Monday’s Musings…

Well that’s it apparently the world has gone crazy and each country has closed itself off from the rest of the world. Pretty easy for us Aussies and Kiwis but it does make for interesting times. I am still flying to Queensland, but only because I really want to see my daughter more than anything…
