8 September 2012

Fences, we put up our defences.

Well. This will be a slow enty and probably not very long because typing with one hand is slow.

John pretty much said what happened. heading to ~Richmond, bloke swerved and cut us up and headed off. I don't know if it was planned or what. could have just been bad riding, really. No idea.

Anyway, I don't know what i did I think I sort of rtied to reach and grab John, but just ended up landing on my hand on the kerb and  bending my fingers up or something. And John's now massaging my bruises with ice cubes


My bike's in the garage, getting fixed and checked. I've got my spare helmet...and actually need to ask John if his is all right (I'd suggest not, actually.) I know I cracked mine on the same kerb.

we werent going very fast, but even not fast is fast enough when you hit the road.

Last night was nice. Mrs N seems like she'll cope with Sherlock, and he's warmed to her a bit.

And it's about a year since I moved in with John and the boys. So we should celebrate and have a date...when I don't need John to cut up my food for me... and after he's let me buy him a new suit..

Nice shirt, Danger? To go with a lovely suit?

Nothing with flowers on it, please.

Greg Lestrade said...

you could pull off a great floral shirt.

But I won't buy anything you don't like.

plain or stripes? ;)

John H. D. Watson said...

I could pull a floral shirt off of you if you like.

I can cope with other patterns! Probably...

pandabob said...

I'm glad Sherlock is warming to Mrs N that will make the year more fun :-) is it a mixed class again?

A year since you moved in is a great reason to celebrate, I hope you can manage something nice once you're both all fixed up :-)

Have a lovely rest of evening

Greg Lestrade said...

cupcakes? paisly? skulls? ice creams? space rockets?

I like plain shirts. Unless they're white. Makes me feel like school uniform.

John H. D. Watson said...

Anonybob - yeah, boys and girls, ages 7 to 9. They divide up for a lot of activities, but I think it's nice having the older kids around the younger ones. Sherlock isn't enjoying being the youngest in the class again though.

L - I had a checked one. At some point.

pandabob said...

I can understand him not being happy being the youngest but from your point of view yey its years until you have to go through the transition again ;-)

Greg Lestrade said...

You would look fantastic in checks.

Or just a nice dark plain shirt. And well fitting suit. Mmm let me just sit here and think about that a while.

John H. D. Watson said...

Uh huh. Are you off all day tomorrow or are you going in at some point?

Greg Lestrade said...

Should go in. Might go early, fetch things, check things, and then we could maybe see Mycroft?

How is your helmet...I mean, seriously. did it hit the ground? we should probably replace it anyway, easy to forget exactly what happened, and far far better safe than sorry

John H. D. Watson said...

I expect it did. Pretty sure every other part of me hit the ground at some point.

then we could maybe see Mycroft?

Yeah, that'd be nice.

Greg Lestrade said...

Mm. you have got some nice colours on your bum. Well, hip, I suppose, technically. But my eyes keep being drawn to your bum. Sorry. I should have caught us before we went over.

Maybe Mrs H will escape..I mean, postpone...her date with Sherlock.

John H. D. Watson said...

Really not your fault, at all.

Hm...if he's wearing a holey shirt and doused in aftershave she may postpone it indefinitely.

Greg Lestrade said...

don't you like my aftershave? i wouldn't have let him drown himself in it or anything.

And clearly not use it after actually shaving...

John H. D. Watson said...

I think it's very nice...on you. And I'm sure you'll try to prevent him drowning himself in it, just not entirely sure you'll succeed.

Greg Lestrade said...

I'll supervise. and check people aren't keeling over in his wake, clutching their throats.

bed/ I'll rub your shoulder more if you sit up against me.

John H. D. Watson said...

Sounds perfect. I'll fall asleep on you though.

Greg Lestrade said...

deal :)

Greg Lestrade said...

(and he is indeed asleep on me. making quite a good pillow for my hand in his lap. although he is rater warm. i think he'll move when he get too hot0

Anonymous said...

And here I thought he was always hot in your estimation... and would be much hotter in some of those suits!

Sleep well! I hope Sherlock and Mrs H won't be too disappointed by a delay in their date.

Greg Lestrade said...

I would say that John is trying his hand at French toast, but it's more like Sherlock is trying John out. Almost like a job interview.

Currently arguing about cinnamon quantities.

Anonymous said...

Pancakes yesterday, French Toast today... Is Sherlock the mastermind behind the maple syrup heist or merely the inspiration for it?

rsf

REReader said...

