|The Dinner Guest...
Our family has always been able to hear or see things from
the past, great distances or another's desires. I.e. homesickness, illness,
When I was a child my parents, six brothers and sisters
lived in an apartment in east Chicago Indiana. The apartment still stands.
The apartment was probably the ugliest and most haunted place I ever lived
in. of the many incidents that occurred there one stands out in my mind more
This is a rear second floor, three-bedroom apartment.
in December of 1968 or 69 we were about to sit down to
dinner. it had just started snowing outside. as children we were in the
habit of counting the stairs whenever someone came to visit. when we heard

the curtains, he leaned forward and knocked on the window. My father
believing this to be one of my older brothers friends instructed my brother
Alex to see who was knocking at the window. Alex opened the door, looked to
his right and paled then responded; dad there's no one on the porch. we all
thought he was kidding. we could clearly see the person knocking on the
glass. my father by then irritated went to the door. he told us, no one is
on the porch and there are no footprints in the snow! the guest was still
knocking on the
window! my mother a devout catholic frightened believed the silhouette to be
the devil began to pray. the rest of us kids just sat there staring. we
were too frightened to move! dad slammed the door and ushered us into the
living room where we stayed for the remainder of the evening. the figure
continued to knock on the window for several minutes and then just stopped.
again my dad and brothers looked outside. there were
no footprints in the freshly fallen snow! The place was repeatedly blessed by
our priest but the guest returned over the years, always in the winter, always
in the night.
