    Hey all, been a long time since I have been on here, Just figured I would say Hello, and let those who were my friends know how things are going!

    I do not do anything with pinball any longer, this group sadly had a large part to do with it, but I do stay in touch with one or two people on Facebook.

    My Rocky machine is still here and doing fantastic, That is the only machine here, everything else is gone, as when I decided it was time to move on, I really closed the door on Pinball.

    Health wise, things are somewhat stable, however my eyes continue to get worse as does my back, the diabetes is stable, but always a battle, and my legs and feet are still numb all the time, that damage is done, and will not ever come back.

    I still want to let those who wanted to come see and try the Rocky machine that the offer was still open, and again those who supported me when I was trying to get it back, I again want to say THANK YOU. That machine is the center of what is now my Rocky room, which is FULL! I live in Milford MA, and if you want to come and see and try it, your always welcome.

    To those who wanted it, I am out for good on the Pinball hobby.. this place and be very cruel when it wants to be, but such is life...

    Every time I see the machine, I think about all the positive support and try not to think of the negative, and those that did support, again thank you, Words cannot explain what getting that machine back meant to me!

    Anyway just a 3 year check in to say hey to everyone.
