If you look back in the trees, you can see the men building the forms for the foundation. The pickup and trailer has all their equipment.
This picture shows the cement truck pouring the cement into the forms. It was 107 yesterday, so a pretty hot day to be working in the sun. Once the men got the forms built, it was going to be about an hour before the cement truck arrived, so they all ran over to the river and went for a swim. I bet that was a refreshing break. They got the project all done, and now we should be ready for the next phase of construction. Mrs. PJM was at work, so she missed the excitement. When she got home, she did not notice the foundation had been done, and I did not tell her. Hopefully she will come home soon and be surprised to see the whole job done. Yep, that would get me a tractor next Birthday for sure.
For those of you who might be thinking of getting peacocks, I have been experimenting to see what they like to eat. These are my preliminary results.
What Peacocks Like to Eat: (In order of their preferences)
1) Boiled Eggs
2) That slimy seed pouch in the middle of a cantaloupe
3) Ripe tomatoes
4) Bing Cherries
5) Lettuce (not the normal lettuce, but the fancy kind)
6) Peacock food (the kind from the feed store)
What Peacocks do not Like to Eat:
1) Wolf canned chili
2) Bush's baked beans
So, I think I am homing in on a good diet for them. I still think we should not provide their food, but let them forage, but Mrs. PJM still insists that we feed them.
