Wonderful Watsonians: Margie Deck

Be your own Boswell and tell us a little about yourself! 

1. Name (or alias): Margie Deck

2. Bullpup moniker (Contact us if you don’t know):


3. Who is your favorite Watson and why?

Beyond the original in the Canon, I tend to favor Jude Law’s interpretation—he presents exasperated enthusiasm better than any other in my view, and he has the “natural advantages” Sherlock Holmes said Watson has.

4. If Watson was writing a story about you, what would it be titled?

The Adventure of the Puzzled Imposter

Give us an improbable fact about yourself!

In 1995, while in London for a honeymoon, I rang the bell at Westminster Abbey for a call to a prayer service.

Why did you join the JHWS?

When the first treasure hunt was announced in 2013, I gathered  some friends from The Sound of the Baskervilles to work on the thing as a team.  I contacted Don ‘Buttons’ Libey and told him we were playing along just for the fun of it even though the treasure hunt was not a team competition. [The treasure hunt was originally planned as an individual competition only.] Buttons added the team competition because of the SOBs, and I’ve happily been a member since then.

We want to feature all of our Wonderful Watsonians! Especially you! Why don’t you respond to the questions above (picture optional) to buttons@johnhwatsonsociety.com?
