"It arrived upon Christmas morning." [BLUE]

Usually we save our Christmas greetings on this site for "the second morning after Christmas." But in this case, we found a relic from our digital version of Holmes's own "large tin box" [MUSG] containing notes of his early cases.

In our own instance, the artifact is an animated gif that we found and sought permission (some four years ago) from a member of Holmesian.net named "whorl". We had misplaced the image, and then did not have an appropriate hosting service to be able to share it with you.

Now, on Christmas morning, that has all been solved. We're proud and honored to bring you The Bloo Sparkly (click for the fullsize image), a retelling of "The Adventure of the Blue Carbuncle" with stick figures, which you can see below. If you're reading this on a feed reader or via email, please click on "I Hear of Sherlock" in the header of the email to advance to the website to see the animation. The slides advance automatically, so if you need to start over, just hit F5 or refresh your browser to start over.

We hope that your holiday is an enjoyable one. Expect to see us back here again in two days (i.e. "the second morning after Christmas" [BLUE]).
