Ringing and Singing in the Rain with Sharon Tara

Many of us follow and comment regularly on the blog posts of members whose style appeals to us. On occasions we also take up the phone and reach out to put a voice to the writings.

I caught Sharon at a weak moment, as she was just saying goodbye to her 4 grandchildren after having spent the day chasing after them around the house. Quality bonding time with the grand babies with the reward that they go home to their parents.

Ringing and Singing in the Rain with Sharon Tara

Even after identifying myself, she still mistook me for a telemarketer but had the patience to pause before hanging up n me. Then the light went on and she knew who was calling.  All day with 4 grandchildren can do that to a person.

We talked about blogging and the personalities of some of our commonly followed Rainers. Of course there was some conversation about grandchildren, and our spouses. Sharon set here cap for her husband while working as a sandwich maker at a deli. She gave him extra meat and he was trapped. Men are suckers for a woman that knows how to slice meat.

Sharon is a stager on Portsmouth, New Hampshire. Like myself, she had attended the Boston RainCamp, but regretted that she went with some people that were anxious to leave there early so she didn't have as much opportunity to meet some of the others that were also in attendance.

We talked about the possibility of meeting in person some day. Whether it's at a Meet-up or even a revived RainCamp.

Your recap of our conversation made me laugh Ed. You either have an amazing memory or are a master of shorthand and took some great notes. Impressive either way!

I am so grateful that I didn't resort to hanging up on you before I realized who you were. So many "spam" calls on a daily basis make it hard to be patient and polite sometimes. At least I wasn't rude! LOL

Thank you for "choosing" me and making the call. It was wonderful speaking with you and getting to know you better!

I love Sharon's posts and a woman who knows how to slice meat has men at her mercy. Love your stories and your post.

Good Morning, Ed Silva - What an enjoyable read! I felt like I was watching a 60 second Youtube of Sharon Tara answering the phone and deciding whether or not she'd take your call. I was laughing and smiling all the way until the end. You both have history since the days of Boston RainCamp. Oh, how I wish Bob Stewart would bring back the good old days.

Ed, you write a good story!!!

Thanks for sharing your conversation with Tara. I've yet to make contact with my individual. I'm starting to think they are avoiding me! ;)
