So my kid is now 17. Came across this pic and kind of makes me sad. He just got accepted to U of I engineering. I honestly contribute a lot of his interest in engineering to pinball. My son would spend hours upon hours with me working on pinball machines. To this day, he still likes working on them. He is going into mechanical engineering.
House is going to feel pretty darn empty when he leaves. But, I guess I will have a lot more time to work on my machines that are in need of some TLC!
