Man... well, it has been a crazy year, covid aside. I was lining up to retire from fixing stuff (again) due to my stepfather being diagnosed with a very aggressive cancer. He was told 6-12 months and that there was nothing much they could do. In fact, 3 months ago, they told him that they were almost at the limit of what could be done. This meant that my mom was planning on moving back into my basement, as she didn't want to be alone. So... that meant that the gameroom would shrink by 70%.

But... they put him on an experimental treatment (with nothing to lose at that point), and the great news is that his lungs and brain are cancer-free! He is waiting for results for his bladder and kidney (where the cancer originated from) but so far, they say it has gone down severely.

So... mom is now happy, not moving in as of now, and we all can breathe a bit now. And, no gameroom shrinking for now. But that is a minor detail. Just happy to see my stepdad feel better.
Patron saint of lost pinball causes.

Stage 5B. All except for NIB crap.
