Last week, no bigfoot sightings were brought to the attention of Bigfoot Ballyhoo or this newspaper column. I spoke, however, to several people about bigfoot. If appropriate, I always ask the one I’m talking with if he/she is a bigfoot believer. (Bigfoot Ballyhoo is an online bigfoot magazine. Here is its address: www.bigfootballyhoo.blogspot.com.)
If you are a bigfoot believer and read the copious information available, especially on line, you know that most bigfoot sightings are not reported. What a shame. Readers, if you talk about your sighting, it may very well make its way to the various sites online. On many of these sites a name is not required. I would suggest telling your friends not to give your name when retelling the sighting. Or if you’re a brave soul and don’t mind being known as a bigfoot believer, shout it from the rooftops. We need more of your kind.
What’s to be gained by everyone knowing bigfoot exists? What are the ramifications? I certainly don’t know. I’m just very interested in the animal. If bigfoot exists and I believe it does, I’d like it announced by whatever agency announces such things. Once we are told bigfoot exists, we can watch for it. The snickering and snide remarks will then vanish. The subject and our interest in the subject will finally become honorable.
Fall is here and more people will be in the forests. We know hunters are out there, but another group may be out as well. And what group is that, you ask? Gold panning is very popular now that gold hovers around $1,800 an ounce. So if you are enjoying the hunt for the shiny stuff, watch also for our furry friend, bigfoot. You never know where the gold is and you never know when bigfoot will wake from a nap and scare the living daylights out of you. Whether you are searching for bigfoot or gold, find either and you’re in for a heart-pounding experience.
Tell your children that on the online bigfoot magazine, Bigfoot Ballyhoo, weekends have things of interest to children. The magazine prides itself on wholesome, child-friendly articles and videos. I might add that it is becoming more difficult to find clean videos on Youtube. What is alarming is the number of profanity-laced, child-produced videos.
Linda Newton-Perry along with her husband, Christopher Perry, is the author of several children’s bigfoot fiction books, and one Viking Age Novel. Until next week.
