Snapshots from Roswell, New Mexico

Those of you who have read Joy De Vivre for a bit have probably noticed that I love ghosts, aliens, conspiracy theories and anything that is a mystery. This includes Roswell, New Mexico. Some believe that in 1947 a UFO crashed outside of Roswell and the debris was investigated at the Roswell Army base. Fact or fiction? Who knows, but the town that has capitalized on this event,or nonevent, is a fun place to visit. 
 The UFO Museum has a huge collection of newspaper articles, photos and paraphernalia based on aliens. There are also several exhibits that I featured earlier in my Hipstamatic photos
Being that we were on our way home and weren't staying the night in Roswell I truly appreciated the fact that they allowed Barkley inside the museum. They are very pet friendly and the sweet lady in the gift shop even gave him a plush alien to take home. 

Aliens were plentiful from the light posts, Coke machines, just about every store I had to get into the spirit. 

What are your opinions on aliens? Possibility or fiction made for Hollywood?

I think aliens are possible, but don't have a strong opinion on it really. My husband would love to go there. I should take him.

If he loves aliens he would really enjoy it. It is a cute place to visit. I wish we could have spent more time there.

If the aliens look like the one in that last photo, I hope a lot more of them visit the Earth!
