He was 83.

So here in Phoenix, a number of people keep llamas as pets and livestock, and we have a suburb called Sun City where all the old people live. Now that you have those two tidbits of essential info, here's what happened yesterday. Additionally, to quell some nay-sayers in our midst, here's a non-Wednesday video of 18 minutes of hapless llama pursuit.

A Scottish historian named Walter Elliot recently unearthed a "lost" Arthur Conan Doyle story while he was looking around in his attic. The story, "Sherlock Holmes: Discovering the Border Burghs and, by deduction, the Brig Bazaar", was part of The Book o' the Brig, a compilation of stories written to raise money to rebuild Bannerfield's Bridge, a wooden bridge in Selkirk, Scotland after a great flood wiped it out in 1902.
