Free Book Friday: “Are You Crazy??”


And then there was Jill’s house in the Sierras several hours outside San Francisco. (Her house is gorgeous, by the way!) I suggested trying to bait a bear after dinner with the chicken drippings. Did she let me? Guess! One winner, who guesses correctly, will be chosen at random for their autographed pick from my contemporary backlist! :mrgreen:

P.S. Go see Jill’s blog Saturday for another post about my visit and another contest!


  1. Carol says:

    I say Yes! :yes: Jill is a lot of fun and would want her friend to see a bear! πŸ˜†

  2. Cheryl S. says:

    Well, sure she did. Jill’s a fun lady. And, wow! Jill’s house IS beautiful. :yes:

  3. Minna says:

    I also say yes.

  4. Marcy says:

    Of course she did! LOL They show up whether she baits them or not! :rotfl:

  5. Jill says:

    I should point out that Suzanne cooked the dinner in its entirety while I was at basketball practice. And it was lovely to come home to a cooked meal. I’ve decided I need a wife . . .

  6. Lori H says:

    Of course she said yes!!

  7. Angie says:

    I’m going to say “no” for the same reason Marcy said yes….
    They just seem to show up regardless! πŸ˜†

  8. Maureen says:

    I say yes also.

  9. Fannie M Wiggins says:

    I say yes. Seems to be something those two crazy ladies would do. What a sensational house. I would love to live in it myself. I am sure Jill would not have a problem finding someone to cook for her. All she has to do is put the word out and the offers will come pouring in. :rotfl: Good luck Jill. Have a great day and HUGS to all.:love:

  10. Jennifer Y. says:


  11. Ashley says:

    Yup. definitely. She loves her bears.

  12. Estella Kissell says:

    Yes, definitely.

  13. Cindi says:

    Being a frequent visitor to Yosemite, and living only a couple of hours from S.F. myself I am going to bet she told you “Hell No” :thumbsdown: *laughs* I hope you had a great time anyway.


  14. Melissa McClone says:

    I’m guessing no. Just because bears are a huge hassle to deal with if they decide to hang out.

  15. Loreth Anne White says:

    Ditto Cindi :).
    And ditto Jill on the wife!!!

  16. Loreth Anne White says:

    Oops, didn’t mean to enter the contest, Suzanne — was just visiting :lol:. Can you say procrastination?? ‘Kay … back to my own bears now ….

  17. Laurie says:

    I’m saying that yes, Jill would allow bear bait, they seem to keep coming back regardless.

  18. Lia says:

    I’m going to guess no because she wouldn’t want a bear hanging around her property.

  19. catslady says:

    I’m saying yes because she wouldn’t want to disappoint her friend πŸ™‚

  20. Marty says:

    Um, yeah. And if she didn’t…she should have :thumbsup:

  21. Mechele Armstrong says:

    Jill’s house is beautiful.

    I’m going to say no cause I know she’s not liking the bear.

  22. Danica/Dream says:

    I am officially jealous.

    Jill’s house IS lovely, and anytime you want to come be MY wife, there’s a place in Colorado waiting for you. πŸ™‚

    And I’m going to give Jill a little credit for common sense-I think she said no.

  23. TeresaH says:

    Oh wow, Jill’s house is beautiful!!! I’m betting she said no too, why encourage the bears to hang out…

  24. Robyn says:

    I say no. The bears probably come often enough.

  25. Christine Gouws says:

    I would guess no. But I can be wrong… πŸ˜•

  26. Judy F says:

    I would have to say no. Jill doesn’t like them bears… period

  27. Karen says:

    I jumped over from Jill’s blog – I would have to say no on the bear trap. The bears come around easy enough with any extra incentive!

    I went to your workshop last year at Nationals – loved it! πŸ™‚

  28. Zara says:

    I’m going to say no, because it seems Jill has more than her share of bears around without the enticement lol. :yes:

  29. Mik says:

    Hi Suzanne! :wave: I haven’t been here in a while and wanted to stop by and say hello.

    Oh, and to answer your question – I’d say NO. Well, actually, I’m answering for myself. There’s no way I’d want a bear remotely close to me. πŸ™‚

  30. Kimberly Holt-Whitlock says:

    I’m gonna say YES. Jill and the bears are old friends from way back. Did Mickey make an appearance too???

  31. Maddie says:

    Well, this related to the previous entry–all those fabulous SAN FRANCISCO pics!! I also had a vacastion in SF this summer but t I am horrible about taking pictures. I am DETERMINED to master my digital this year and actually USE IT. TILL THEN–I am going to print YOUR PICTURES and say they are MY VACTION PHOTOS. THANKS SUZANNE!!

    LOVE the au naturel man on Baker’s beach– Umm..I can say he is my…. brother….

  32. Kathleen says:

    I’ll say yes too…since you came all that way I hope you got to see the bear πŸ™‚

  33. Donna M says:

    I say NO! Because of “bear poop!!” Yucky!:yuck:
    I visit Jill’s blog everyday & had to come see the picture of her house. It is great house. I love your pictures of San Francisco. My home is in Wine Country about 75 miles north of San Francisco. Glad you enjoyed our beautiful Northern California.
    Donna M

  34. Susan says:

    My guess would be yes even though they most likely would show up without the extra incentive!:rotfl:

  35. Lis says:

    She’s got a beautiful place πŸ™‚
    Now this is a toughie, but I’m going to go with yes.

  36. cece says:

    I want Jill’s House! :heart:

  37. Jordan says:

    Her house IS beautiful. πŸ™‚ It was great meeting you.

  38. Kris says:

    I am going to say yes:thumbsup:, just for the fun of it.

    Jill’s house is gorgeous!!!!!!!!:yes:

  39. Christa says:

    popped on over from Jill’s blog to check out her house. Wow, I want a house like that when I grow up.
    I gonna say Jill said no because the girls were already baiting the bear.

  40. Jeanette Jackson says:

    I think it may be too dangerous to do this so I’ll guess No.

  41. KimW says:

    I say no to the chicken drippings.

  42. ruby55 says:

    Having heard how much Jill loves the bears I’m inclined to say no. However, she did talk about one having visited lately and leaving a big blob behind. Maybe that was when you were visiting.

    Hohum, yea or nae.

    I’ll say she gave in–reluctantly and not too close to the house.:shock:

  43. Paula says:

    Hmmmmmmmmm… Did you put that pic up to confuse everyone with Jill’s happy smile? I think so…

    Eenie meenie miny… NO. lol

  44. Amy says:

    My guess is yes, Jill would let you bait the bear. :yes:

  45. Patricia J says:

    I’ll say no…she doesn’t want the bear coming back for more later on πŸ™‚

  46. Kim says:

    I will say that yes she let you. They come anyways so why not feed them? lol :thumbsup:

  47. Laurie G says:

    She’d be crazy to try and attract bears to her house!! It sounds like they find her way to easily already!! So I guess a big NO!! Boy, I’m envious of her tasting your yummy looking bread! Have a safe trip home!
