“Friday the 13th” by Richard F. Yates

Howdy folks! Considering it’s Friday the 13th, I figured I’d either grab my hockey mask and machete and maybe go for a walk in the woods, or I’d write a little check-in for the Workshop (maybe both???) So…what have you folks been up to?

I’ve been doing a lot of writing, working on editing Sharkey and the Jabberwock, as well as penning a biography/resume for myself (written as Charlie Centipede, my evil alter-ego), and you folks can read this finely crafted piece of fiction if you go to the “Who is Richard F. Yates?” page. (Warning: It’s pretty long.) I also did a fun interview with my Uncle Randy and Grandma Lucille about Randy’s Bigfoot sighting, which I really enjoyed. (I’ll have to do more of those.)

The MAIN thing I’ve been doing lately is looking for a J.O.B.! (Ugh…) For the last two years, I’ve been interning at a print shop, hoping that it would turn into full time employment, but it never did—so now I’m looking at things like pizza delivery or being a clerk at an art supply store… Maybe I’ll see if the community college has any openings for under-qualified teachers! Anyway, economically speaking, I need an income, and apparently WRITING AND ART aren’t going to cut it. (Bummer…) (Remember that Ko-Fi thing? It would be really helpful at this point! Or maybe if you’re looking for a new book to read? Or some fancy new art-encrusted objects??? The Primitive Entertainment Workshop might be able to help!)

Still and all, I’m feelin’ pretty good:

One odd thing, as I was cruising around online (I think I was looking at a StumbleUpon page), I spotted an advert for Redbubble—which had MY design in the advertisement!

Now I’m assuming that it had something to do with COOKIES or some other techno-voodoo, trying to sell me an image that I looked at when I was on Redbubble at some point, but if the techno-code KNEW I was looking at that image, why didn’t it know that it was MY image? Seems weird to try to sell me my own design… I might just be naïve about all this, but it does seem odd to me.

And that’s about all I’ve got at the moment. I’m HOPING to get some new postcards up in the Postcards from Paradise page sometime this weekend and keep working on new art and writing. I’ve also got to spend some time looking for gainful employment (I have a few applications / irons in the fire), so I’m not sure if I’ll be quite as prolific as usual, but I’ll try not to let me personal life interfere with my art…. HA! HA! HA! (Good joke, eh!? Art and writing are entirely personal, right?!?! Am I right!?!?) Alright, get lost!

“Interview with Randy Long and Lucille Davis, 11 July 2018” by Richard F. Yates

[I stopped by the house of Randy Long (my uncle) and Lucille Davis (my grandma) yesterday for a visit, and Randy started telling me about his Bigfoot sighting. I stopped him and pulled out my phone to record a quick interview… —RFY]

Richard F. Yates – “Alright, we are in Longview, Washington, talking to Randy Long about his Bigfoot sighting. About what year are you thinkin’? Seventies?”

Randy Long – “No. This was early nineties or late…yeah, early nineties.”

RFY – “So early nineties. Bigfoot sighting…and you were where?”

RL – “Crater Lake area.”

RFY – “Crater Lake, Oregon,”

RL – “Yeah.”

RFY – “Okay, so go ahead and set the stage. You were telling me it was somewhere getting’ close to afternoon/evening…”

RL – “And I was driving. I come around this corner, and a flash goes across in front of me. It looked like it could have been a bear or something, but it was standing upright, swinging its arms back and forth, crossing the road in a big hurry. It could have been a Bigfoot…I couldn’t swear to it.”

RFY – “And you have a particular opinion about this, Grandma Lucy?”

Lucille Davis – [Noise of surprise…]

RFY – [Laughter]

Lucille – “I don’t know. I wasn’t there.”

RFY – “[To Lucille] Yeah, you weren’t there… [To Randy] But you did have a witness, you said, but…”

RL – “But they were looking at the floor, and when I told them to look, by the time they looked it was already gone.”

RFY – “Now you say you didn’t think it was a bear because it had certain characteristics…”

RL – “It had characteristics of a man, but hair all over it, and it was moving its arms back and forth and not up in the air like a bear would.”

RFY – “Right. Now, just seconds, you’re talkin’?”

RL – “Seconds.”

RFY – “You were saying, you were driving on the road…”

RL – “Driving around a corner out in the middle of nowhere, near Crater Lake. A dry area. It was late afternoon, and this goes across in front of me. Startled me. I actually stopped and pulled over, got out and looked, and there was nothing to be seen by that time.”

RFY – “Wow! You weren’t scared or anything like that?”

RL – “No. It didn’t come to ‘get me’ or anything. It was just going across the road.”

RFY – “[Laughter] Right. So what… Did you have weird feelings? You know. Because I’m reading a book right now about a guy who thinks they’re psychic. You didn’t have any psychic fear or anything weird like that?”

RL – “No, and they didn’t try to teleport my ass or nothin’.”

RFY – “[Laughter.] Is that your only Bigfoot sighting, as far as you remember?”

RL – “That I care to talk about at the moment.”

RFY – “Yeah. The only one you actually saw-saw?”

RL – “Yes.”

RFY – “Alright, and you said…”

LD – “And what makes you think there is any Bigfoot?”

RL – “There’s too many sightings…sightings from Indians and things like that down through the years to not believe it, not to mention there’s too many U.F.O. sightings. I think it’s all intertwined.”

RFY – “Intertwined?”

LD – “If there is a Bigfoot, how come nobody ever sees them in the woods?”

RL – “What did I just say? I said U.F.O.s / Bigfoots.”

LD – “Oh, okay…”

RFY – “Yeah?”

RL – “U.F.O.s ARE the Bigfoot.”

RFY – “U.F.O.s are the Bigfoot?”

LD – “Huhn’t uh…”

RFY – [Laughter]

RL – “Who’s to say?

RFY – “Alright, so that’s a rap. Any other thoughts on this one?”

RL – “Not now. No.”

RFY – “Not now? [To Lucille] How about you? Any other thoughts on this one?”

LD – “No! I’ll pass on that! [Laughter]”

RFY – “Alright! Thanks for playing!”


And that’s where the interview ends. Now, as I’ve mentioned previously, I’m not a Bigfoot or U.F.O. believer (or EXPERIENCER,) but as Grandma Lucy says, I wasn’t there, so I can’t say Randy was wrong. Both he and my Uncle Tim (who you might remember from a previous post) have seen what they believe was a Bigfoot with their own eyes. They have also seen U.F.O.s, as has Grandma Lucy, who once saw a fleet of (she says about 15 or 20) cigar shaped objects flying in the sky, and she pointed them out to Randy, who also witnessed them. Again, I wasn’t there, and I don’t know what they saw…but I love the stories and find them endlessly fascinating!

I also really enjoyed the interview process. I might try to do more of them! Whether I do or not, KEEP WATCHING THE SKIES (and drive slow on those back-roads! You don’t want to run anyone or anyTHING over!!!
