Have you ever seen a peacock in full flight?

Well, this isn't it.

On the other hand ...

There he goes!

To me, he looks like something out of Harry Potter.  The eyes.

You'd think it would make up its mind which way to go.

Friends of ours (Hi, Russ and Sandy!) are on a tour of Europe, and they are emailing back photos and descriptions of the sights.  In Prague, Czech Republic, they saw these --

Part of their description said, "They had two pea hens and two peacocks in this area, too..  One of the peacocks was white, and he put on quite a show for us." 



Humor --

A man will pay $2 for a $1 item he needs.
A woman will pay $1 for a $2 item that she doesn't need but it's on sale.

There’s always a lot to be thankful for if you take time to look for it.  For example, I am sitting here thinking how nice it is that wrinkles don’t hurt.


  1. Amazing. Did I ever tell you I grew up on Peacock Drive? And my daughter was nipped by a Peahen at Cardiff Castle?

    Have to say that I never considered what they looked like in flight!

  2. I remember going to visit my grandmother who moved to Rossmoor in Walnut Creek after she was widowed--and seeing the peacocks strutting around the grounds as if they owned the place. Which, thankyouverymuch, they did.