Now I want French toast for breakfast! (But not enough to do the cleanup after. :))

Greg Lestrade said...

I went to work before the cleanup started.

Anonymous said...

Me, too, RR, but I am short of syrup. Fortunately, I do have jam.

Did Sherlock help with the cleanup, John, since Lestrade had escaped to work?

rsf

John H. D. Watson said...

He handed me things and dried them and told me more about leeches.

Greg Lestrade said...

Was that before or after he convinced you that what Mycroft really needed at school was chocolate swirl biscuits? Because he told me you definitely agreed we should jointly make some before we go this afternoon.

REReader said...

That's three kinds of help!

John H. D. Watson said...

L - it doesn't take a lot to talk me into chocolate swirl biscuits... I did say he had to ask you though.

Greg Lestrade said...

Yeah he asked me to come and give instructions, or, in his words, 'it might be a disaster.' In a way that suggested that biscuits would be attempted with or without instructions, and on my head be it if Mycroft got disasterous biscuits.

John H. D. Watson said...

I think disaster is too strong a word. It's not as if biscuits can explode, no matter how wrongly you make them.

Greg Lestrade said...

I think Sherlock would count explosions as a success. Inedibility would be a disaster.

Sherlock said...

You COULD make biscuits explode and then you could throw them at people as weapons and they would never know until they blew up and it would be brilliant!

Greg Lestrade said...

Let's just make tasty not exploding ones for Mycroft though, huh?

REReader said...

(Besides, Sherlock, you'd first have to work out the chemistry of what you could put together that would 1) Explode when you throw it at someone; but 2) Not explode while being baked; and 3) Not explode while being carried, jiggled, or just dropped (so you don't explode yourself); and 4) Still look like a biscuit. That's probably too much to figure out in such a short time.)

(But it would be brilliant!)

Sherlock said...

Lestrade I wouldn't give exploding ones to Mycroft anyway, I would keep them all!

Anonymous said...

Drying dishes was my job too, when I was almost seven. But I don't think I ever regaled anyone with facts about leeches in the process.

I got curious and googled for cookie bombs and I found one recipe, but I don't think it's the kind of bomb you mean, Sherlock. It does look tasty though.

rsf

REReader said...

Bomb, bombe, whichever! :)

Greg Lestrade said...

Mycroft has biscuits. They are edible and not explosive.

REReader said...

Excellent!

Have a good visit. :)

Greg Lestrade said...

We are. Sherlock and the dogs are wearing each other out.

REReader said...

Then with any luck, you'll also have a good evening. :)

How's the hand? And how are your bruises, John?

Small Hobbit said...

Glad the visit is going well and that Sherlock and the dogs are happy. Very glad biscuits are both edible and non-explosive.

Have you asked Anthea if you can practise putting her bra on one-handed yet?

John H. D. Watson said...

The bruises are greenish, mainly.

The biscuits are quite good. I was supervised closely.

Greg Lestrade said...

Mm. Mine are an array of blue and purple and green. Hand is... annoying. Today is the day of muscle twitches, it seems. But John thinks I might lose the splint soon, just be bandaged instead.

The biscuits are excellent, because I'm lucky enough to be going out with a very talented man.

Anonymous said...

Edible biscuits are the best kind anyway. Has Mycroft some place to store them in his room or do they need to be eaten and shared before they go bad?

Mycroft, if you're not drowning in school assignments, you might want to hunt out a book called "A Sense of the World" by Jason Roberts. It's a biography of James Holman who travelled various places in the early 19th century, including a trip around the world, although he was blind. I'm finding it quite fascinating.

rsf

Greg Lestrade said...

They'll be fine in a tin or tupperware. Although Sherlock does want to eat them all.

John H. D. Watson said...

I don't think they'll have a chance to get stale anyway.

REReader said...

I hope the fact that you're focusing on colors means you're not too sore, John.

And it sounds like Sherlock is getting some interesting pictures! (Twitches sound annoying--but getting out of the splint will be good. :))

In my experience, biscuits/cookies/baked goods in a school (or camp) full of teens won't last long enough to cool off, much less get stale.

Anonymous said...

I used to portion mine out when I was at camp so that I would get one homemade cookie for each day until the next batch could arrive. Well, that was the plan, anyway. The chipmunks were sneaky! Mycroft, I hope you manage to get the lion's share of your biscuits.

rsf

Greg Lestrade said...

I'm certain Mycroft will do whatever he sees fit with them.

And we need to go home and cook and eat. And do paperwork.

