Here, in no particular order and, possibly, of no particular interest, are photos taken the weekend of the 2012 Roswell Cosmic-Con and Film Festival: uncaptioned, uncropped, just thrown out into cyberspace.
A few remarks to help in the deciphering process:
The first are from Friday night’s costume party at the Roswell Zoo. We expected to see space creatures but found zombies, executioners, and belly dancers as well.
The belly dancers danced with pythons. The dancer on the left has one wrapped around her arm. She was returning it to its basket.
That’s David in the tee-shirt with spacemen on the front.
The baby was cute, so I took her picture.
The space car was parked at the Holiday Inn. I don’t know whether it’s a permanent fixture or a visitor.
Billy (now Bill) Mumy was on the premises, but I didn’t see him.
Today’s sights: Superman; an executioner with hood and sword; a bustier-ed, tutu-ed, high-heeled, red-horned blonde devil; a carousel; a ringtailed lemur (authentic, not costumed); a fried chimichanga (also authentic); little green men in front of nearly every business establishment (who’s to say?)
Today’s most delightful sight: A covered wagon (cover looked like plastic) pulled by two beautiful brown mules, out in the middle of nowhere
Today’s most promising sight: The Hardback Coffee Cafe, to be investigated tomorrow
Today’s happiest sight: David, on
learning the hotel room has cable TV
Today’s saddest sight: Me, on learning the pool closed at 10:00 p.m.
Today’s biggest surprise: David handing me the keys and saying, “You drive.”
Today’s most bedraggled sight: Me, after driving for eleven hours
Today’s most chagrined sight: Me, after realizing I didn’t bring the cable for transferring photos from camera to laptop
Today’s most ridiculous eavesdrip: “How long have you been kissing her with the same mouth with which you kissed me?” (TV show about Daytime Emmys)
