Having had "Hope" for breakfast, I wholeheartedly agree...

But her sisters Faith and Charity showed me there were better tasting fish in the sea...

So... what is the herd thinking? I just found out that tomorrow at work we are all getting "official letters" for our pickups stating that we are essential agricultural/transportation employees for the possibility of checkpoints or random stops. Is this going to get that serious?

Well guys, long story short. One of our drivers informed us today that his wife is a nurse and got put in quarantine yesterday. We told him not to come to work tomorrow. We have been washing hands, hand sanitizer and disinfecting wipes everywhere. Needless to say, I'm a little nervous. I will not be coming to the shoot. I'll miss you guys but with the above story, if I got infected i don't want to be around anyone.

We have canceled the upcoming work weekend, and the shoot weekend is up in the air at the moment depending on whether our (ahem) governor decides to extend his stay at home order.
