Bill Bixby as “Mr. Eddie’s Father”

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Courtship_of_Eddie’s_Father

Eddie wants a new mother. To that end, he cleverly manipulates his father’s relationships with women, sometimes even trying to set his father up to fall for women Eddie knows and likes first.

Bigfoot Thoughts

Then of course there are the Mossmen…

3031946-mossman0_full

… and Mmmmmmm’s, the original toy avatars I suppose you could call them. Both first appeared in the Jonesborough Toy Happening of 2008, the base event for the whole toy avatar phenomenon.

—–

Hucka D.:

The Mmmmmmm’s came from Mythos, specifically Edwardston. You’ve figured that out, haven’t you?

bb:

Maybe. So it’s backwards from what Grassy wanted to do: fly the First Goodmobile (Firstmobile) to Edwardston and Mythos. The [Firstmobile] actually *comes* from Edwardston. Makes sense.

Hucka D.:

Sense it makes. They are the last living toy avatars in Mythos, after everyone else is gone, let’s say. But maybe they really come from Whitehead Crossing and its own Edwardston and Green Turtle and such. It remains a maze[ of meaning].

bb:

I haven’t figured out exactly what Whitehead Crossing is. I’ve been so focused on Blue Mountain and Bigfoot and Rediscovery this summer and, so far, fall.

Hucka D.:

It will all even out.

So Hucka D. had to buzz off to unknown destinations. Mentioned something about Burger King at Point-0, actually. Back to explaining Mossmen. So the purchasing of the first mossman, or the only mossman I still have, follows the pattern of other toy avatars such as Billy J. Thornberry (Billy Bob or B. Thornberry now?), because it cost me a dollar or less. The purchase took place about 25 years back at a Big Lots in this case, and I recall there was a whole wall of mossmen for sale. Shame I didn’t buy more at the time. Thus the source of the expression “there’s a big lot of ’em” sometimes spoken in my blogs concerning the creatures.

claycounty01

Hucka D. is morse coding me from Burger King now. We have more information on the actor who’s slowly but surely becoming as much a star as mmmmmm Grassy Noll and mossman Gene Fade before him. Toy avatar thespian Billy *Bob* Thornberry hails from Henrietta, Texas, with a brother or father named Charlie who runs — hold on — a company called Zigzag, which is a, um, buyer of peanuts? No: pumpkins. Pumpkins or peanuts — maybe pumpkin seeds. Hucka D. remains unsure.*

5-truly-last-minute-halloween-costumes.w654

And a brother or son named Dean who sometimes dresses up as Jolly old St. Nick on Labor Day and as a, er, turkey — *not* a pumpkin, Hucka D. is reinforcing — on Halloween. Interesting.

dec20bean4

Located further away are cousins Joy, Shannon, and Jimbob, with the latter some kind of softball oddball twin to Billy Bob and who once played 4th base for the Montreal Penguins womens’ oddball softball team. I think that means he was the catcher.

Then there was mother/sister/daughter Henrietta whose story will have to wait. End transmission.

thornberry07
Jimbob caught pretending to be second cousin Dean robbing the Thornberry’s house on Labor Day.

* In checking the region of Charlie, Texas, there is a large *pecan* farm (and Wicked Andy’s Insane Acres Haunted House!). Maybe that’s what Hucka D. was trying to interpret.

Bigfoot 01

100 Foot Swamp:

bmul010

8/31/15:

100 Foot Swamp has been renamed Bigfoot Swamp, a natural transition (it has a “big” feet of length). The projected town or “toy happening” around it becomes Bigfoot then, most likely, with a center near the northern part of the marsh, where a feeder stream enters it via an uphill pipe.

The only US population place named Bigfoot presently is in Frio County, Texas. The general area of this village has already been seen in a map displayed on this blog from May 2014 called “Strange 01″…

https://bakerbloch.wordpress.com/2014/05/15/strange-01/

There I discuss the conjunction of two towns in Medina County to the immediate north of Frio, or Noonan and Devine. Glenn Strange plays the bartendeer Sam Noonan in the long running western seris Gunsmoke featuring James Arness and sheriff Matt Dillon, an icon for our time. The town Noonan in Texas is one of only 2 in our US of A, the other being in Divide County ND and near a *Strange* Siding. Noonan and Strange conjoined again. Near Noonan Texas is a city called Devine. There are only two pop. places of that name as well, with the other being in Colorado near a Vineland, and itself having a variant name of Vineland according to the GNIS database.

