Went to a pigeon museum in Oklahoma City (really, we did!). From what I remember, there are genealogy charts for the pigeons (much like the blood lines of horses). The military history of the pigeon Cher Ami (in the Wikipedia link) was also mentioned in the TV show White Collar last week. What a nice reminder of our visit to OK. http://palms-americana.blogspot.com/2010/11/drive-in-oklahoma-city.html
Thanks, Dorene.Palms RV, who knew that pigeons were famous enough to have a museum devoted to them. Your post was very interesting. Thanks for including the link.
Funny! I think I'll have to learn to text (I currently have it blocked on my phone).
I love both the cartoon and the carrier pigeon info. Who knew?
I love the cartoon - fantastic.
I'm grateful for your comments. Thank you.
