Poe + The Ravens

Thanks so much to everyone who sent get well wishes. It’s really not the flu, but a massive head cold and a wicked cough. Feeling well enough to actually look at the computer today, which is great.

It’s a big weekend for us here in Baltimore, what with Edgar Allan Poe’s 204th birthday on Saturday. There are two hilarious cartoons making their way across Facebook these days. poe boy copyAnd this…poohThey crack me up!

There’s also a football game this weekend – the Ravens play the Patriots, in a re-match of last year’s semi-finals. We’re hoping for a better outcome than this time last year.

As you might expect, the town’s gone crazy with purple and ravens everywhere.

I gave my friend Kit, who is the Raven’s most rabid fan, a big raven hand-puppet for Christmas. She was also the recipient of an mechanical raven several years ago.

  1. Glad you're feeling better. I love your Domino Sugar sign.

    Poe was born in Boston so I'm sure he would be rooting for the Patriot's though.

    1. But Poe died here and we've got his body. So I am thinking he's a Ravens fan!

  3. My fourth grader did a report on Edgar Allan Poe and dressed up as him for Night of the Notables at school recently, so I showed him your cartoons -- the Edgar Allan Pooh comic was a big hit. :-)

    Feel better soon.

  5. Love the cartoons,

    I do find American football very strange coming from a land of Rugby and Australian Rules Football but my son is a big Ravens fan ..courtesy of cable TV.
