Top Ten with Carina Jane
Favorite movie/actor/actress? Oh, I suppose it’d be Bette Davis. It’s all in the eyes, see? Ha ha!
Favorite song/singer? You ever hear Ethel Waters singing “Stormy Weather”? Ooh-ee! Always reminds me of the storms we get out here on the coast. A little melancholy, but that’s all right.
Favorite place you would love to visit? Are you kidding? Anywhere! And I mean it. I been stuck in this tiny little town all my life. I’ve been out to the next town over like three or four times. Damn shame, really.
One item you cannot live without? Well, since not a day goes by when I’m not shoveling manure out in the barn, I’d probably go ahead and say my trusty shovel. That’s kinda sad, isn’t it?
Who would you like to meet? (dead or alive) I wish I’d met Morgan’s mother Sarah Graves. He’s told me so much about her. And while I’ve seen her ghost from time to time, I would have preferred the real woman for obvious reasons.
Favorite hobby? I rather like taking my horse Keebee out for a ride in the fields. She’s got a fair step and solid gallop.
Guilty pleasure? Honestly? Doing absolutely nothing. Just laying around, staring at the ocean or something. That’d be my dream day. Too bad it’s never once happened.
Favorite author and/book? Oh, pish. I have no idea. Who has time to read nowadays? Tell you what: you muck out the stalls today and I’ll sit around and read awhile. That work?
Do you collect anything? My little sister does. Little trinkets and such. Me? Not so much.
Favorite color? Oh, I suppose it’d be yellow. One of the only compliments my pa ever gave me was when ma made me a bright yellow dress for church one year. He said I looked rather pretty in it. Never forgot it, but he’s never said anything like that since.
