Your gonna love it !!!!!!!!!!

Italian Tomato Garden

An old Italian lived alone in New Jersey .

He wanted to plant his annual tomato garden,
but it was very difficult work, as the ground
was hard.

His only son, Stevono, who used to help him, was in prison.
The old man wrote a letter to his son and described his predicament:

Dear Stevono,
I am feeling pretty sad because it looks like I won't be able to plant my tomato garden this

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, like in the old days. Love, Papa

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

Dear Papa, Don't dig up that garden. That's where the bodies are buried. Love, Stevono

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 Papa,

Go ahead and plant the tomatoes now.

That's the best I could do under the circumstances. Love you, Stevono

    I've heard similar versions of this story, but this one is the best. Makes me wish I had a kid like Stevono 'cause I'm way past being able to dig a garden, although I'd love to. Just goes to show how valuable creative thinking can be.

    Hey if you can get someone else to do the work for you! That is great.

    I was just checking to see how you are getting along. I'm on track at the moment. Trying to get off another 20 for a reward trip in November.

    Take care
