Well like any other middle-class  Family  Growing up as a child we did our laundry at the laundromat. I look forward to this every week as the laundromat haved an arcade Their and they had a few pinballs. I can remember playing Bad cats. Was the best game  or so I thought at the age of ten. Then like most family's we grew and got a washer and dryer in he house. It was not till I was 13 and was with my friends ridding our bikes up to the local Holiday Inn on 43 and could sneak into their pool. They had a few pins Their and I remember the best spin at this time was high speed. Well as I grew up and got into the real world it was not till this past year I became friends with a guy that has a large pin collection. It was at this moment I got bit by the pinball bug and had to have them. 

I with my wife own a pizza place and have put in this old past time in their. We have some older To new games like walking dead to Hi-Low ace. He older people love them and say I remember playing this as a kid and the young people say this is cool, how does it work? Where is the joystick? So we help them play and have a good time.
