Nice read

Got this as a forward.. Read for a few laughs.
An old man lived alone in Minnesota. He wanted to spade his potato
garden, but it was very hard work. His only son, who would have helped
him, was in prison.

The old man wrote a letter to his son and mentioned his situation:

Dear Son,

I am feeling pretty bad because it looks like Iwon'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 just 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 the plot for
me, if you weren't in prison.

..Love, Dad

Shortly, the old man received this telegram:
"For Heaven's sake, Dad, don't dig up the garden!! That's where I
buried the GUNS!!"

At 4 a.m. the next morning, a dozen FBI agents and local police officers
showed up 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 asked him what to do next.

His son's reply was:
"Go ahead and plant your potatoes,Dad..................
........ It's the
best I could do for you from here."
