“I am full of curiosity. I should much prefer to hear now.”
It is difficult to believe that I haven't posted here on Baker Street Babble for almost fourteen months!
Back when Covid first hit, and most of us were confined to our homes for much of the time, my blogging on several subjects (including Sherlock Holmes) really took off. I used a lot of the enforced time at home to indulge myself in my various passions: Shakespeare, Sherlock Holmes, Bible collecting, and more. When things began coming back (whenever that was), my free time began to diminish significantly. Blogging about Sherlock Holmes took a back seat to all the things I needed to do. (My Shakespeare blog, willywigglestick.wordpress.com, didn't fare much better!)
Recently, though, as part of the Christmas season, I watched a couple TV adaptations of the popular Holmes story, "The Blue Carbuncle." (Specifically, the Granada adaptation with Jeremy Brett and the 1968 BBC series with Peter Cushing.) That got me thinking, maybe it's time to make a reappearance, just as the great detective did after his hiatus, between "The Final Problem" and "The Empty House." Before I begin regular posting again, I probably need to do some housekeeping around the site. Once again, I see that most of the links to YouTube videos in my series of reviews of the Granada adaptations have died. So I will try to find new links (which will most likely be taken down eventually). Also, I need to look through my Links and Sherls on Film pages. Once I've accomplished that, I can begin considering continuing the Granada reviews, and discovering other Sherlockian topics I can cover.
For anyone who still may be checking in on the blog, feel free to leave a comment, and let me know what you think of the archived blog posts, or what you'd like to see here on Baker Street Babble. Soon, the game will be afoot once more, and the adventures can continue! Thanks for reading.
