Free Book Friday: Happiness Is…..


…when your cousin lets you drive his old ambulance. Don’t ask why he has an old ambulance. WE DON’T KNOW.

Fifteen, and dreaming of his learner’s permit……

….thirteen, and dreaming of his learner’s permit….

Ten, and not totally sure what a learner’s permit is BUT THE AMBULANCE IS REALLY COOL!

And then the ambulance drove away into that good night. Thank God we got out of it without needing a REAL ambulance.

What’s happiness for you this weekend? One random comment number will be picked to receive an autographed book from my contemporary backlist!:mrgreen:


  1. Fannie M Wiggins says:

    You have the coolest relatives. Mine drive boring Dodge Caravans.:thumbsdown: Of course, with 4 boys(7 and under) they don’t have a lot of options.The cousin with the ambulance and of course, Cousin Sheryl. My son drives an ambulance but that is his job so it doesn’t count as owning one. The kids seem to be enjoying the experience. Maybe one of them will be driving one someday. Have a great week-end everyone and hugs to all:yes:

  2. Fannie M Wiggins says:

    Oh yeah, my happ:lol:iness this week-end is I have absolutely nothing that has to be done. I am devoting the entire week-end to being a couch potato reading and sipping on whatever, munching on whatever and not even getting dressed until 10:00. sounds like a plan to me.:lol::zzz:

  3. Shari C says:

    Looking forward to a fun week-end with our daughter and grandchildren coming over to visit. We are hoping to grill out if the weather remains nice and just enjoy the time together. No, they won’t be arriving in an ambulance (thankfully), but we are always happy they are coming over.

  4. Marcy says:

    Happiness is having lots of reading time this weekend. :thumbsup:

  5. Joyce says:

    Happiness this weekend is going to a BBQ and seeing my 2 sons and especially seeing my adorable grandson.:bananadance: (I’m a grandmother, what do you expect!)

  6. Jennifer Y. says:

    Happiness is reading a good book and being glad that my mother’s surgery went okay.

  7. Minna says:

    Happiness this weekend is reading a good book and watching David Attenborough’s documentary and Bones on TV. Oh, and the book I’m going to read is David Attenborough’s Life on Air.

  8. Angie says:

    Jennifer…so glad to hear about your mother! I hope all continues to go well for her.

    Suzanne, just be glad it’s an ambulance and not a hearse! Now that makes for some interesting
    road trips….. :rotfl:

    And happiness this weekend is knowing I don’t have to brave the Georgia heat and humidity unless I want to. And having three friends with pools I can visit if the heat gets too unbearable! Throw in the anthology I just bought, “Surf’s Up”, and we got the makings of a relaxing weekend ahead! :zzz:

  9. Maureen says:

    My daughter has her permit and happines for her would be to pass her driving test tomorrow.

  10. catslady says:

    I’m happy that our A/C is working! I’m happy that we’re not responsible for the Hong Kong charges on our credit card for the last two months.

    Speaking of herses – I was almost born in one. During the ’50 snowstorm it was the only way she could get to the hospital :rolleyes:

    First time I saw your son really smiling:grin:

  11. Estella Kissell says:

    Happiness foe mw this weekend is going 100 miles up I-5 to spend some time with my oldest son and his wife and 2 teenage boys. Their work schedule is so hectic it is hard to have them all together on a weekend.

  12. Melissa says:

    Having a really old ambulance would be cool. Like from the 50’s. I used to want to own and drive a hearse. 😈

  13. Cindi says:

    Girls only shopping trip to Roseville, CA north of Sacramento. :bananadance: Oh Bliss. And hubby is taking the boys to Monterrey and down to Carmel and then to the Santa Cruz boardwalk. They are going to roast, I however will cool in the mall!


  14. Cheryl S. says:

    Oh, just hanging around the house with the kids and no real plans. That makes me happy!

  15. Margery says:

    Happiness for me this weekend is taking possession of our new house at the lake!!:bananadance:

  16. Jennifer Y. says:

    Thanks Angie…the surgery was Monday and she appears to be recovering well, which makes us very happy.

    Oh and another: Happiness is looking forward to the big RWA booksigning next Wednesday.

  17. Marty says:

    Having time to write–er, MAKING time to write 🙂

  18. Melissa says:

    Happiness for me this weekend is that kitty and I have the apt. to ourselves. Reading, sleeping and computering are in order. But, not specifically in that order…:lol:

    😯 catslady. 😀

  19. Carol says:

    Happiness is spending time with my children and grandchildren this weekend instead of doing yardwork in all this heat and humidity!

  20. Gina says:

    Right now happiness is blueberry pancakes because I’m hungry!

  21. ruby55 says:

    :bananadance: Having no-one in the beauty salon next door until Tuesday–if I’m lucky. Maybe I’ll get to sleep in my own bed until I want to get up.

    Actually, the lower temperature (down from 90+ with feel-like at up to 108 is already a very big gift. I have no a/c or fan, just a dehumidifier. And someone is impeaching on my hydro territory since May. My consumption shows I almost tripled and I didn’t use anything beyond my computer, some light and the fridge, just like every other months. Now I just have to figure out: who dunnit?:wall:

  22. ruby55 says:

    Oh, yeah, our temperature is down to around 70 (or less) but I got soaked to the skin by the rain despite my “raincoat” and didn’t go shopping. We’ll see what tomorrow is like and go from there.

  23. Cindi says:

    Happiness this weekend is shopping all day with the gals, no kids. A special dinner before we head back home. And not having to say “Please stop”, “sit down”, “stop arguing.” a single time to my children. I love em but man I loved today’s break. :hyper:


  24. KimW says:

    Happiness for me this weekend was opening presents for my birthday and going out to eat with the family. Oh, and then I found my way to the mall and bought myself some presents. Today I’m resting. It was exhausting. haha!

  25. Mechele Armstrong says:

    I love the ambulance. We have the first weekend since I don’t remember when with no where we have to be. Awwwwww. I’m enjoying it because who knows when it will happen again.

  26. TeresaH says:

    How fun…too bad there’s no siren! :rotfl:

  27. Robyn says:

    Happiness for me was going to my Aunt and Uncle’s 50th wedding anniversary. 50 yrs. ago I was the flower gir.

  28. Anna says:

    I’m saying this here because all the other comment boxes were MIA!

    Suzanne, you amaze me and awe me. HUGE congrats on the fantastic new series idea. I’m really intrigued, fascinated, and jealous!

    How do you GET these fab ideas??? You rule, lady. :bananadance:
