Title: Farewell... thank you for all the memories
Post by: zenbone on October 12, 2020, 11:22:53 AM
We are finally packed up and rolling out of the Tampa Bay area. We are moving up to Wisconsin leaving Clearwater (which we called home since 1993) machines in tow. i have always really enjoyed being part of the Village community and think very highly of the village family. I have always enjoyed reading the board and scanning the for sale each day. Special thank you to Curly and Marshall for helping grow our pinball family and for helping me stumble through my random pinball questions. I will no doubt still be on the board as it is part of my morning coffee wake up and happily share pictures of snow if anyone wants ha ha
see you all on the other side village brothers and sisters

Well the way things are on the west coast with the protesting and stuff in the Tampa area I don't blame him. But now-a-days where does one go to get his or her sanity back?

What's wrong with Tampa? I am not aware of any problems over here, everything is going great? ... We didn't burn down any car dealerships like they did in WI...

Just ignore it Hammy.  He's probably drinking the Kool-Aid and watching the fake news.

well, good luck on your move and thank you for contributing to this place!
But WAIT Did you say WISCONSIN???????? Isnt that the only other State besides New York where add-a-balls know GOTTLIEB ADD-A-BALLS were sold?
Please remember that there are people here in Florida that really want those Wedgeheads! Especially kings&Queens and Dimension.  Especially that Port Charlotte crowd.
 Good luck on your new chapter of life!

Kool aid gets a bad rap! Fact is they drank Wyler drink mix in Jonestown. Kool aid had the psychotic pitcher spokesperson who randomly bursts through perfectly good walls to share its surgary goodness to prediabetic children everywhere.  Oh yeah!!!

Oh yeah! good luck on your move we will keep the light on for when you come back to Florida to retire.  You can come home again just bring back a bunch of ems for us!
Regards

I actually made the pilgrimage from Naples, FL to Madison, WI in 2000. Recently married my wife wanted to live by family. 14 years later we realized that we didn't have to live this way (that is the freezing cold winters, high property taxes, home prices, and income tax) and moved back to the greatest state in the union.

 ;D

All seriousness though best of luck. I don't know if you will be moving near Madison but if so - let me know as I have many connections to great pinballers up there and they have a great league. There is also lots of places to play and you are close to the Pinball mecca of Chicago!
