Hi everyone. I hope you are doing fine. So far, we are well.Please take all precautions to Stay safe. I am trying to fin 1/4 inch elastic. My husband works for the city and in janitorial for city parks and our lakefront. He has been on vacation but goes back Thursday, so I have been scrambling. He will be 65 and has copd and of course us living in Florida, he deals with a lot of homeless people. They wash their bodies and clothes in the restrooms. He finds a lot of beer cans and needles. It is really scary. Peace and light to you all.

This is the revised list. M-fay dropped for this month because she is tied down to do the quarantine. I made masks for my daughters 3 stores employees. I have been working on a lot to send to southern Florida for a friend who is a nurse. I will post names in a couple days. See ya soon.

Here in Western Australia we are not allowed to leave our shire boundries . I can walk to my local post office but M-fay who does not have a local post office can't go to another shire to find a post office . Is this happening in USA as well?
