    Talked to Thumper the other day. I guess he’s still alive somehow.

    No idea, actually. We pretty much just exchange personal insults via texts nowadays. Since the nurses take his phone away after dinner, I know I have twelve hours to really let him have it. By morning, he doesn’t remember any of it.

    It’s really fun.

    Hey folks, Kathy wants us to get another pinball machine for the tiki bar. I found a model that would be perfect -Gotlieb Paradise from the 60's. They are going for around $500 if you can find one. It has a hula dancer that is animated when you hit certain targets. There is one called Hula-Hula in ebay for $450, but it is in CT. Any body out there lurking passing through New Milford? https://www.ebay.com/itm/1965-CHICAG...8761%7Ciid%3A1

    Any way if anybody this ways happens to spot one of these guys in the wild please let me know!

    Have not been to Connecticut since I left the New London Submarine Base in 1976.

    I’d check UShip for someone to deliver.

    Pinball machine cost between $400 & $500 to ship. And then you really spin the wheel to see if it survives. Need to find some thing here in FL most likely. I on another board that occasionally somebody will be making a run to pick up a machine or two up north and will offer to pick up a machine for a $100 or $200 if it is along/near their route. But I don't have that kind of luck for timing. I'll just beat the bushes hear in FL unitl I run something down. It took me around 9 months for one we have now. Patience is key!
