It has been a good Sherlockian week for me. . . .

Yes it has.
Lots of good stuff.

First, I received my poster that Doyleokian gave us heads up about.

Looking forward to getting it framed.

Next, I received my copy of the latest edition of 'The Watsonian', which is always a treat,

In which I am humbled to be a contributor to this time.

And then, after first looking forward to, then fretting over how fast my fingers and internet service are, I was able to make a reservation for. . .

And on top of all that, 'Elementary' is over for the year, which puts Brad in a better mood, so I am going to join him on his trip through his summer reading list.
Which is listed below.

I am, however, a day late starting and need to catch up.
