ZIP – Monday has FLOWN by here at Mission Repair. I looked at the clock when Melanie and Adam (who sit in the office next to mine) turned off their computers and headed out the door.
What?! It’s 5:00pm already? I haven’t even begun my first blog of the day yet. Sheesh I might be losing my touch; I’m going to work on it.
Last weekend we had our Deuce and a Half in the Maple Leaf Festival in Baldwin City, Kansas. It was a brisk Saturday morning as we packed up and headed out to get the rig ready for the mass of 75,000 parade goers that line the streets each October. We had 17 HUGE bags of candy to hand out (we’ve run out before that’s no fun), flipped on some “Vietnam Era” music and had a great time.
Above is a shot of the group (I’m behind the camera) just before the parade started. Left to right that’s Casey, Neal, Martha, Lennie, Jordyn, Michael, Baby Mason, Lexi, Derrick and Dandra in the back of the truck hiding in the camouflage!
Since I couldn’t stand it, I had to post a couple of pics of the cutest baby around. Here’s Derrick and his boy Mason up close sporting his very own custom Mission Repair tshirt! How cool is that!?!
Finally, one more shot with Mason who is ready for some action. Truth be told, he got to ride in a stroller and he actually fell asleep before the parade route was over. It’s good to be a toddler 😉 I’m going to start training him on iPad repairs next week…we’ll see how he does!
Ah, I’m just kidding. The technicians that we employ are all over the age of 18 even though they may act like children sometimes. You know who I’m talking about. Jake.
Well the parade was a lot of work like usual, but the reward is the packed front office all day today. We always meet a ton of new people and customers when we do these parades. It’s just part of the fun here at Mission Repair.
Have a good evening everyone- take care, Ryan
