Two retired and aging full time couples had gotten to know each other over time, and whenever they met up on the road they would spend the night playing cards and chatting of their travels since last they had seen each other.
During one such evening after the card game had wound down the gentlemen stepped outside to enjoy cigars and their white haired wives chatted inside.
Puffing on his stoogie,one fellow asks the other what he considered the best bargain they had encountered in their recent travels.
Well! there was this fantastic eatery they had visited in Iowa...a buffett that went on forever and everything was prepared as though his own mother, bless her departed soul, had made the food herself...and the price was more than reasonable.
This interested the man a great deal as they also loved good food at a good price and would soon travel thru Iowa. He asked him the name of the place.
"Hmm...the name...I don't recall exactly..hmmm.. maybe..hmmm..whats the name of a red flower?"
"Petunia?" said the stoogie smoker.
"No..red but with thorns"
"Ahh,,a rose?" he offered
"yea..thats it ..rose."
"Hey Rose!" he shouted, "what was the name of that place in Iowa we liked?"
