Aunt Tilly Needed a Drink

This just in from Jay and Ken at Atlock Farm, a most intriguing place in Somerset, NJ:

After some 20 years, perched high above the succulents,in a green houses at Atlock Farm, (in Somerset, New Jersey), much beloved Aunt Tilly, cut loose and unceremoniously plopped to the ground.

Owner Ken Selody felt it only fitting to give the girl a chair and a cheer, by having her join us for cocktails. She had a Cosmo. A double.

This report was followed quickly by the following:

Okay…Ken said I must be honest here… Tillandsia had suicidal tendencies, and unbeknownst to me, she’d tried this before. We’ll never know for sure, but she might well have purposely thrown herself from the top of the greenhouse….plunging to… her, well…. nearest cocktail? She liked to drink…albiet sparingly, considering her genus.

That is all.

    If I needed a drink every time I had a bad hair day I would always be soused.

    She’s lovely–and always had a secret need for those 15 minutes of fame.
