I have read a few posts concerning the issue of the 1979 Francs/ 1905 Francs. I wondered about this myself when I first read the story. This is why I
got excited years later seeing it on a Paranormal investigative show. What would the programme makers make of this fact, and others- the clothes, car,
hairstyles and make-up style? All very different at the turn-of-the-century, I should imagine. Would the host even address it? HE DID IN THE
ADDRESSING POINTS/ SUMMING UP part. This is one of the most interesting memories I have of the reconstructive programme, made with the couple, hope it
Couple are stunned at the "19 Francs bill". Pay the sum. Owner and wife take the money BUT they look at it, turn it over, quickly examine it in an
interested but unintrusive manner AND glance toward the two Gendarmes eating at table behind the standing English couple. They then, matter-of-factly,
put in the drawer/ till, and carry on in the moment as if all is right with the world.
Weeks later, when the couple are examining the events, this fact occurs to them, in a "why didin't we think this odd" kind of fashion. The owners
didn't just take the payment...they looked, stroked it, turned it over...glanced to the police...STRANGER STILL- they then JUST POP IT in the till as
if it was any other transaction!!!
The only thing that saddens and perplexes me is: Why has there been no opposing but complimentary stories...i.e. French hotel owners turn-of-century
who have told of the night they met people who, years later they realise must of been from the future- clothes, car, makeup, luggage etc? No French
family, or Bank, possesses 1979 notes that they claim to of obtained decades prior. No stories of the relatives of said Gendarmes, saying that their
Uncle/ Grandad had a situation whereby they gave two English tourists directions at an Inn/ Farmhouse. "You know, now that I think of it, it wasn't
right..their clothes, etc". They were TRAINED POLICEMEN. Even if, at the time of the event, the awareness of the un-naturalness resides with the
"traveller", surely all concerned, upon reflection become aware that "SOMETHING wasn't quite right".
Just a thought.
Peace and God bless.
