Have I ever told you.........

That I believe in Bigfoot? Yup, I'm one of the card carrying, certified nutso folks who think there is an unidentified hairy creature out in the woods. I've been fascinated my entire life by this overly large mysterious biped. As a child I had an experience that cemented forever that something is out there. We lived in a trailer next to my grandparents home. Every winter our plumbing would freeze up and we would have to run next door for baths and such. I was about eight yrs old and took my little sister with me to get a Saturday night bath in preparation for church the next morning. My grandparents had gone out for the evening so we didn't feel in any particular hurry to let others use the one and only bathroom for 9 people. I got my sister all clean and was just about finished myself when I looked up at the window. I could see an outline of a large head and shoulders framed in the moonlight. I quickly dried us off got our jammies on and hustled through the house and made those 15 steps to our door like a skittish antelope being chased by a cougar. I told my dad about the man in the window. I don't know what he did after that. But here is why this experience is more than just a peeper incident. That window has to be close to 8ft off the ground outside. No normal man could have just been looking in the window without a ladder and I would have heard that. Besides, the head and shoulders were much too big to be a person.
