They say that everyone has their price, but I don't really believe that. That every thing has its price, however--that I do believe. In other words, whether direct or indirect, hidden or obvious, every decision we make has a cost associated with it.
Take gardening for instance--in particular, gardening for wildlife. It's lots of fun to see all the little critters running through the yard or buzzing through the air. But it has its drawbacks too.
Not only will birds eat the seeds from the various plants and flowers, they will also plant some in their droppings from forays to other locations. And one of the things birds love to eat--and hence to plant--is poison ivy.
And because the roots can be far away from the leaves, you don't always know when you've been digging in it. Until a blister the size of the quarter forms on the palm of your hand, that is. And if you manage to get poison ivy on the tough skin of your palms--which takes some doing, I think, you can pretty well be sure you are going to have it a lot of other places too. Which I do.
Ah well. Every thing has its price!
