Happy Belated Birthday Poe

...and yes, he got his rose and his bottle of cognac yet again, as he has year since 1949. I love this little tradition of the unknown man who visits Poe's grave and leaves him presents. But I do wonder who drinks the cognac every year? Are there some drunk cemetery groundsmen in Maryland? Here's a toast...to Poe.

I read about that. It's almost perfect for Poe to get something like that. Straight out of one of his stories.
