    Default Somehow I stumbled past this until now

    I came to the forum with a mission to find something about my pre-WWII pachinko which now turns out to be a Viet Nam era machine. Who knows, I might have dropped some yen in it but I haven't checked for finger prints or tear stains yet.

    As you can tell, I'm an old fart, which might be why I missed this place until now. Hope there is some green Jello left where my kind hang out.

    I'm not and probably won't become a big time pachinko collector but there is a lot to learn here. I'm a writer, a retired chip manufacturing engineer ( by selection, not choice or education). I might have worked on your mothballed computer or your pacemaker.

    I've been kicked out or something like that of 49 of the fifty states currently working on overstaying my welcome here in Maine. Last fall we moved into my dream house with an attached barn which I had built for me in 1820. My second wife of 5 years I Found on ebay or something like that is patient so it is a happy house we share with Hansel and Gretel, our two dachsunds.

    Looking forward to getting to know the local denizens who are willing or crazy enough to get to know me
