Comment by Kathrine: I absolutely love this story!! I have seen some spirits in my life and they were all in Hanford, CA. I would love to know the exact location on Courtner because I think I have an idea which house you are referring to....

Our dad brought this old house from in town somewhere. He moved it and planted it right in the middle of his twelve-acre land out on 7th Avenue. The house was very old, but dad (being the talented person that he was) had the house livable in no time. The first time I slept in the house it was odd. I was accustomed to sleeping in the same room with my brothers and my mom and dad being just through the doorway (no doors on the rooms in the little house. ) It was too quiet and too separate. Then I heard footsteps running up the stairs, and the door closed. I thought everyone was in bed. I waited to hear one of the other bedroom doors to open and close, but they did not.
The next day I got home from school, and both my brothers were outside. I heard footsteps run up the stairs and open the door at the top of the stairs. I looked up there - no brothers. When my mom got home I told her about it, and she just looked at me knowing I was scared. She said ''oh do not worry. That's just Ernie. '' ''Who's Ernie? Mom!'' I thought she was really good at thinking on her feet. Then she said as calmly and believably as possible ''oh that's just the little guy that guards the house when we aren't here. He's just a little guy that likes to run up and down the stairs and take care of things. He used to live in the house before he died. '' That was forty-five years ago. The last time I had visited my mom before she passed away Ernie was still running up and down the stairs taking care of things now that we are not there.
