In Re: Avoiding Alien Abduction...
First, this is not to poke fun at any one or any theory.
It is a true recollection of real events.
My mother is 86 years old. She lives alone, about 5 minutes from where I live in east-central Alabama.
On the night of 6 August 2009, she called me about 11:30 pm et, to ask me if I knew whether nearby Fort Benning was doing anything special. Now, I am
no longer in the military and have not been for going on three decades. But I do try and stay current as to local events... and that includes those of
a public nature at the installation.
The answer was yes; Fort Benning was in the midst of jumping a class of new paratroopers... they must make a certain number of jumps to get their
paratroop wings. This information was not classified and had been on both TV news and print.
The next morning when I stopped for a personal visit, she told me of a large aircraft that made no noise but was lighted with various colors that
moved slowly over her house the night before.
I immediately thought about some of the Triangle stories but did not tell her that. If she was seeing these things, her reports would be better
untainted by what she might 'think' she was seeing from what I might tell her.
Two nights later, she called me about 11:30 or so and said that a large aircraft - like a helicopter - was hovering over some woods just west and
south of her home. It displayed several bright, white lights but didn't make any noise and was stationary in the sky.
I couldn't resist and grabbed my 6mp Samsung and drove over. But when I got there, what ever it was, was already gone.
I ask her if she wanted me to stay, in sort of a kidding way... in case the 'aliens' might abduct her. She replied that... after losing her first
husband to WW2 and a second to the beer can, there wasn't no little green men that she was going to take a trip with... unless they could offer a
decent meal and had an ounce of manners.
I thought that was a bit of a hoot, coming from her, but in a way, I got the feeling she was serious. It was really a little odd the way it all came
out in words.
Anyway, with that, I went home and slept well knowing that if the aliens ever DID come, they wouldn't dare mess with her. No more sighting since,
have come to my attention.
