Happy Friday my friends! I hope you've had a great week. How's the reading going? I'm looking forward to this weekend because I'm going to interview Brittany Gibbons, AKA Brittany Herself. And I have Sean Chercover's The Devil's Game in my reading pile.
I hope your reading plans are making you smile as well.
I'm really excited about today's Five on Friday guest. He isn't new to the blog but he doesn't get to visit nearly enough--my fault, sorry. Jeffrey Siger is just so much fun. And his contribution to Five on Friday is stellar. This my friends is what the feature is all about.
This former Wall Street lawyer gave up his career so he could write mysteries set in Greece, where he now lives. This year he will publish the seventh Chief Inspector Andreas Kaldis novel, Devil of Delphi. And this series has garnered a lot praise--I know because Jeff recently started working with xuni.com for his website, so I'm regularly adding that praise to the site!
Without further ado, I shall turn today's post over to Jeff (note: I'm putting the bucket list question first because it ties in with Jeff's second response):
This is one of my favorite photos submitted for Five on Friday. Makes me smile.
The #1 item on my bucket list right now is: This isn’t meant to be a downer, but I really don’t have a #1 or for that matter even a bucket list. I feel blessed with what I’ve achieved in my life and only hope that my children and grandchildren find as much peace and satisfaction in their lives.
A place I’ve never visited but would like to is: There seems to be an unintended theme developing here because my answer is Heaven. Not soon mind you, but if asked to pick a numero uno destination, I’d have to say this is it.
The best car I ever owned was: My 1965 Pontiac Little GTO. Need I say why? Just ask Ronnie and the Daytonas.
Happiness is: Smiling, healthy, happy, children.
My favorite vegetable is: Iceberg Lettuce. My family was in the produce business and this vegetable put me through college. I believe in being loyal to vegetables that have been loyal to you.
I'm sharing this with my dad who has a GTO parked in his garage right now. And I don't know about you all, but I love every time someone answers the happiness question. Always makes me smile.
So many thanks to Jeff for this fantastic contribution to the series. You can catch up with him on Facebook or Twitter and learn more about him on his website...which is rather spiffy, if I do say so myself. ;-)
Have a super weekend and happy reading!
