One day in early spring, an 80-year-old man decided that it was time to plant his tomatoes as he had done every year for 60 years.
When he got out the shovel to dig the garden, though, he realized that he’d never be able to do all the work himself.
Unfortunately the only person who could help him was his son Vincent who was in prison. Not knowing what else to do, the man wrote to his son:
I am feeling pretty bad 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. If only you were here my troubles would be over. I know you would dig the plot for me.
A few days later he received a letter from his son:
Not for nothing, but don’t dig up that garden. That’s where I buried the bodies.
At 4 a.m. the next morning, FBI agents and local police showed up at the man’s house and dug up the entire area. No bodies were found, so they apologized and left.
That same day the old man received another letter from his son:
Go ahead and plant the tomatoes now. That’s the best I could do under the circumstances.

Wasn't that a good one? Whenever I find something this good I automatically think I want to share it. I'm still chuckling.

Hehehe...I got a chuckle out of that too. Congratulations on your win!
And if Spring is in the air where you are, I need you to send it along to WV, darnit!! I'm buried under the snow here, and gained ten pounds because I can't outside and play!
Sorry GS I'm selfish and am keeping all the nice warm sun to myself ... I want the snow to melt, I want to plant my new garden, I want to shut off the furnace... just to rub it I'm going outside to play in the mud (well clean out the chicken coop)

So would writing a hub about farts be in bad tastes? I have a story (may be funny, may not) about an embarassing moment. Not sure if I should publish it though. Any thoughts?
