OK, in the not to distant future I envision a time where we have supplied al of the PPE devices that we can make for the medical and other front line heroes out there and they start to run in the other direction like the friends of a gardener that grows squash <GRIN>.

At least that is my dream at this point.

Don't stop making the ear savers because there is another community that can use them. I gave a few to a friend that lives in a retirement community and explained what they are for. She said that several of her neighbors that wear hearing aids have a problem wearing the masks and being able to carry ion a conversation or hearing important communications because the elastic bands deform the ear canal to the point that the hearing aids are useless.

That said, once you have saturated the first responders and grocery clerks, get in touch with your local senior center and see if they can use a few.

Stay upwind and maintain separation,

That's exactly right. I'm still supplying nurses, but I've also started supplying flight attendants.

Default Huge Kudo's & Thank You to Bobby Lucas

Huge Thank you to Bobby Lucas and all you "smarter than I with many talents" VAF people using your 3D machines to provide mask straps for our nurses.

I PM'd Bobby and he sent to me, (for our 24 year old ICU-RN daughter) 27 various really cool, "Wonder Woman, Superman, Nurse heart/heart beat symbol" mask straps, which I gave to her and she is giving out to other COVID-19 RN and hospital front line health care workers in the hospital. Our daughter is the ventalitor specialist ICU-RN for our COVID-19 patients.

Our prayers and stay safe go out to all our health care professionals.

Our thanks go out to the VAF community using 3D printers and helping in all the ways you do.

Special Thank you Bobby Lucas.

Thank you so much.