Notice several things here in addition to the stuff I outline in the “Strange 01” post: Divide (County, ND) is almost an anagram of Devine. I now work with a guy named Devine, who is sort of my boss as I perceive him. He cryptically emailed me several times on the weekend I discovered the Bigfoot Swamp. Now I find the only US Bigfoot conjoined with the only incorporated US Devine, and the only one of any significance. Bigfoot Swamp, a natural area bordering the Blue Mountain Urban Landscape and what could be considered a direct extension of it (that’s how I view it anyway), can stand for the event *furthest* away from this Urban Landscape in the Blue Mountain area, or the encounter with a Bigfoot like creature in the furthest recesses of Frank and Herman Park the winter of 2012/2013. This is an encounter with a completely *alien* culture, seemingly, and as far away from humanity as you can get. It is non-human. It creates not stuff we humans consider normal, like roads and houses and malls and hospitals and HugeMarts. So the near Bigfoot (Alpha) overlaps the far Bigfoot (Omega), and perhaps in ways I cannot understand yet (involving Devine?).

On the below map we see the close conjunction of Noonan, Devine and Bigfoot in Texas, with the word Devine strangely absent on the map despite being a town of significant size. Represents the soon absence of the other Devine? Maybe. If so, what name will take its place? Is that written out in maps as well?

map happenings 02

cub: 1 of 1:

As a tigress whose cub had been threatened would she appear, coming out of the shadows, stealing noiselessly along and holding the long wicked scissors in her hand.

Winesap-Cub Run (Kessinger), KY. Centerpoint? Hucka D.?

To complete the pseudo-triangle: Scissors-Run, TX. “Don’t run with scissors.”

scissors01

And to remind, only other “scissors” is in same Winesap story, helping to identify the 1st three stories of the book as rock, paper, scissors (Story Room?). Rock in Kansas next to Wilmot and in Cowley County obviously is the 1st story now, as Wilmot identifies a character in the last story and Cowley identifies the writer of an important introduction to the book (introduction between last and first stories, if end is seen as looping back into beginning in an urobouros situation). Udall next to Rock and Wilmot also seems important. Identifies, for one thing, the *whole of America*, and perhaps represents the *whole of Winesap* (end to beginning) in same function. Clever huh? We know Winfield from the same county, which is the seat, is another way of saying “Winesap”. Win(n)field-Atlanta is something we haven’t brought up yet in this blog. Hope Hucka D. doesn’t stop me here.

We also know Udall is a False Winner.

GNIRPS has considerable more stuff on Cubs. Chicago Cubs specifically. Town rival (south to north) Chicago White Sox (from White Stockings) has recently been angled into our story from an unrelated direction. Chicago is our Second City. Cubs even use to be called White Stockings for a short time in the 1800s.

5 mentions of Chicago in Winesap. 2 in the 4th story concerning Doc Parcival (this would be just beyond the 3rd with the only mention of “cub”), 2 in the 8th story concerning Alice Hindman, and then the last one comes from the last story concerning Willard himself and his Departure from Winesap. Here they are in story order, then:

He came from Chicago and when he arrived was drunk and got into a fight with Albert Longworth, the baggageman.

In Chicago there was a Doctor Cronin who was murdered.

The young newspaper man did not succeed in getting a place on a Cleveland paper and went west to Chicago.

In Chicago he boarded at a house where there were several women.

His train runs from Cleveland to where it connects with a great trunk line railroad with terminals in Chicago and New York.

There’s 1 US Cronin, and in one of the 5 Anderson Counties.

cronin01

Tiny Cronin is near something called the Anderson-Faulkenberry slayings site on this map.

Anderson-County

Word Faulkner is included in Faulkenberry. W. Faulkner could be said to slay S. Anderson in an Oedipal way (son kills/usurps father). Just saying.

http://www.forttours.com/pages/andersonfaulk.asp

On January 28, 1837, six rangers, eighteen-year-old Abram Anglin, David Faulkenberry, Evan Faulkenberry, Benjamin W. Douthit, James Hunter, and Columbus Anderson, had left the fort to search for strayed hogs in the Trinity River bottom. Finding some of them, Hunter and Douthit were sent back to Fort Houston to fetch a canoe.

In their absence, the other four were attacked by a band of Indians on the Trinity River at a point known as Bonner’s Ferry. Anderson was mortally wounded, although he managed to swim the river and crawl two miles before dying. David Faulkenberry, severely wounded, also swam the river and crawled about two- hundred yards away before succumbing to his wounds. The Indians later claimed that David’s son, Evan Faulkenberry, fought like a wild man, killing two Indians and wounding a third. Severely wounded and already scalped, he was said to have jerked from his captives’ grasp and swum halfway across the Trinity before dying. The fourth man, Abram Anglin, although hit by a bullet in the thigh, managed to swim the river and escape on horseback with James Hunter, one of the two men who had returned from Fort Houston in time to witness the Indian attack.