Anonymous said...

You should let Sherlock do the paper work, you should eat and John should cook, it's important that everyone in a small organisation should know the jobs of the others!

Lancs. Anon

Greg Lestrade said...

Sadly the paperwork, although far more boring for my doing it, will at least be acceptable to the CPS and the courts...

Besides, Sherlock and John make a fab team in the kitchen.

John H. D. Watson said...

You don't think they'd like glitter and bugs drawn on your reports?

Greg Lestrade said...

They might like the opportunity to question my credibility and state of mind...

REReader said...

A sad lack of taste on their parts--after all, glitter improves practically everything!

Anon Without A Name said...

I'm guessing that NSY might have a slight problem with unidentified powdery substances all over their paperwork too? Much better to save the glitter for works of creative genius, like birthday cards and pictures :-)

Hope you're all having a nice, relaxed evening (well as relaxed as it can be doing paperwork).

Anyone else watching the Paralympics steampunk closing ceremony?

Greg Lestrade said...

Yeah. And this officer from NSY has a slight problem with a very glitter covered bandage 'to improve it'.

Still, just means the Doc will have to sort it out for me...

Sherlock said...

It will make you happier every time you look at it you should keep he glitter on it! I chose blue because I thought you'd like it the best because I don't have black glitter.

Anonymous said...

Steampunk closing ceremony? Oh, gosh, I hope that's somewhere on the 'net.

And sparkliness improves almost everything. Except vampires.

rsf

REReader said...

That was a very thoughtful idea about glittering Lestrade's bandage to make him happy, Sherlock, and I'm sure seeing it would cheer me up! It might be a bit uncomfortable if some of the glitter gets on the inside, though, and glitter does come off fabric and end up sticking to things.

Sherlock said...

He's really grumpy but he said it wasn't because of the glitter and he said sorry after he told me off because I didn't mean to make him grumpy but he says it's other things and he says it isn't that it's his job to hoover glitter either because it does come off him a lot and he's spread it quite a long way now.

John H. D. Watson said...

I think I can hoover the glitter while his hand's healing.

pandabob said...

It is very rare Sherlock that adults being grumpy is due to something the kids in their life have done so try not to worry to much.

Greg I hope you're okish you to John. :-)

Sherlock said...

We should get a hoover JUST for glitter to make it all a mix of colours when we empty it and nothing else no dust or dog hair.

Lestrade said he wants to play his guitar and he can't and that's why he's grumpy and maybe his hand hurts or he doesn't want to go to work.

Anon Without A Name said...

RSF - you could try http://www.paralympic.org, apparently there's an internationally available feed on there.

Sherlock - it's very thoughtful of you to have chosen a colour of glitter that Lestrade would like. I'm sure that the fact that he's got lots of paperwork to do, and he can't use his hand, and it hurts, is all making him a bit grumpy - I'm sure I'd be very grumpy if I was in that situation. Although it does sound like you have a very glittery flat now?

L, John - like Anonybob said, hope you guys are OK.

pandabob said...

I think those three things would probably do it Sherlock. :-(

I'm not sure how you would stop dust getting mixed with your glitter Sherlock but its an interesting idea :-)

REReader said...

Lestrade does have a whole bunch of good reasons to feel frustrated, both with his hand and his work, which is enough to make anyone a bit grumpy. If he says it's not you, Sherlock, you can be sure it's not you.

It certainly would be a good way to recycle glitter, having a little hand hoover just for that! Might be a bit tricky to keep it from collecting dust and dog hair, because they do tend to suck up everything at once, though.

Greg Lestrade said...

It really wasn't you, Sherlock. And thank you for picking blue glitter especially for me.


Just realised I haven't changed my poll for ages. And I see most of you want to be me. Inspector in CID won for favourite rank.

I chose Sergeant in Uniform myself.

New poll up in 2 seconds.

pandabob said...

the new one is a bit technical Greg! I've no idea what would be any use at all.

who wouldn't want a sergeant in uniform? sorry I mean who wouldn't want to BE a sergeant in uniform ;-)

I hope you feel more smilie soon.

Anon Without A Name said...

I picked DNA, but part of me wanted to vote for fingerprints. Not sure why; I'm just old, I think.

Small Hobbit said...

I voted for fingerprints. Although DNA was a possibility. But, as you say Nameless, it's a bit of a new-fangled idea.

Now, had the previous poll asked which one do you want, rather than which one do you want to be there really wouldn't have been any contest ;-)

John H. D. Watson said...

