One man disk UFO paralyzing me in Houston Texas on Telephone Rd in the summer of 1968 500 Lights On Object0: Yes

I was only about 5 years old. It was the summer of 1968 in the middle of the day, bright sunshine and very hot and humid as Houston is known to be, we lived on Telephone Rd. I remember waking up in my bed and thinking “why am I taking a nap?” I get up and go to my parents’ room, they are both asleep on the bed, sun is coming in through the windows, and I can not wake them up. I go out the front door and proceed down the driveway, it is deathly quiet, no birds, no cars, no planes, nothing is moving anywhere. As I get almost to the end of our driveway I hear an unusual humming noise. I see a disk shaped object floating over the roof of our neighbors house, it is, I would approximate, 6 feet in diameter and is big enough for 1 occupant, it has a glass dome and is a brushed silver color. There is a humanoid in the UFO; he appears to be driving it with a “joy stick”. He is a dark greenish gray color and I remember thinking "was that his skin or a body suit?", he also has on goggle type glasses very round and thick. I am frozen at the end of our driveway, terrified. He does not see me at first. He progresses over the neighbors’ yard and crosses our street. Suddenly “he” jerks his head around to the left and looks directly at me. I become paralyzed and fall off the driveway into the little ditch that boarders the road. I can still see but cannot move. The next thing I remember is waking back up in my bed. The little TV in my room is on and has only “snow” on the screen. I scream “they are in the TV, they are in the TV!” I grab the electric cord to the television and pull it out of the socket and keep pulling until the TV falls off the dresser and breaks, much to my relief. This wakes my father from his “Sleep” and he comes in and spanks me for breaking the TV.
