I am feeling a bit frisky (for an old guy - not quite as bent over as in winter) as I begin to experience warmth not generated by oil, gas or wood, but by the sun, which orb had betrayed me as recently as last fall. Cold, yellow, stone in the sky, seems to be morphing, turning into a bit of a heater. Cheers bro, coulda done that a bit sooner, yo.

So, like a bear considering re-emergence, I stick my head outside for the first time in 90 days and I find that my face does not instantly freeze in place...
