Slip N’ Slide Time!

Hello M:R Nation –

It’s now June and with this month comes some pretty hot/humid weather. We pretty much skipped Spring here in the Kansas City are and went straight to summer as we do every year, but it just happened so fast this time around. Yesterday, the first day of June, kept true to it’s form and brought a humid 85 degree day. YUCK! If you have kids, you know the dilemma here.  We can’t possible stay inside and relax for a whole 24 hours, but it’s not going to be an enjoyable day outside either. So what does this dad do? Breaks out the Slip N’ Slide!

You remember this from your childhood, don’t you? If not, allow me to give you a frightening description. You basically spread out a very long trash bag in your back yard, spray it with water and allow your children to launch themselves at full blast, head first into the ground. All while hoping they actuality slide and not jab themselves with a stray rock. Sounds fun, right?  Hey, its a right of passage for every child and who am I to deny my children of this? Needless to say, we had hours of fun. However, while I was watching them enjoying this death defying piece of equipment, I kind of got the itch to try it out…

Luckily, I didn’t go through with it. I can’t imagine how I would feel right now, if I actually barreled myself down that “slide”. This thing was made for a 5 year old for a reason my wife told me, and I am so thankful I listened to her:-)

Have any fun plans for the summer? We’d love to hear about it! Email your plans to coupons@missionrepair.com and receive a 14% coupon code! Just know, we might take your plans and try them out for ourselves!

Cheers, Troy

First Day Of Summer Special!

Hello M:R Nation –

I come to you today with split emotions. My San Antonio Spurs were defeated last night in the epic game 7 of the NBA finals. It is funny how many people in the office suddenly became Miami Heat fans once they knew of my affection for the Spurs. I hosted Lennie, our shipping/receiving manager and aforementioned “Miami Heat fan” for a nice pizza and a couple of adult beverages. We had a great time and were able to discuss some of Mission Repairs big plans for the summer. Which brings me to the happy emotion that I am experiencing. Today is the first day of Summer!

Summer solstice

Sure, school has been dismissed for weeks now, but Summer doesn’t officially begin until the Summer solstice which usually hits around June 20th-21st. The Summer solstice occurs when the tilt of a planet’s semi-axis, in either the northern or the southern hemisphere, is most inclined toward the star (sun) that it orbits. Earth’s maximum axial tilt toward the sun is 23° 26′. What does this mean? It means for a long and sunny day. It also means the hotdogs, hamburger, swimming pools, beer, bugs and so much more!

So to celebrate this under appreciated day, we at Mission Repair have decided to release a 15% coupon that will last until Sunday night! Thats right, we are saving you more money and giving everyone 15% off your entire purchase! Order that Touch 4 screen repair that you have been putting off, or that iPad 2 glass that your toddler unceremoniously walked across yesterday.

The coupon code to use at checkout, over the phone or in person is summer13. This will last until Midnight on 6/23/13, so get those repair started asap!

Cheers, Troy
