1.21 Gigawatts at lunch today!

Yes, I went out for Mexican food today at one of my favorite restaurants, Chapalas. Awesome cheese dip and salsa. Yummy!

I pulled around the building looking for a parking space and what appeared before my eyes? Doc. Brown’s time machine. Yup, it was there and just arrived back from 1985!

The kinda strange and ironic part about it is, that, I just bought the movie “Back to the Future” and watched it with my son Casey (this was BEFORE we went the the Renaissance festival!) this weekend. He’s 12 and it was his first time seeing it. I don’t know how I’ve managed to go 12 years without seeing the movie with him but now he’s hooked!! We will most certainly look on eBay for a used copy of the second and third versions soon. He loved it as I do.

I thought that the pics were worth a quick blog. Good luck Marty!

Hear ye, hear ye…KC Renaissance Festival was in town!

Ah yes, who doesn’t like to watch live jousting while eating a smoked turkey leg? I took my kids to the Kansas City Renaissance Festival yesterday and we did just that!! This was my very FIRST Renaissance Festival. . .and what an experience. This gathering in Kansas City is absolutely HUGE and it took several hours just to make an attempt to see it all. We stopped at many booths and shot arrows, went through a giant maze, and even tried to “ring the bell”. You know, a “strongman” competition. Here’s my son Casey taking a try:


Admittedly, I also tried, but failed. I was about a foot short of the bell, and I feel somewhat accomplished, but I’m feeling a little strained this morning. Yup I have a little bit of a sore back and shoulders. OK, well now I know that I need to stretch a little bit before I go out and toss around a very large hammer in public 😉

OK, we are in the NEW building here at Mission Repair! Our move went smoothly. Almost too easy. We are in, the T1 lines are installed, the phones are ringing, and we are in business just as planned. It’s not always something so complicated in life goes so well. . .I will count my blessings! The building is beautiful and accommodating, I can’t wait to put on the finishing touches.
