Ask The Park Wife

I hit my 100th post a few days ago and did not know the trend that you are supposed to post 100 things about yourself to celebrate. I am not too trendy these days, unless you count those new hip pants I bought at Old Navy a while back. And, I think those are already out of style.

Since I have always been a little different (even though growing up I wanted to be just like all the other girls), rather than posting 100 things about me, I am going to open up The Park Wife Manual on Life and answer your questions.

How do you become a Park Ranger or more importantly how do you marry a Park Ranger? What is the difference in The Park Wife's chicken and the chicken at the store? How does The Park Wife respond when a buckaroo throws her an attitude? How oftern do I get my haircut? You know, all the life-changing important things you always wanted to know but were afraid to ask. O.K., I might be flattering myself, but it's my 100 post party so just indulge me please.

So, think hard and nothing is off limits.... well, except if I feel attacked, the answer is unflattering, or it has yet to be written in The Park Wife's Manual on Life and I can't think of an appropriate answer. Hey, I have 5 brothers so I learned to set boundaries early, right after I got shot with the BB gun.

Happy 106th post to me!
The Park Wife

Congratulations on your 100th post. I don't have any questions, but just wanted to mention if someone asks a question you don't want to answer, you can do what Chelsea Clinton did to the person who asked her about Monica. Just politely tell them it's none of their business.

I was totally impressed with her.

How do you take your coffee? (Assuming you drink coffee, which I think you may, but if you don't, then replace the word coffee with tea, and if you don't drink tea, just let me know if you want lemon in your water or not)
PS- Can I come back and ask more questions once I have another cup of coffee?

Hmmmm let me think, ok here are a couple.

1. How long have you and The Park Ranger been together?

2. How are you going to adjust not living on the park when you move?

3. Is it just you and five brothers, or are there more. (There are six of us, 5 girls 1 boy)

4. Does your toilet paper hang over or under.

I'm curious what part of the country your "Park" is located in? In your blog you have alluded to Memphis and Mississippi - and I'm from Memphis, currently living in Hernando MS so I wondered if you are in my area of the country still.

In the Park service do you get transferred from park to park? I think your boys have such and amazing and interesting way to grow up - well your little buckeroos and PW's punks. What wonderful childhoods they will be able to look back on.

How did you and Big Buckaroo meet? You've mentioned a God-guided love story before and I am curious.

What did you do before you became the Park Wife?

I probably have more questions but they've all eluded me...(being this is a post for questions)...but that the way things go, I guess.

Thanks!

Hmmmm...the questions I could ask:) Although I know your opinion on a lot of them. Maybe just a question about life (who else has been there for me for the entire time I've been out on my own;) Ok, so why exactly do they call it morning sickness? (You can research that and get back to me because it is definitely NOT limited to AM hours...) Really, just wanted to say I've loved reading all 100 posts, definitely a part of my daily routine!

How long did you date BIg Buckaroo before you married him?

When you married, were you both attending church like you do now?

Do you plan to have a Little Buckaroo-ette some day??

The BB gun thing make me snort in a rather unflattering way.

Happy 106th post. Although I can't think of a question right now I will be eager to read more about you.

Your 100th post is a big day. How did you and your park ranger meet? Was it difficult to move outside the city confines? (It was for me at first.) What do you miss most?~~Dee
