Sherrielock Holmes On All Saints’ Day

From left to right- Estella, her husband British MP Samuel Poundsworth and Sherrielock Holmes (the lesser known but immortal twin sister of Sherlock Holmes)

“It is what it is,” Sherrielock Holmes remarked to British MP Samuel Poundsworth and his wife Estella.

Sherrielock was visiting the Poundsworth estate in northern England on this November 1st in 1936.

MP Winston Churchill was also a guest.

Earlier that evening, the four had attended an All Saints Day service at a church not far from the Poundsworth Estate.

After the service, as the four walked back to the estate, Churchill had remarked, “I don’t know if Germany’s Fuhrer Adolf Hitler is THE Antichrist but he’ll be as close to the Antichrist as you can get in our times.”

Poundsworth and his wife said nothing.

They had encountered Churchill’s rants about Hitler many times before.

In fact the entire British Conservative Party caucus under Stanley Baldwin was getting very sick of Winnie’s constant harping on the subject.

Sherrielock said nothing either but secretly she agreed with Churchill’s assessment on the subject.

That night Poundsworth and his wife heard a commotion coming from one of the guest bedrooms- Sherrielock’s room.

They entered and saw Winnie putting his dressing robe on.

He hurried across the hall to his own room, grabbed an easel, a canvas, his paints, a small chair and a very very extra comfortable cushion and announced he was going outside to do some nighttime painting.

Estella and Samuel looked at Sherrielock.

Sherrielock smiled and said, “It is what it is.”

    “It is what it is.” I always wondered where that bit of tautological silliness originated.

    Thank you for this historical tidbit, Christopher.😉

      You’re welcome, Annie. 🙂

      I think it was some King of France in some literary work that used to say, “It is what it is.”

      • annieasksyou said,

        Not “I am what I am”? Which was either Louis XIV or Popeye; I forget.😊

      • Dracul Van Helsing said,

        Louis XIV said, “L’etat..C’est moi” or “I am the state” in English.

        Popeye said, “I am what what I am.”

        There was some movie in which a monarch who wore a long wig (either French or possibly England’s Merry Monarch Charles II) who went around saying throughout the film, “Well, there it is.” 😀

        Christopher,

        That was a little failed attempt at humor on my part—I know both references to Louis XIV and Popeye; I thought the little emoji would show you that. I was also trying to find a way to tie trump to Louis XIV…

      I take it the gremlins at WordPress are acting up as I see you posted this comment three times. 😃

      Either that or you’ve joined the Russian Orthodox Church where I’ve been told they do everything 3 times during the Liturgy.

      Yes, in some ways Trump is like Louis XIV.

      Both with massive egos.

      • annieasksyou said,

        What? You didn’t think my pearly prose warranted a read-through thrice?

        Yes, it was the WP gremlins again. They did warn me when the comment didn’t leave the box that it appeared to be a duplicate, but nothing happened. I thought they had built-in protectors against this sort of thing.

        As for the third appearance, I suspect Harvey had a paw in that one.

      • Dracul Van Helsing said,

        Yes, Harvey 🐇 is undoubtedly up to his old tricks again. 😂
