Four Cases Solved by Sherlock Colonialist

A Shelved Project

Apart from a brief spell in the middle of the month I have been without internet and email for the entire time; reasons being too complex and numerous to list. The latest loss took place about a week ago when one of our local residents with grabbing habits swiped our cable – seen and diagnosed today by a an overburdened and frazzled technician.

Trying to catch up on everything over the past month will be a hopeless task, so I’ll just have to pick things up from here.

Anyway, the picture shows one of my projects to accommodate books written/published/edited by me, undertaken at the beginning of the month. If you think it was easy to assemble those shelves I have news for you. One plank the wrong way round and the whole thing had to be re-done.

    Those shelves look super! Impressed, Col! I still have to put up bookshelves in our little hidey-hole here in Cobh, and it’s a scary task. With four serial book-hoarders under one roof, I’m afraid to put in even one shelf lest all the walls end up turning into shelves like in every other place we were in 😀


  2. For once I am pleased to learn it was the internet.

    I’m curious, are those black bugs on the cabinets?


  5. SueW says:

    I never have enough space either.I must acquire too much.

    Sorry about the cable theft, so hard to understand people like this.


  6. Tom says:

    What are they like, these local residents with grabbing habits? Hopefully, Col, they’ve grabbed enough now… or have been grabbed themselves – red-handed!

    Underground cable theft?


  8. It seems that we always manage to fill all storage space available. At least you have a bit to spare now. Good job, Col. 🙂
