People ask us, “Have you ever seen Bigfoot up there where you live?” When I admit that I have not, their disappointment is enormous. However, although I’ve never actually seen him myself, and do not expect to, I have seen those who search for him.
For instance, the Discovery Channel stayed in our cabins when they came looking, proving of course, that Peckerwood Knob IS the best place to seek out the Proud Tall One. Five men and women, originating from various locations from London to Oklahoma, came and set up camera and sound in our Sunset Cabin. On the ground twenty feet below the deck, the perfect Bigfoot viewing area, they placed huge chunks of beef. (And me wondering what to fix for supper! Wish I’d know about that!)
A major ice storm set in. The electricity went out. We went up to see how they were faring. They were elated! “We’re getting some really spooky footage. It’s perfect!”
Ah, another satisfied customer at Peckerwood Lodge!
You can see this spooky footage, probably have seen it, at Bigfootville on the Discovery Channel. Yes, that was taken at Peckerwood Knob, which, let me note, does not always … actually hardly ever … looks that creepy.
Bigfoot seekers are sometimes perturbed to hear that we, who live here, have never actually met the big fellow. Just because we’ve never met, doesn’t mean we don’t give him his due respect. Country folk are like that. If he doesn’t want to be neighborly, (and who can blame him!) that’s his option, and we leave him be.
The truth is that it’s Mrs. Sasquatch who’s the goer and doer. (Don’t ever call her Ms! She’s proud of her man.)
She was up for a cup of sugar just last night. Had a nice talk about the hit she made at church redecorating the nursery, which led to her lengthy and quite humorous rendition of her efforts to decorate at home. Hilarious! Must be quite a struggle, however, she assures me, she does have what it takes to work around a very large, and usually immobile, mass of furry male, even his famous, but problematic, colossal feet. And of course, he loves his ATV, so there’s always time to get her work done while he’s gone.
You may ask, Is it kind? Is it truthful, never to introduce her to those who seek the big guy?
Maybe not, but … they never ask about her.
