Little Humor for Wednesday!

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

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. 

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. 

 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 Pop, 
Go ahead and plant the tomatoes now. That's the best I could do under the circumstances.

Love you,

Thanks for the laughs, Sylvia.

I love the "Tomato Garden"--very funny and very clever. I'm always in awe of people that can tell jokes because I am not a good joke teller. But, I guess they need a good audience, and I can certainly be that. Have a great day. Mickie ;)

I enjoyed both of these. Now if you could only tell me how to get those things out of my closet.

Both made me chuckle. Thanks.

That tomato garden joke is a classic, Sylvia.

LOL, My God, what a smart son. The FBI probably never thought a thing before they dug up that place. Wow

What Can I Say?

What Can I Say?
I'm interested in almost everything. Use to like to travel, but it's too expensive now. I take Tai Chi classes, swim, volunteer in a Jump-start program for pre-schoolers. I'm an avid reader and like nearly everyone these days I follow politics avidly. I'm a former teacher and Special Projects Coordinator for a Telecommunications company, Assistant to the President of a Japanese silicon wafer manufacturing company. Am now enjoying retirement -- most of the time. I have two daughters, one son-in-law and two sons scattered all over the country. No grandchildren.
