Tomorrow is the stuff.
Gotta go to Clarksville to pick up furniture.

Got a good story for you Rick:
Years ago I taught Mrs Bear that the Grocery Store "Pink" Ring Bologna is lousy stuff, and you have to get one that's actually smoked & mahogany color inside. So we were up at Lake Wallenpaupack, and I had a craving for some Ring Bologna, so I got out this "Half Ring" she bought along. As soon as I saw the bare cut-off end, I said "This is gonna be lousy". She said "But it's Dark!" I said "They put a dark colored wrapper on it to fool you, and it worked!!"
So I tasted it, and threw it back in the woods, and said, "I'm betting that will still be there in the morning, because even the Raccoons won't eat that CRAP !!!" Now if she can't see the inside, she won't buy it !!

Nice. That style of bologna is not popular here. Don't think I have ever had it.

If you still have some cased up drop them into simmering water for a minute or so . Should plump them back up .
