Re: ROUTINE ON THE ROAD – REFUGE BY THE RIVERSIDE

With School and University back in session, my wife let me out of the province and to head to Montreal finally. (after 6 months due to all this nonsense) I was last ON THE ROAD for Pinball and work related adventures in March on the 11th and 12th in Montreal and I watched before my eyes as life cha...

Re: Matching parts to members (And you know that notion, just crossed my mind)

Stumbling on Flybacks One of my buddies is fixing a D9200 Wells-Gardner digital monitor (one of the last CRTs from Well-Gardner) and asked if Alouette had some flybacks left over for this multi-mode 27" beast. I remember these monitors from when they came out, a sort of hybrid between the old CRT c...

Re: ROUTINE ON THE ROAD – REFUGE BY THE RIVERSIDE

Last Saturday was the closest I got to living the routine which was starting to take hold during those pre-covid times. Bonus,- no one was sick or coughing that day, or even losing their sense of taste or smell. Everything from the A.M. to the P.M. felt fine. The refuge was good as well. I have quit...

Re: THE MAACA DAILY NEWS! Your daily read about YOU,the members!

Once again, I simply have too much to say these days as life keeps making me stretch out straight in ways I did not think were possible anymore, and hence I find that I am simply beside myself. I know, that this may look weird when you get a glimpse of my being standing next to a higher looking shad...

LINKS_LINKS_LINKS Memory can be a great tool. And when used properly, it can colour your present like nothing else. That is exactly what happened to me this morning at work as I was sorting out some parts I found. I gradually became linked to another time. Back in late 2015, at the age of 52 I was ...

Re: Places to play - Windsor

Glad to hear that you decided to take on some of what you do best, fixing planes I mean. A routine has begun to return to you, and I sincerely hope that it is a welcomed occurrence. And oh yeah, some pinball work can not hurt as well after a day's work.

Happy for you dude.

Super Interesting Cait !! It never ceases to fascinate me when we hear about historical occurences through the people that were actually there.