I picked sergeant as well.

And I liked Sherlock's idea of a hoover that somehow only picks up glitter.

Anonymous said...

I chose fingerprints, because it's probably easier to accidentally get your DNA somewhere if you're innocent, but fingerprints don't just appear places you haven't been.

-Oregon Anon

Greg Lestrade said...

Yeah, it' be useful around here. A glitter-sorting-vacuum.

Nameless - sometimes the old things are better!

AnonyBob - been trying to practice my guitar more, and this isn't helping. Means I've lost two major outlets for when my brain tries to tie itself in knots. My bike and my guitar.

pandabob said...

I'm sorry Greg :-( is there anything else that works sometimes and might be worth a try?

Anon Without A Name said...

sometimes the old things are better!

Yeah, we are :-D

Losing two of your ways to bring yourself a bit of mental peace and clear-thinking sucks :-( Hopefully it won't be for very long, but I can imagine that it would be immensely frustrating in the meantime.

So, if Sherlock's gone to bed, is there anything that maybe the Doc could do, to... uh.... work out those knots?

Anonymous said...

Nameless, thank you for the link. Can't get it to work on this beast, but there seem to be videos, and I'll see if someone was kind enough to put up the closing ceremony when I get to a better computer.

Sherlock, when we do glitter at the library we do it over a very large plastic bowl which catches all the extra glitter. And then, before we move the bowl, we blow (lightly) on what we glittered to get most of the extra off. It helps cut down on the glitterleak, and the bowl winds up having all sorts of colors in it. (Except black. I don't think there even is black glitter, but I'm probably wrong.)

rsf

Greg Lestrade said...

There is black glitter, yeah. I mean, I've seen it on cards and shoes and stuff. Not so popular in the shops I guess.

John is, as always, amazing and helping me out anyway he can. But...yeah, mainly just trying not to let myself dwell on it, because that's not going to do any good.

John H. D. Watson said...

I don't know if there's anything I can do to help, but tell me if there is, okay?

Greg Lestrade said...

I will, promise.

Maybe tomorrow we could pick up new helmets sometime? I should get a day off when Sherlock's at school, so we could take your bike out.

John H. D. Watson said...

That'd be good. We can get some lunch too if there's enough time.

Greg Lestrade said...

Yeah.

Bed? Could do with a cuddle.

John H. D. Watson said...

Yeah, bed.

Anonymous said...

Not having both hands can be pretty frustrating. When I couldn't use my left arm I played a lot of computer games that only needed a mouse, but I do too much of that anyway. Maybe when you're a bit less sore you can go for a run.

Desert Wanderer said...

Glad to hear you're getting better, Lestrade. I totally sympathize; being on convalescent leave two weeks ago about drove me crazy with my inability to do anything. Lucky you've got a personal, in-house Doc for cuddles and...other things, eh?

Small Hobbit said...

DW - I hope you've fully recovered now.

Greg Lestrade said...

Hope you're feeling better now, DW.

I've walked into the chaos that unidentified body parts bring, on top of our other cases.

Does this mean the Olympic feelgood factor is over? Are we going downhill from here?

Desert Wanderer said...

Doing well, thanks guys. :)

Out of curiosity, was there an Olympic feelgood factor? Were crimes down?

Anon Without A Name said...

Lestrade - ah, I saw the BBC headlines (no pun intended) and wondered if that would affect you. Your case?

Glad you're feeling better DW :-)

I don't know if crime was down or not, but I think there has been a general improvement in the country's mood over the last couple of months. I think we're all just bloody amazed that we managed to put on the Olympics and not balls it up completely :-p The Paralympics, too, have been brilliant; I think I lot of people have been caught off-guard as to how important the Paralympics would be. Lots of people have been as glued to it as they were to the Olmpics, I think.

There's been problems, of course - local traders in the area noticed a sharp drop in custom as people were herded away from the shops to the nearest tube stations; and the Paralympics has thrown into sharp relief the Government's plan to slash the amount of money spent on disability-related benefits and allowances.

But overall, I think there's been an air of pleasant surprise that we made ourselves look competent - both in organising and competing :-)

Normal service to resume directly...

Greg Lestrade said...

I think there's been a huge feelgood factor. i'm not sure about the effect on serious crimes, and there's been a bit of a buck in pickpocketing and minor things like that, because of the crowds, and hotel room thefts. But generally people have actually spoken to each other, been quite helpful, it's been quite friendly.

