Yesterday, after I had posted, I googled 'white peacocks'. It turns out that it is supposed to be lucky to see one. Of course lots of things are supposed to be lucky, the world is full of folklore about luck and unluck, and most of it is rubbish.
However, today my bloke, (he that saw the lucky peacock), got a letter giving him some much wanted information. Information that he had given up waiting for in the belief he had been forgotten. Clearly this event is due to the sighting of the lucky peacock yesterday. I do not know if this is enough to prove the fortunate influence of the white peacock, but now I'm even more irritated that I did not see it myself.
