Never too late to start again

Growing up in the mid 1970s and 80's we had pinball machines in the basement. Fun-Fest was first and played it for 15 years + . Later added Gorgar, Xenon, Bobby Orr. Loved playing them, but dad and I knew nothing about maintaining. We had pinball guy we would call to fix things or swap out games. I went off to school in 1987 and by 1990 all the games disappeared. Always thought about starting a collection, but was Game of Thrones that finally started it. Wife and I love the show and she was all into the machine. Not so much since we got it, as the minor fixes and mods are not her thing. I have loved it, and really spend more time reading Pinside than playing or working on machine. I read all kinds of stuff, about all kinds of games, projects, fixes. It is better than any book or TV show. Lots of personalities on here. Next machine will be MMRLE and maybe we will keep the medieval type theme going. Thanks for reading. oPinsesame