Greg Lestrade said...

Danger, im probably free if you do want lunch and a nice shiny helmet to try for size.

John H. D. Watson said...

Sounds good. Now?

Greg Lestrade said...

Call me paranoid but I shall answer that with a time and place via text...

What colour helmet do you want? I think i'm going for matt black... What do you think?

Greg Lestrade said...

Nameless - sorry, only just realised you are referring to different body parts than I am. No, that's not my case. Unless the head doesn't belong to the person it is believed to, in which case it could come my way. Utterly tragic, though, unimaginable for the family.

Mine's another one, sadly. And weve held out first press conf so it might hit the news soon, although right now, well, we don't know much. So not much news.

John H. D. Watson said...

I don't know, I'll see what they have. Sherlock thinks it should be black and glittery.

Greg Lestrade said...

You would look good.

Any flowers? :)

John H. D. Watson said...

Surely hearts and flaming skulls are the way to go with black glitter.

Greg Lestrade said...

Yeah, so john picked a helmet with a heart and 'mum' written through it, stabbed with a dagger and surrounded by roses with sparkling black flames.

I just got a matt black one.

John H. D. Watson said...

You forgot the flying dragon.

(It's just red. Goes with the bike.)

REReader said...

I think just red sounds just perfect. :)

Matte black, too.

(I suspect that putting glitter on a helmet might ruin the finish, Sherlock, so they'll just have to live with the lack of sparkliness.)

Greg Lestrade said...

I wish I'd got roses on mine, now.

RR - you can buy ones which are sparkly.

There's a bumblebee the size of a zeppelin in my office. If it doesnt pipe down I'm going to give it some work to do.

REReader said...

you can buy ones which are sparkly.

And when Sherlock needs one, he could have that kind! (I would. :)) (But do you really want yours to have sparkles added?)

If I recall correctly, bumblebees don't even make honey (Is that right, Sherlock? I'm quite sure you know more about them than I do.), so I'm not sure you can get any useful work out of this one... :)

Greg Lestrade said...

No, I don't want added sparkles, and it can be very bad for the helmet and make it less protective, if you glue or stick things to the shell.

This one's so big is get it to interview suspects or something.

I'll get it before i leave and evicted it.

Sherlock said...

Can I have it?

REReader said...

*nods* So I thought, L.

Oooh, I know--you can have the bumblebee play bad cop!

Greg Lestrade said...

What would you do with it, Sherlock? You can't have it if it will harm it, being kept.

And I've no idea how I'd get it home...

Greg Lestrade said...

And, RR, bumblebees do make honey, just very little.

I love them. I'd like a pet one too, Sherlock - a massive pet bumblebee would be amazing. If a little noisy, when it was warming its engines...

REReader said...

Interesting! I thought they just stored the nectar and pollen directly.

I know they are very fuzzy.

Sherlock said...

I just want to look at it up close and then we can let it go.

Greg Lestrade said...

Okay.

On your head be it if I get arrested for having a buzzing rucksack on the tube.

Sherlock said...

Thank you!

REReader said...

Do bumblebees sting?

Greg Lestrade said...

some do, yeah. Not all, though, I don't think.

REReader said...

Then please do be careful carrying this one home, just in case. :)

Greg Lestrade said...

...the things I do for you, Sherlock.

I now have a bumblebee in a box lined with some spare socks and tissue.

You might want to make it a little sugar-water mix just in case it needs a bit of energy before flying away after you're done with it. Not that it's got much life left in it, I wouldn't have thought, by now.

Sherlock said...

It will be all right, I'll help it!

Greg Lestrade said...

Well, apart from the queens, they die over winter, Sherlock. So it's a bit cold for them now, really.

Sherlock said...

Even if it's warm?

Greg Lestrade said...

I don't know. Maybe they'd survive. But we're not starting a bumblebee colony in the airing cupboard, we're letting it go, so it doesn't matter.

Anonymous said...

Technically, summer isn't over until the equinox -- although that might not have much to do with bees or weather. Is there an entomologist at a museum in London or a place that keeps bees for honey that you can ask about how late bumblebees might live in autumn?

rsf

Greg Lestrade said...

It's only over technically then if you're an astronomer. If you're a meteorologist it's over at the end of August.

Anonymous said...

If we get the usual pattern here -- and I'm not betting on it -- it will be chilly for a couple of weeks and then warm again until nearly Halloween. We call it Indian Summer (or we used to, anyway.) My favorite time of year!

rsf

Anon Without A Name said...

