thanks jess,

you know, all this talk about holmes is making me wanna read him again. as a child i read several of the stories. that was a LONG time ago. i don't remember much of them, but i remember they were fun.

in the mystery category, i read a bunch of the hardy boys. and although my grandmother had perry mason on the tv, it was not my cup of tea. i did watch a bunch of the old charlie chan movies. i watched them with my aunt. they were great. kind of a chinese spin on holmes.

this message is on topic because by my definition, holmes, the hardy boys, perry mason, and charlie chan were hardboiled. come to think of it, so was my grandmother.
