One of the most popular posts ever made on this blog was entitled “Baby ‘Squatch” from November, 2009. It featured my field partner (and friend of the ‘squatch), Will Robinson, and his son, Keegan. Keegan was looking extraordinarily dapper in his brand new bigfoot suit made for him by his grandmother for Halloween.
After a year of growth, Keegan now pretty much fits his bigfoot suit perfectly. He loves to parade around in it, pointing at things and making his own version of samurai chatter. I don’t know what could make a father more proud.
As Keegan grows older, I expect great things from him. Will has done the groundwork by playing the Sierra Sounds CD’s to him as he falls asleep at night. We’ll have to wait and see what long-term effect that will have. Since Will does some of the best sasquatch calls I’ve heard a human produce, I imagine Keegan may top his old man some day. There must be something genetic about it, but the CD’s will probably help too.
