OK I know it's been awhile since we posted! So here are a few points of interest. In Iqaluit they are doing cold weather testing on a huge plane ( Airbus ) . It looked like it has multi-levels on it! Matt will be going to Iqaluit on Sunday for training with his job and will be leaving me for about a week. I will be giving him a list of "goodies" to bring back with him. The weather has been really good. Been out walking. Pippie ( our dog ) got her hind leg caught in the metal grate we have for outside steps when we first arrived here. It swelled up quite badly and she was chewing on it. Blech! What a mess! So my daily routine has been to wash it with ebson salts, put polysporin on it ( I called my vet in New Brunswick ) and buffered aspirin, and wrapping it with gauze ( that cost $6.00/roll here ) twice a day. I ran out of first aid tape I was using to keep it on and they don't sell it here! And have ran out of the two boxes of gauze!!!! HAHA, and have received a care box from my Mom with Emu oil, which I am now putting on her. Would you believe the swelling has gone down 3/4 of what it was! I am happy because she is nine years old now and really don't want this to be her demise. Ask me if I am looking forward to our three cats ever needing vet care. For all you guys "down south" we don't have any and I think there was rumblings of a vet in Iqaluit. And round trip for me and the dog would be about $1000.00. If it came down to it I wouldn't hesitate. We wanted to also say Hi to all who are visiting our blog! To family and friends in the "south" Our Daughter,The NB Price's, "The 'Cookers"The Nowlan's, The Giles', The Sussex TD Bank Girls (who should be working...hehe) The Ferland's,The Hayes' The Taylor's and the ones I missed, we thank you for your support. We are loving it here, and enjoying all new experiences were are having. And to Master Corporal Price we will pray for your safe tour in Afghanistan, we love you! We will post new pics when we get more. Here is one of the Moon at Noon time just after New Years.
