Happy Birthday, Stephanie Plum!

Happy birthday to you, Happy birthday to you, Happy birthday, dear Stephanie, Happy birthday to you!  May you have a tail wagging good day!

Brutus is excited to celebrate Stephanie Plum's birthday today.  He thinks that the books about her are very funny, but he does not want to be in her next car which blows up.  He also suggests that she choose Morelli over Ranger because Morelli has a dog (which is a much better pet than Stephanie's hamster or Diesel's monkey).  When he has finished celebrating, he plans to rustle up a pair of handcuffs (which seem to be sorely lacking in the library) and sniff out a fugitive.

Brutus' Vacation

Brutus was able to get away for a short vacation last week.  He met a new friend, Oswald the Bear, and they became best buddies.  It was rare to see one without another.  Among the sights they enjoyed were the Mackinac Bridge, several lighthouses, and Tahquamenon Falls.  They also had fun playing in the leaves and changing the word "dog" to "bear" (dog, bogs, begs, bees, beer, bear).  Unfortunately, there wasn't enough time to catch up on his backlog of books to read, and now Brutus needs to work really hard to catch up at the library this week.  Brutus had a doggone good time and really appreciated the change of scenery.
