Elementary, my Dear Watson!

I’ve been a little unplugged the past few weeks.  By unplugged I mean NO INTERNET SERVICE.  I was simply informed that ‘they’ updated the towers near my house to give me faster service.  Guess what- I have no service now.  This has created some annoyance but I have dealt with it, mainly because I don’t have a ladder tall enough to fix it myself.  This free time has allowed me to write and follow up with some new story ideas and plot twists.  I have even shuffled through some of my kindle books downloaded forever and day ago and made some headway with actual reading.  Yes, it is amazing what you can do when you take an element of your life, like the internet, away.  Which brings me to my next thought, as I meandered through my downloaded books I came across The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes.  I have seen the old PBS remakes when I was little, I even remember at some point in my childhood getting to watch an old Sherlock Homes movie in class.  I am also a fan of the new remakes starring Robert Downey Jr. and Jude Law.  Therefore, I thought I would give it a whirl!  Keeping in mind that Sir Conan Doyle started writing the Sherlock Holmes stories in 1887, I knew there would be words I didn’t understand and all I could hope that it would not bore me.  I couldn’t have been more wrong!  I am actually thoroughly enjoying every page.  I can see now why Doyle was such a popular writer.  I caught myself laughing aloud last night- yes, I LOL’d at a 127 year old book.  If you haven’t checked out the stories on Sherlock Holmes I would suggest giving it a try, it really is Elementary, my Dear Watson.

Happy Blogging and Reading!!