The 3 that died were Columbus Anderson, David Faulkenberry, and his son Evan Faulkenberry. All swam the river or attempted to, leaving Anderson County and entering the next county west in doing so or attempting to do so. Anderson swam the river and died 2 miles beyond. Faulkenberry the father swam the river and died 200 yards beyond. Faulkenberry the son swam about halfway into the river and died before making it to the opposite shore. The 4th man involved (Abram Anglin) swam the river and managed to escape.

Btw, Anderson County is not named for Columbus but for a guy named Kenneth Anderson, former v.p. of the Republic of Texas, a service then in the future for the Anderson-Faulkenberry victims.

What if this is more than it appears on the surface, somehow tied to the future Anderson-Faulkner relationship? Anglin — angling? (fishing?).

Speaking of which, let’s return to Winesap and “fish” again. Only 2 “fisher”s, but 5 “fish”. 1 of these fish stands alone (“fish”), and is in the same sentence as 1 of the 2 Winesap fishers or fishermen, let’s say. That one was caught but then let go back into the stream or brook from which it came. 2 of the “fish” are part of “fisher”s (obviously). The remaining 2 “fish” (that got away or weren’t caught?) are in the last story again, which also contains the last of 5 “Chicago”s. I’ve cited them before but here they are once more. They both make part of the word “fishing”.

In the fall and spring he spends his Sundays fishing in Lake Erie.

In the smoking car there was a man who had just invited Tom to go on a fishing trip to Sandusky Bay.

Recreational escape (different type of Departure) to Lake Erie in the direction of Sandusky Bay may be implied. Where could this take us?

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mouse_Island_%28Ohio%29

Lake_Erie_Islands_Map

What could we be fishing for, ultimately?

And guess what? One of only 2 Longworth pplaces is in Fisher County, Texas (other is in remote area of Minnesota). That’s the other proper name mentioned in Winesap sentences containing Chicago. And that’s the only US Fisher County. Peculiar still?

more map stuff 02

“Back to Wick/ or Wicke/.”

Hucka D.:

Absolutely.

bb:

Two examples in the magic book. Here’s the sentences now for the reader or readers that I promised before.

Hucka D.:

Certainly.

—–

http://www.gutenberg.org/cache/epub/416/pg416.txt

As a tigress whose cub had been
threatened would she appear, coming out of the shadows,
stealing noiselessly along and holding the long wicked
scissors in her hand.

Also he had a long
yellow mustache that dropped down over his teeth, and
always carried a heavy, wicked-looking walking stick in
his hand.

“Try it youself at home.”

Hucka D.:

Might as well give them the other one.

bb:

Stand back.

With a kind of wriggle, like a fish
returned to the brook by the fisherman, Biddlebaum the
silent began to talk, striving to put into words the
ideas that had been accumulated by his mind during long
years of silence.

Then he said that she was
a wind, a strong terrible wind, coming out of the
darkness of a stormy sea and that he was a boat left on
the shore of the sea by a fisherman.

Hucka D.:

*There*. That wasn’t so hard (!).

bb:

No.

Hucka D.:

And now the other one or two of your readers will know the magic book and the top part of its secrets. They’re even with you — us — now. Return to Sam Parr State Park Lake.

bb:

Okay, in a minute. And just following up on the above, see that scissors is another one of of those two-fers.

Going to a cloth bag that hung on a
nail by the wall she took out a long pair of sewing
scissors and held them in her hand like a dagger.

As a tigress whose cub had been
threatened would she appear, coming out of the shadows,
stealing noiselessly along and holding the long wicked
scissors in her hand.

Hucka D.:

We’ve seen her name before. Can you check for me? We’ll put the lake to one side for now… progressing…

bb:

Could be connected to Elizabeth next to Norfolk Lake in Ark. and its Hand. Elizabeth holds the [sewing] scissors in her hand, like a dagger. long wicked scissors.

Hucka D.:

Not the one I was thinking about, though.

bb:

No.

Hucka D.:

But it is near Heart[ Arkansas] as well.

bb:

Yes.

—–

bb:

Well, not finding it.

—–

scissors01

“Don’t [put] Run with Scissors, I suppose. I remember that before through Donna.”

Hucka D.:

A Candidate could run with scissors and have no fear.

bb: (checking)

Only Run, Hucka D.

—-

No Paper, Hucka D., per se. Lots of Rocks, including one in Cowley County, Kansas near Winfield. But we do have the story Paper Pills within.

bb:

Mother, the third, contains the 2 scissors I see. She doesn’t run with them. 2nd story [] is about paper. First story must be about Rock, then.

Hucka D.:

You better end.

bb:

Thanks.
