UFO MUSEUM, ROSWELL, NEW MEXICO

We visited the International UFO Museum and Research Center in Roswell, New Mexico, a few years ago. It was during the annual 4th of July UFO Festival. The city is geared up for a good time. There are street vendors, concerts, and some people even wear funny costumes.

The museum is a cool place to wander around in. There are displays of actual newspapers from 1947, telling of the UFO crash, investigation, and possible cover-up by the government. You can see set up displays, depicting what happened. There is art, and photo opportunities everywhere in the building. You can even pose in the many scenes, with the aliens, which in this case, are rubber dummys. It’s all in fun, and the kitschy displays are funny. There is a gift shop, also, where you can buy all things UFO and alien related.

They also had invited several authors to the museum for book signings and sales. At another venue, there were many more authors set up, signing their books, and visiting with the people who came by. There were several scheduled speakers in the auditorium.

We didn’t stay for the night-time festivities, but there are bands playing music, street dances, and I’m sure everyone had fun. So, whether you believe in UFOs, aliens, or not, Roswell and the UFO museum and festival, is a wonderful place to spend some time, if you get the chance.

A UFO called Outer Space I drew for the Color Your World challenge awhile back. It’s saucer shaped with a dome with black & gray title in the dome.

Three Things Challenge # 12

Three Things Challenge # 12

https://lightmotifs.wordpress.com/2019/02/25/three-things-challenge-pl12/

Today’s prompt: meatloaf, charger, sunblock

***

I was busy fixing a meatloaf for my supper, when the end of the world happened.

Just as I put the dish into the oven to cook, all the electricity in the house went out. I tried the lights, the TV, and checked the fuse box, but they all looked fine…just wouldn’t work.

Getting a bit worried, I grabbed my cell phone to call my friends. I wanted to know if their power was out, too. When I turned on my phone, though, I saw that I only had one % left in the battery. Crap! I got my charger and plugged it in. Of course I’d forgotten that to charge my phone, I needed electricity.

Now I was without supper and no phone life left. I knew I should have remembered to charge it up, but I was notorious about forgetting it.

I went outside. It was still daylight, as it was only about 5 p.m. The sun was on it’s way down, though. At least I think it was. Something was causing a sunblock. Well, I don’t know if that was what you’d call it, but the sky was funny looking. It wasn’t bright out, but there weren’t any clouds either. My neighbors were all outside, too, looking around. So it wasn’t just me and my house.

What happened next you won’t believe unless you were there. All the civil defense sirens began blowing…so loud! We heard the announcement like a voice from on high, but it was just the speakers attached to the power poles.

We have been invaded by unknown planetary entities …take cover…take cover now!

And so we did.

I ran back into my house, just running around from room to room, not knowing what to do. I’ve always been aware of tornado safety rules, and earthquake survival tips, but what will save me from alien invasion? Nothing! I’m doomed!

Finally, I grabbed my purse, because that’s what you do in an emergency, of course, and crawled under my bed. Maybe if they couldn’t see me, I’d be okay. I stayed there for I don’t know how long, but it seemed like hours. Eventually another announcement came over the speakers that all was clear. The electricity came back on and the TV news was giving explanations about the incident.

It seems the alien spacecraft that had blocked our sunshine, and depleted our electricity were not invading at all. They were friendly, but were just making a pit stop to charge up their own vehicle space ship while on their way to another planet.

Whew! Everyone was fine, but I really think they could have given us a little warning that they were stopping by for a short visit. Don’t you?

Ride Captain Ride – Song Lyric Sunday – Water

Ride Captain Ride – Song Lyric Sunday – Water

https://jimadamsauthordotcom.wordpress.com/2019/02/02/water-cohesion/

***

For today’s SLS, the word prompt suggestion is water. We can find songs having to do with any type of water, be it oceans, lakes, rivers, bays, etc.

Thanks for hosting this fun musical challenge, Jim!

This is a song that I’ve always liked, because it brings back memories of an all night long, nonsensical drive around town with friends.

Here’s what is interesting/strange about the lyrics, to me, now that I’ve read them.

  • Why 73 men? What’s the significance of that number?
  • A storm was blowing, yet the sea was peaceful?
  • The ship was a mystery ship, come from nowhere, and then disappeared. Were they aliens from another planet trying to lure people to their ‘mystery ship’, and ‘another world’?

“Ride Captain Ride”, by Blues Image, was released from their album, “Open”, in 1970. It was written by Mike Pinera and Frank Konte, and is on the Atco/Atlantic label.

Ride Captain Ride

{Intro}

Seventy-three men sailed up from the San Francisco Bay
Rolled off of their ship, and here’s what they had to say
“We’re callin’ everyone to ride along to another shore
We can laugh our lives away and be free once more”

But no one heard them callin’, no one came at all
Cause they were too busy watchin’ those old raindrops fall
As a storm was blowin’ out on the peaceful sea
Seventy-three men sailed off to history

Ride, captain ride upon your mystery ship
Be amazed at the friends you have here on your trip

Ride captain ride upon your mystery ship
On your way to a world that others might have missed

{Bridge}

Seventy-three men sailed up from the San Francisco Bay
Rolled off of their ship, and here’s what they had to say
“We’re callin’ everyone to ride along to another shore
We can laugh our lives away and be free once more”

But no one heard them callin’, no one came at all
Cause they were too busy watchin’ those old raindrops fall
As a storm was blowin’ out on the peaceful sea
Seventy-three men sailed off to history

List things or events that changed your life?

I’d say getting married, and having kids and grand-kids. Also, having had the opportunity to travel and live in other countries, has shown me that there are really wonderful people all over the world.

Complete this sentence: Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No it’s…

A UFO!

What genre of music do you like?

I like all music. I could name every kind there is, and I could find something to like about them, even if it’s just one song or two. That said, I listen to Rock most of all.

ENLARGED

Farmers were wise to never again allow their cows out to this lush, green pasture.

Only the jack rabbits were in danger.

Releasing the last batch of bunnies into the woods, the UFO beamed up a new crop to enlarge.

**Note… do you see the large rabbit shape back in the trees?

CAUTION! WEIRD POST AHEAD!

CAUTION! WEIRD POST AHEAD!

On  a hot summer night, I was up in the stands at a race-car event. The track was huge, and cars were zip, zip, zipping past, sounding like mosquitoes. I watched them for awhile, but also kept looking up at the dark sky, like I do all the time, looking at the stars. As usual, I kept hoping a UFO would show itself.

Suddenly, I did see movement in amongst the stars, and it seemed to be getting closer. It was just a bright, little light, but was moving very fast toward us, here at the race. It got closer, still, until it was right above the track, and it began circling around, just like the fast race-cars. It was an even faster blur. It seemed to be a small jet plane, like an Air Force jet. How it could zoom around so super fast, I don’t know. Everyone watching from the stands were amazed.

After a couple of turns around the track, it took off, back into the dark sky. We watched until it was just a small, bright speck of light, again. However, just before we lost sight of it, we saw a giant explosion up in the sky, shooting orange flames, miles high.
