I grew up in Lakeville, MA., a small town near Cape Cod just south of Boston. I've lived in Columbus, OH, Silver Spring, MD, and currently Bloomington IL. Been a banker for 35 years. Interests include Cub Scouting, hand & long guns, guitar & piano, motorcycles, and a deep devotion to Porsche cars - particularly the air-cooled ones. I attended UMass Lowell and on the 1st floor of our 18-story dormitory was not only a Rathskeller bar but also a game room. Among other games was 1 pinball machine. It was a Joker Poker. Some of my greatest memories include playing that game for hours per week over 4 years. I can't imagine the pounding that machine took over the years and wonder where that specific pin is today. In July 2017 I played Joker Poker again for the first time since 1982. Wow. They joy was real. Made me think that whoever said "life is short" was dead wrong. It is a long haul man. Now I have an original unrestored and unmolested Joker Poker in my garage. Life is good.
