Weekly Poop 1/17/18


Roost #44 Poop
·         From the Prez – The election for new Roost officers and the Board was held at the last Roost meeting on January 11th.  The results are:
o    President - Eric Waterman
o    Vice President - Donna Chaplinski
o    Board Member - Patricia Neal
o    Treasurer - Sandy Taras
o    Recording Secretary - Martha Worthington
o    Corresponding Secretary - Ken Taras
o    Sergeant at Arms - Igor Gawryluk
Congratulations to all.  Members should think about serving in these positions when many of these will be open next year.  Thanks again to Dennis and Joanne Faber and Rob Carpenter for serving on the Nominating Committee and kudos to Rob for conducting the election.
I have got out of the habit of reminding the members that we collect plastic grocery bags at every Roost meeting.  These bags are used by Diakonia (Food Bank & Homeless Shelter) to distribute food contributions to the needy.  My white Ford pickup is parked in front of the OC 360 at every Roost meeting.  Simply put your plastic bags in the bed of the truck.  This is a great way to recycle plastic bags.
GO JAGUARS!!

Funny Poop
·         A fellow in a bar notices a woman, always alone, come in on a fairly regular basis. After the second week, he made his move.
"No thank you" she said politely.  "This may sound rather odd in this day and age, but I'm keeping myself pure until I meet the man I love."
"That must be rather difficult" the man replied.
"Oh, I don't mind too much" she said.  "But, it has my husband pretty upset."

Etcetera

Funny Poop
·         Ninety-year-old Mr Tomkins went in for his annual checkup.  When the doctor asked how he was feeling, he said, "Never been better!  I've got an 18 year-old bride who's pregnant with my child! What do you think about that?"
The doctor considered this for a moment.  "Let me tell you a story," he said. "I knew a guy who was an avid hunter.  One day he went out in a hurry and accidentally grabbed his umbrella instead of his gun.  He was in the woods and suddenly a grizzly bear appeared in front of him!  He raised up his umbrella, pointed it at the bear, and squeezed the handle.  And do you know what happened?"
"No," the old man said.  "Tell me."
"The bear dropped dead in front of him!"
"That's impossible!  Someone else must have shot that bear."
"That's kind of what I'm driving at," the doctor replied.

Funny Poop
·         Sam has been in business for 25 years and is finally sick of the stress.  He quits his job and buys 50 acres in Alaska as far from humanity as possible.  He sees the postman once a week and gets groceries once a month.  Otherwise it's total peace and quiet.  After six months or so of almost total isolation, someone knocks on his door.  He opens it and there's a big, bearded man standing there.
"Name's Lars...Your neighbor from forty miles away...Having a birthday party Friday...Thought you might like to come.  About 5...
"Great," says Sam, "after six months out here I'm ready to meet some local folks.  Thank you."
As Lars is leaving, he stops.  "Gotta warn you...There's gonna be some drinkin'."
"Not a problem...after 25 years in business, I can drink with the best of em."
Again, as he starts to leave, Lars stops.  "More'n'likely gonna be some fightin' too."
Sam says, "Well, I get along with people.  I'll be there.  Thanks again."
Once again Lars turns from the door.  "I've seen some wild sex at these parties, too."
"Now that's really not a problem," says Sam.  "I've been all alone for six months!  I'll definitely be there.  By the way, what should I bring?"
Lars stops in the door again and says, "Whatever you want, just gonna be the two of us".
