The Boonie Pepper Garden....


An old Chamorro man who lived alone in Inarajan
wanted to dig over his Boonie pepper garden,
but it was very hard work as the ground was hard.

His only son, Vicente, who used to help him,
was in the Guam 'Penn'.
The old man wrote a letter to his son and
described his predicament.

Dear Vicente,
I am feeling pretty bad because it looks like I won't be able to plant
my boonie peppers 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.
Love, Dad


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

Dear Dad,
Don't dig up that garden.
That's where I buried the bodies!
Love, Vicente


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!

Dear Dad,
Go ahead and plant the peppers now. That's the best I could do
From here.
Esta Later - Love Vincente
