Date of Meeting:
12th January 2018, 8pm GMT
Location of Meeting:
The Sherloft, My House, Portsmouth, UK
Paul Thomas Miller
Paul Thomas Miller apologised for quite a long time.
1. The society's latest member; Paul Thomas Miller was given the opportunity to choose his own investiture. As there seemed no need to leave any good investitures for others, he chose the entire text of the UK Canon in publication date order. When I pointed out to myself that this would involve a lot of typing everytime I referred to myself, I agreed that this could be abbreviated to "The Entire Canon".
2. A proposal was put forward that we should recruit more members. The motion was not seconded, so it was not voted on.
3. It was decided that in future, monthly meetings should be opened with a toast to a figure from The Canon. The toast will be given by a different society member each week and will be to a person of their own choosing. The first toast will be given at the February meeting by Paul Thomas Miller. The following toast will be given by Paul Thomas Miller. Toasts will be given thereafter by all other members of the society in alphabetical order until everyone has given one, at which point the toasts shall revert to Paul Thomas Miller and the whole process will start again.
"The Entire Canon" presented a nice picture he had drawn of Sherlock Holmes crying because he was forced to sit in his loft. On his own. Talking to himself.
No one really felt very good about the picture.
"The Entire Canon" then presented the following document he claims to have smuggled out of the vaults of the Vatican in some cameos he found lying around:
Any Other Business:
It was noted that "Shingle of Southsea" is an angram of "Single Holmesian". If you ignore some of the letters. And add some different ones.
The next meeting has been scheduled for Friday 9th February 2018 at 8pm BST.
Here are some photographs of the Shingle of Southsea enjoying their meeting:
