But there's just one thing...

..and I really wanna know.

I am a bit of a fan of murder mysteries. I'm not encyclopedic about them, nor am I an absolute sleuth myself. I just really adore them. Today I witnessed Lieutenant Columbo unravel a great murder whilst on a Cruise with his never-seen-wife. The King of "Just One Thing..." had me enraptured. In the scheme of things I do rate him highly, but my beloved remains that ever so astute Mr Sherlock Holmes and his aides Dr John Watson and Mr Mycroft Holmes. Holmes will forever be the coolest in my books. He leads the pack which includes Lt. Columbo, Charlie Chan, Murder She Wrote, Midsomer Murders, Riptide, Jonathan Creek, The Three Investigators, The Hardy Boys, Poirot (no i do not look like him so stop it), The Black Hand Gang, and sooo many more of equal and sometimes lesser merit.

Here's a mystery, which of the above do I credit with the initial sparking of my Sleuthing Addiction???

Tonight I'll watch another new episode with Chief Inspector Barnaby, and then wake up the next morning and walk off to work in an office where the most mysterious thing to happen is how the Client is able to sit and pay up for things knowing we whack a 25% margin on everything we resell them???
