We lived in Plano for a while post Katrina & the year b4 the storm I worked briefly with Paul McKinney - he was a contractor working on-site at my office in NOLA (temp project) - I remember the day he walked by my desktop and noticed my pinball desktop wallpaper - he told me all about the TPF & sadly even while we lived in Plano I couldn't make it but finally this year I may be able to - really hope so as after all of these years I'm back into pinball.
We bought a machine last summer & are ready to add a 2nd machine ASAP.
My wife's recent luekemia (cancer) and upcoming possible stem cell transplant and a ton of visits to MD Anderson in Houston have put a dent into our funds but pinball is something we can both play at home and comes in handy right now>.
Does anyone know if Paul is still associated with the TPF? I lost touch with him several years ago. The bank which i worked for was bought by a major credit card company & my actual office is split between VA and Plano (though I work remote 99% of the time from SE La.) - trying to setup a Plano site visit right now for the end of March & finally make the TPF (glad we got back into pinball last year)
