Here is a compilation of my favourite Holmes and a bit of historical background. I know these are not to everyone’s taste, but these are dearest to me. They fill my mind and my heart. And these are really only the tip of the iceberg. Please click pictures for captions.
when I was fourteen my friend’s brother told me I wasn’t a typical teenager because I wasn’t interested in Westlife or Leonardo di Caprio (okay?) and to celebrate the achievement I made a collage of David Anthony Higgins as Craig in Malcolm in the Middle and then sent it to him
I just found it again and it’s made me really happy
“MIke, Nana and I, with our families, were in NJ for the fourth of July weekend. Steve was driving, my mom was in the passenger seat and Mike was in the back. Nana had cut her finger cooking and they were coming back from the hospital where she had gotten stitches. It was 11:30 at night, Steve drove over a rise and directly in front of them was a van parked in the middle of the road. There was nothing he could do. He slammed on his breaks, swerved but in the end my mother was crushed in half by the impact. Steve just had a few scratches on his hand and he looked in the back seat and saw my brother Mike laying across the seat, seatbelt snapped, staring at my brother Steve. From where Steve was sitting, and the blood and position of Mike’s head, Steve thought the top his head had come off. Steve tried to keep Mike talking and engaged then went to tend my mother. She said she was having trouble breathing but Steve could see what the car had done to her. He stroked her head and the last words she said were, "I love you. I love you all.”
The police were on the scene immediately. A passing cruiser had seen the whole thing. And as the paramedics tended to my brother Mike, the police told Steve, with righteous anger, that the people in the van will be criminally investigated. Meanwhile Mike was helicoptered to a hospital. It wasn’t until two hours later, when we all got to the hospital that we found out that Mike would live. In fact, miraculously, he just has six broken ribs. I cannot tell you how wonderful that news was. He is still in the hospital and in a lot of pain but is getting better everyday. We will miss my wonderful, wise, funny and unbelievably loving mother everyday. Everyday. But we are so thankful we still have Mike and Steve.“ - al higgins
