Although tourism is Flagstaff's number 1 industry, (we even hosted the first family last week). Many people are still afraid to visit our quaint little town. The most common fear is of animal attacks; we have healthy populations of elk, black bears, cougars, and coyotes large animals that when provoked are certainly capable of tearing a human limb from limb.
Let me assure the timid among you that animal attacks are down significantly this year thanks to the efforts of our forestry department. Aside from a small band of rabid skunks, all of the animals have agreed to be on their best behavior through the rest of the tourist season.
I would come visit Arizona, but currently our deer population is outta control, too many tourists feedig the bears or something..so I gots to go defend my garden..
Ah, yes, but you conveniently overlooked the rampant microbe problem.
I have been to your beautiful town and loved every minute of it.
Everyone was so nice! It was about 15 years ago and I was traveling with my 12-year-old nephew. We had never been to the southwest and all we kept say was "It's so big here!" Everyone kept laughing at us. They would say isn't the ocean big enough? Yes we have the ocean on Cape Cod, but the horizon and sky feels very different.
You could try it, but with Moose I would reccomend the shoulder pads as well.
good idea. thanks. but what about the tourists? the have been known to attack too?
Only when they first arrive. The altitude makes them sleepy after awhile.
Oh, good point...flatlander's.....ugh. i havent ever even looked at your profile yet...I am going now. BTW you missed the masturbation thread, it got closed allready!!
What a shame. I was looking forward to thoughtful discussions of: techniques, inspirations, accoutrements..etc. etc.
Those wishing to indulge in naughtiness should instead proceed directly to the entertainment section of the home page.
I am sorry I wrote a naughty word!!!! I didnt know it was naughty...omg I cant stop laughing.....I got snipped wiht a super funny phrase..."naughty word"...HAHAHAHAHAHAHA and I wrote OMG all in one day!!!!!
but really, I know this is a serious place, and people really make money here. I honestly would never want to jepoardize that, I truly did not know that was a naughty word. I am sorry, and its funny.
I even managed to spell 'naughty' wrong, that was some very unprofessional snipping on my part.
Huh-huh, she said masturbation, huh-huh...
p.s. thanks for the e-mail, very scary, you'll give me nightmares.
YOU DESERVE NIGHTMARES!!!!!! I wrote you back. I feel so stupid, YOU snipped me? AHHAAHAHHAAHAHAHHA that was very professional looking. I wish there was a better word for LOL cuz you have no idea how nmuch I laughed today. really. this has been the funniest day ever on hubpages.
Actually the level of (in)activity puts them to sleep.
Got to admit... I thought you were from somewhere else with that helmet. Guess the Cards haven't won you over to their side yet?
I love your fair city...and what an added bonus to jump on over to the Grand Canyon whenever you feel like it...mighty Awesome!
Sounds lovely. Nice to know all the animals are on their best behaviour. I've always wanted to have a closer view of a Bear, without it chasing me...
I don't know Ron, the weather there seems to stay pretty average. Who can stand the mid 80's and all that sunshine all the time.
I guess it would be all right if you're into natural wonders and like to breathe fresh air instead of the smog laden cities on the East and West coasts.
The weather everywhere is pretty average. By definition.
Nothing average with the weather in Chicago. Mark Twain is credited with the saying "If you don't like the weather, wait 5 minutes." Chicagoans adapted the saying to "...wait and hour."
Sentences starting 'Boom! So, you're scared of...' are a registered trademark of another hubber.

I've often said, the issue of being afraid to come out of the closet, is because you don't want to lose a loved one, a family member who might stop loving you because you are gay. I've also said, WHO CARES! Happiness is what you need in life. This thought of family, family, family... is just so...
