There have been people coming to see the house almost every day so I've been off the computer for quite awhile. Sorry I have missed some of your posts.
Well, my daughter Christine came back from Northern BC Sunday night. She had a job as medic. This job wasn't as bad as the one in January because the weather was good - no blizzards. She did have to drive two and a half hours there and back each day; so including the driving she worked 17 hours a day.
She said she saw a large herd of deer and asked her friend if it was a "deer farm". Her friend just laughed at her. Christine isn't used to seeing hundreds of deer all together in one place. Her main source of entertainment was listening to the truckers on the CB radio. They are continually yelling and swearing at each other about how they drive, but they also visit and talk about their families.
There were no accidents or emergencies - just hours of waiting for them! But she takes books and computer games with her. The guys always like her. One man brought her licorice every day and she could have had dinner with a worker who had no top teeth. She didn't have time though.
She said most men who work up north are missing teeth. She isn't sure why. There is probably a lack of dentists or something. Maybe it's because there is usually only deer and moose around to see you.
