George is trying to get someone to dig up his garden for him.  My Grandpa
buried his money in a mason jar during the 1930s, so he and Grandma could
take a winter vacation (he was a farmer).  Time for the vacation, dig up
the money.  Ouch!  The ground was frozen solid.  The bank he didn't trust
had to lend him the money.  Never did that again.  Margaret
