Hi everyone. My name is Rhonna Di and I am one of the members Rosemary mentioned yesterday going to contribute to this blog.
I suppose I should introduce myself properly.
I got involved in this fandom right before Series Three was aired. I think I had to wait four months. My daughter called me one night and asked if I had heard of this TV series called “Sherlock.” Me, being the uninformed, out-of-the-loop one, told her no I hadn’t. This was the first time I had heard anyone say Benedict’s name out loud. She then asked if I remembered the actor who played Bilbo. Well, I wasn’t that uninformed. “Of course I remember Bilbo,” was my response, although; I had no clue of his name either. “Well he and the guy who voices Smaug are in this series called Sherlock. It’s really good and I think you would love it.”
Little did we know she would create a monster.
I first met Rosemary at the Sherlocked convention in Los Angeles in 2017. I got a picture taken with her when she was cosplaying as Sherlock in his bearskin hat. We didn’t properly meet until the one in 2018. Her ‘”Mrs. Hudson’s Pool Party” was the best party of the weekend. Then, I was fortunate enough to be able to go to London a few weeks ago and spend time with Rose and many of the people I became friends with at Sherlocked. That week was one of the best of my life.
(I’m the one with Sherlock’s feet…)
On a personal note, I live in the mountains of Arizona and have four children. Three are grown and my baby is ten.
