The day started with a C-17 flying in passengers and cargo. Among the cargo was mail, and among the mail was the most delightful surprise. Mrs. Shuwarger's Fifth Grade Class sent me Halloween cards that they made themselves. To the Class: Thank you so much for the cards! You are very creative and made great cards. I loved the animal pictures and the funny sayings inside. I also like the way some of you cut out your cards. They brightened up my day and bring smiles to everyone who visits the clinic here at McMurdo.
Last night was the annual Halloween Party at McMurdo. The party is so well known that it is hard to find an individual's blog or written account that doesn't mention it at some point. You can click here to see a gallery of photos from this year's party.
Lori and Barbie, our radiology technician and physician assistant, have drawn and colored a huge turkey. It is posted on the clinic wall next to the children's cards. The turkey is named "Mr. South Pole Tree" and he asks everyone to write on him all the things for which they are thankful. I am thankful for family, friends and the opportunity to work with a fine group of professionals in this wonderful place called "Antarctica".
