Dear Irvin:

This is Indy. Greetings from Canada! I hope this finds you and yours well.

A beautiful piece. It saddens me a tad to think of them elderly and retired. I can still see Sherlock running about the streets of London like a madman (I mean this with great affection, of course) with John trying to keep up.

Yet, all good things do come to an end and, so it is with our beloved detective and doctor. A holiday? No, I think not. The London/221b Baker Street chapter of their lives and a new one open--Retirement.

John, Sherlock, you shouldn't be thanking us. It's us who should be thanking you for the entertainment and the memories with which you left us.

Happy Retirement!!!


Sincerely yours always,

Indy.

P.S. I was looking at this piece and noticed two things: 1) Should in the inscription be "Thank you from Us?" and Where is Sherlock's scarf?

Good day)
I'm not sure that I correctly translated your letter. But I think you misunderstood this image.
The text refers to the "Thank You (Sherlock), for "us"(our family, our friendship, adventure, etc.)" and "Thank you (John), for "us". It's like a postcard picture from vacation, signed by one of them for another.
Maybe when John married Mary, perhaps, when Sherlock jumped from the roof, maybe after 20 years of marriage....
A piece of shared happiness, of which one says to another, without wasting words.
but on account of the scarf .. it is f Summer's wash)

Now, when you said that way, I more than likely did. It's like when someone's on the phone and you tell them to say goodbye to the other person on the other end of the line for you?

Now, I have I got it straight?

As for the scarf, you must remember we're talking about Sherlock Holmes. This guy would the coat and scarf in ninety degree heat, despite the numerous times John has begged him to wear something lighter!

I'm tellin' ya, Irvin, the man is just asking for a good case of heat stroke!

Sincerely yours always,

Indy.

P.S. Did you understand what I said about their (Sherlock and John's) retirement?

Oh, it's always amazed me why people are credited with Sherlock strange habits) In the series, showed only the cold season, when Sherlock (and all) went to the coat and scarf. There was no evidence that he is doing it all year).
Yes, about the retirement of our guys, I understand)

Dear Irvin:

This is Indy. Greetings from Canada!! I hope this finds you and yours well.

How long have you been interested in Sherlock? I supposed you have noticed, at some point, that Moffat/Gatiss(Mycrof) have followed Conan Doyle's tales pretty faithfully; right up to and including Reichenbach Falls, with St. Bart's Hospital standing in for the actual waterfall.

If you read some of the tales (stories)in FanFiction.net, you'll find that some of the tales do take place in warmer temperatures, thus no need for the great coat and scarf. I'm even writing tales that take place in warmer times of the year. I'm a Canadian, so I think you can understand with a country that has winters that are hard to believe when it comes unbelievable amounts of snow (at times), that I I prefer writing a tale that has characters in summer climes rather than the cold!

In light of this, you must remember that Sherlock Holmes, the dear boy, is a sociopath--despite what Donovan calls him. He has two of the classic symptoms for sociopathy--a)The inability to read people's facial expression and body language and b)having no knowledge of how to join in on social interactions. I think a third symptom would be very high intelligence, which Sherlock has in spades!

There has been discussions in which Sherlock has been described as a high functioning autistic or even having Asperger's Syndrome, but Sir Arthur Conan Doyle has even referred to his detective as a sociopath. No matter what Donovan or Anderson say, sociopaths don't kill. Sherlock would use a gun in self defence, on in boredom as in the case of the wallpaper, but he won't shoot anyone deliberately.

Between you, me and the back fence, I hear there's a grassroots (small scale) movement going on to get Benedict to wear the deerstalker (Sherlock's hat) for at least part of an episode. I'm not really sure how this will pan out.

Sincerely yours always,

Indy.

Please if you need any clarification, feel free to ask.

Кажется, я потеряла нить нашей беседы...
Я только изобразила то, что посчитала нужным, так, как я считаю правильным. Возможно, у меня свой взгляд на образ Шерлока ВВС, но я не пыталась раскрыть его образ в этом небольшом рисунке. Здесь только то, что нужно, ни больше, ни меньше. История "отношений", а не "персон".

You can use online translator, as I do.
I think I lost the thread of our conversation ...
I just portrayed that has considered it necessary, as I think is right. Maybe I have a look at the way of Sherlock BBC, but I'm not trying to uncover his way in this small picture. There is only what you need, nothing more, nothing less. The history of "relationships" and not "persons".
