Hoping that you and Lezli and all of your extended family remain well and strong and sane.
Here's our newest published book -- if you want to read about an alternate reality -- Fly Fishing!
Yes she is getting plenty of virtual hugs and support from us and we are coping pretty well with the whole situation.
Best wishes to you and Megan and your nearest and dearest, stay safe and keep smiling !

Where does their son live? Sydney or Melbourne? or ?? The two places most densely populated, so with the most cases..... including a dozen and a half who died at an age care home.
Still, it is now more than 100 days since the first case arrived in the country - from the Diamond Princess, if I recall correctly - and today we had the 98th death. The bulk of those can be traced back to cruise ships.
Slowly starting the opening up. Today, golf, fishing, hiking (but not camping) have been allowed for the first time in more than two months. Visits to family and friends - 5 at a time max. - meeting up with friends up to 10 in a group, outdoors, keeping physical distancing in place. By the end of this month all children should be back at school. I think my grandchildren are due to go back 26th May.
It's all looking good, but there is one caveat, any more outbreaks or clusters, especially at schools, will see all these wound back again..
And boy have I got a lot of knitting done! My local city council has set up a morning coffee and a chat each day. We all make a cuppa, and ring in on our phones and have a chat with those we have not seen for weeks. They have also set up quizz sessions a couple of times a week, by all phoning in; and bingo. Another one in which I do not partake is an exercise session over the phone. No smart phones required, not even a mobile, as many seniors do not have mobile phones. As well as that I get weekly calls from them asking how I am going, and do I have any needs.
Alls well, and I am well. Hope this finds everyone else the same way.
p.s. Almost forgot - I can now get to and plan my next trip for the southern hemisphere spring....... to New Zealand. Both countries are working on getting tourism between them up and running again.
Lack of traveling is hitting a lot of people. My son, in his 30’s loves traveling and it just got to him as he’s had two events canceled so far and then we found out a family wedding in the LA area is now canceled over Labor Day. I’m just as glad because of the air travel to get there. As my niece said, she just wants it to be a good time and not have to worry if she’s killing a family member.
I think you're right. Much more likley to have been in Sydney. Sounds like he may be in country NSW, or QLD. I dsoubt there is any wine growing areas in NT, but there is lots in country NSW. Regular international travel may be a while off yet. Heard someone on the radio say to think of another twelve months or more.
Hope your family stays well. Staying apart keeps us together.
