    This is my Father in 1962 in appropriate operators attire.

    If your Father is still alive. Do something with him today.

    I know from experience. The day will come when you won't be able to.

    Happy Father’s Day everyone! Go play a game of pinball with your pop, or have him over if you’re lucky enough to still have him around.

    I'm lucky to have mine. He just turned 80 and still snowboards (took it up at age 68!) and plays racquetball, regularly beating guys a 3rd his age. He'll outlive my fat ass.

    Happy Father's Day, Dad!!!

    Wise advise. I spent a couple of hours today working with my dad on his super c tractor.... even though it was my wife's birthday dinner at my parents house. He just retired in December at the ripe old age of 73. He was the chief chemist at brenntag mid south and had worked for them 51 years. He now making puzzles from wood and helping raise my brother's kids! I glad he is still around to help me and I can help him. I always think of cosmo Kramer fish tale restore...man I love to do that with my dad. Anyways I'll stop boring yalll Have a happy Sunday!

    Happy Fathers Day to all the dads out there! Hope you get to play some pinball with your kids.

    Been a few years now for me but I still remember taking him to some buffet that I wasn't keen on because that's what he wanted. Now I drag my kids and family to the same places because that's what he wanted. Keeping fathers day tradition alive. Happy Fathers Day everyone. Great advice from LTG!

    A day to remember our Dads.....and a day to enjoy with your kids.....It was always a Special day for me, I lost my Dad 37 years ago when he was 46.
    I share with my children, who never met him, that he was a cross of Fred Flintstone and Archie Bunker.
    My favorite view......

    Here's one of my daughters helping me clean pinball parts!

    This is my first father's day being a Dad. My daughter has given me so much fulfilment in her short life so far. I get to bring her over to my parents later for dinner and spend time with my Dad. I get to appreciate my Dad not only as my father but as my daughter's grandfather. Happy Father's Day to all the dads!!

    Wishing every dad a Happy Father's Day!

    I don't think mine ever played pinball before I put a machine in the farm shop -- I think he likes it. Was talking to mom the other day and she said could not figure out where he went some evenings. . . only to find him down there playing!

    Happy Father's Day to the Step-Dads too !

    All the work and more of being a Father, and too often over looked when it comes to praise or remembering them too.

    Amen to that! I am twice over a step father and this fathers day was the first time I was called out by my stepson! (still scratching my head as to Y) good thing I am broke after buying the CV this weekend!

    Sad to say, I lost my 86yr old Dad (Al) just this last Sunday.
    Fortunately the whole family was there with him in his last hours.
    20180614_092919 (resized).jpg

    He had a big impact on me and was indirectly responsible for me becoming a pinball addict.
    You can read some of that in an article I wrote and posted in
    the pinside topic thread <Welcome to my pinball basement> post#78, "An Ashtray Full of Nickels".

    I am truly sorry for your loss.

    I know he'll remain in your love for him and memories.

    Happy Father's Day!

    Some great stories in here.

    My dad has always been there for me when I needed help. He put me on a Sinclair ZX-81 when I was 6 and helped me learn all about how computers work, which launched me into a life of computer science and engineering.

    He introduced me to model rocketry and took me with him to compete internationally. One hell of a scale modeler too. He is second from the left, behind his Saturn 1B scale model. This was in Leszno, Poland in 1994.
