OK, I guess I need to explain something from my last article. I’m afraid my satire about the white deer was lost on a great number of my readers; I know this because several of you wrote to me, insisting that white deer DO actually exist. Yes, I know white deer exist… and white Moose, and white Elk, and white foxes, squirrels, weasels, rabbits and mice. I was attempting to poke fun at all those who mock Bigfoot believers by saying, “Oh, that wasn’t Sasquatch you saw – it was a bear. ” Or, “Those tracks are definitely fake”. I used the white deer issue just to illustrate my point, and I was writing completely tongue in cheek. However, it is nice to know so many people are reading my articles!
So, we had our Evening With Bigfoot in Shawnee last Saturday evening, and over 70 people showed up! The vast majority of them had never been to one of our Bigfoot evenings before, so it was pretty much a brand new crowd. There were several testimonies of visual sightings within the past year, all within 12 miles of “metro” Bailey. People often ask me what’s so special about Bailey, that there are so many Sasquatch sightings here. The simple answer is, “nothing”. I am convinced that our store could be located anywhere in the Rockies and we would register just as many class A sightings. There are simply that many Sasquatches out there.
Switching gears for a moment: we’re working feverishly on the new museum addition, though it’s taking us longer than I’d originally hoped. However, I think you’re all going to be impressed with what you’ll find – not just the new displays, but how we’re doing the lighting, sound, and a few new surprises. Can’t say more than that without giving too much away! One of my goals is to make it interesting enough to keep visitors occupied for more than 10 minutes (which is the average time most people spend in the museum). Last but definitely not least: you HAVE to check out the next Mile High Mystery Conference in Green Mtn Falls on May 4-6. We have several nationally known authors and speakers coming to talk on Bigfoot, UFO’s and Missing People. Check it out at milehighmysteryconference.com. You won’t be disappointed, especially since yours truly will be the emcee!
