I, Hartley Jackson, was not able to attend the meeting because I had had a nightmare hrown myself out of bed landing two feet away on the hardwood floor.

When I got home I was still receiving care and unable to attend the meeting. I asked Midge to take notes that I could use to wend you this report.
