Skid by Rene Gutteridge and Giveaway!

I have two copies of this to give away to those with a United States or Canadian mailing address. Leave me a comment that makes me laugh and you'll be entered! Don't worry, I laugh very easily. ;)

About the Book: Blissfully unaware that Atlantica Flight 1945 from Atlanta to Amsterdam is about to make aviation history, First Officer Danny McSweeney focuses his energies on navigating the turbulent personalities of an eccentric female captain, a co-pilot with a talent for tactless comments and conspiracy theories, and a lead flight attendant with an outsized attitude that definitely exceeds the limits for carry-on baggage.

On the other side of the cockpit door, the unscheduled in-flight entertainment includes a potbellied pig, a jittery diamond courier, and the recently jilted Lucy Meredith, whose personal mantra of "What Would Oprah Do?" will be challenged by the sudden appearance of her ex and his new traveling partner. On her left sits Hank Hazard, whose unusually polite but constant requests–prompted by his covert role as a spy for the airline–test the limits of the crew's customer service.

But as Lucy and the rest of the crew discover, Hank's odd behavior is linked to a quiet faith that may play a key role in the fate of everyone on board. Especially when an unexpected traveler sets this already bumpy flight on a course toward the unfriendly skies.

About the Author: Rene Gutteridge is the author of twelve novels, including the Boo series, the Storm series, and the novelization for The Ultimate Gift, as well as Scoop and Snitch, the first two Occupational Hazard novels. She lives with her husband, Sean, and their two children in Oklahoma City.

Hello! When I was a young girl, a boy names Norman Vennible lived across the street from me. We were the same age! One day I was over at Norman's house and I went over to tell my Uncle Bill ( he lived next door to
us ). I told him that Norman hit me.
Uncle Bill told me to go back over there and hit Norman back. So, I did go back to Norman's. Guess what. I returned very quickly to Uncle Bill crying and he asked me what happened. I said that Normie hit me two times. Cindi

As a senior citizen was driving down the expressway, his car phone rang. Answering, he heard his wife's voice urgently warning him, "Herman, I just heard on the news that there's some nut going the wrong way on I-75. Please be careful!"

Herman replied, "It's not just one car. It's hundreds of them!"

Amy, thanks for the opportunity to win a copy of Rene's book!

Sally was driving home from one of her business trips in Northern Arizona when she saw an elderly Navajo woman walking on the side of the road.

As the trip was a long and quiet one, she stopped the car and asked the Navajo woman if she would like a ride.

With a silent nod of thanks, the woman got into the car. Resuming the journey, Sally tried in vain to make a bit of small talk with the
Navajo woman. The old woman just sat silently, looking intently at
everything she saw, studying every little detail, until she noticed a brown bag on the seat next to Sally.

"What's in the bag?" asked the old woman.

Sally looked down at the brown bag and said, "It's a bottle of wine.
I got it for my husband."

The Navajo woman was silent for another moment or two. Then speaking with the quiet wisdom of an elder, she said, "Good trade."

Did you laugh?
