a tale of tails, tenacity, and tedium, as told by me, usually barefoot and bellowing

Big Foot Sighting...

"The proof is in the pudding" but here the proof was in the sand and the mud.  After two warm days the frozen ground is thawing and takes prints very well.

It was easy to see something had walked through here leaving clear proof of the direction the being was headed. 
Then I found this!
I can't track it.
Which way did it go?
I found this clue...
Human shoes
Someone trying to push winter away by playing bare foot in the mud looking for artifacts.  Looking for ROCKS, can you believe that?  I soon discovered although the temps were in the high fifties, that the mud was cold
and the spring water from the faucet was ice cold, too.
Almost clean enough for inside.
Oh, man, what a beautiful day to play.

Always wanted to meet Big Foot.......proof is in the footprint - you had me fooled there for a minute and I saw the footprints and thought - "she's onto something here. ha,ha. Loved it. We are in blizzard warning and its happening now, so might lose power, might have buncha snow - seems like winter chose to come the end of January instead of the past two months?? Could rain they say too. Hi to all n hugz to M and healing to M lol

If your feet were bigger, you could really trick some Bigfoot hunters.

Lynne said...

You do have some fun with those bare feet, don't you!?

Linda Kay said...

Happy rock hunting! But you might want to keep your shoes on until Spring.

Sandra said...

i have a big grin on my face, smiled all the way through this Tale of the bigfoot sighting, laughed out loud at the last shot of Bigfoot Toes barefoot in the winter... so glad you could get out and feel the soil between your toes. i know how much you love it.

You are brave one, or at least your feet are! I do love to go barefoot in the summer, though.

TexWisGirl said...

such a cute country girl you are!

Sandy said...

Barefeet, boots, or flip flops makes for real fun in the sand, mud, or water.

Arkansas Patti said...

I think that is a case of happy feet. I would if I could but I have puny feet that need orthodics to function. Bummer.

Can't wait to go wading in the water, can you?! IF you do ever see B.F., take a photo? Worth big money.

I love this post. It makes me want to go out and play. By the time Spring is here I should be healed pretty well.
