Cowart's Common Room
Faith - Pigeon Race

Did you know that on Wednesday there will be a pigeon race between the House of Lords and the House of Commons for the first time in 90 years? Me neither.

I just saw a headline - I do not know any details but thought you might.
Where do you race pigeons these days?

I suppose the Lords pigeons are white with black flecks while the Commons pigeons will be grey.

First one home wins a House of Commons (or Lords) peanut
Very Happy

Re:
Fairy Nuff's Avatar How interesting, I looked it up, they used to do it every year until 1918 so this one is to raise money for the forces charities to commemorate the 100 years since the war with every MP being designated a pigeon.
