Places to call home.

During the last two weeks, I've interviewed, visited and written stories on two very different places that people call home. (Royalty live in both of them.)

On Saturday, I take you to the condo of very eligible bachelor/2008 Krewe of Gemini King Dr. Tobin H. Grigsby. A popular man in town, his condo is in the old Crystal Oil Building at Milam and Market. He and Stewart Madison are developing it for offices and condos.

"Mr. Brooks" was filmed here and there are pictures of Tobin with actor Kevin Costner.

His parties are legend.

And, he loves downtown living.

I love his condo. You'll read about: His round bed. (Where in the world do you get one?) We tell you. And the sheets and the bed cover? We'll reveal that two.

And the fact that he has nine up-to-date televisions. A kitchen with a seven-foot granite bar. A regulation pool table.

Read all about it Saturday on the Home & Garden Page.

... On March 22, I'll take you to the historic Davis Homeplace at 804 Wilkinson in the heart of Highland, where Terry Gill and wife Marsha Millican-Gill and their daughter, Ashley, hang their hats. (Millican-Gill is a former Krewe of Highland queen.)

The house was built circa 1916 and, until the family bought it in 2002 years ago, it had been in the same family since that time.

You'll read about the house's ghosts, the pieces that came from a very prominent local family whose roots reach back to the first rector of St. Mark's Episcopal Cathedral, a most unusual desk and such Shreveport memorabilia as a 1943 Shreveport telephone directory.

See more photos from both of these on separate galleries at http://www.shreveporttimes.com/ before they are printed.

Do you have ideas for houses that I might write about. Send 'em my way.
