A - Z On Monday ~ The Letter B
B is for Bigfoot (aka Sasquatch, Abominable Snowman or Yeti) with Pat & me on Capital Hill in Seattle,WA. in Dec. 2007. In 1957 my Aunt Dot and Uncle Jim took me to the movie theatre to see a movie called The Abominable Snowman. They lived right across the street from us, so they came over to our apartment (we lived over our hardware store) to pick me up, and we walked the block and a half to the theatre. I remember it was winter and there was snow on the sidewalk and also I remember them swinging me between them by the arms. They always made me feel so special. Anyway, I was around 7 years old and going to see this movie was a great treat. As we left the theatre I remember stopping & staring at the movie poster behind the glass case on the outside of the building. Aunt Dot and Unc continued walking on as I stared at the poster. I then put my face really close to the glass to stare into the eyes of the Bigfoot and it scared the bejeepers out of me. They had turned the corner at the Ben Franklin store & were out of sight & I ran as fast as I could to catch up with them! It's weird how I can totally remember the experience and the how scared I was and how happy to be holding their hands once again. Here's a youtube preview of the movie I saw as a kid:
