Four old retired guys are walking down a street in Apache Junction, 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 seemed to be a fully-stocked bar, so each of the men ask for a martini. In short order, the bartender serves up four iced martinis; shaken, not stirred, and says, "That'll be 10 cents each, please."

The four men stare at the bartender for a moment. Then look 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 is more than they can stand. They have each had two martinis and so far they've spent less than a dollar.

Finally one of the men says, "How can you afford to serve martinis as good as these for a dime a piece?"

"I'm a retired tailor from Chicago," the bartender said, "and I always wanted to own a bar. Last year I hit the Lottery for $25 million and decided to open this place. Every drink costs a dime - wine, liquor, beer, it's all the same."

"Wow! That's quite a story," says one of the men.

The four of them sipped at their martinis and couldn't help but notice seven other people at the end of the bar who didn't have drinks in front of them, and hadn't ordered anything the whole time they were there.

One man gestures at the seven at the end of the bar without drinks and asks the bartender, "What's with them?"

The bartender says, "Oh, they're all old retired farmers from Minnesota waiting for happy hour when drinks are half price."

Heheh. I didn't write the joke, just copied it. It was sent to me by a guy in AZ. My guess is that if it had been sent from a guy in FL, it would have been Miami or something.

A friend and i would spend Easter weekend in the Superstitions a number of years back. Great fun, and a beautiful area to camp in.

Another fun local climb i used to do was Red Mt. There used to be a canister at the top to put business cards (or whatever) into.
