Are you a baseball fan?

Hello friends-

If you’ve ever read any of my blogs, you might notice that I don’t talk much about a few topics.

Politics. I don’t talk about em, unless it’s a neutral discussion and even then it’s extremely rare.

Religion. Nope, just won’t do it. I respect everyone’s opinion and personal beliefs, but this blog isn’t where you’ll hear my opinion on the matter. In fact, I debated on whether or not to even type the word “religion” if that tells you anything.

Sports. This is almost as bad as my first two. I don’t pick sides and if I ever talk about sports it’s in a general manner. In fact, unless you know me well, you have no idea what sports teams I like or root for anyhow!


With that being said, it’s pretty hard to not talk about to Kansas City Royals here at the office today. It’s a major topic of conversation and I’m glad that this team is breaking some long-standing dry spells. However I feel for the Angels whose season is over; it’s not a good feeling when you get so close but can’t move on.

I can vouch for Kansas City fans that have been waiting a lifetime (in some cases) to get into the playoffs, and I think that their consistency in the last 4 games has been the key to their success so far. If they keep it up, they might make a bigger statement soon.

Another thing that you might not know about me, is that I’m not originally from the Kansas City area. I moved out here as a single father to do what I do best, and that’s ELECTRONICS REPAIRS. I’ve been here since 2001 and a short 13 years later, still in business, and still supporting Kansas City and all that the area strives for. Congrats to the Kansas City Royals and the Baltimore Orioles for winner yesterday! Today brings us with another couple of games, and I’m excited to see the outcome.

Have a great day, Ryan

Is this a sign Halloween is coming early?

Hello everyone, good afternoon!

It’s been a busy day here at Mission Repair, I’m just now getting a chance to sit down a whip out a quick blog before I have to escape to another department for a while;

I started a different “Halloween” themed blog earlier in the day, but scratched it for this post. I arrived back into the office today after a few errands on the road, only to see my employees panic stricken from their recent encounter with a spider.

That’s right…a spider in the office.

It’s interesting to see 25 grown adults all riled up about this creature, so I demanded to see some evidence. Melanie was able to snap this picture which lacks scale, but that’s a standard filing cabinet in the background:


Please note that this is not “photoshopped” or edited in any way…but it is from a distance because this was as close to the creature as she would get. All votes are in that it’s a Wolf Spider pretty common to the Midwest.

I heard “it’s as big as my hand” and even reports from other employees that made it sound as big as a Frisbee. Judging from the picture, it was very big.

Was this fella helping us decorate for Halloween? Maybe spin a few webs in the corner for ambiance? We’re not sure, but Matthew saved the day by removing the beast from the office. I love Halloween, and I started getting my decorations out at the house but this is going a bit too far!!

I’ll be back soon, Ryan
