Welcome to the CablesAndKits CEO Update email. Read more about this email by scrolling to the very bottom.
I made it home! I was nearing the house around 7pm I texted the wife before I got to the driveway and her and the girls (4 and 7) were waiting in the yard. I got parked and the girls ran over. I knelt down to give them hugs and kisses … BARELY got any, and they about knocked me down to get in the door of the RV!
They loved the thing and were about to pass out of excitement over their bunk beds – each with a shelf and it’s own TV/DVD player. We had to nearly pry them out of them to go eat dinner. All they could talk about was “can we sleep in it??”. I think there is no way around a front yard camping trip this weekend, haha!
As I mentioned before, we already have a camping trip planned in a couple weeks, and we have another set of friends we are already starting a conversation with about going somewhere too.
In addition to that, while this Motorhome is in near perfect shape to be 10 years old, I have a handful of things I would like to do to it like replacing the radio and speakers, some maintenance items, and minor repairs. I look forward to the projects.
Now that I am home, I cannot wait to get on the road again! Let the fun begin!
I don’t know if it’s true, but I heard …
There is a town in Nebraska called Monowi with a population of one. The only resident is a woman who is the Mayor, Bartender and Librarian.

From Joe, our friendly Safety Supplies Product Marketer:
Happy Friday, we made it! Even though it’s the end of the week I still have some new products for you guys! First, with how much everyone loves 3M masks I’ve got a smaller quantity of a new style live on the site! We now have the 3M 8210Plus Model! These are in the warehouse and will be received into our system first thing tomorrow!
The next new product is something a little different. A new Fingertip Pulse Oximeter is now available! This measures your Pulse Oxygen Saturation, Blood Oxygen Saturation, as well as your heart beats per minute! This is perfect if you’re working out and would like to monitor your body’s oxygen levels/BPM but it’s also perfect for monitoring something along the lines of asthma or shortness of breath from a various number of illnesses including COVID.
Last but not least, our 3.38 oz squeeze tube of hand sanitizer has seen another price decrease on top of their current sale price! This gel seems to be a customer favorite and leaves your hands feeling 10x better than before you sanitize them, all thanks to the vitamin E! Both the individual tubes and the case quantity saw these price updates!
Now enjoy this 3 day weekend! I know I will!
