Hope you are doing well. I am sad today; I am not sure if I will be able to plant my tomatoes this year. I'm old and it's too hard for me to dig the soil behind the garage by myself.
A few days later the father received a letter from his son, Jimmy, in the county jail.
Please, please, please, whatever you do, don't have Billy dig any dirt behind the garage; that's where I buried the money and the loot from all the burglaries. Love, Jimmy
At 4 a.m. the following morning, a dozen sheriff's deputies arrived at the old man’s home. They had a search warrant and immediately proceeded to the backyard behind the garage. After digging up the entire area behind the garage for several hours, they found nothing. As they left, they apologized to the old man.
