Are you a spouse new to the military? Are you new to San Antonio? Maybe you have been around for a while but haven’t had the time to get involved with other spouses.
Are you concerned about a current or future deployment? Are you looking for opportunities to serve your community? Perhaps you need some adult conversation, yet an opportunity for the children to play and meet friends. Did you just leave your best friend or your family at the last duty station?
We have something for you:

What book have you read the most times? How many times have you read it?
A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens. I was born in December and when I was growing up, the George C. Scott movie version was always shown on TV around my birthday so I formed a connection to the story. Then in 8th grade English class, the book was an assigned read and I couldn’t believe how cleverly written and laugh-out-loud funny it was! Now I read it every year around the holidays and so does my husband. During his deployments, we’ll read it at the same time so we can share it together – even if it is from far away. I hardly ever re-read a book but I’ll never grow tired of Scrooge!
Beer or wine? Wine.
Precisely how much wood would a woodchuck chuck if a woodchuck could chuck wood?
I’m a librarian so I researched this question. There are reports online that in an article from the Wall Street Journal, “New York state wildlife expert” Richard Thomas said a woodchuck could chuck 6.5 pounds of wood or dirt a day. However, I was unable to locate a reputable citation in the whole 3 minutes I spent researching the question.

What activity is on the top of your San Antonio bucket list?
I’d really like to take a boat ride down the Riverwalk to see the holiday lights.
Do you have any superstitions? If so, describe one.
I have a necklace given to me by a friend over 25 years ago that symbolizes strength and empowerment. I have worn it to every job interview since then.
What is the funniest movie of all time? Super Troopers!
What was the best gift you ever received?
Platinum. In the form of a stent that opened an artery in my heart and saved my life in February 2013. I have a lot to be thankful for this year!
Introvert or extrovert? Extrovert.
What is the best part about being a military spouse?
Getting to meet great, interesting people while moving around!
