E.T. and friends

This weekend was the fun, kooky, and (yes, even) informative UFO Festival in McMinnville, Oregon. Mike likes to go, and I'll admit it's a good time! The weather was beautiful and people watching was excellent. ;) One of the speakers was Travis Walton, the UFO witness and abductee on whom the film "Fire in the Sky" was based. I hadn't seen the movie before, so it is on our Netflix list now. (As a bonus it features James Garner, whom I really like.)

This is Travis talking about those pesky aliens who abducted him:



A cool part of the festival is the parade in downtown McMinnville. Here is an alien float...



And an alien family...



And even an alien dog...

As a Star Trek Fan, that would be my kind of weekend.

I noticed that... perhaps it is an after effect of your abduction. ;)

I didn't see this until now! Cool pictures :) I like James Garner too - he was good in Maverick!
