    Wow. Thank you everyone for the kind words.

    I always think of my Mother on this day and what she all went through. She lost her first baby. Had my sister. Then when she was pregnant with me she started losing water. Her doctor told her if she miscarried to not cry as there was likely something wrong with the fetus.

    I was born at 8:18am this day in 1954 at St. Mary's Hospital in Minneapolis, my Mother had a c section. When I was born my lungs collapsed and was pretty much a goner. I was baptized and given the last rights.

    My Mother spent the day alone in her room, I can't imagine the hell a woman would go through going home empty handed, again.

    About 5am the next morning a nurse came in and woke my Mother. She told my Mother she wasn't supposed to be there. She wanted my Mother to know that Dr. Berglund had worked on me all day and night, and that I was still alive, and I was going to make it.

    Now I've pretty much lived a wild life. Mainly because of the industry I was born into. I've gotten to see more and do more than most people ever imagine. A friend once told me that I'd forgotten more fun than most people will ever know.

    And it is true. I've truly been blessed. There has only ever been one thing I wish I could have done or changed, and never had the opportunity.

    Dr. Berglund was old when I was born, and didn't live too many years after. Before I was old enough to know.

    I wish I could have thanked him. For my Mother and me.

    Happy birthday, Lloyd! Always appreciate your advice and good cheer. You've helped me a few times over the years through rgp. Hope you have a great year and have many more.

    Happy Birthday Lloyd!

    As a newbie to this site and to owning a pinball machine, you don't know me from Adam but you are always one of the first to post on any tech help threads that I've posted here.

    I just wanted to express my gratitude for being so willing to share your knowledge with newbies to the hobby such as myself.

    Wow, what a touching story. Truly inspirational. Thank You. It's strange what can happen in this life. Me and my wife were registered for adoption. One day Children's services called and said a newborn boy had been found in the alley behind their offices. He could have been run over or eaten by dogs. He's our son now (12) and first chair violin and red belt Taekwondo. Only by the grace of God.

    Sounds like a very big deal to us all but I'll bet the doctor just had to install a couple new switches and a pop bumper or two in the right place. That would explain a lot of things to be honest.
    Happy B-Day LTG!!!

    So this is my first post. I have been a lurker on RGP and Pinside for a number of years. My first NIB was POTC in 2007 and have seen a lot of personalities come and go. After reading many greta and not so greta posts on both sites, I have never been compelled to post until now...

    Happy Birthday Lloyd!

    Over the years you have touched lots of folks that don't post very often, for that you should be very proud.
