I began this blog as a vehicle for reporting on a 47-day trip made by my wife and me in our motorhome down to the Yucatan Peninsula and back. I continued writing about our post-Yucatan travels and gradually began including non-travel related topics. I often rant about things that piss me off, such as gun violence, fracking, healthcare, education, and anything else that pushes my button. I have a photography gallery on my Smugmug site (

Roswell's UFO Museum

Well, I have now been to Roswell’s UFO Museum and Research Center. All I can say is, “Interesting.” I expected there to be “proof” of the 1947 Roswell Incident. There was a lot of “he said, she said” and theories. The museum also had a collection of sworn affidavits from people attesting to what they had heard discussed or had been told about the incident. Not much of "I saw." There were no photographs of anything resembling a UFO or an alien life-form, but there were plenty of drawings from “witnesses.” 

Autopsies were said to have been performed on several nude non-human bodies found near the “crash site,” but there are no autopsy reports to be found. The aliens were said to have four fingers on each hand, without opposable thumbs. Why would such an advanced civilization not have the evolutionary advantage that places us mere humans and apes above all other animals? 

Supposedly, the Army took everything from the “crash site” and to this day nobody knows where they stashed the stuff.  The Army is also said to have threatened to kill anybody (and their entire family) who talked about it. Several “key figures” in the incident reportedly experienced strange deaths after the “incident.”

The museum also included reports of other UFO sightings and alien abductions with a great many “artists’ renditions” and smudged and blurred photographs of the events. By the way, why do all aliens have large heads and big eyes? And why would aliens visit another planet in the nude? If they were smart enough to develop space travel, wouldn’t you expect them to wear some kind of protective gear? Maybe they weren't so smart after all.

That whole Roswell story is a little fishy.
