I’m “throned on highest bliss” (Milton) with my high-speed internet connection. It’s great to work and not forget what I was doing before the page loads. The dial-up connection that I had was just s o o o slow. And, I’m enjoying my new Bigfoot/Sasquatch blog, with the ability to quickly make changes, add photos and so on, it’s a real joy. Here is the address if you’d like to check it out: http://bigfootballyhoo.blogspot.com.
Another pleasure, I enjoyed this last week; I exchanged our three children’s Bigfoot books for two years of Daniel Perez’s Bigfoot Times, a Bigfoot newsletter. I’ve read two of them and have already learned so much about the Bigfoot community. The newsletter cost $14. per year, ($15. Canada, $17. rest of the world) and comes by mail, monthly. Perez is a veteran Bigfoot investigator/researcher. If you’re interested at all in the subject of Bigfoot/Sasquatch, I’d recommend this newsletter. His address is 10926 Milano Avenue, Norwalk, California 90650-1638. (If you are reading this on the blog, the link is below.)
The blog I’ve started is just a casual place to discuss Bigfoot/Sasquatch, to report sightings, and get feedback from others that enjoy the subject. I’m certainly not an expert on the subject of these forest animals. I just happen to write a newspaper column and have written, along with my husband, three Bigfoot children’s books.
One comment in Perez’s newsletter that I thought was interesting; Perez or one of the guest writers thought that all the conferences being held across the states were diluting the serious business of collecting and studying information of Bigfoot/Sasquatch. That may be true; I think of it, however, as proof that this subject appeals to many, many people. And perhaps soon more people will step forward with their sightings and not be concerned with being embarrassed or not taken seriously. Even I, and my husband, have thought that if we did see one of these animals, that we’d probably keep it to ourselves. Chris and I live in the thickly forested state of Oregon and we wonder what will happen to the timber industry, hunting, and recreational use, if this animal is “found.”
