THE ABOMINABLE SNOWMAN

I, like many many kids used to watch Rudolph around Christmastime. In fact they still do, me included. In the days when I was young it was only shown one time before the holidays. My brothers and I waited with bated breath to see it.

Apparently I must have thought the entire thing was really true because some time after watching it I started having a recurring dream about the Abominable Snowman. In the dream myself and many of the neighborhood kids would be running and playing in our woods, the very woods that housed my LuckyPony. All of a sudden he was there, the dreaded Abominable Snowman but the weird thing was that he didn't want any of the other kids, he only wanted me. I would run and run and was never caught by him. I guess that has some deep meaning about me as a kid and such but I surely don't know what it could have meant. I just know that I had it many times as a kid and it was the exact same dream. Thank goodness I have long since outgrown the dream. But I must admit it did disturb me as a small child.

Who else has had weird dreams? Let me hear from you.

I have been visiting the same house in my dreams since I was in 5th grade. I know what's in every dresser drawer, every closet and exactly the way the back porch has a step down. But the bathroom is always different and always scary. Sometimes there is a pool in the backyard, sometimes a huge city. I'm 52 years old and still going to that house a few times a year in my dreams. I've never seen it in real life.

I am so glad that Snowman never got you! Or the snakes under your bed that were angered by your red nightgown.

I used to have a recurring dream that there were black panthers all along Contest Road, Dad and Mike and I would be making our way home. And when we got there you had been mauled by one and had two black eyes, sitting in your stroller. I don't have that dream any more.

I used to dream that I was being chased by two Afgan Hounds.

What do you use to bait your breath? Crickets or bloodworms?
