garden, but it was very hard work. His only son, who would have helped
him, was in prison. The old man wrote a letter to his son and mentioned
“I am feeling pretty bad because it looks like I won’t be able to plant
my potato garden this year. I hate to miss doing the garden, because
your mother always loved planting time. I’m just getting too 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, if you weren’t in prison.
Shortly, the old man received this telegram: “For Heaven’s sake, Dad,
don’t dig up the garden!! That’s where I buried the GUNS!!”
At 4 a.m. the next morning, a dozen FBI agents and local police officers
showed up and dug up the entire garden without finding any guns.
Confused, the old man wrote another note to his son telling him what
happened, and asked him what to do.
His son’s reply was: “Go ahead and plant your potatoes,
Dad…………… It’s the best I could do for you from here.”
NO MATTER WHERE YOU ARE IN THE WORLD, IF YOU HAVE DECIDED TO DO
SOMETHING DEEP FROM YOUR HEART, YOU CAN DO IT. IT IS THE THOUGHT THAT
MATTERS NOT WHERE YOU ARE OR WHERE THE PERSON IS.
