    So, it was about 9pm last night and we got our kids to bed. Usually that means a little television and then to bed ourselves. So, I came downstairs after tucking in children, and my wife offers up, "You wanna drink some wine and play pinball?"

    Wow! That was out of left field as she rarely plays even though she supports me having this hobby. We each drink a couple glasses of wine and play one game on each of my pins. She actually beats me on WOZ which was great.

    WOZ is the only game she really, really enjoys. She could care less if I sell any of the other pins, but she even confirmed with me that we are never selling WOZ. I just installed the 1.22 update so it is even getting better.

    Hopefully I can have more evenings like last night. I also hope you folks get to enjoy this hobby with the ones you love. Have a great day.

    That's sweet. Doubtful my wife would do that. She is not a big fan of my hobby. Although i did convince her once a while back to play some strip pinball!!

    Nice! Mrs. tamoore will play if I ask her, but I don't think she's ever asked me to play...

    Congrats. I really like my MM. I play better on it than anything else.

    Yeah its really cool when your significant other enjoys the things you do. Pinball is a must for this house we both enjoy it. And now we found the joust pin that was at expo game room. It was a blast and now i am looking for one to have.

    I'm lucky to have a companion who likes pinball too.
    No begging to stretch the budget for a new purchase here! I just take her along when I go look at a prospect.
    Then, I have a rational, grounded mind with which to exchange feedback - she helps keep my enthusiasm (foolishness) in check and supports spending money where it counts.
    The pinballs also enjoy a prominent space inside the home - as opposed to the garage/storage area game rooms I've seen.

    I love my sweetheart. She's the best.
    Now to get to work on that strip pinball idea I read about somewhere.
