"It is, indeed, my pleasure to. . . " I like those words so very much better than "have to." Can you feel the difference in your gut when you try them on for size?

Knapp Weed is considered a noxious invasive species here in Oregon. The roots release a chemical that discourages other plants from growing. Letting it go unchecked is not a good idea. So Michael, another volunteer, and I marked off a section of the affected land and took it on. Three hours of focused effort equalled ten bags piled at the corner for the city to pick up.
We'll go after it again one of these days. Two more "get to's" ought to do.
