Everyone has some special and personal thing that means spring is coming. To some it might mean seeing tulips blooming or a couple days of warm sunshine after a bad storm. Mine is baseball. When Rich says, "Hey hon, pitchers are reporting today." That tells me spring has sprung.
I live across the street from University of the Pacific. It's a beautiful campus that has a strong Ivy League feel to it. Did you ever see Raiders of the Lost Ark? Well, when Harrison Ford is teaching and that girl kept blinking her eyes at him and the eye lids said "love you" or "want you" I can't remember but the thing I'm trying to get at is that whole scene and all the exterior shots were filmed at UOP. But, I digress.
We walked to the baseball game last night. You could smell the cherry blossoms, bbq smoke, hot dogs and fresh cut grass. I also know it's spring when I walk through the campus and all the co-eds are out in bikinis trying to get a tan, but that's a whole other subject in and of itself. Spring is definitely in the air. Welcome back, Spring. I missed you and if you haven't noticed the co-eds have missed you too.
