Forward to Fresno

The January 1961 issue of FATE magazine shared the TWIDDER account of a teen and her aunt.  They were but two of over two dozen observers of a frightened, confused, little old lady who, I believe, was in the midst of a Forward to the Future spacetime slip.

One hot summer day in 1936 seventeen-year-old Carmen Chaney and her aunt Frankie ran out into the street in Fresno, California, to help an old woman who seemed to be ill, who was walking as if her legs were not functioning properly.

But the elderly woman reacted with panic, and she began to move away from the solicitous women as quickly as she could hobble.old-woman-vs-grafitti1

The white-haired, tiny old lady wore a large black hat, high-necked, long-sleeved dress and high-button shoes of a decade gone by.

Within a few moments several neighbors on the block were observing the strange drama. The old woman hobbled into an alley, then looked around in helpless frustration and confusion as she realized that more than 30 people, a veritable crowd, had gathered to observe her actions.

She stopped for a brief moment, then she vanished! Disappeared in the blink of an eyelash!”
