So tell me these aren’t the coolest themed birthday gifts ever. An amazing lady gave me the complete Sherlock Holmes library in beautifully bound collector’s volumes, a can of Victorian London Fog tea, and a magnifying glass for investigations of my own (because I’m on to you people).
What you see up top is a wool herringbone flat cap of the kind Watson would wear. (My benefactor here wisely deduced that Holmes’ deerstalker cap would look funny on me.)
Another pal of mine (and an MWC alum) made me homemade pizza yesterday too — complete with herbs from his own garden. (No, not the extralegal kind — we’re talking basil and stuff.) I truly am surrounded by the best people in life.
