I just qualified today. Is this a good thing or a bad thing?

I don't know. Are you a good person or a bad person?

Anyway, welcome to the lunatic asylum.

Where is your pie and what flavor do you like?

Does it matter? You can't go back even if you wanted.

Well, considering that the alternative is that you would be dead. I guess we'll categorize it as a good thing.

Welcome. Did you bring us pie?

OK, no pie but definitely birthday german chocolate cake.

Did a double up cyclocross race over the weekend to celebrate, and survived.

And yes, the doctor is trying to get me to do an up periscope but since there is no family history, I'm thinking of doing the virtual version? (Is that close enough to bowel movements?)

The colonoscopy is a very good idea, despite having no family history. It's the pre-cleansing that's a bit rough, but you'll get through that, too. Make sure you have a driver to bring you home, as the drugs will whack you out for a few hours. PG

Welcome abroad ColorChange. As an aside, did you do the spring ride out of New Glarus a couple of years ago with the Chicago group? As another aside, the problem with the virtual version-if they see something you will need to redo the prep.

Yes. It can be both. Depends a whole lot on your attitude and outlook on life.

OK - but not good enough. What about the pie? German Chocolate cake doesn't quite hack it.

Well it should also coincide with things like a colonscopy and other general medical check up. Don't delay, its like your original question, good thing/bad thing. But its a real thing.

Admission to this distinguished group is definitely a plus! But the 50+ jersey orders "I THINK" just closed a few days ago. Next spring you can order one of these speed enhancing and "all the rage" bike jerseys. Keep watching for more.
