UFO McDonalds Roswell, NM


      I grew up in New Mexico, about 160 miles from Roswell.  7 years before I was born an airborne object crashed on a ranch near Roswell and Corona, NM.
      What it was, well, that has been up for discussion all of my life.  It could have been a top secret surveillance balloon ... the official government story, or it could have been aliens, as some people believe.   
     Heck if I know what it was.  I first heard stories about the 3 foot tall aliens that crashed, all deceased except for one, at school in the early 60's ... decades before books and the TV show.
        I just heard that Roswell has a UFO shaped McDonald's.  I don't know when it was built, but how cool is that!  I want to go!

    1. If I just had a car that would make it out of town, and money for gas, I would go lots of place! :)

  3. We skipped Roswell when we were in New Mexico two years ago. Maybe we shouldn't have!

    1. I would love to hear about your trip to New Mexico. I was born there and lived there about 20 years. I just love New Mexico.

  4. I will always believe there was an UFO that crashed there. If you haven't been to the UFO museum it is a must see. I just can't believe I was in Roswell this past Monday and didn't know about this McDonalds as I would have eaten there, and I am not real crazy over food. But someday I will go back. Maybe just me and my baby sister.

    1. I think it is a great looking McDonalds too. I wonder if at Halloween everyone dresses as little gray aliens.

  6. Betsy, I was born in Roswell in 1949. My dad always teased me that the gestitation of an alien was 2 years....he said that my "real" daddy was a "ship" captain.................I have no memory of New Mexico as we moved to Okla. in 1951 and I've never been back. I really want to see it so I have it on my bucket list.

    1. Most of New Mexico is beautiful. Roswell is not one of the beautiful parts but Ruidoso west of Roswell is so pretty. I hope you get to go to NM soon. My sister tells me the UFO museum in Roswell is very interesting. Having been born there you will have to include Roswell on your trip. Your dad must be quite a character!
