Goin' Up on a Tuesday
We're going to stick mostly to Santa Trai this time, for reasons (well, reason) you'll see below. The book says that 300 words is the magic number for company blog posts or you guys will get bored and stop reading. We always do a lot of pictures which hopefully keep your interest and allow us to sometimes push it on word count a little (this one clocks in at a fairly tight 325, if you want to know).

Closest to the door: our forklift now has a friend.
Sorry if you have to be back at work today. So do I, clearly,
