    My first High Score was 1571 on my Fair Lady 47 years ago from today, 6/13/69. The 1956 Fair Lady pinball machine has been in my family since the 1960's, and in my possession now. I was 9 years old and we were living in Mountain View California on Levin Avenue. Apricot trees forever across the street from the garage with Fair Lady pinball machine sitting inside.

    My High Score of 1571 was carved in the wood with a Bic pen by me in a glorious moment as I had beaten my brothers' scores-for a little while... at least. I remember the moment as if it was yesterday. Come to think of it, what happened to Bic pens? Ahh the memories, of the great days of a carefree childhood, climbing trees, riding your bike everywhere as a 9-year old in California smelling apricot blossoms and living the American free life back in the 1960's.

    Glorious Days!!! Celebrate like its 1969!!
