Happy Birthday, Holmes!

For those of you who don’t know (and I suspect there may be at least a few of you), today is Sherlock Holmes’s birthday. His 155th birthday to be exact. I know. It’s hard to believe, isn’t it? I don’t think he looks a day over a hundred. Of course, I remember when Holmes was just the tender age of 133 or 134. Jeremy Brett was still alive and the Granada series wasn’t complete crap. I discovered Sleuth of Baker Street and Without A Clue hit movie theatres. But enough of the nostalgia. For Holmes, nostalgia often seems to lead to depression (e.g. when he laments the lack of true criminals in London) and this is meant to be a happy occasion. So…many happy returns, Holmes! I’m looking forward to seeing you again soon – preferably in something that wasn’t written or directed by Guy Ritchie!
