Sugarbush-Squirrel

The Baker Street Babes were, unfortunately, hacked by this man today.

It is common knowledge among Sherlockians that Jim Moriarty is a Sugar Bush Squirrel enthusiast.  And so, when he simultaneously hacked into our tumblr, Twitter, and Facebook accounts, he nefariously began to inflict images of the world’s most photographed squirrel upon our followers.  Jim Moriarty, consulting criminal, is a very bad person.

There are some who imagine that Moriarty loves nothing and no one so much as mayhem, chaos, and the thrill that comes of battling Sherlock Holmes.

He is also a man who spends the majority of his time seeking out new Sugar Bush images.  After being hacked, our blog fell victim to this wicked behavior today, and we regret any inconvenience this might have caused our friends, followers, and podcast listeners.  We will now be returning to a Sherlock Holmes blog, and apologize for today’s squirrel interlude.  Happy April 1st.

Train of Life

Some folks ride the train of life

Looking out the rear,

Watching miles of life roll by,

And marking every year.

They sit in sad remembrance,

Of wasted days gone by,

And curse their life for what it was,

And hang their head and cry.

But I don’t concern myself with that,

I took a different vent,

I look forward to what life holds,

And not what has been spent.

So strap me to the engine,

As securely as I can be,

I want to be out on the front,

To see what I can see.

I want to feel the winds of change,

Blowing in my face,

I want to see what life unfolds,

As I move from place to place.

I want to see what’s coming up, 

Not looking at the past,

Life’s too short for yesterdays,

It moves along too fast.

So if the ride gets bumpy,

While you are looking back,

Go up front, and you may find,

Your life has jumped the track.

It’s all right to remember,

That’s part of history,

But up front’s where it’s happening,

There’s so much mystery.

The enjoyment of living,

Is not where we have been,

It’s looking ever forward,

To another year and ten.

It’s searching all the byways,

Never should you refrain,

For if you want to live your life,

You gotta drive the train!
