“The following is a story my mother and father have told to us several times. This happened in the Summer of 1974 in San Juan, Texas.
My parents were teenagers at the time and my mother was pregnant with my older sister. They lived with my grandparents in a tiny house which was rented from Don Octavio on 1st street. The house was a one bedroom shack, so my parents would sleep on the kitchen floor. One hot summer night, my parents had been arguing before bed, and went to sleep angry at each other.
The entrance door of the house was in the kitchen where they slept and they were accustomed to leaving the main door open with the screen door shut so they could get some kind of breeze through the house. My mother was falling asleep when suddenly a gust of wind blew the screen door wide open! She opened her eyes and tried to get up to shut the screen door, but couldn’t! She couldn’t move or talk, like if she was paralyzed!
The Gillespie Mansion in San Antonio, Texas is better known as the “Midget Mansion” for a reason. The legend is that in the 1920s a very wealthy family moved into town after the father of the two made a fortune appearing in Hollywood movies as a little person. His wife was also a little person but they had two regular sized daughters.
We were having a family/friends get together to celebrate a birthday. During the celebration two of my nephews and a niece came tearing into the house, screaming at the top of their lungs, saying that a plane crashed in one of the adjacent pastures. My brother, myself and about 3 others walked outside to see what was causing all the ruckus.
