I remember the battle.

I remember well my struggle with the dreaded poison pill known as…

The Lima bean.

It was a religious Field of Dreams.

Build the brush arbor, fill the seats and harvesters of souls like my father and others will come.

Each one of those towns were in close proximity to Jacksboro Texas.

The Green Frog Restaurant is in Jacksboro Texas.

It was a congregational culinary haven.

Green Frog here I come!

The thing about eating what you like first is eventually you have to deal with the beast on the plate.

It’s hard to swallow and puke at the same time, but I’m telling you folks I somehow managed.

Hoping they would overlook the fact I wasn’t eating those nasty, foul tasting droppings of Satan.

My nod was an outward show of an internal realization.

I was about to have a really bad afternoon.

Then the most wonderful intervention happened.

God sent an angel, a blessed angel, to save me.
