THE SHERLOCK HOLMES
PIPE CLUB OF BOSTON
Keeping The Smoking Lamp Lit Since 1989
It seems like forever since we have all been in each other’s company. This month we have made the decision to meet once again in person and see how it goes. We should remember to be aware and mindful of our neighbors at the tables. If you are not feeling well or still uneasy about meeting in person, we all understand and hope to see you soon. I will most likely be in the area around 6 PM looking for dinner options. Call me if you have my number but regardless of dinner, the meeting will begin at 7 PM at the club. Remember to bring a sweater or light jacket as the doors will be open to keep the air exchanged. I am hoping for a perfect October evening in New England. Maybe we could sit outside as well. I do not recall if there is a fire pit on the property but, that could be a perfect place to gather.
The chance to purchase this year’s club pipe has expired and moneys have been collected as well as sent out to the pipe maker. We achieved most of this via e-mail, zoom, PayPal and some hard work from our members. Special “thank you” to Tim, Matt, and Dennis Ciprianno for working behind the scenes and making this happen.
Other than enjoying each other’s company we should focus on a couple of topics, one being the Annual Holiday Party and secondly how we are going to proceed with further meetings. Gather some ideas in your gourd and we can discuss next Tuesday.
Besides seeing some of you I am most excited to be able to bring back the Presidents Raffle. In keeping with a Halloween theme and a “Witches Cauldron” all members who smoke a pot shaped pipe during the meeting will get an extra ticket for trick or treat.
Riverville Murder - Chapter 18 & 19
The patrol plane continues to make a wide circle over the Dolphin as support surveillance. “Here comes another cutter from the south. Looks like the same class, the chief said as he lowered his binoculars, should be here in about an hour and a half, at the speed its going.”
“In case they aren’t watching their radar, we’ll notify the Spencer. Perhaps they don’t need the back-up,” The pilot replied.
The radioman, on the inter-comm, tells the Pilot, “Sir, they will wait for the other Cutter, and told us that we can go on home. A good day wouldn’t you say, Lieutenant?”
The Dolphin’s crew is transferred to the Spencer and locked up, An officer, and several seamen, man the Dolphin for the trip back to Boston.
Men from the Northland, who assisted the Spencer crew, returned to the Northland, which turned about and set out for home; Portsmouth Virginia.
The Dolphin is confiscated by the Coast Guard at Boston and the crew is turned over to ATF agents for transport to Portland, where they will be interrogated and arraigned.
