  • Roost ApparelAn order will be going to Red Sun for the 3 Raven's Head Flag Logo shirts after the next meeting on July 9th.  These have been extremely popular and I know I get people asking me wherever I go, "Where did you get that shirt?  Can I buy one?"  Don't get left out and don't assume that there will be extras in your favorite color and size.  The sweatshirt jackets can be ordered in black and grey and are $25.  The long sleeved T's can be ordered in grey, black and purple and are $20.  The short sleeved T's are $15 and can be ordered in just about every color imaginable, but black and purple are the ordered favorites so far.  I've done some in pink (ladies but hey we aren't judging), red (Terps fan) and orange (Orioles fan) and they turned out really cute.  I can also order children's sizes and of course they are less (but it depends on what size you are ordering).  This is the second order of these and not sure there will be enough interest for a third, so if you want one (or more), are thinking about one for a gift for your family and friends, don't sit on this!  You can place your order at the July 9 meeting (I have a few grey ones left so you can see the style and buy those) or email Maggie at millermaggie@mchsi.com.   Don't be left out, get on the list for the order! 
Football season will be upon us soon!  Did your favorite player leave the team and now you don't have a jersey and spending another $100 bucks just isn't in the plan?  How about a Roost 44 jersey?  They cost $35 and you'll never be traded!   See Maggie at the next meeting or email her at millermaggie@mchsi.com.  Various sizes still available.  Show your Roost pride at the stadium! 
New to the Roost?  Do you have a Turtle, Ox and Raven logo short sleeved T?  We have a few left and they will be at the July meeting as well.  Purple and grey available - cute logo  $15.   
Last but not least:  new Roost members might like a purple Hawaiian shirt for $40!  Taking orders for those and hope to place the order after the July 9th meeting.  You'll see a bunch of them at the upcoming picnic, I'm sure.  And those of your whose shirt has been "shrunken in the dryer"....you'll need a new one too so order one!  Also Roost 44 golf shirts - yes the purple ones with the "slimming white side stripes" can be ordered anytime.  They are $35 and come in both men's style and ladies v-neck collar style with a Roost logo on the left chest.  An order for these will also be going in to Red Sun after the July 9th meeting. 
Here's to being the best dressed Roost in Maryland!  Go Ravens!

Funny Poop 
  • The Lone Ranger and Tonto walked into a saloon and sat down to drink a beer. After a few minutes, a big tall cowboy walked in and said, “Who owns the big white horse outside?” 
The Lone Ranger stood up, hitched his gun belt, and said, “I do… why?” The cowboy looked at the Lone Ranger and said, “I just thought you’d like to know that your horse is about dead outside!” 
The Lone Ranger and Tonto rushed outside, and sure enough, Silver was ready to die from heat exhaustion. The Lone Ranger got the horse some water, and soon Silver was starting to look a little better. The Lone Ranger turned to Tonto and said, “Tonto, could you run around Silver and see if you can create enough of a breeze to make him start to feel better?” Tonto said, “Sure, Kemosabe” and took off running circles around Silver. Not able to do anything else but wait, the Lone Ranger returned to the saloon to finish his drink. 
A few minutes later, another cowboy struts into the saloon and asks, “Who owns that big white horse outside?” The Lone Ranger stands again, and claims, “I do; what’s wrong with him this time?” 
The cowboy looks him in the eye and says, “Nothing, but you left the Injun runnin’.”
