Hello. This is a TDB quick note. I’m your inquisitive doggie host Chester L. W. Spaniel.
Today Dad brought in some strange fruit. At first I thought they were tennis balls. They’re about the same size and color.
They are heavy but firm, a little bit sticky, smell like pine resin, and don't bounce. I called in my learned associate Joseph (Joey dog) Spaniel who, as you know, is Doggie Chief Inspector, comestibles division, and founder of the Yum Yum Coalition. He says he knows exactly what they are, but he’s wondering if anyone else knows.
(answer: osage oranges, aka hedge apples)
