Potato garden 55



View Profile

An old man lived alone in Tasmania. He wanted to dig his potato garden, but it was very hard work. His only son, Brett, who used to help him, was in prison. The old man wrote a letter to his son and described his predicament.


Dear Brett,  

I am feeling pretty bad because it looks like I won’’t be able to plant my potato garden this year; I’’m just getting to old to be digging up a garden plot. If you were here, all my troubles would be over. I know you would dig the plot for me.

Love Dad


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



Dear Dad,  

For heaven’’s sake, don’’t dig up that garden, that’’s where I buried the BODIES.

Love Brett   


At 4am the next morning, the Federal Police and local police showed up and dug up the entire area without finding any bodies. They apologised to the old man and left. The same day the old man received another letter from his son.


Dear Dad, 

Go ahead and plant the potatoes now. It’’s the best I could do under the circumstances.

Love Brett
