Feeling Cooped Up

Talk about being pigeonholed!

Dovecote

I believe that is a dovecote. The doves roost in the upper part while their dropping fall and are deposited in the bottom area and used for fertilizer. I saw one exactly like this at the LSU Rural Life Museum in Baton Rouge, LA.

Good thinking

Smart idea to concentrate all your histoplasmosis in one convenient area. This has got to work about like a two-story outhouse.

Camelot Adjacent

I could be mistaken, but is this the same Hickory Hill that Robert F. Kennedy and his family lived in? It had originally been purchased by Jackie Kennedy for her and Jack, but when Bobby's family grew exponentially larger than theirs, she sold it to him.
