A Bad Son Makes Good


An old man lived alone. He wanted to prepare his potato garden, but it was hard work. His only son (who would have helped him) was in prison. The old man wrote a letter to his son and complained about his situation:

Dear Son,
I am feeling pretty bad because I won’t be able to plant my potato garden this year. I hate to miss doing the garden, because your mother always loved planting time. I’m getting too old to be digging up a garden plot. If you were here, all my troubles would be over. I know you would dig for me, if you weren’t in prison.
Love, Dad

While he was out in the fields, the old man received an urgent phone message back from his son, who said: “For Heaven’s sake, Dad, don’t dig up the garden! That’s where I buried the GUNS!”

At 6:00 the next morning, a dozen agents and local police officers arrived and dug up the entire garden without finding any guns.

Confused, the old man wrote another note to his son telling him what happened, and asking what to do next. His son’s called back and said: “Go ahead and plant your potatoes, Dad. It’s the best I could do for you from here.”
