David and I have been officially quarantined by our daughter for five weeks.  No one, but the home health nurse, has been in our house during that time.  There have been a few people here who stayed at a distance outside.  I feel like we will self-quarantine for a while when the rules loosen us.  So far, so good!  Thank-you, God!
