wine tasting

A WINE TASTING NEAR TINY TOWN, USA –– Our TTT.com sybarite reports that people are, at this very moment (which will not be the same moment you read this) gathered at a wine tasting and "catching a pretty good buzz, some of them."

While attendees at such bacchanals are encouraged to buy local wines and to sample them to no deleterious effect, many a bourgeois dipso slips in attired with LaCoste shirt, khakis and topsiders, eager to sample the entire lot for a free buzz. "These types are often identifiable by the acne rosacea mapping their nose and cheeks," the reporter states.

Women often sport summery dresses and flat shoes. Merchants do not discourage tipplers as quite a few go home with a case of local red they never would have purchased if they weren't half in a bag. Photo credit: Shiloh Sugarbush

 HOMELESS: A family of barn cats check out the scene of destruction in search of food. Their home, an enormous storage barn on Dubois Road, was completely destroyed by fire earlier this week.  Note the extent of scorched land. See story below.

TINY TOWN SATELLITE OF ULYSSES, USA –– An afternoon fire that destroyed a huge storage barn on Dubois Road July 13 left a family of at least eight cats homeless. The fire comple

tely razed the structure and while no cat deaths were reported and it is a huge loss for the owner, this means hardship for our feline friends. 

Since the conflagration, it appears someone has been leaving food out for the cats as evidenced by several cans of Little Friskies and some dry food scattered on a cement slab (see picture left). TInytowntimes.com rescue unit investigated the scene and concluded that the cats were still healthy. A stand of brush and trees that runs between the road and the barn affords some shelter for the animals. A skunk was sighted (see www.Flickr.com/photos/Frankie14850/ for a complete photo tour, including skunk).

 

Firefighters reported the flames were fanned by strong  gusts of wind and the barn, which was at least 50 yards long, was a total loss by the time they got there. A view of equipment exposed to the flames will give the reader some idea of the heat generated by the blaze. The sheltering tree stand, surrounding grass and even some rows of corn about 100 feet away were scorched.

The barn cats are, as all barn cats should be, leery of humans. We can only hope that a new barn is built soon on the s

ite as winters are long and hard for country critters. ––

Spider catches fly

In a heinous act of natural murder on Saturday night, July 11, a T-burg spider nabbed a hapless deer fly in its web under the eaves of a porch on Potato Row in Trumansburg, N.Y. The deer fly, bane of horses, deer and tiny tourists, put up a half-hearted struggle then succumbed to venom and a mummy's wrap of silken thread. It was this spider's first kill under the eaves, according to neighbors.
