For day 9 of my corny alphabet we have the much easier:
noun - a private detective or investigator - or PI hence the changing of the I to eye - usually employed by individuals or groups to carry out investigations
origin - about mid 19th century when ex police officers and soldiers began offering their services, sometimes for financial reward
Over the years many private investigators have entered our lives, be it through books or television, with each case usually involving at least one gruesome murder which the police alone are unable to solve.
The list of well-know PIs is extensive and includes Brother Cadfael, Sherlock Holmes, Hercule Poirot, Jane Marple and Magnum (with the dodgy moustache).
There have also been PIs for children, although without the murders - Scooby Doo and the Famous Five spring to mind here.
Private Eye - a UK fortnightly current affairs magazine (first published 1961) well known for satirising political and cultural life in order to expose the incompetence and pomposity of those responsible for running our country.
So, what charts have I found to do with Private I's:
Sherlock Holmes by GeekyStitches (etsy)
Scooby Doo by Clouds Factory
Hercule Poirot by OddityAttic (etsy)
My personal I's for today are:
invisible - I may be telling you bits about me but you will never see a picture of me or my family on the internet (NB if you google our names, none of the images are of any of us!)
And finally my I..... or rather "eye" completed project is:
Big Eyes Kitty by DMC
This was the first piece I actually started and finished on my blog in 2014 so holds fond memories for me. There are five in the Sepia Kittens series and this was the second to be completed. The other three will definitely be stitched..... one day!!
See you in the morning for J.
