100th Anniversary of Red Baron’s Death: A Haiku

Dr. Cadbury Rocher the great-grandson of Sherrielock Holmes (the immortal leather skirted dominatrix and lesser known twin sister of Sherlock Holmes) had gone to see the gypsy fortune 🔮 teller and spiritist medium Dulcinea Lucia for a seance to contact the spirit of his great grandfather the famous French scientist and World War I RAF flying ace Dr. Louis Rocher who was shot down and killed by the Red Baron Manfred von Richthofen 100 years ago yesterday.

And how it was 100 years today that the Red Baron himself was then shot down and killed by a Canadian World War I pilot Captain Roy Brown (although some historians believe it was in fact Charlie Brown’s pet beagle Snoopy).

Dr. Rocher did not tell his immortal great-grandmother Sherrielock Holmes that he was going to speak to her late husband via seance as Miss Holmes considered seances superstitious nonsense.

And even though he was an adult, Sherrielock would definitely not be afraid to take Dr. Cadbury Rocher over her knee and spank him.

The Set Enterprises scientist still vividly remembered the spankings he got from his great grandmother in his childhood and his youth.

A picture of the gypsy spiritist medium Dulcinea Lucia (who was unable to contact either Dr. Louis Rocher or the Red Baron Manfred von Richthofen due to a Russian cyber attack on the Greek Underworld of Hades):

      Hi Anne,

      I sent you my manuscript for A Midsummer Night’s Dream Reimagjned last night.l

      I also posted a couple of comments on your blog posts letting you know that I had done so.

      But I still haven’t heard back from you.

      I’m hoping that you’ll get a notification that I replied to this comment of yours on this blog post so you’ll know that I have sent you the manuscript ahead of the April 30th deadline.

        Hi Chris,

        I am so sorry about disappearing. Work and life sometimes takes over and I end up neglecting my writer’s life for a few days. I am prioritizing this life this weekend.

        I hope you are well.

        Take care always.

        Hugs 🤗

      • Dracul Van Helsing said,

        Thanks, Anne. 🙂

        Yes I’m slowly starting to get my life and my writing back on track after what was a very traumatic month back in April.

        Hope you have a wonderful weekend. 😀

        HUGS 🤗,


      • Anne J. said,

        Hi Chris,

        Happy to hear that. I’m glad you managed that. I tend to “almost-lose it” (almost because my stubbornness is what keeps my sanity) when chaos in my life ensues.

        You have a fantastic week ahead.

        Warm hugs,

      • Dracul Van Helsing said,

        Thanks very much, Anne. 🙂

        You have a fantastic week ahead as well.

        Warm hugs,


      • Anne J. said,

        Thank you, Chris. 😊🤗

    Chris, my grandfather witnessed
    the Red Baron’s demise
    from a trench in France.
    He had survived a mustard
    gassing at Anzac Cove,
    and was sent on a European
    vacation to recover.
    He never spoke about this
    but well documented in his
    war diary, along with a french
    dalliance findly noted.

    • Dracul Van Helsing said,

      Wow, that is a great part of history that your grandfather participated in.

      My maternal grandfather fought in both battles of Ypres, the Battle of the Somme and the Battle of Vimy Ridge.

      • David Redpath said,

        Yes, Grandad would’ve rubbed shoulders with
        the Canadian Corp (as well as those French maidens).
        His older brother was killed
        in the Boer War,
        like so many wild colonial boys,
        sent by Empirical order
        Caring nought for King and country,
        seeking only adventure
        beyond the sandy border.
        Lord Kitchener was an
        aristocratic arsehole,
        turning good and honest men
        into beasts and canon fodder.

      • Dracul Van Helsing said,

        That’s very true about Kitchener.
