Feng Shui This Courthouse in Paris KY

Last week I went on a little excursion to Paris without leaving the state.  Our Paris is in Bourbon county, KY.  You can't get more KY than that!  While driving to Paris you can almost feel your blood pressure go down as you gaze over the beautiful green fields with their stately mansions and gorgeous horses.  And, yes...there are even a few cattle on the way.  Horses may get all the attention, (Secretariat lived here and is buried at Claiborne Farms) but here in Kentucky we also love our cattle.  Just ask them, they'll tell you.  

But, back to the courthouse.  It's a lovely old building, completed in 1905.   It's here we go to find the tax records and old deeds that realtors always seem to be flipping though.  So, looking at this massive set of steps is part of the job.   Funny though...once you get to the top of these steps we find an interesting little "situation".KY Horse Farms Paris KY

It appears that someone is messing up the landing.  Obviously, bad manners, but still an interesting little "spot".





So, I look up...and SHAZAM...there they were.  Ma and Pa Pigeon have built themselves a lovely little nest out of...wait a minute...what is that?Paris KY Horse Farms for Sale

It appears to be some sort of barbed wire.















It seems some of "it" is laying on a  nearby window ledge.

There we have it.  KY pigeons are the toughest birds ever... 

Try to block them and they'll use the wire spikes for nesting material.  They would have made great pioneers.  Or, maybe it's just this group of Paris KY pigeons?  Resourceful, dedicated, talented...and very good at making the best of a bad situation.   Apparently they like the feng shui here!

I love a good power struggle.  So far the little birdies are winning.

Monica your new HD pic is lovely! The one earring is unique! That's what I like about having you on my team. Thanks for digging through the Paris KY achives at the courthouse for me!

The earring was a last minute thing...It had a number on it, but sometimes it's best to remain anonymous...and of course, I photoshopped the flies off...nobody wants to see flies on such a lovely face!  You're very welcome...it's a beautiful drive...and always nice to see how the Pigeon family is doing.

Monica, anyone that uses that photo is OK by me, more than OK! 

And I loved the post, those are some tough birds!

Here is my baby.... He is quite a bit bigger now, and as you can see, he has Goofy on his side. His mother was my big baby, but she died after giving birth to him. So, Patrick has been promised a good life!

Thanks Andrea, I thought she was lovely, myself.  But, it did take a bit of nerve.  ;-)  People think of Lexington as only horse country, but we have some of the finest cattle farms anywhere.  

Patrick and Goofy make a good team.  Spongebob will be showing up next.

Thank you!  and you're welcome.  Some memories remain strong.   Next time you see someone riding in the BACK of a pickup...remember there may be a reason.
