We're Sorry, Mr. Poe!

     Yesterday was Edgar Allen Poe's birthday -- and I'll bet you didn't get him anything, either.

I used to follow "Poe Toaster Day" closely, until the 2nd generation Toaster discontinued the practice. The world's a little emptier without the Toaster. And, of course, no Toaster if Poe hadn't lived.

Thanks for the link!

And just what do you get a man who has been dead for over 160 years?

I'm just a Poe boy, nobody loves me.

Jeffro: Three roses and a partially-consumed bottle of cognac was good enough for 70-some years.

Robert E. Lee's birthday also. But I don't suppose it gets celebrated much in The Great Frozen North.

I tried to find a cask of Amontillado, honest I did.

Roberta X said...

Oh, we remember, Rick. We remember.

I missed the event, so I'll have a sip of scotch in his honor.

Allan! Allan! Allan!

One of the cooler things about Theodore Roosevelt is that he was a Poe nut. He has a quote somewhere about the Dakota Badlands looking like Poe's stories felt, which is reason enough for me to put them on the bucket list for a visit.
