    Has Timmmmmmmmmmeh ventured south again?

    [B][SIZE="4"]Police: Drunk Pa. man tried to revive dead opossum[/SIZE][/B]


    Mar 27, 5:44 AM (ET)


    PUNXSUTAWNEY, Pa. (AP) - Police say they charged a Pennsylvania man with public drunkenness after he was seen trying to resuscitate a long-dead opossum along a highway. State police Trooper Jamie Levier says several witnesses saw 55-year-old Donald Wolfe, of Brookville, near the animal Thursday along Route 36 in Oliver Township, about 65 miles northeast of Pittsburgh.

    The trooper says one person saw Wolfe kneeling before the animal and gesturing as though he were conducting a seance. He says another saw Wolfe attempting to give mouth-to-mouth resuscitation.

    Levier says the animal already had been dead a while.

    The Associated Press could not locate a home telephone number for Wolfe.

And they are the central characters in Vermont’s annual maple syrup open house this weekend, when tourists descend on the state to watch trees being tapped and sap being boiled.

    Sugaring season ended early for many syrup farmers in southern Vermont, sabotaged by unseasonably warm weather.

    Lisa Hamilton has finished making her maple syrup. “We were done last week,” said Ms. Hamilton, who was able to boil out just over 100 gallons of syrup — about a third of what she produced last year.

    “We’ll limp along,” said Dottie Turner, who works in the gift shop at Harlow’s Sugar House in Putney, which had also stopped making syrup. Instead employees will offer patrons cider doughnuts and explain the four grades of maple syrup (from Fancy, the lightest, to Grade B, the darkest).

    Other sugar houses throughout the state were undone by a few feet of snow that fell this month and buried the lines, only to have the weather warm. By the time all was said and done, little sap could be harvested.

    The main problem was not so much the daytime temperatures, “but that the nighttime was warm,” said Maureen Breitbach, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Burlington. “The warm overnight temperatures was what really did them in.”

    Cold nights allow trees to warm during the day, creating pressure that allows sap to flow out into buckets or tubes.

    The northern part of the state has seen some colder nights, but Ms. Hamilton of Brattleboro sees buds on her trees, which means the sap has moved through the trunk and up to the top.

    There’s no getting it out now.

    “If you’ve missed it on the way up the tree,” she lamented, “it’s not coming back down.”

    Thankfully for my kids, the harvesters of Shopright Reduced calorie Syrup Product were not similarly afflicted in their industrial complex's.

    Poor timmmay is going to have to put Aunt Jemimah on his short stack.
    Im not concerned as much with the maple quality, for I am a Mrs. Butterworths fan.

    How could they be sure the critter was really dead?

    Maybe he was - you know - playing 'possum?

    I think he once said he buys his wife wine at the gas station.

    Maybe he broke into her stash during a period of idle home-boundness due to mud issues.

    I'm thinkin timmay wouldda turned that possum into a hat instead of romancin it. Besides, I don't think he ventures South of Albany since they blew his bridge up.

    I once tried to bring leftovers back to life.

    No police involved, though.
