Long story short.
Here in Arkansas, evidently there are people down south seeing Big Foots roaming around.
I know a guy that is into writing the stories down "according to the eyewitnesses".
Well, lastnight he relayed a story of a BF sighting in Pocahontas Arkansas (whatever).
I told him I am going to visit my 93 year old grandmother today who was born and raised in Pocahontas, and lived there for 53 year, I will ask her if she remembers any stories from that time period (1920-1973).
She moved back to Arkansas in the late '90's.
For 93 she is still pretty sharp, and does crossword puzzles, and even drives a block or two to the grocery store occasionally (which I keep preaching, she should not do).
So I got to her house early this morning.
Out of the clear blue, I dropped the Big Foot bomb on her, keep in mind, I have never asked her such a stupid question.
She gives me this look, like I just ate her favorite recliner.
So much so, I had to ask her if she knew what a Big Foot was?
Again, the same dumbfounded look, I LOL'd, but she said...... "well..yeah"!
She remember ZERO stories about Big Foot from growing up in that area (imagine that).
But then, proceeds to tell me a story, about a 5 minute UFO encounter in 1929-1930 with 30-40 other witnesses at a swimming hole, in broad daylight.
A very remarkable story to say the least, which I am dictating now to my hard drive for my memories if nothing else.
I never mentioned UFO's to her, she just started telling me the story, and it was the first time she had ever shared it with me.
Can't say I am a believer in either, but find some of the stories interesting, and this one especially, considering she is the most honest human being I have ever known, and the fact, I would never dispute anything she told me.
I have no reason to, and she has no reason to make it up.
Kinda of a "chilling" story, a lot of people scared, and in disbelief as to what they were actually seeing that day.
I am going to research and see if I cannot find some additional info on it, maybe a news article, ect.
But as an interesting side note, I am sure a lot of those "other witnesses" have shared the same story with their families.
So you ever see a UFO?
Care to share a small description of the event?
