My name is Jack
and I'm a bean-aholic!
I'm pretty sure that I've told you about the beans
that come out of the sky here.
They are just all over the ground.
And they are DELICIOUS!!
The tall guy says they are like "puppy crack" because when I get around them, all I want to do is eat them and I tend to focus completely on them and nothing else!
Fortunately, they are all around at this time of year, so I always have a ready supply.
Unfortunately, the tall guy won't let me eat all of them I want.
He says not to worry about me eating so many beans, because they just go in one end and out the other!
PS. They are called 'mesquite beans' because they come off of the mesquite trees (maybe they don't ACTUALLY fall out of the sky!). The early settlers used grind them up to make flour out of them.
Oh and here is a bush that is out in front of our house. There are a lot of THESE around as well.
It is very purple. It's called a Texas Sage and almost every yard has one.
