  2. Like Miss Eartha, I too love The Handsome Family.

    My Grandad raised pigeons in his backyard as pets in a pen just like the one in these wonderful photos. He would let them out during the day, and they'd come home at night to roost. This post makes me miss him so much. Thanks for the memory this morning. :)

  3. The mood and the singers voice reminds me of swedish group The Weeping Willows. Magnus Carlsson has got that beautiful sentimental crying voice. Check them out!

    1. These pigeons are/were a type called the Passenger Pigeon, which went extinct in the early 1900s due to people being awful. We have regular ol' fat pigeons roaming America too :)
