Lord Peter Wimsey

Inspired by the photos of Wimsey and his antics described on Nikki's blog ~ a mystery is solved.


A closer look and links:
Can you find at least eight additional props?





I much prefer the outside air
To sitting on a classy chair.
My passion is the great outdoors
Where it’s assumed I’m on all fours,
But sleuthing calls for many poses
As I search amongst the roses.
At times I pause; I need to think.
A pool is more than just a drink -
As I reflect and contemplate
On all the clues I’ve found of late...
A Side Blotched lizard slithers by.
A grassroots movement? Private eye!
And yes, he wears a Bowler hat,
A tailored suit and starched cravat.
Although it’s thought I give him chase,
We work together on each case.
Egads, I’m not a lizard hunter!
He, my friends, is Mervyn Bunter.
His alias when on the loose
Is Lennie, Gimpy, Newt or Bruce.

Lord Peter Wimsey, by the way.
I'm at your service, come what may.

  3. Another wonderful poem and picture! Glo, I don't know how you can whip these things out like you do. I needed a little cheering this morning and your post delighted me greatly. The watch in the pocket is such a great touch. The top hat cracks me up. You really captured his debonair spirit. The poem is fantastic. Thank you Glo for another really entertaining post :) I think I found all eight items too!

    1. Hi Roomie ~ As soon as I saw Nikki's post about Wimsey, my mind started to work away over a couple of days until I found myself at the keyboard playing with monocles, spats, pocket watches, etc. and outfitting LPW in suitable attire. I'm glad you enjoyed the poem and photo ~ and good detective skills finding the items :) Always happy to crack somebody up ;)

  4. Hi Glo, Roomie said you put my picture and a poem about me on the internet. Wow, you really understand me, Glo. I think you are the best poet ever :) Thanks for the stylish clothes too. The first new Lizard friend I make will be named Bruce, in honor of your poem.

    1. A visit from Wimsey, how precious is that!
      I think it’s the first time I’ve heard from a cat.
      How charming to see you, Lord Peter, say I.
      I’m honoured and thank you for coming on by.

    1. Hi Flighty ~ I thought you might enjoy Wimsey bedecked as his elegant self, searching for clues and deducing this and that ;) Yes, I was thrilled to see Wimsey drop by.

  6. OH OH OH OH!!! I love this -- I saw it this morning but couldn't comment until now. Have had silly grin all day :-) You've certainly blended Wimsey and his namesake together perfectly. LOVE the monocle!

    1. LOL,Nikki, I'm so pleased you enjoyed seeing Wimsey outfitted just so, to fit his station. Yes, the monocle ~ good eye ;) I'm just wondering if George whispers secrets in his ear when they're snuggled up. Perhaps they are in cahoots!

  8. What an entertaining post, both image and poem. I found eight props, then looked again and only could find seven. I believe I need my coffee and my contact lenses! (Nikki told me I had to drop everything and come over RIGHT NOW! so I did!)

    1. Lovely of you to hasten over from Nikki's blog:) I went back to count the props as well, and only found seven ... and then I remembered that the shirt collar and tie were two different props; I suppose the spats could be counted as two - one on each foot ;) Your blog is wonderfully informative!

    a look at some of your non-adrian artwork! :)

  11. Hi Glo, I don't remember if I evr was able to get back to you (my internet has been giving me fits and has been so spotty) but I wanted to thank you for your time and work on researching "Mickey Slick". I was so glad to recieve the information. You have a very unique blog here and if I can get my blogger to "mind me" I will be following along. Have a blessed day!
