The brain is better than 2 hands

An old Ukrainian about 80 years old lived alone in Edmonton. He wanted to plant his annual tomato garden, but it was very difficult work, as the ground was very hard to turn over for an 80 year old. His only son, Walter, who used to help him, was in prison in Prince Albert, Saskatchewan penitentiary for an extended sentence.

The old man wrote a letter to his son and described his predicament:

Dear Vladko,

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 Tato,

Don't dig up that garden. That's where the bodies are buried.


At 4 a.m. The next morning, RCMP and local Edmonton police arrived and dug up the entire backyard area without finding any bodies. They finally apologized to the old man and left.

That same day the old man received another letter from his son.

Dear Tato,

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

Love you,
