Tara's Hats

Tara wears many hats.

Writer. Book reviewer. 
Poet and Blogger Extraordinaire.

But the Bartholomew Cubbins* hat I value most is the one I call Friend.

She tagged me and gave me questions to answer.

What is the first movie you went to without a chaperone?
The Tramp in 1915 with Charlie Chaplin**

Where/Did you go to college?
My hometown, the excellent Northwest Missouri State University

What is your favorite spice?
For sweet, cinnamon. For beef, marjoram. Pork and chicken equals sage.

What is your favorite hair/eye color combination?
Auburn hair and jade green eyes.

Do your initials spell anything?
Nope but I’ve used the designation ‘CD’ since high school

What is your favorite animal? (be specific)
Horse. I’ve been horse-crazy since I was two years old and could say, ‘horey’.

What is the character trait you admire most in a person?
The reluctant hero.

What are you afraid of losing when you get older?
My judgment.

What is your favorite character's name that you chose?

Describe your favorite weather in a sentence - make us feel it!
On a spring day, with the sun kissing the horizon, the scent of new growth and cooling rocks.

Describe your favorite dessert - how does it taste?
Fresh strawberries just picked. Two-egg cake baked and cooled. A dollop of sweet whipped cream on top. It tastes of spring and the first days of summer. And I know watermelon cannot be far behind.

**just kidding. I watched movies unchaperoned as a six year old while my mom got groceries. In those days of yesteryear, it was safe.


  1. You have some sensible answers! I remember my brother and I going to the theater by ourselves all the time. Back then, it was safe.

    1. In small towns at a time when people did not tolerate strangers who act suspicious, going alone to a movie theater was a great babysitter. Air conditioned, candy bars, and a movie. Can't beat that.

  2. I'll have a piece of that cake :)

    1. Two egg or one egg cakes are the BEST STUFF EVER. Great for cobbler, strawberry short cake, or, um, just cake.

      And a great delivery system for buttercream frosting.

  3. you are so sweeeet! sweeter than the short cake sounds!
    love your answers and thanks for making my day =)

  4. Mmm, now I want some cake. Great answers!

  5. Nice to meet you. Good luck with A-Z. I look forward to your posts.

  6. You know... I can't remember the first movie I went to, but I love your answers. I've never had a nickname either, and I adore strawberries. AND auburn hair + green eyes. All good stuff~ :o) <3


Your Turn. Don't Be Shy
