This is my backyard...


And First Air & Canadian North fly over my house, twice a day, everyday, except Saturday and Sunday. And everyday, Twice a day, except Saturday and Sunday, it sounds like they are going to land in my kitchen. Tallinn howls, the dishes rattle, the plane zooms by. I don't mind however, because it's the glorious, sweet, sweet sound of fresh mail, making it's way home to me.

That's a great shot. Even though we live close to an airport I have never heard one.

Hey there Jen! So glad you found our little blog! I wish you lived closer...I'd have come over and ate coconut and muffin batter with you! I would have brought over some raw cookie dough and we would have been set!! Me and my friend "Fatty Patty" were both a little down last night too. There must have been something in the air! Even as far North as you are!
As far as this loosing weight thing goes...WE can do it!!! Tomorrow is another day!
Keep in touch!

Twice a day?

Pansy.

We live next to the airport in Iqaluit, and by next to, I mean on top of.

Twice an hour, think Elwood's apartment in The Blues Brothers. It comes so often you don't even notice.

Sure only twice a day, but I bet you money we live closer to the runway then you do. NAH NAH NAH NA NA :P

However I am sure it would be worse to live next to the busier Iqaluit airport.

Jen....

For real, unless you are living in the Municipal Garage in Dorset, I do live closer to the airport than you :)

KOTN, but that's where I get you, I said I live closer to the runway, not the airport. Like planes landing directly on my house, I live right at the end of the run way. Like sitting in the flight tower being buzzed by Tom Cruise in Top Gun lol.
