    I'm 60 in April. Dad was in the Air Force, so I usually ended up in the Snack Bar or Cafeteria where they had Pinball to entertain the Airmen.
    Spent a lot of time waiting, so picked up the habit around 11 years old in the 70's.

    Forgot about it until 20 years later when I picked up my first home game: Firepower. Now I go to Pinball Addicts Anonymous meetings...
