Ed, I really appreciate the donation to the Michael J. Fox Foundation in support of my effort. If I survive the event, I'll be sure to post a picture that you all want to see of me in my biking spandex (you realize of course that the late great Phyllis Diller was also from St. Louis)! After our Reunion of People Who Had Never Met in Alexandria, I was diagnosed with ulcerative colitis which has been in remission for several years. Along with a family history of colon cancer it has put me in the high risk category so I undergo colonoscopies every 3 years. Like quitting smoking, they are a PITA but I have come to fully understand the necessity of periodic roto-rooting to keep the pipes clean! Be healthy, that's an order!
