I can use a little humor. How about you? It's a necessity for sanity.
The Tomato Garden
An older 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.
I am feeling pretty badly because it looks like I will not be able to plant
my tomato garden this year. I am just getting too old to be digging up a
garden plot. I know if you were here, my troubles would be over. I know you would be happy to dig the plot for me.
A few days later he received a letter from his son...
Do not dig up that garden. That is where I buried the bodies.
At 4 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...
Go ahead and plant the tomatoes now. That is the best I could do under the circumstances.
