This was an awfully thoughtful son concerning his Father, wasn't he? Smile 
好兒子!這個兒子真體貼 .....   
He was a very good son. 

An Old Italian lived alone in New Jersey. He wanted to plant his annual tomato garden, but it was very difficult work, as 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 
有個住在新澤西州義大利後裔的老先生,想要像往年一樣種蕃茄, 但是地很硬,挖起來很困難,以往老先生的兒子都會幫忙, 如今又入獄了,老先生寫了封信給兒子,敘述他的難處: 
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   
親愛的兒子:我很哀傷,因為今年沒法種蕃茄了,我已經太老, 挖不動菜圃了,如果你還在家,一定會像從前一般地幫我挖 
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. 
Love, Vinnie   
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.   
第二天清晨四點,FBI 和地方警察全體出動,把菜園挖翻了一遍,都沒找到屍體, 他們向老先生道歉後而離去,當天老先生又收到一封兒子的來信: 
Dear Pop 
Go ahead and plant the tomatoes now. That's the best I could do under the circumstances. 
Love you, Vinnie   
老爸!現在你可以種蕃茄了吧!在當下這個狀況, 這是我能給您最大的幫助。
