 In the late 70’s to early 80's. I was a young kid. I remember highlights of those times. My parents where bowlers and weekly visits to the Bowling Ally was a regular for many years. This is the time I can remember being able to roam freely. As my Mom and Dad where busy with their socializing, drinking, smoking,...bowling. A Dollar or Two was handed to me which only lasted minutes. Most the night I was a spectator of the older kids and even adults....I remember cigarette balancing on a neighboring Pinball machine and Beer bottles on the glass. I so badly wanted to touch the  playfeild parts. On occasion I would see someone unlocking the coin door. Seeing what I thought was hundreds of dollars in quarters....arcades soon took my interest,..for the life of me I can’t remember one pinball theme that was in that game-room....
