#SundayFunday @BookmarkTavern

I have (sorta) two:
1. I never met him, but Charles Shulz called me when I wrote him, asking if he'd sell me one of his comics to give to my mom for her 50th birthday (she was a PEANUTS fanatic). He called me long distance on his dime and gave me one of his strips for FREE, even paying to ship it to me (see pic above). He said I wrote a heckofa letter. 🤩 #2 is ⬇️.

dabbe 2. I had AP English with the tagged author, Lauria Notaro (she's like a female Dave Barry). I should have known she's be a humorist because one day in class I dared to ask what a “nymph“omaniac was (we were studying nymphs in mythology). She piped up loudly for all to hear: “Denise, you of all people should know what that means.“ 😳 1d

Librarybelle I think this one was well constructed, had a sinister feel, and was a good overall mystery. 2d
IndoorDame I loved it!!!!! But can you train snakes? And assuming you can, aren‘t there easier, less dangerous, ways to kill pesky family members or their unwanted fiancée‘s? 2d
CrystalE02 I loved it!!!! I found it very interesting. 2d
See All 12 Comments
Daisey This is one of my favorites of the short stories. 2d
dabbe @IndoorDame Good question! I know people do the cobra-dancing thing, but I don't know that the cobras are truly trained (since quite a few get bitten and even die in the process)--plus, snakes aren't mammals, and milk is like poison to them. 2d
dabbe I'm willing to suspend my disbelief for an excellent detective story, however, if you have time for dying words, Julia, maybe you should avoid metaphors: “Oh, my God! Helen! It was the band! The speckled band!“ is nice and all, but in that same amount of time you could have said, “I was bitten by a damn snake! Here's the wound!“ Roylott would then have been in jail long ago. Just sayin'. 😀 I know--it might have been too quick to totally see. 😂 2d
IndoorDame @dabbe you‘re so right! That was especially cryptic for last words 😂😂😂 2d
kelli7990 I enjoyed this story. 2d
CogsOfEncouragement A snake behaving this way is pretty crazy, but I suppose if an author invents a snake, an author can decide how it behaves and what it needs to survive. lol
I enjoyed this entertaining short story.
2d
dabbe @CogsOfEncouragement That sounds like a great game, too: Invent-a-Snake! 🤩 2d
Aimeesue Look, ACD, I‘ve HAD a pet snake and Jeffery did NOT drink milk. He was cute when he drank out of his water bowl though. He was not about to obey commands either. Maybe I could‘ve left him a trail of crickets leading up to my intended victim, I guess. Even then, it‘d be iffy. And he wouldn‘t have come back, that‘s for sure. 🐍 2d

IndoorDame Sherlock was WRONG! I mean only for a second, and mostly to teach us a lesson about jumping to conclusions, but still, for a second there he was WRONG! This guy is good! 2d
Librarybelle I was going to say the same thing, @IndoorDame ! 2d
CrystalE02 I agree with @IndoorDame 2d
dabbe And not only is Roylott a match intellectually, but physically as well. I think Holmes is a bit intimidated by Roylott (even though his words are witty, and he hides it well)--proven by the fact that he has to bend the poker back to show he's equal to Roylott in physicality as well as mental abilities. 2d
CogsOfEncouragement Roylott gets away with the first murder for years. Roylott isn't so secure in his genius when Holmes is brought in to the mix though. He tries to physically intimidate him, but that just makes him more of a suspect. I was impressed by the poker being bent, but then Holmes straightened it and I realized it wasn't the brag Roylott thought it was. 2d

