Somebody scrubbed it off. Must have bothered their sensibilities.

Yeah but velcro gloves don't work as well on pigs. Not that I would know anything about that . . .

Let me know how to get with you on the wrap. If we can't do it soon that is OK and I will just run down to box and ship.

Marc, I don't know how much you need, but when I moved a couple of years ago the local newspaper organization would sell their "end rolls" of newspaper for $5 bucks each. They were like 4 ft long and must've each had about 35-45 feet of paper left on them. Great stuff as their is no ink on them and it was awesome for packing.

So, you might want to check with the DP. Better hurry though, we all know news rags are a dying breed.

Actually, we rented a pig last year and it was hard to find a place that would do it.

Tess' high school had a fund raiser where the teachers had to kiss the pig. Loaded him in the mom mobile with much squealing. He was not a happy pig all day. Will never do that again!
