the pigeons was enough for me, and I was repaid a milluion fold for the effort I put in.

    I still miss them every day, how can you not after 75 years or more.

    I have considered just having a few pets, although all my pigeons have been pets to me.

    And if any old favourite returned t would not go anywhere, and I do look out every day in the hope of seeing a old favourite.

    But time takes it's toll with humans at the present time and I for one am overjoyed at having the partnership with our feathered friends for such a long period.

    It does HURT DAz, but one has to think of our featherd friends and the pleasure they have afforded.


    Best Wishes Daz.



    Regards.

    I posted in a Canadian pigeon site this. Winning ways were the topic. So I stated that winning is nice. Love it. But!! I am not going to any means or extremes to do it. Won my share. All distances. I am here to fly and compete and enjoy my birds. The only person I have to please is myself.

    Misty. once again you are in the same vein as me.
    Often others fanciers often smile or irk when I used to say 'I love my pigeons. No not look after them and care for them 'I love my pigeons.


    Was a time, when regardless of time, weather etc. Nothing was a hinderance or a bother.
    Indeed it was the other way a round... Bother was dodging holidays and going away for a time.
