It’s Feb. 4, the Cubs’ pitchers and catchers report to Mesa in nine days, and the temperature in Red Fork right now is 72 degrees Fahrenheit.

It’s still winter, of course, and I’m sure we’ll be shivering here tomorrow, but if this is the trailer for spring, I can’t wait to see the movie.

I’m heading out the door to pick up a desk lamp for my new desk and some bookends for my old one. Maybe when I finish picking up the rest of the clutter in my office, I’ll post some pictures of the new desk and the new configuration of my office. I think it looks pretty good, and it’s lots more efficient.

Life is good. Hope you’re happy, wherever you are.
