It has been a quiet week on Bigfoot Ballyhoo (www.bigfootballyhoo.blogspot.com). In case you don’t know what Bigfoot Ballyhoo is I’ll explain: It’s a blog taking the format of a magazine on the subject, bigfoot. The authors/editors are Linda Newton-Perry and her husband, Christopher Perry. How does one become interested in bigfoot?
It might surprise you to know that when I first started the newspaper column, three plus years ago, I wasn’t completely sure that I believed in bigfoot. The subject, however, I found intriguing. The same goes for my husband. Since then we both have become believers.
There is just too much evidence in the way of footprints and eye witnesses to not take the subject seriously. After we withdrew our financial interest in our local paper, I began writing the bigfoot column, “A Matter of Time,” just to keep myself writing for the paper. For a time the column was published in three local papers, but two of these papers were sold and the new owners didn’t care to publish a bigfoot column.
To acquire information for the weekly column, we began Bigfoot Ballyhoo. And now, from all the sightings and information presented to Ballyhoo, Chris and I are as sure as anyone can be that this magnificent animal does indeed exist.
Of late, I’ve been going out by myself, searching for bigfoot tracks. (I also look through field glasses at the logged off hillsides for the animal.) I video these outings and put them on Ballyhoo and Youtube. I don’t go far into the forest, for several reasons. It is scary considering the forest is the home of powerful bears and snarling cougars. And, not least of these reasons, I don’t wish to get my car stuck since there are few safe places to turn around on the back roads. You may not know this, but bigfoot over the years has been sighted several times in and around the Sutherlin Valley, Oregon.
Please do take a few minutes to check out Bigfoot Ballyhoo and comment. The reason for Ballyhoo is to encourage “bigfoot talk.” The comments are monitored, so you don’t have to worry about being harassed. And, you do not have to give your name.
(Linda Newton-Perry, along with her husband Christopher Perry, is the author of several bigfoot children’s fiction books and a Viking Age novel, FORCED BLOOD THE NORSEMAN.) Until next week.
