When I was a child, my father was a bit of a pipe smoker. He had a wooden pipe rack, and a selection of a few pipes. His favorite was a Calabash, the kind of pipe Sherlock Holmes smoked (in the old black and white movies, at least).
Then, we were burglarized. They didn't take much (we weren't exactly wealthy) but they did take Dad's Sherlock Holmes pipe, mostly for the irony, I have to assume.
Hey, if you’re interested in a supernatural, and comedic interpretation of Sherlock Holmes, an old friend of mine wrote a book you might enjoy.
Note from Missy: Also, the second book in the Warlock Holmes series is coming out May 16, 2017. 😊
