The advantages of being a self-diagnosed hypochondriac during a pandemic…

None that I can think of at the moment. Here’s a funny post that describes me to a tee… well, almost.

Stay at home and self-quarantine – that’s a normal day for me. Wash your hands frequently – how many times beyond fifty a day is considered excessive?

Isolation can be a desperate time for many – call friends frequently and check on the family.

All kidding aside, please take care of yourselves and remember to check frequently on family and friends – during stressful times like this, a person’s mental wellness is important too.

Have a wonderful day and stay safe! – Chris

One of my favorite images from our many trips to The Magic Kingdom. We used to refer to the castle as ‘Cindy’s House’.

Seldom seen view of Cindy’s house. Where did all the people go?
