What a great time of year to have a birthday. The gray, freezing winter has ended and the warm days of spring beckon us to go outside and see the emerald green grass and flowers emerging from the dormant ground.
This is the time for optimism to abound. The reset button has been pressed. All teams are returned to an even footing with thoughts of post-season glory wafting though Cactus and Grapefruit league stadiums from Glendale, Az to Jupiter, Fl.
Wide eyed rookies and grizzled vets alike are hoping they have what it takes to make the team. A first chance for the former and maybe the last for the latter.
Our very own OBF has been along for the ride, and shared the hopes and dreams of the Dodgers for over 65 years. Happy Birthday Joe. I hope for this next year, that you have good health, happiness and get to celebrate a Dodgers World Series Championship!

🎁 It’s Wally’s birthday too! 🎂
