03/20/07 Grif.Net – Spring Gardening

[Many have “welcomed me back” and glad to see the (off since March
1st) back on line and wondered where we’ve been. We’ve enjoyed a few days in
LA with grandchildren, then a cruise to Hawaii and back with the bride of 37
years. While I’ve loved doing the for 11 years, there are other
things in my life that come first!]

Speaking of family, an old Italian man lived alone in the country. He wanted
to dig his tomato garden, but it was very hard work as the ground was hard.
His only son, Vincent, who used to help him, was in prison. The old man
wrote a letter to his son and described his predicament.

Dear Vincent,
I am feeling pretty bad because it looks like I won’t be able to plant my
tomato garden this year. I’m just getting too old to be digging up a garden
plot. If you were here my troubles would be over. I know you would dig the
plot for me. Love Dad

A few days later he received a letter from his son.

Dear Dad,
Not for nothing, but don’t dig up that garden. That’s where I buried the
Love Vinnie

At 4 a.m. the next morning, FBI agents and local police arrived and dug up
the entire area without finding any bodies. They apologized to the old man
and left.

That same day the old man received another letter from his son.

Dear Dad,
Go ahead and plant the tomatoes now. That’s the best I could do under the
Love Vinnie
