Sorry about the radio silence around here - Ponyboy had dental surgery on Monday, so between his continuing recovery and work being an insane asylum, I've been a little preoccupied.

But!  I did borrow a book the other day on an inter-library loan, and look what was on the flyleaf:

Remember these?  Remember getting them stamped when you took out books?  Remember going to the library and using the *gasp* card catalog?

- That book has been in circulation for over 50 years! Libraries I'm familiar with toss much younger books than that.
- The last stamp was 2007.
