I was first exposed to pinball around age 10 when there was one in the waiting room of my father's Laundromat. Cost .05 then (around 1950), and you were supposed to be 18 to play. I like to joke that in high school I "lettered in pinball." With friends we would head for the bowling alleys to play pinball after school. Introduced my son to pinball when he was growing up. He flew in from Manhattan for the TX Pinball Festival and we had a blast.
One, Pistol Poker.
At the 2014 TX Pinball Festival.
I'm just home from the TX Pinball Festival, where I heard about this group. I'm retired after living in Latin America, South Asia & Africa for nearly 30 years. Beekeeping, yoga, yard, dogs, etc. keep me as busy as I want to be.
