His Literary Longevity Knows No Bounds

Buddy2Blogger reminds me that, according to American journalist-editor Christopher Morley, founder of the Baker Street Irregulars, today marks the 159th anniversary of Sherlock Holmes’ birth. Since I have written before on this page about Holmes’ natal day (and also the birthday of Dr. John H. Watson), I shan’t dwell at length on this matter, but only hope that the ghost of the Great Detective is enjoying a pipe and a bit of violin practice somewhere in the hereafter.
