    I am fine. Since my husband died, the home upkeep has been keeping me busy. Learning new skills, that’s for sure!

    I have a picture to post later.

    I noticed my episode index has gotten all messed up somehow. UH.

    Thank you for asking. I lurk sometimes but all the political stuff gives me agita.

    That is mighty young to pass away like that. She was a very kind and sweet person who went through a lot but stayed perky and optimistic in spite of it.

    May God have mercy and comfort her family and friends.

    It does look like Homer. Hmmm.

    Taken at night.

    Out of focus, too close to camera, movement blurring it, too.

    There seems to be a great deal of ritual evil stuff. It’s frighteningly common and closer than you’d ever imagine. I don’t understand choosing evil.

    I am old enough to know from`motorcycle clubs … from the Wild Bunch to Sons of Anarchy… I was shocked that neither of my adult children knew or guessed that Pagans was an MC.

    I cannot explain why some of they behave so badly. It scary as hell.

    I had rocks thrown at me two times, neither struck me, and both seemed to indicate I had gotten too close.

    I think a lot of folks have the idea that “they” were here first, they are rare, endangered creatures, kindly and shy. Well, not so much IMO.

    A lot of the animalistic behavior of sasquatches may stem from our lack of a common language to communicate with. They can’t say “Hey back off.” So they thrash the bushes, screech, throw things, bluff charge, stomp, stink, turn chickens inside out, etc.

    They are people but not our sort. An uncontacted tribe. There are MANY of them all over the place. Have they been here for longer than any humans? Who cares. If we could talk to them, it would be so different.

    I think somebody should give Native American sign language a shot–that is how different tribes communicated over the language barrier. Its like ASL.

    A stick, log, or rock toss that misses warns. If they do hit you with an thrown object, THAT seems intentional harm.

    HEY, there are a couple of incidents you listed that are new to me, no. 3 and the last two. Got any more info on those?

    Holy crow.

    My husband didn’t tell me a lot of things about his health. I didn’t figure things out until after he died. Did I feel relieved of a burden?? Hell no. I felt confused, guilty, left out, lonely, and mistrusted. It made his loss even worse.

    Dealing with finances, etc., was much harder. There were choices we should have made together that I had had to make alone. It just breaks my heart to think about him suffering alone for so long and me just toodling along oblivious. Oh my lord. Don’t be a ____.

    Chris, you have been very important in forming the forum. If this is real and not some kind of joke by some idjit, I am so so sorry to hear your news. I will pray for your health and healing.

    But general bitching aside, there are a boatload of forums online, all kinds of sites, where politics and such can be discussed. Why people have to talk about that stuff here, I don’t know. I think those discussions should go to reddit or whatever and leave this forum for talking sasquatch and other mysterious critters.

    It’s kind of ironic that a discussion about off topic ideas lead to a discussion of on-topic ideas.

    One reason I stopped coming to the Forum very often is the long and repetitive threads on political ideas, etc. Trump, vaccines, blah blah. The threads are sometimes irritatingly aggressive in tone. The exchanges go around and round, boringly repeating the same pretentious remarks. The authors seem not very well informed, and the threads are a rich source of blather. Maybe get a hobby so as to waste time without burdening a public forum.

    Religion is something I enjoy discussing in the context of bigfoot and other cryptids. I can see how others might find that tedious. I think it’s okay to discuss spirituality but only re: sasquatches because it’s pertinent, IMO. We might be careful not to do that real often or at length. And no preaching.

    I also feel my ideas get shot down when barely launched and not all that politely, making me feel less welcome.

    I would like to be able to discuss different cryptids.

    I think they do have a soul, but probably same make, different model.

    I heard that show and thought the fellow’s stories lacked a certain . . . verisimilitude. IE I kind of thought he was fantasizing some. He rambled enough that he began to sound incoherent. He said they were trying to kill him with trucks or something. Lego trucks. That they told him he was different inside from other people. It just doesn’t seem completely real to me.

    It’s true that there are a lot of parallels between demons and aliens, and between demons and bigfoot. One he left out is that superstank that bigfoot have/use.

    Sometimes the whole cryptid/ufo thing just drives people completely around the bend. Mark Barton’s story seems so crazy, although I kind of believe him anyway.

    Your problem sounds like a narcissist/borderline/somekindapsycho sort of thing. It’s not the Catholic Church, it’s the Catholic. Hey! I have at least two of my seven sibs who roll that way. When my mom was dying, Sister J screamed–SCREEEAAMED–at sister M and had M removed by security which they did for no reason other than to shut J up. Lordy. What the heck? Me, I avoid conflict.

    COVID obviated most of our funeral/wake/visiting potential dumpster fires. My husband wanted no fuss and he got none. Everyone who knew him expected nothing else, so that was okay.

    I probably would have been pretty upset to hear he might up and die and also didn’t want a transplant. Which is probably the deal. I know it. I knew better than to be pushy or fuss over him. Gosh, he didn’t even want me to buy him a tee shirt. I do wish he’d left financial information and maybe a letter for us.

    In my own family, the philosophy was ignore it and it will go away. Unless it doesn’t, and then we go to the ER.

    I am going to repeat the last part of my probably-too-long post above because I think it’s important and no one commented and maybe no one read it….

    “Clint kept his own counsel on his health, and he was sicker than I knew. It’s a boy thing, I guess. I wish he’d told me more, sparing me the shock and guilt instead of the details, and sparing himself a lot of pain.

    If you gentlemen will bear with me, I’d like to ask you to please make sure your loved ones are fully aware of your health situations. Don’t be proud, or brave, or independent, just share good or bad news.
