A habit takes form...

I moved to Florida last year escaping the craziness of Southern California.  Found myself walking into ReBoot in Dunedin... FIFTEEN pinball machines flashed and twinkled and made those amazing sounds utterly transorming me back to the roller rink of my childhood and fishing for that last quarter so I could "play the silver ball".

Well something in me went... "Boom! This is MY THING."

So now I have three Pins... ALIEN Pinball Bros Standard, LEGENDS OF VALHALLA and a STAR WARS COMIC ART PRO!

I also found an amazing painter in St. Pete and commisioned him paint me a playfield with my three favorite action movies (DIE HARD, DRIVE and HEAT) as the theme(s). He's now doing a HIGHLANDER playfield painting for me.

Sooooo, I'm hooked... The only problem is lack of square footage for more machines...LOL.
