This is when the babushka's sphere of influence spills out on to the streets and she imposes her rules, regulations, opinions and standards on people innocently going about their daily business.
In winter babushkas will tell you off for not wearing a hat or a warm enough coat; in summer they will worry your child might catch a chill in temperatures of more than 35C if any part of the child's body is not covered; and in spring and autumn they worry about the rest.
These babushkas' favourite hunting ground is on benches outside their block of flats or house.

She was one of the few witnesses who was not immediately identified - thus the rather odd nickname which she acquired due to the 'babushka' or triangular headscarf which she was wearing that day.
The question which The Babushka Lady provokes has become much more than just: "Who is she?" It has become much more positive: "Are The Babushka Lady and Beverly Oliver one and the same person?" Undoubtedly, the most important aspect of The Babushka Lady is the fact that she appears to be filming the motorcade.
The controversy over Beverly Oliver's claim to be The Babushka Lady has raged unabated from that day to this - and remains one of the most vehemently debated aspects of the Kennedy assassination mystery.

 Is Beverly Oliver the "Babushka Lady?"
She appears to be filming the motorcade, perhaps with an amateur movie camera, but she did not identify herself to law enforcement on the day of the assassination.
She was a dancer and singer (although apparently not a stripper) at the Colony Club, a strip joint that competed with Jack Ruby's Carousel Club.

Of course, this led to the natural conclusion that she was trying to escape from the limousine, or more charitably, to have been trying to assist Special Agent Clint Hill.
If anyone has even the slightest doubt about the actions being described here, I cannot urge strongly enough, that he or she look at this part of the film repeatedly, and in slow or stopped motion.
Connally's recollection was correct, she heard the first lady shouting "I have his brains in my hand", even before Roy Kellerman told Greer, the driver, to get out of Dealey Plaza, and before the limousine "pulled out of line".

Throughout the 1960s, JFK assassination researchers pored over photographs and motion pictures taken in Dealey Plaza and pondered the identity of a woman standing just south of Elm Street, who appeared to be holding a movie camera and filming the assassination.
Dubbed the "Babushka Lady" for her headgear, the woman's identity was a mystery.
Some who know her insist it is indeed she who is depicted in the numerous photographs and films of the assassination; others claim the Babushka Lady appears to be built differently than Beverly Oliver, as depicted in photographs from that era.

Posner was supposed to rebut two conspiracy theorists, but backed out when he learned that one was dubious witness Beverly Oliver.
In 1970, Oliver came out with the claim that she was the Babushka Lady - so-called for the head scarf she wore - who's seen lurking in footage of JFK's murder.
Neither that claim nor any of her others - that the FBI confiscated film she'd shot in Dealey Plaza, that she was a close friend of Jack Ruby and was thus privy to conversations proving that Lee Harvey Oswald did not act alone - has ever been substantiated.
