A Simple Request...

 

We have a little problem in Flagstaff...  So many people from Phoenix and other lower elevation areas come up to play in our snow... and leave trash and broken sleds all over our mountain and forests.  This pizza place is on the way up to the mountain and snow play areas...  They always have entertaining messages, I like this subtle ask...

 

 

 

Three more days...
Oh, you know I will be right there by your side, baby...

yes, some people may need more than a subtle reminder (like a whack maybe)!
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: I'd love to whack them!!! One of our residents goes up to a snow play area every weekend and fills his Subaru Forrester with broken and abandoned sleds. It's despicable!

That might work with a few folks...sometime subtle is pest [I am told].
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: With a few.... we'll see - winter's only begun! smile

A cute find on the sled. But then it brings to light the disregard for the "trash" the people leave behind. It peaks my curiosity how rampant this problem is.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Yes - I'm amazed that with all the attention brought to light about our world just being filled up with trash - that some people still think it's someone elses concern... sigh.
Seriously, indeed. What's wrong with "these people?????"

You're almost on your way, Elizabeth. Travel mercies.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: I KNOW!!!
Almost.... Thank you, Ginnie!

This must make you and other residents so mad, Elizabeth, when you care so much for your own environs. It is making me cross reading about it
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Yes - I just don't understand. Frank always gets so upset about trash out in nature... He always says "If you can take it up the trail full, you can surely take it back empty"
J'ai effectivement entendu parler de ces personnes sans gênes qui ne respectent plus rien ..triste !!!
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: It's very sad! I wonder what their parents are teaching them?!

sad Are that the same people that are in front of the parade yelling that "we" have to do something about climate-change????
Some people you cannot change and you did not read this, maybe I can make my telephone pole run around and see how many hits it can make...
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Nah - they're probably the ones denying climate change exists!!!
HAHAHAHA!!!! Very good, Astrid!!

Yes, a charming request - an Italian pizza restaurant? Sorry, I don't like the word 'baby' to name Frank.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Yes! Yes it is!
I don't really like it either - but it's the lyrics to the song... smile

Yes it's bad manners indeed to leave your junk lying around
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Bad manners is putting it lightly!
Makes you want to collect up all their trash and dump it in their local park
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: It does - or better yet, in their garden!

Oh dear, that is a big problem in so many places.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Pretty pathetic!

They probably flee after the painful experience...
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Ha! I think that's giving them credit!
Isn’t it funny how different areas get different but similar sets of problems. My aunt lives on a popular beach area in Ontario. People come to their summer homes, get a kitten, and leave them when they go back to their cirties in the fall. My aunt and uncle feed tons of strays and spay and neuter them. They have a deal with the vet who does one free after they pay for four.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Oh geez. Seriously. What is WRONG with them????
Interesting message. Friendship
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: To the point!
Sadly the same sort of thing happens over here at tourist places, these days people have too much money and just buy another one if it's needed.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: UGH! What's wrong with them?
i love your drive by picture of the Fratelli Pizza sign Elizabeth...

only 2 more sleeps until you are together again....petersmile
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: And they have good pizza, too!
YES!!!

If you have snow, you have cold. If you have cold, you need fire. Problem solved.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: HA!! Good one, Harry!
