My new look!

Rachel and the Alien

John and the Alien (where is his hand?)


Long drive across the desert from Scottsdale to Roswell. It was 108 degrees when we left Arizona. We stopped at a cool roadside attraction called The Thing? There were billboards for about thirty miles advertising The Thing, What Is It? We fell for it and paid the $1.75 ($1 for me .75 for Rachel) and saw what it was. Before you saw the Thing you walked through some really weird (and hot) interconnected warehouses with bizarre antiques like Hitler's Rolls Royce. We expected a guy with a chainsaw to jump out at any minute. The rest of the drive was uneventful. We finished the Subtle Knife and started the third book - The Amber Spyglass. Its getting really good.

Roswell it self was a little bit of a letdown. We ended up just stopping at a groovy alien gift shop (where we took the pictures) and I got a Roswell t-shirt, a magnet and a new dashboard statue to add to the collection, I'll take a picture that explains. Next stop Austin, more later
