[12 Days of Christmas] #5: A Speckled Band is Coming to Town

On the 5th day before Christmas, Hazy (and Weatherly) recommend:

BOOK STORY– “The Adventure of the Speckled Band” by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle

Because of the animal element, the story reminded me a bit of Dupin and the orangutan situation in “The Murders in the Rue Morgue” by Edgar Allan Poe (I read that story first before this one). Though I think I liked this one better than Poe’s.

Quite an interesting case; a locked room kind of case. I wish I were as excellent at deductions as Mr. Holmes. He’s amazing, isn’t he?

SONG – “Santa Claus is Coming to Town” by Pentatonix

Like Santa, I like giving away presents on Christmas day (but I’m a bit more thrifty than Santa, I think. Budgetary restrictions 😀 )

Are you all done with your holiday shopping?
