The Italian Tomato Garden

Recommended Posts

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 badly 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. I know if you were here my troubles would be over. I know

you would be happy to dig the plot for me.

Love, Dad

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

Dear Dad,

Don't dig up that garden. That's where I buried the bodies.

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 circumstances.

Love you, Vinnie

That was great! Ingenious!

Understand this lad, fate is a fickle lady. Work with the hand you're dealt and you may just be able to run your flag up the pole. Don't, and well, you may just find your mast cut down.