Lestrade - ah, OK. Is there an outbreak of dismemberment cases or something? I'm sure they were fewer and farther between in years gone past; I don't think I can wrap my head around the need to dismember a person, before or after you've killed them. Anyway, I wish you luck in trying to generate leads on your case.

John - L's already said that his new helmet is matt; is your red helmet shiny?

RSF - we've just had another week of lovely sunshine and warm temperatures; I thin that makes it three weeks of "summer" weather we've had since May :-( And now it's getting cold and wet again... I'm soooo glad we're jetting off to somewhere hot and dry next week.

REReader said...

Sherlock, this site says that worker bumblebees live between 2 and 6 weeks, depending on which source you look at. There is a link there to a page telling how to take care of a bee, which might be helpful for the bit of time you are studying it.

Anonymous said...

I hope you have a lovely time, Nameless. I've been fairly lucky here in Boston for weather this year, but my siblings have all had weird summers - late and then entirely too hot!

RR, that's a wonderful website.

rsf

REReader said...

Thans, rsf--I'm still poking around it! I might be a bit simplistic for Sherlock, but I didn't know most of this stuff...

Greg Lestrade said...

Nameless - DOn't know. I mean... yeah, I just don't know. This one may be rather different from that one, although similar in far too many ways as well. It's hard. They all are. But ones like this particularly, for officers, sometimes.

REReader said...

I hope that helmets and bees (not to mention John and Sherlock) provided a good counter-balance today, L. I can certainly imagine why dismemberment cases could feel particularly nasty.

Anon Without A Name said...

Lestrade - I wish there was something usefully supportive I could do or say... I hope that you're not getting tied up in too many brain-knots.

And I hope that Sherlock has been appropriately fascinated by the bumblebee (and that the bee is none the worse for wear).

Greg Lestrade said...

The bee is probably self conscious.

I'm trying, on the brain front.

It's just been a mad few days for the teams. We have bodies floating, bodies falling from the sky, bodies hidden in the bushes, along with the usual stabbings and fights and car crashes to deal with.

I am fascinated by the answers to the poll, though. You're all budding detectives at heart, huh?

REReader said...

Sherlock is really fascinated, huh? :)


As for our detectiveness--I take it we're right that footprints don't make the world's best evidence? :)

(I voted for DNA, but I have to think that none of the three are necessarily determinative.)

Anonymous said...

I had to think hard about how to answer the poll. I wound up choosing fingerprints because I wasn't sure how much of a backlog there might be for doing DNA testing, but that might not be a consideration over there.

I'll confess that I've been to trying not to think too much about body parts today. But you've managed to pique my interest anyway. Bodies falling from the sky?

rsf

Greg Lestrade said...

With 6 days left to vote on the poll, I won't be drawn yet on how good each one of the options is for a case.

REReader said...

*pouts*

Greg Lestrade said...

RSF - we think it's come out of an aircraft - a stowaway. But no one knows, yet. It's not unknown for bodies to drop out of planes when they let the undercarriages down. There;s been a few over London in the past

REReader said...

O_O

(Or whatever icon-y set of symbols expresses google-eyed shock.)

Greg Lestrade said...

Yeah, by the sounds of it that's what the residents of the street felt like when they woke up to find the poor bloke.

REReader said...

I was going to say I can only imagine, but really I can't at all.

The idea of it being a stowaway is inexpressibly sad, really.

Greg Lestrade said...

Mmm. I won't describe.

I hope the team working it can at least find out who he was, and let the family know somehow.

Anonymous said...

I can't imagine trying to stowaway like that. Most planes with an undercarriage big enough go so high that you'd freeze to death before you ever got to where you were trying to go. I feel sorry for the people who found the body though. What a way to start a week!

As a happier topic, did you get to see any of the parade for the athletes of GB? Gosh, it sounds like you really did the Olympics and Paralympics well.

rsf

Greg Lestrade said...

RSF - yeah. Although someone did survive the flight from India. He was obviously found before he got out of the airport.

I didn't see any of the parade, no. Just heard the flypast.

Belated commiserations on the Striple Lestrade. Here's hoping the insurance company gets it fixed soonest and doesn't write it off!

Greg Lestrade said...

I'm sure Sherlock will want one when he sees them in the morning, cheers, Rider.

And thanks. I don't think it was too bad... but you never know when they'll find some catastrophic crack or bent frame that isn't worth fixing. So far no word on anything too horrible...

He does have a birthday coming up... :D