IndoorDame The country house mystery is definitely my favorite, and this one had an especially sinister vibe… sketchy family history, renovations, mostly empty, evil stepdad type, townsfolk who keep far away, useless stuff, cheetah roaming around… 2d
Librarybelle I‘m a big fan of the country mystery setting - it seems more isolated, and it‘s really easy to build up the isolation aspect and the suspenseful feel behind that. Also…the wild animals on the ground! Just wow…the country setting is perfect for the cheetah and the baboon to hide. 2d
Cuilin Country house? Yes. Quasi locked room? Also yes. The setting was perfect. 2d
See All 8 Comments
CrystalE02 The setting was perfect!!! I loved the country setting. 2d
dabbe @Cuilin Am I right in thinking this is the first SH locked-room mystery? Or would “The Red-Headed League“ fit that bill a little, too? 🤔 2d
Cuilin @dabbe oh good question though neither are probably true locked room mysteries. 2d
kelli7990 The setting was perfect for this story. 2d
CogsOfEncouragement The sisters should have been able to enjoy walks together on the grounds, instead they were on guard for wild animals their stepfather imported. What an unnecessary danger to the whole community. Having so much of the house unused was creepy to me too. I would have been begging my aunt to take me in long ago! lol 2d

IndoorDame That‘s so funny, it is so far! But I seriously thought it was just because I enjoy going back and thinking more about the ones I know the best and this one is super familiar. If it‘s everyone‘s fave I‘m gonna have to do some serious thinking about why! 2d
Librarybelle I‘m not sure I can really say it‘s my favorite - I don‘t think I have a favorite at the moment - but this one felt more sinister and suspenseful to me than the others so far. I really like that about this story. 2d
CatLass007 I don‘t know if it‘s my favorite but it certainly is the most straightforward mystery. All of the clues were presented to the reader at the same time as Holmes learned about them. I was able to reach the conclusion that a poisonous snake was involved, even though I didn‘t know the exact breed of snake. So maybe it is my favorite SH story so far, because nothing was hidden from the reader. 2d

Cuilin I loved it!! It reminded me of a Jonathan Creek episode. 2d
CrystalE02 I enjoyed it. I don't think it is my favorite Sherlock Holmes story. 2d
dabbe I agree with all of you. I'm going to have to read the whole canon again before I decide which short story truly is my favorite. Up until now, it's been in my top five, but not my #1. We'll see if that changes! 🤩 2d
Bookwomble @CatLass007 The exact species of snake mentioned in the story doesn't exist in nature, so it's forgiveable that you didn't know it 🐍😊 2d
dabbe @Bookwomble So true. And many critics have tried to figure out exactly what snake Conan Doyle was talking about. Just like playing the Sherlockian game, I guess. 🤩 2d
kelli7990 I enjoyed this story but I don‘t really have a favorite story so far. 2d
CogsOfEncouragement I don't know if I have a favorite. So hard to choose. I can see how the swift justice is appealing though. 2d
Aimeesue @Cuilin Jonathan Creek! Yes! 😂 2d
Cuilin @Aimeesue So glad somebody got that reference. While a lot of mysteries focus on the who (done it)? or why? Sherlock and Creek seem to focus on the how, which I like. 2d
dabbe @Cuilin Another series I have on the TBW! 🤩 1d

#5JoysFriday @Debinhawaii

After my mammogram/ultra sound on Wed., it's kind of hard to find 5 joys this week. My “questionable cells“ have grown, and now I need an ultrasound biopsy to see if it's the “C“ word. Many people on Litsy wanted to know the results, so I am sharing. I'm scared but joyful that I have health care and that I'm in good hands. 💜💜💜 to all who have sent + thoughts. My #1 joy this week is looking at these gals. 🖤🐾🖤

Help! My friend's middle-school-aged son got suspended for bullying. She would love for him to read a book while he's at home about bullying but doesn't want a book that would give him more ideas on how to bully. It's been years since I've taught middle school. Does anyone out there have any suggestions? I trust this community completely and would welcome any advice. Thanks! 💜🧡💜

Caroline2 Hmm, I think Wonder has some bullying in it which might make him think… 3d
TieDyeDude Rise of ZomBert and the sequels by Kara LaReau have a bully turned ally, but it is three books and I don't remember exactly when the relationship changes. It is also very much as subplot.

I did find this list. I haven't read any of them, though https://www.readbrightly.com/8-middle-grade-books-on-bullying/
