Weekly Poop 9/12/18

Roost #44 Poop
·         From the Prez
PLEASE READ THIS CAREFULLY: The House Committee met to discuss ways to improve the flow and service at our monthly meetings.  If you want to have dinner at OC 360 at our Roost meetings, please be advised that you need to order dinner in the bar or dining room BEFORE the meeting.  We WON'T be taking food orders during our Roost meeting.  Only drink orders.  If you order dinner that is not ready by the time the meeting begins, your order will be brought in, but again, NO food orders will be taken during the meeting.  OC 360 has generously offered to have modest snacks on the tables for us at the meeting.  So, if you want to have dinner at OC 360, please come early enough to have dinner BEFORE the meeting.

Please think about stepping up to volunteer for Board and Officer positions and the Golf Scholarship Committee next year.  Don't hesitate to contact me if you have any questions about the responsibilities for any of these positions. or 410-598-4597.

Remember that your Roost Membership card entitles you to a 20% discount on food, beverage & apparel purchases at the Original Greene Turtle (116th St.).  We encourage all Roost members and committees to patronize the Original Greene Turtle! 

Remember that we collect plastic grocery bags at every Roost meeting.  These bags are used by Diakonia (Local Food Bank & Homeless Shelter) to distribute food contributions to the needy.  My white Ford pickup truck is parked in front of OC 360 at every Roost meeting.  Simply put your plastic bags (tied up tightly) in the bed of the truck.  This is a great way to recycle plastic bags for a good cause.

Funny Poop
·         A friend and I were golfing one day when at the 18th hole this guy comes out of nowhere and asks if he could join us.  I tell him, "Well, we're just about done but if you want to join us tomorrow you can.  We start at 8 o'clock."
He said, "Great! I'll be here at 8 o'clock, maybe 8:10..."

So next day he shows up at 8 o'clock and plays scratch golf; he was good.  We were going to play again the next day and we invited him to join us.  He said, "Great! I'll be here at 8 o'clock, maybe 8:10..."

So the next day he shows up at 8 o'clock, plays with his opposite hand, and shoots under par!  I'm a bit amazed with this guy so I ask him, "You're a pretty good golfer, beating us with scratch golf and then showing-off by playing just as good with your opposite hand.  Just what is you secret?"

He said, "Well...when I wake up in the morning and my wife is lying on her left side, I play left-handed.  Or when I wake up in the morning and my wife is laying on her right side, I play right-handed."

So I ask, "what if she is laying on her back?"

"That's when I get here at 8:10."
