I had a wasted youth playing pinball machines. Always been fascinated by the silver ball more than the video monitor. It got out of control between 1989 and 1993. I had a dream as a kid but never thought I would ever own one. I got lost in my career for almost 20 years. I stumbled across the Northwest Pinball and Arcade show one year and the next year bought my first machine. That machine needed company. Those machines need company as well. I think anyone in the hobby knows about those last statements.
