So what did you do last night?
Me well went to a Jr. High School Piano Recital, had chinese food, watched BL and oh yeah...rescued a peacock.
We really don't live in the country however some of the back roads are quite rural and we were on one such road last night. Long story about a prom gown that needs hemming by Saturday...won't bore you. Right after Meg's Recital Em and I head to Magnolia Springs to get her dress. The road we take is a favorite as there's one beautiful ranch that I love driving by. There's not a lot of traffic on this road but enough. As we come around a bend I see something not 4 feet from the road and swear it is a peacock. Em thinks I'm nuts it is 8pm sun's setting no way...so I turn around to prove to her I am not crazy and lo and behold it is a peacock near the side of the road just walking around. We decide to pull into the nearest driveway to find out who the owner is so we can get this bird home. As we drive up this long dirt road we are greeted by a chorus of squawks there are peacocks literally walking everywhere...we now realize this is a peacock farm/ranch. Who knew! I knocked on the door but no one was home. As we are turning around in the drive we notice that peacocks are sitting atop of a fence post so I want to take a pic, having just come from the recital I have my camera. Em tries taking it from the car but it is dusk and so not great results. I have her get out and she's freaking now that we're trespassing but takes the pictures. All awhile I am losing it over these beautiful hens just walking around. By now the bird from the road has wandered back up the drive and hops atop a fence post then down into the pasture
Ok so maybe we didn't really "rescue" the peacock, we like to believe we made it come back home, but what a great story huh
so what did you do last night lol
