Is it baseball season already?

Hello there!

I’ve been out of the office for a few days on some personal R&R, and am just now getting back into the swing of these here at my home office.  Yes, I’ll get a chance to sneak in and get some repairs done this evening (yes, even the boss still does a few repairs from time to time) but for now I’m going to get some much needed writing done because so many of you have been asking!

Firstly, how did you enjoy the Super Bowl?  I’m sure that most Bronco fans thought it was spectacular; but I’ve heard from many “non-Bronco” fans that the Super Bowl was “terrible” or “Our team would have won if they were in it” or “Peyton Manning didn’t do anything”.

Well, the fact of the matter is that Denver stepped up as a team and did what they intended to do:  Win on Sunday.  So those that didn’t enjoy the game can just start to look forward to baseball season, right?

If you live in Kansas City and if you like baseball, then you must be gearing up for the 2016 season.  Coming off of the World Series makes things seem bit brighter for them this year.  The defending champs are ready to go (so I hear).

Well, even though the groundhog predicted an early Spring, if you step outside today here in my home town of Spring Hill, Kansas it’s only in the high-twenties Fahrenheit…it’s not time to grab your baseball glove and hit the practice fields yet.  We have a few months to go.

So what should we do this Sunday?  There’s no football on, so it looks like I’ll be caching up on some TV.  What a life.

I’ll be back soon with some Mission Repair info…Ryan

Your order has shipped!

“Thank you!!! You guys rock.”

The single line customer testimonal we received from our customer, Peter, when he got his email that his iPad was shipping back to him.

This brings up a great point that I don’t talk about too much…but monthly we repair thousands of devices for customers and all goes to plan. Our process works, our customers are happy for it, and we get to repair/service another day.

Thank you Peter for that awesome email. That kind of thing makes the world a better place. It was a great start to my day…TGIF!

Take care, Ryan

Bobcat. Or something else?

Hello again blog readers-

Just one more quick blog today because I’ve been wracking my brain trying to figure this picture out. Let’s me give you some back story:

I live in Spring Hill, Kansas. It’s a small town, with no stop lights, and about 3,000 people. Don’t let that “small town” story fool you though – I’m from the Bay Area, worked in Oakland, San Leandro, Concord, Fremont and lived in the same areas for most of my life. But the last decade I’ve spent in a little town and loving it.

I’ve gotten used to the feel and the quietness. I live at the end of a road – which backs up to some “wilderness” and a pond. I have a couple of dogs that I like to spend time with out there and we can hear the coyotes at night.

Finally, I keep a couple of “game” cameras set up in my yard, firstly for security so I can see who’s coming and going, but also to see what kind of animals might be sniffing around. Two nights ago, my camera caught this picture at 3:54am, you can click on it to get a bigger image:

It only takes a picture when it detects movement. And if you look in the center, almost all the way to the bottom of the picture, you’ll see a creature walking up my driveway from the street. That’s my neighbor’s house that you see in the background…the wilderness is behind the camera.

Do you see it? What is that? It’s not a house cat. NO WAY. It’s almost as big as the entire width of the sidewalk. It’s not a dog, it definitely looks “feline”. It’s got to be a bobcat, right?

I spend a lot of time outside and in the wild, and rarely have a seen one of these guys roaming the countryside. They are nocturnal, and fierce carnivores known to take down prey larger than them. So it gets me thinking, what else is out there? I’ll post more pics as I get them, I’m hoping to ge a shot of the “Great North Western Spring Hill Sasquatch” some day. If I get that, I’ll let you know!

On a business note at Mission Repair, we’ve got a fantastic newsletter that will be delivered here shortly with some amazing deals. If you’re not already signed up, you can do so here!

Thanks, talk to you again soon. Ryan
