70 days ago

The beginning.  Pinball came to me at the age of 14.  Chi Chi's mexican cantina in Lexington, KY had an Addams Family and we would go there as teens to get stuffed on the free chips and salsa, while playing hours of relentless pinball.  What a good machine to first wet my addiction.  Then it was Cyclone in 1992.  This machine resided on the bottom floor of Broward Hall dormitory on the University of Florida campus.  Why study Calculus 2?  When the ferris wheel was beckoning me to come ride on it.  "Hurry, Hurry....,step right up".  "Hey you with the face!"  I remember a 4 hr non-stop session on that thing with 32 replays acheived.  Now, at the age of 49 I have my very own, first ever, NIB Rush Premium.  I love it so.  Corporate pilot by trade, and fly a Gulfstream G600 all over the world for a Fortune 500 company in the Northeast US.  Love my job.  Love my pinball.  Lovin life in general.  Gettin older, gettin wiser, gettin grumpier, flyin straighter, and playin pinball.......
