I did not know until just a few moments ago that there was an entire website dedicated to Bigfoot sightings in Kentucky! I got a little shock of my own the 2nd time I looked at the little Kentucky outline on the homepage ... and am almost positive I didn't see what was there the first time around. Of course, I could just be tired and unobservant as well.

The colors and graphics lend well to the spooky theme and the link hovers are really ... well, just cute! :) When I visited, there had been 35,410 hits since January of 2006, and more than 20 reported sightings since the end of February 2007.

Even my husband and FIL claim to have seen "something" in the creek bottom area on FIL's land. Considering FIL doesn't even go down there during the day without a gun, I imagine it would be quite eerie at night. (That and the facts that there are wild animals that roam about back there and some folks from the area have been known to cross the fenceline and plant a little patch of marijuana on FIL's property and don't like visitors, KWIM?)

The way my husband tells it, they were walking down opposite sides of the clearing when something ran between them. There was not a lot of light that evening, so it was hard to see. It's funny really, when the moon is full, you can drive out in the country here without headlights and have no problem. Last night the power went off in our neighborhood, and I stepped out onto the back porch and could not see 5 feet in front of my nose!

Having never seen a creature like this myself, it is hard to express belief OR disbelief. But I know that there are "more things in heaven and earth than are dreamt of in my philosophy" (from Hamlet-by W. Shakespeare).

So, do you have an encounter story? A ghost story? Do you think it's all delusions and hooey? Let me know in a comment! :)


  1. I personally haven't, well... I take that back. Shortly after my cat Samuel was put down I remember I had taken some sleeping pills to calm down and sleep (he was more than a cat... he was like a kid to me and I took his death poorly). I have another cat (Juliet) and I thought I felt her climbing on me.

    "Julie, get off me," I had said or something like that.

    I sat up and realized there was no cat in the room.

    I realize it could have been the pills and my grief, but I swear Sam came to say goodnight one last time.

  2. I love your blog!! As both a native Kentuckian and a fellow thespian, I enjoy reading your stuff!! I loved the link about the Bigfoot sightings... one was very close to where I lived (Dixie Highway/Gene Snyder Freeway, in the Jefferson Forest) right when I moved from Lexington to Louisville.... ::chills::
