I think what you have in mind is Lazy Housewife. I don't have a picture, but maybe that will help you find one.

There is a problem with finding pictures on the web: There are at least two different beans with the same name, probably more. Here in Britain LHW is a large, curved bean. There is a picture of this bean on www from the 'Brown Envelope Seeds' company.

I believe the version most widespread in North America is also a large bean, but straight. Were yours long and straight, Jimster?

I haven't grown them. The only thing I know about them is that they are stringless, thus the name.
