A few years ago my first born son and I traveled to New Mexico to spend some time with my second born son. It was fun to see these great signs around the little town.
Three of these signs were taken at the Chaos Cafe in Artesia, New Mexico. If you are ever driving through town we recommend breakfast here. (I hope it is still in business!)

On our way North out of Artesia we drove through Roswell and these were the street lamps that lined the main thoroughfare!
Are you familiar with Roswell?
The Roswell UFO Incident was the alleged recovery of extra-terrestrial debris, including alien corpses, from an object which crashed near Roswell, New Mexico, USA, on or about July 8, 1947. Since the late 1970s the incident has been the subject of intense controversy and the subject of conspiracy theories as to the true nature of the object which crashed. The United States military maintains that what was actually recovered was debris from an experimental high-altitude surveillance balloon belonging to a classified program named “Mogul”; however, many UFO proponents maintain that in fact a crashed alien craft and bodies were recovered, and that the military then engaged in a cover-up.
The incident has turned into a widely known pop culture phenomenon, making the name Roswell synonymous with UFOs. It ranks as one of the most publicized and controversial UFO incidents ever.

These signs are just great. Wonderful finds.
Great signs. Like you, I take photos of signs that I find interesting, humorous, entertaining.
How wonderful – these signs are great!
Sign, sign…everywhere a sign! You found some good ones.
It is interesting to see that Roswell is taking it all in stride and going along with the phenomenon instead of trying to distance itself. Love the sign about returning to the real world!
Thank you for putting a smile on my face. 🙂
A fun post, Ellen .. I always love creatively worded/message signs…
The Husband and I visited both Roswell and Artesia several years ago. We stayed in a cute renovated hotel in Artesia. Did you visit the UFO museum in Roswell? What a trip!
Very cool signs … We stayed in Roswell once and yeah, it was crazy great. But I don’t remember artesia at all. Looks like we missed a great place. Wonderful collection of signs!
