Sherlock Holmes

I am sharing an appartment with Sherlock Holmes and this other guy. We have no jobs and no money. Soon we will have no electricity, water or anything else and then we will lose the place completely. There is a newspaper on the table with a short story written by Jack London. He has his own column but will be leaving the paper. This was his last story. Sherlock has a great idea to send to the newspaper and wants to send it on nice cardstock with gold trim, except that all of them are either birthday wishes or silly saying. "...lick the cake off my nose." etc... Then I have an idea. Do we still have electrisity? (we've been sitting in the dark the whole time.) "yes, we still have electricity. Will there be a computer that I can use for about 10 min? "yes, there is" Then you write your idea and I'll be the secretary and type it up real nice. Then we can send it in. I hand Sherlock my notebook. Not realizing or remembering that he is a nosey person. He flips through the notebook and steals out a couple pages. I'm distraught, "give those back", he says he will but needs them for now. In the notebook are pictures sketched, pages of my face with sunglasses, over and over and over again. And pages of puppy's and the word's "It's a puppy!!!" all over some pages. Then a friend Mary, writes "he'll be lucky to have you" as a compliment to let Sherlock know he has the right person for the job. Then Sherlock is not the fictional character but actually, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.

flying, kung fu horses and goblins

I am in a forest and there is one other person with me. We are searching for an evil person/creature that wants to destroy us and others. There is a fight and I am alone. I have wings and fly to the top of this beautiful tree like structure that goes high into the sky about 3/4 of the way to the top of the Redwood trees. There is a circular platform that I land on. It is about the size of a small house. There is a hidden stairway that makes it possible to get up and down from the ground, if one can not fly. There is a bee and sometimes it is trying to sting me and other times it is just flying near me. I tell it to leave but it doesn't listen. I know the evil one will meet me up here and so I wait...

~dream skip~ I'm with Grammy and we are in the center of this field, she is in her wheelchair. The field is surrounded by tall hedges and though it is hidden from the hedges, I know my car is parked out on the street. Two horses are running around. They are fighting and tumbling. One horse that is smaller, is clearly the better fighter. They look almost like kung fu horses the way they fight and throw eachother. The smaller one has the larger one on the ground. It is whinnying to be let up and that it gives in. The smaller one lets it up and then it charges, trying to take the smaller one by surprise. Even though the smaller one keeps winning the larger one refuses to give up authority and so they continue to battle. Grammy then wheels to a break in the hedges, but it is a slender pathway so she has to get out of her wheel chair to hop sideways through the passage to get to the car. "What about your wheel chair?" I ask, as I am in front of her in the passage. "Mom will bring it." was all she said...

~dream skip~ Goblins from another planet are trying to take over the world. The world is in a panic. I have snuck into the goblin hold and am in a huge dinning room. This room could be the dinning room of a palace with enough benches and tables to fit thousands. I am serving food and managing the kitchen, while looking for my opportunity. I mess up some electrical things and then find a goblin that doesn't agree with the hostile take over of earth. He helps by turning this huge mechanical rock monster on his fellow goblins. ~wake up~
