Happy Cinco de Mayo

Posted by Jeff Kirchner on May 5, 2020 4:02:09 PM

It is an odd day, a rare day.

Can you remember the last time May 5th landed on a Tuesday?

May 5 is the 125th day of the year (126th in leap years) in the Gregorian calendar.

The year was 2015  (According to WikiPedia).

April seemed years long this year, and March as well for that matter. Didn't have to decide on where to eat for Valentine's day. Missed out on  St. Patrick's day festivities with friends.  The only bright spot was the dreaded tax day, April 15th, has been moved to July.

We've reached the mid-point of spring for us in the Northern Hemisphere. 240 days left of 2020.

We are just glad to be working still. Things have really slowed down though. (Spring cleaning has commenced!) Did you know in almost 35 years of business, we have never had to lay off people? We've definitely had some slim years, and a few losing years.

You could say that we just love to sell metal, and that we care about our small family of employees.
