In January my oncologist gave me permission to fly again.
So I bought a radio and all the adapters for a hard wired PTT.
What a mess. Wires everywhere.
The biggest inconvenience was the push to talk adapter.
That's when the Reefer Madness kicked in and I got the idea to make a wireless push to talk.
Now that I have this done and installed I started getting side effects from the new chemo therapy, and was ordered by the doctor to not be PIC until further notice.
Here's what I came up with.

Jake, life is a fight (especially after 12} and you are a good fighter. You can not imagine how many projects people have for you to finish. So, even with "f..k them all, those idiots", you "have no right" to succumb to anything, but finish all projects, yours and theirs. Be good and healthy.
P.S. Some time ago you were experimenting with wireless rotor tach. What is the state of it now? Thanks. Georgi.

Here's what I came up with.

I was excitedly watching the video hoping to easily solve my cobweb of wires issue. HA! You got me. "Go to F'ing school!" Okay. I guess I'll have to continue to put up with wires. You're such a tease.

Hey Jake, I'm going through the same thing right now. When they originally told me at the Oncologist's office, I told the nurse they need to put up a wall of cancer jokes to lighten the mood in that place. She smiled that knowing smile and said "yeah, we're not doing that." When I told my buddies I said I want humor, not sadness from you guys. Better to laugh than cry about it. I like your style.

The best cancer joke I heard is totally and completely inappropriate. I'll PM it to you.

Eric, how about my joke, I made after my doctor informed me about "mostly mild" skin cancer:
Doctor ( at weekly Zoom appointment with his skin cancer patients): " And now, at the end of our session let's sing together, as we always do our favorite song by John Denver "Sunshine on my shoulders makes me happy"

Never made jokes, first time was scarry as shit. Thought was urinary tract, false alarm. Then accidental discovery of Melanoma. Surgery, drugs, ok so far 2011... Retired, went sailing, uh oh, PSA... Surgery, drugs, then Radiation and more drugs. Nothing mattered so getting ready for drugs again...

People I've met along the way have been a big help. You definitely need a sense of humor...
