PHOENIX FOLLIES.

Postby Chris McKeon » Mon Nov 14, 2022 9:52 am

OK: I thought that I would put these thoughts onto Post that will be dedicated to Me Chris McKeon, 925-497-1059. The way I believe i will not be committing some sort of message board inappropriate behavior.

Anyways, here I go, please read on, and I eagerly hope that there might be some interesting replies. Also feel free to call Me. That way We can discuss My Number One Love: That Love would Be My Love of Flight.

Ok as Most of You know by now I Chris McKeon Pounded in to the ground on Sunday March 28th, Yes I did the Whole; "Almost Die Deal". You know I had a thought last night while I was watching Television. I was watching Football. I then search the other channels. I came across the Show; "I SURVIVED" I mean I really should be portrayed on that show. For the Pounding that I took, and the natural course of events, Course of Events for Me anyways. But contrary to what Some Calius Doctor at Kaiser said regarding His inept Bone Headed, Rude Prognosis regarding My possible outcome. I had no intention of being a Potato. I mean I have never seen a Potato Fly. Have any of You seen, or have any of You have Heard of a Vegetable that Flew? Also these Short sighted, narrow Minded, cruel; comments were not limited to Some inept short sighted rude crude Kaiser Doctors. Please do not think that I have some sort of Vendetta against Doctors. Quite contrary I have Doctors who have become Customer-Friends of Mine. Take one Doctor that I knew quite well. Rolf Sommerhaug was A Heart ByPass Surgeon. Well One time I had a job that was to build Rolf a, I believe it anyways. My Job was to build Rolf a very nice Fireplace Mantle. So there I was doing My usual focused attention to detail deal, working away. Well I was cutting some Oak on My Chop Saw. I noticed that Rolf was standing there on My Right side about Ten feet away. Well I stopped My efforts to cut the Oak as accurately, on the Cut line as I was able. So I asked Rolf, What are You starring at Rolf? Rolf said: " I am looking at a Man Who has Squandered His Gifts. You have what One needs to be a Surgeon. You are very intelligent, and You have Beautiful Hands.

Check out this thought of Mine. I want to be able to go to Work, and do Work. I want to be able to Drive Myself to work so Much. I I know, I know You Guys think that I am warped. I mean Work is more important than Flying? Yea Right!

What Goes around, comes around correct?

I have just been sitting here watching Video Clips Regarding Guys Flying together, The two Pilots Fly different types of Glider's. A Paraglider Versus a Hang Glider. But what the Heck They are Quenching their thirst for Free Flight in the same way, I say good on them. If one's lack of Flying causes a Person to begin feeling as though they have an itch that They can not Scratch enough. I say that I really need to scratch this itch that I fully intend on itching by no later than this coming Spring, When John and I get together where I will commence to do a Break Out from This Gravity secured Penitentiary that We all exist in.

To Date, I have only tried having a try with Flying Three Axis Control Twice. I flew as Two Seat Grobe Two seat Sailplane twice.
Flying that Grobe was Fun. But I Shure did feel like some sort of Primate-Pilot. Yes using both My Feet and My Hands to control the Aircraft did, and will continue to take some more Stick and rudder time in order to Fly relaxed,

I keep putting up these Posts, Why do i do this I do not really know why. But at least during this Injury Forced inactive Time regarding My Flying, Well My total lack of Flying. Putting up Posts on this site keeps Me in contact with many Pilots who indeed do Fly. It is kind of strange for Me to thinkl that I May just be able to Fly again. Yes I am just hoping and Praying that I will once again be able to Pursue Free-Flight. Well as of Now iy looks that I might have the chance when John comes up here in the Spring to ret My hand at Piloting a Hang Glider again. It will be the case, if I do indeed do Hook-into a Wing. You see My next Flight. In fact the next time that My Feet leave the Ground. Even if My Flight last only say Fifty feet. If I only get say Ten feet off the Ground. That Flight will be no question, the Most awesome Soul stirring event ever!

