The next ARTC officers/board meetings are set for Sun July 27.

My colonoscopy is set for Monday July 28.

I won’t be allowed to eat much of anything for the 12-24 hours before the procedure. By the time of the ARTC meetings I’ll be down to pretty much just water.

Plus I’ll be drinking this horrible goop they purge the gastrointestinal tract with. The helpful advice the nurse gave my wife when she underwent this procedure: “Don’t get far from a bathroom.” What they don’t tell you is that in addition to clearing the GI tract via the designated exit, it also makes you throw up.

I should be in a dandy mood for the ARTC officers meetings.
