So a few weeks ago I got injured which has me couch bound for the next couple/few months. So I've had nothing better to do than think about pinball and watch CL. Ron (manitouguy) came by the house, hung out and dropped off a pile of pinball magazines, books etc, an amazing gesture!
Last night my phone goes ding and a Royal Flush shows up on CL, a game I've wanted for quite a while. I'm thinking, great, now what, I can't walk let alone go get and throw a machine around. I can't turn this injury into something that I'm going to regret for any more reasons that I already have. So I messaged Ron and said hey... Ron being such an amazing guy, say's I'll get it for you, when do you need it picked up? I'm like seriously, thinking to myself it's going a be a Tuesday night, he's working during the day and he lives a good 45 min away from me and game is 30 min away from both of us. That didn't stop him though, tonight he spent over 4 hrs of his time driving around, looking and checking out the machine for me, taking it down, loading it up, driving to my place and unloading it into my garage.
It's not everyday that you manage to land a friend as awesome as Ron, his help today was amazing. This is a friendship that was created by our passion for Pinball but it's become so much more.
Thanks Ron, you have a lot of beers coming your way, and not just normal ones either.
