Naming Flannery's Peafowl - A Success Story!
So after my trip to Andalusia in January, I suggested they name the new peafowl from characters is the O'Connor short story "Good Country People." I suggested the peacock be named Manley Pointer, and the peahens (there are 2) be named Joy and Hulga. (There is a character in the story whose name is Joy but she prefers to be called Hulga. Don't you want to read this right now?)
I have to give some props to my friend Candace from grad school who, when I was trying to decide about my nomination, reaffirmed by Joy Hulga suggestion.
Check out the info here and check out all the cool stuff about Andalusia. Also, if you're able, please consider making a donation to the Andalusia Foundation. It's an amazing thing they do and they work really hard to keep O'Connor's former home in great condition. Be sure to visit if you get the chance!
