There’s No Such Thing as a Free Lunch

Living in paradise does have its downside occasionally.  Right now we are in the midst of the spring pollen season.  When you are outside, it threatens to close up your throat…your hands feel gritty if you touch anything…the air is so thick with it, you can even smell it. 
And then the yellow haze insidiously sweeps onto your screened porch.  This is what happens after four cats trample through it.  Imagine the amount collecting on the furniture and the floor.
Now think how much of it is tracked inside.  Even without opening the windows, the pollen finds its way into the house.  Thankfully, this plagues us only a few weeks.  Then come the no-see-ums and the mosquitoes.
