    Just thought i'd pass along a story:

    I posted a few weeks back about NOT having a cab speaker in my whirlwind. Shortly thereafter I received an unprompted PM from Greg at Pinball Pro, which those of you who don't know is a supplier of speaker upgrades for your pins.

    Anyway, Greg offered to send me a speaker for my whirlwind that he wasn't using. I was very thankful for the offer. I even offered to pay S/H, but Greg refused.

    I received my speaker yesterday and plugged it into my ww, and now the sound is terrific!

    He also sent a kick a&& Pinball Pro decal.

    Greg, thanks so much for sending out the speaker to me. Sometimes its these little acts of kindness that speak volumes. (pun intended).

    Awesome! I know who to buy speakers from!

    John, that cat is disturbing.

    #3 6 years ago

    Which? The cat in the pic or my ex wife?

    #4 6 years ago

    Yes he is a great guy!!!

    #5 6 years ago

    This doesn't surprise me a bit. I've known Greg for 18 years and have seen this kind of thing many times. Greg is a great guy!

    Greg and I talk every day. Not once had he mentioned this to me. Just goes to show that he did this from his heart and not for any kind of recognition. NICE! Greg, I'll be calling you soon.

    Hey.....by the way.....my BK doesn't have a cabinet speaker.....

    He should come on here and say, "Your welcome"...so we can give HIM some Thumbs Up Action...

    I know..

    I seem to be the one getting all the Karma for my post, when really ovfdfireman should be getting it.

    I imagine he will pop up eventually.

    BB you deserve the thumbs for posting this. Usually it's the bad news and complaints that people spend their time on. I like this better!

    If you haven't seen the Pay It Forward - Free Parts thread, go there too.

    One day you're getting kicked in the groin, the next day you're getting patted on the back. Like a box of chocolates.

    #16 6 years ago

    Pay it forward.

    Damn it John!

    Alright if you must know......my 10 year old son is into martial arts (1st degree black belt) and i am very involved. The high school where I live opted to put on a women's self defense class for the girls soon to leave for college. To help out our small community, I helped with this class......little did I know that meant I would have to get kicked in the nards about 100 times.......I had a pad, didnt hurt, but scared the bajesus out of me when that first foot came haulign ass at my ding ding....thats for sure

    #23 6 years ago

    I bet some girls went to school today feeling a little better about themselves and their abilities. If nothing else, they just might be a little more relaxed after blowing off some steam. This is finals week for the seniors. A little stress relief can go a long way! Way to take one (or 100) for the team and give back to our community!!

    #24 6 years ago
    Quoted from Pafasa:

    and give back to our community!!

    or give less (children) to the community if kicked enough lol

    #25 6 years ago

    No swinks, I'm the one contributing the children to the community. Six to be exact. Greg has a ways to go to catch up to my accomplishment there!........Wait a minute.........hmmmmmm.......Clever, Very Clever! Why didn't I think of that?

    If you got it in the nads you missed your block. :naughty:Get hit in the nose, we call that a "face block!" :liar:Which martial art? Congrats to you and your son. He must have started very young to be a 1st degree already. Glad to hear you're involved.
