Working Up Your Garden Idea

An elderly Italian man lived alone in New Jersey . He wanted to plant his annual tomato garden, but it was very difficult work, since 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.
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.

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,

Morning Report May 24/2020

Good Morning! This morning we are all waking up to some rain here in Port Loring, Ontario, Canada. Temperatures were sitting at 17.8 C | 64.04 F. It will warm up later on, but it won’t be as warm as it was yesterday. The rain should remain with us for most of the day an then tomorrow we should see the return of some sunshine. But we do need the rain as things are really dry. I also need my rain barrel filled Ha ha. Highway 522 is quiet this morning but it will pick up as the day progresses. Yesterday it was really busy pretty well non stop with cars. Not a good thing in my eyes, but it’s what some folks want to do, not caring if they get the virus or spread it. Or so it seems. The new cases in Ontario are slowly rising every day as I suspected and will continue I am sure. On another note I did take advantage of the hot sunny day yesterday and painted two of my decks. I got tired of staining them every year as with the cheap stain they are making these days it wears off in one year or less. I should say it isn’t cheap buying it but the quality is not good. Today being that is raining I will stay inside and do some work in my basement. Clean things up and get it ready for next winters wood. Always something to do when owning a home. The Black Flies are out in full force these days. Kind of hard to stay away from them. I am not getting bit as much this year but they are still annoying let me tell you. The folks from Toronto and places of such, that aren’t used to them, well … they are in for a shock. LOL I see lots walking up and down the Highway in shorts with their arms just a waving trying to shoo them away. Ha ha. With that I am off for my morning cup of tea with my lovely wife and will then see what I can get myself into. Have a great day and stay safe. GW
