Free Book Friday (with a side of Funny)


Today’s Funnies are in honor of the wee little Earthquake we had here on the East Coast this week.  I just couldn’t help myself…



This week, I’m giving away Taming the Texas Tycoon by one of my best author pals, the sweet & funny Katherine Garbera.

To enter the giveaway for this book, simply leave a comment to today’s post that includes the code FBF—for “Free Book Friday,” of course—to let me know you’re interested in the drawing. (U.S. residents only for the prize, please, but everyone is welcome to chat.)

Winner will be announced during our Happy Sunday post on…well, you know, Sunday. Winner is responsible for contacting me with her mailing information—i.e. I will not be contacting you—so be sure to check back in or you might not even know you won! :uhoh (If prize isn’t claimed within 14 days, another name may be drawn or item may be tossed back into the goody bag to be re-used for a future giveaway.)

    Thanks for the funnies. We were spared the earthquake here too. Had enough of them when I lived in CA. But that’s okay it’s now hurricane season. FBF

    Loved the funnies today. I gotta admit I didn’t read what you wrote, I went to the first picture immediately and didn’t get it (we were not affected at all), made so much more sense when I went back and read the beginning of the post.

    I’m going to share all four with my family.

    Hi guys, Happy FBF Friday.

    Only during my birthday week is an earthquake and a hurricane hitting. *smh*

    How is everyone??

  15. Debra G says:

    I like the etch a sketch one. I survived the earth quake and it looks like the eye of the hurricane will pass right over me.

  16. Cathy Ward says:

    FBF Funnies are the best. I love the lawn chair but the Etch-a-Sketch cracked me up. I once had an E-a-S during a family road trip. It was hopeless. Dad would make a sharp turn or sudden stop and boing…..disappeared.

  17. Leni says:

    Something about that cat is creeping me out, but I can’t take my eyes off of it :eyeseeyou

  18. Lori Vargas Agnew says:

    Wanted to wish anyone in the lines of the storm of any sort to keep safe. We are hoping the next door neighbors drain is not clogged because then our basement will be flooded again. We have cleaned theirs as well as we could . Tied down what was loose and poor Hubby will be out working in it helping on the streets . Me I’ll be reading but I did make sure he has plenty of socks . The earthquake for my birthday was not much plus I worked .I loved the hamster my son loved the cat. Next doors table and chairs will be on our porch along with their cat. Take care and stay safe everyone. We wibn’t tell Ma(87)that I hid the cat in the little hallway if I see it on the porch in all that wind and rain.

    Hard to believe that it’s been a week since the last time it was FBF! I so loved the Etch-a-Sketch gallery cartoon!
