Gwen (Margie) thank you for the Christmas Quiz.
None of my guesses were right. I should have known that would be since Holmes described guessing as being ‘destructive to the logical faculty.’
But 50% chance of being right! You would have thought I would got some of them right!
I scored myself: 37/50. I learned that not every envelope in the Canon is blue and everybody’s eyes aren’t gray. I would have argued with Watson that smoke from a chimney is never blue, but rather white or black, at least at the Vatican.
Hi Denny: I found the references to ‘blue’ smoke very interesting. Three appeared, twice in reference to Sherlock Holmes’ smoking tobacco, and once in reference to a chimney. I don’t think I’ve seen blue smoke from tobacco or a chimney in my life. I’ve seen blue gas burning (pilot light) and streaks of blue in a flame in an on going fire but not blue smoke. I find it very curious! Margie
Depending on what is being smoked, the smoke from the pipe could appear to be any colour to the smoker.
Have a Merry Christmas, everyone!
