    Bar In Yuma, Arizona
    Four old retired guys are walking down a street in Yuma , Arizona .
    They turn a corner and see a sign that says, "Old Timers Bar - ALL
    drinks 10 cents."
    They look at each other and then go in, thinking, This is too good to
    be true.

    The old bartender says in a voice that carries across the room, "Come
    on in and let me pour one for you! What'll it be, gentlemen?"

    There's a fully stocked bar, so each of the men orders a martini. In no
    time the bartender serves up four iced martinis - shaken, not stirred -
    and says, "That'll be 10 cents each, please."

    The four guys stare at the bartender for a moment, then at each other.
    They can't believe their good luck. They pay the 40 cents, finish their
    martinis, and order another round.

    Again, four excellent martinis are produced, with the
    bartender again saying, "That's 40 cents, please." They pay the 40
    cents, but their curiosity gets the better of them.

    They've each had two martinis and haven't even spent a dollar yet.
    Finally one of them says, "How can you afford to serve martinis as good
    as these for a dime apiece?"

    "I'm a retired tailor from Phoenix," the bartender says, "and I always
    wanted to own a bar. Last year I hit the Lottery jackpot for $125
    million and decided to open this place. Every drink costs a dime. Wine,
    liquor, beer - it's all the same."

    "Wow! That's some story!" one of the men says.
    As the four of them sip at their martinis, they can't help noticing
    seven other people at the end of the bar who don't have any drinks in
    front of them and haven't ordered anything the whole time they've been
    there.

    Nodding at the seven at the end of the bar, one of the men asks the
    bartender, "What's with them?"

    The bartender says, "They're retired people from Iowa. They're waiting
    for happy hour when drinks are half price.

    TODD, YOU ARE ABSOLUTELY RIGHT ON THIS ONE, AND BRISK44 IS THE MOST FRUGAL OF US ALL! By the way Todd, I was going to stop at that bar but couldn't afford it!
