Last year at Emily's college graduation Uncle Frank, Uncle Neil, and Aunt Susan snuck outside for a break. Somehow Frank and I ended up discussing our rose gardens. The conversation went something like this:
Frank: You know the best way to get roses to grow is to give them a beer once in awhile.
Me: No kiddin Frank, does it matter what kind of beer I give them?
Frank: Well, I wouldn't give them Heiniken or Corona because they will get used to it and want it all the time.
Frank, Neil, and I giggled like school children. I guess you had to be there. I gave my roses Milwaukee's Best this year, left over from a fishing trip, and they never looked better.
