My wife wasn't anti-pinball, though it wasn't really her thing either. We had a 3 bedroom house and she worked from home using the second bedroom as her office, so the 3rd bedroom which was where I had my one pinball machine at the time was the only space available. I moved my Swords of Fury out to the empty area in the kitchen which was where a kitchen table would go if we had one (we didn't). Later on at a garage sale she found a guy that had a Skylab and a BMX in a garage where they hadn't been touched for over 10 years and bought them both for $100 for me. The BMX had severe playfield wear and the CPU board had been destroyed by leaking batteries, and the Skylab only had 3 legs and the captive balls had been in there so long they had rusted, so I never got either of them to work, but I sold the BMX for $100 to someone that had been looking for one and was ok with the condition it was in, and I gave away the Skylab to a good home, also to someone who was fully aware of its poor condition.

Wow...now THAT_ had to be an interesting arrangement.
Heh. I haven't even told you the half of it. A full recounting would probably get me at least one tilt warning from someone. (-:
