A little Friday Humor to start your weekend:

 Dear  Vincent,
 I am feeling pretty sad, 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, like in the old days.
 Love, Papa 

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

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

At 4 am 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 Pop,
Go ahead and plant the tomatoes now. That's the best I could do under
the circumstances. 
Love you, Vinnie
