I know I know...but I want to make these at home using veal, pork, etc. If I do that Amy will be able to verify casings...so, I assume you have never tasted these and would rather be dead than try them?

Using vegetable casing on sausage seems a lot like drinking caffiene-free diet cola. Maybe just as bad, but it would be like the direct opposite of putting non-Kosher ham in a bagel sandwich.

I did Google the vegi casings. They are listed as collagen casings. I use animal based collagen casings for my snack sticks. They are "man-made all-natural" casings made from what used to be consider "glue factory" materials -- skin and bones.

Does a potato peel qualify as a vegetable casing? How about lettuce?

Back onto the topic...
Even I remember the sound of a rotary telephone and when we only had 13 channels on the dial. That all seemed to change around 1979 or so IIRC. I remember getting 36 channels on our cable box and thought I'd arrived. Most of those channels stank, of course, except early days of MTV and HBO watching Porkey's, Fast Times at Ridgemont High, and Revenge of the Nerds 300 times each when my folks were upstairs asleep. What an education I received! Helps explain those Sombrero moments, maybe.

I remember the sound of a manual tuner, with it's positive detents...thunk thunk thunk. Then, they would get worn, and the detent position would no longer correspond with the strongest signal reception, requiring one to "wedge" the selector knob in-between channels to improve the picture...we would jamb a broken toothpick under one side of the knob....worked great.

I also recall getting yelled at for spinning the channel knob too fast.....

How about those long lost sounds of pay telephones. When a nickle, dime and quarter made dinnerent bings and bongs. The operator listened to the sounds to see how much money you had put in.

Being an old geaser, that stuff is all stored away in the grey archives.

I am probably one of the more guilty of those responsible for the demise of old tech by being an early and often adopter of new tech.

When our kids and grand kids are geasers, they will be talking about old tech being notebooks computers, touch pads and cell phones.

All that and much more will be directly linked to the Frontal Lobe meaning effortless instant access to all world's knowledge. They may not be talking at all but communicating directly through the WWC (worldwide consciousness). Thankfully, I won't be there...

We had a party line when I was a kid. I also remember you only had to dial 5 digits to call someone.

The old rotary phones were great for calling into radio contests. Dial all the numbers and hold the last one till the announcement. I won 3 or 4 times on one radio station. They said I could not be a contestant any more. Vernor's and radio station t-shirts were the prize. I had enough Vernor's for a while.

Anybody remember the crank style lawnmowers? My dad bought one from either Western Auto or OTASCO. The lawnmower was green with a white Briggs 3hp. motor. If memory serves me, it was called a Wizard. The coldest natured dang thing we've ever owned! LOL!

Back in the late 50s or very early 60s, we had a horrible Sears mower that had a spring-loaded wind-up crank on top instead of a rope-pull starter. You'd wind it as tight as possible, put the crank back in place, and push a release. What a miserable machine. Is that what you mean by "crank style"?

I remember seeing Wizards until not too many years ago. I believe they were taken over by MTD.


And, as long as we're going back a ways, how about this?

After all this geezing, I'm thinking I need to take my camera up the road about 15 miles. There are a couple of "Mail Pouch" barns that are still in pretty good condition.

I still don't have a ball of string or any hog rings! But, my latest batch of salami and pastrami sure turned out good.

Hmmm, sounds like a job for a qualified outdoor power technician... whistle

Wizard was indeed a line of Western Auto mowers, and Ken is correct in that they were built by MTD.

Many parts are still available if you guys want to relive the good ole' days!!

Hard salami? Is it made out of deer or elk? I'm a hard salami nut! Must be the German in me! LOL!

Ken, I'm going into Amish Country tomorrow. Want me to pick up some string and hog rings for you? I can get them in priority mail tomorrow.

Scott,
Thanks for the offer. I've got enough to get me by this week, and I'm heading to the interior of WV over the weekend. I know they'll have what I need once I get 20 miles into WV.

Todd -- I'm not venturing THAT FAR into the interior. Romney is as far as I'm going. It is interesting that they have lots of thing in the Southern States, the local supermarket, and the Food Lion that are hard to find elsewhere.

Ken, I'm headed out now. If you don't find what you need, I'm sure I have some (or all) of those things around the house, just not in unopened condition.
