When Ernest put the Christmas hat on Ferd, we noticed he was looking a bit weatherbeaten. That's flaking paint on top of his wing, not feathers.
So he came down for a little touch-up.
He needs to look his best as he has a new friend in the front yard. Now I know that technically this would be a male peacock, but look at those eyelashes! Either it's Nestor Carbonell or I'm going to give it a girl's name. I like Freya myself.
"Ferd and Freya" sounds like something out of a Norse fairy tale. Anyway, Ferd's looking pretty spiffy now.
Handy is refurbishing the truck a little, too. He didn't want to try the toothpaste trick, so he got new headlight covers (one installed on the left below). Has anyone tried polishing them with toothpaste? I'm curious to know if it would have worked.
