Good Thing You Look Great in Stripes Honey


Cause you could end up in jail too. I told you checking out 100 romance novels at a time from the library would get you in trouble. Is getting a glimpse of Fabio's chest-hair on the covers really worth getting locked up?

GRAFTON, Wis. - A Grafton woman has been arrested and booked for failing to pay her library fines. Heidi Dalibor, 20, told the News Graphic in Cedarburg she ignored the library's calls and letters as well as a notice to appear in court.

The incident cost Dalibor about $30 for the overdue paperbacks "White Oleander" and "Angels and Demons" and her mother nearly $172 to get her out of custody.


With all the books, cd's and videos that you and the kids check out each week, it's only a matter of time before some of them slip through the cracks, don't get returned, and you get locked-up.

I'm not saying the kids want to get rid of you, but I did see Cecilia flushing books down the toilet the other day.

Of course you would probably welcome a stay in prison. 3 meals a day, no laundry,no teaching, no puking kids, lots of time to sleep...

Wait just a dog-gone minute, this might explain why you wanted to use my library card the other day. You are trying to set me up. I can see it all so clearly now. You were going to check out Oprah's Book of the Month, not return it and ignore all the late notices until they came and locked me up, weren't you? Good thing my library card was expired. Ha, thought you had me didn't you? I'm not as dumb as I look. Ha!

Uh oh, now you got me worried. When I went to request a book online yesterday the computer said that I needed to speak with a librarian regarding my account. I do have 30 cents in late fees, but it can't be that ... or can it?

A stay in prison ... no way! There would be no rest for me. I would be way too confined and worried.

NOW, I do think YOU should feel worried ;)

OK, now I'm really begging for some prayers. My older daughter got some blood in her mouth from an NICU baby. Baby has a MRSA infection and the baby's mom has a history of intravenous drug use.

Please pray that she has escaped an infection. Holy Mother of God, please pray for my baby!
