It was sometime around 1964 and I was five years old. My sister was 8. We were playing in our bedroom when we noticed something moving around our dresser. We looked closer and we saw what looked like a little man about 6 to 8 inches tall. It was wearing what I remember as a court jester type outfit and pointed almost curly-toed shoes.
At first we were frozen with amazement. I don't remember what we said to each other, but I know the creature knew we were talking about it. Before we could move closer to get a better look, it ran behind the dresser. We moved the dresser and looked all around, finding no sign of our small visitor.
To this day, my sister does not want to know any further information on this subject as she is now a fire-and-brimstone religious woman. I, on the other hand, have always wanted to know more about this mystery. I know this really happened and I have suffered to keep this incident low key. I have only told a handful of people in 40 years. I would like to talk to anyone having similar experiences. I have been looking for pictures or illustrations of the visitor without success. Any help on this subject would be greatly appreciated.
