MY 65 YEAR LOVE OF PIGEONS BY JIM EMERTON.


As a toddler i was mesmerised by the sight of some red Sweet Williams flowers,and fell in love the colours,sights and sounds of nature. At 3 years of age,the introverted ,sensitive boy was introduced to pigeons by his father at Skegness,Lincs. Since then i have held a profound love for the humble beauty of the pigeon. By 5 years of age we had Priests,Rollers and other fancy breeds to let out,fly and manage. A pencil blue race strag would ignite my curiosity in the racing pigeon. The fascination would endure for 63 years. By 55 i was living as a countryboy in the idyllic village of Skendleby,flying a kit of rollers from our 3 acres of Post Office grounds and menagerie of all creatures great and small. Life was free,joyous ,and the rural life intoxicating. My desire for racers grew as i became obsessed by competitive speed. I started to evolve into a rugged young shooting man too, and later enjoyed wildfowling adventures with Kenzie The Wild Goose Man-a famous Wash wildfowler and Tv personality. My scholastic interests became so strong that i would later train as a Kew horticulturist and science teacher,with degree courses and 11 years as a student in sciences and arts. Real pigeon racing was post 76 onwards at Sycamore Cottage Holtby with success from 71 to 879 miles with my own strain of birds. Mother died at 92 years in 2005. My parents were the genesis of my psyche and success in life! 12 years ago i started to write special features for the mags,and for Mensa of which i am a prolific writer. Now as an author of 8 books on Amazon, my lifes work and global travels and colourful life are expressed in books and other literature. May i thank all the great people who have graced my fascinating life in love with nature and the beautiful pigeon.
