We do the best with what we are given

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

"Dear Bubba,
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 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.
Love, Dad"

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

"Dear Dad
For heaven's sake, dad, don't dig up that garden, that's where I Buried
Love, Bubba"

At 4A.M. the next morning, F.B.I. agents and local police showed up 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 Dad
Go ahead and plant the potatoes now. It's the best I could do under the
Love Bubba."