SISTER ABUSE:

Guys I just want to take a second that as of late I have been. I do not know why I have been Mean to my Sister. I am assuming that it is because I have been so frustrated with My life. My lacking legal responsibility IE a Drivers License. Yes I have been so petty while i have related to Mu Sister Kathleen, Kathleen who during My true time of need stayed by My side, Day and Night. Well it just might be the case that I have finally mistreated My savior. I mean Kathleen was with Ne Day and Night. I spent three Months in a Coma! I am truly ashamed. I just hope that I have not driven a permanent wedge between us. For in the end I truly do love My Sister.

Ok I hope to get through this deal where the words that have come out of My Mouth might jus cause Me more harm than when i Pounded.

So I just once again had to locate My Phone. So being that I now only leave it in Two places. Well today I left it in a third Place. That Third Place was this morning i Pugged My Phone into My Sisters Charger. kathleen remembered where My Phone was left by Me. But she did not tell Me where my phone was, this was a good tact by My Sister. Kathleen said that My issues with My damaged Brain, that this is the reason that I will not be allowed to drive again. This sort of Judgement I can accept for Kathleen has been there at My side all along this road towards redemption that I have set Myself upon since when I Pounded myself into the ground 12 Years ago.

So I sit down andd I thought. I went through what transpired in My Mind. I remembered that after My Mother and I had our Breakfast's I Got up, I cleared our Dishes. I then walked into the kitchen. I Put My Phone on Kathleen's Charger. There My Phgone was. This cool, for it shows Me that I am indeed making Forward Positive Progress rebuilding My Brain.

We all misplace commonly used things (phones, keys, glasses, etc.). So misplacing is normal and not a cause for concern. Kathleen was wise to let you work it out for yourself.

But your comment about recovering also made me think about your recovery here on the U.S. Hawks.

In particular, almot everything and everyone here on the U.S. is new to you since your accident. Yet you have come to know your way around here. You know me. You recognize my voice. You know Joe and Frank and Bill and many others that you'd never known 10 years ago. You know some of our history and some of the history of our struggles to reform hang gliding. These are all proof that your brain still has the capacity to learn new things and to integrate those new things into your view of the world. That's the job of our brains, and you've been doing it ever since I've known you. The proof is right here in the pages of this forum.    :thumbup:

Chris, I’m wondering about what Kathleen told you about why they won’t let you drive again.
What is required of a driver that you would not be able to do? (Or do good enough?)
For most of us we are expected to pass a written test and an actual driving test with a qualified officer watching.
100% correct on everything is not the requirement.
Those reading about your accident that haven’t met you may be wondering if you are capable of driving and if driving a vehicle is any kind of measuring stick for one’s ability to pilot a weight shift hang glider.
The last thing I want to do is encourage someone to attempt to do something that will likely end In damaging themself. Worse yet I don’t want to get in the way of someone doing something they are capable of doing and they want to do it.
I’ve only met one person out of hundreds that wasn’t able to benefit from a 96 page (hip pocket sized.) book by Robert Harbin titled INSTANT MEMORY. It’s a quick read and can unlock one’s ability to remember things.

OK here it is: I was told by a Neurosurgeon that I have seem that dor He to be willing to sign the Form that will allow Me to ask the DMV, for a Behind the wheel driving portion of the test. My Neurosurgeon said that I needed to go one year without a Grand Mal Seizure. test is a done deal, Check. I have already taken the written portion of the test. But if the DMV wants Me to Re-take the Written portion of the Drivers test. The way I see it I will be able to "ACE THE TEST AGAIN". While so much time has passed because of the Slim possibility that I could have another Grand Mal. I am mere than OK with My nor DRiving.None of You or I would not want Myself to drive if there was a possibility of My having a GRAND Mal Seizure.

I gtry to come across as an extremely Sensible resonable Person these Days. Wish Me Luck, thanks.
