ROOPERSBEVERAGE.COM<br />

In the bustling world of liquor<br />

wholesale, one name stands<br />

out: Mike Dyer, the indomitable<br />

warehouse manager at Roopers.<br />

With his unwavering work ethic,<br />

Mike has earned a reputation<br />

for going above and beyond<br />

to serve our restaurant clients.<br />

Day in and day out, he oversees<br />

the meticulous handling of our<br />

diverse inventory, ensuring that<br />

every bottle and case is accounted<br />

for with utmost precision.<br />

Mike’s dedication to efficiency<br />

and exceptional organizational<br />

skills have streamlined our<br />

Jesse St Laurent writes: “One<br />

thing I have learned about this<br />

business is that it’s better to have<br />

help than doing it alone. Adding<br />

Mike to Roopers has truly been a<br />

blessing. Not only an honorable<br />

friend but a loyal leader. Mike’s<br />

tenacity to get things done is<br />

truly remarkable. Always willing<br />

to help and with a great team<br />

like personality Mike is a great<br />

asset to us at Roopers. Not only<br />

in our wholesale department but<br />

our entire entity. We have a lot<br />

of great things at Roopers but<br />

what means the most is people<br />

like Mike who inspire us with<br />

hard work and a smile. Love and<br />

appreciate you Mikey D!!”<br />

Thank you Mike Dyer for everything<br />

you do for Roopers, your<br />

team, and beyond!! CHEERS!<br />

Facts about summer<br />

Dog days<br />

of summer<br />

The phrase ‘dogs days of<br />

summer’ used to refer to<br />

sweltering summer days<br />

has more to do with the<br />

stars than dogs.<br />

The Roman’s ‘dies caniculares’<br />

began towards the<br />

end of July when the star<br />

Sirius (A.K.A. the Dog Star)<br />

began to rise in the sky just<br />

before the Sun.<br />

The star was so bright that<br />

the Romans believed it<br />

gave extra heat to the sun<br />

and was responsible for hot<br />

days in summer.<br />

Snow<br />

in June<br />

On June 2, 1975,<br />

snow showers<br />

forced the abandonment<br />

of several<br />

cricket matches<br />

across the country.<br />

The coldest<br />

temperature<br />

ever recorded in<br />

summer in the UK<br />

is -5.6 °C recorded<br />

on June 9, 1955 in<br />

Dalwhinnie, and<br />

again on June<br />

1 and 3, 1962 in<br />

Santon Downham<br />

in Norfolk.<br />

Height of<br />

summer<br />

Did you know<br />

that on a<br />

hot day in<br />

Paris, the Eiffel<br />

Tower grows<br />

taller?<br />

The tower is<br />

constructed<br />

from iron and<br />

when this is<br />

warmed it expands,<br />

causing<br />

the structure<br />

to grow by up<br />

to 17 cm.<br />

There was one nurse<br />

that drove George<br />

crazy. Every time<br />

she came in, she<br />

would talk to him like<br />

he was a child.<br />

In a patronizing<br />

voice she would ask,<br />

“And how are we doing<br />

this morning, are<br />

we ready for a bath,"<br />

or "Are we hungry?”<br />

Old George had<br />

enough so one day<br />

when he was having<br />

breakfast, he pulled<br />

the apple juice off<br />

the tray and set it<br />

aside to keep.<br />

Later on he had<br />

been given a bottle<br />

to fill with a urine<br />

sample. Instead of<br />

filling the bottle with<br />

urine he decided to<br />

use the apple juice.<br />

The nurse came in a<br />

while later to collect<br />

the sample, and as<br />

usual, had something<br />

to say.<br />

“My, this sample<br />

looks a little cloudy<br />

today,” the nurse<br />

said.<br />

With that, George<br />

grabbed the bottle<br />

and drank its contents.<br />

“Well, I’ll run it<br />

through again, maybe<br />

I can filter it better<br />

this time,” George<br />

snapped.<br />

What’s a forklift? Food usually.<br />

Old Snake<br />

An old snake goes to<br />

The snake comes back<br />

the doctor he’s very<br />

Doc says, “What’s the<br />

problem... didn’t the<br />

glasses help you?”<br />

“Yes, just like you said,<br />

doc,” Janet replied.<br />

“And, is the bronchitis<br />

Janet answered, “Not<br />

yet, so far the only<br />

things gone are my<br />

laptop and cellphone.”<br />

Picnic Plans<br />

Submitted by Thomas Hill<br />

Three turtles, Jack,<br />

Joe, and James, decided<br />

to go for a picnic.<br />

Now, as we all know,<br />

turtles are remarkably<br />

slow, so by the time<br />

everything was organized<br />

- sandwiches,<br />

drinks, fruit - three<br />

days had all ready<br />

gone past.<br />

They started to a place<br />

by the river where they<br />

were going to have<br />

their picnic.<br />

Three weeks later,<br />

they arrive, and they<br />

were really tired. Jack<br />

suggested to open the<br />

picnic basket and get a<br />

drink. So they opened<br />

the basket and found a<br />

bottle of cola. Unfortunately,<br />

they didn’t<br />

have the bottle opener<br />

with them; they left it at<br />

home.<br />

Jack asked Joe if<br />

he’d go back to get it<br />

for them. He refused,<br />

saying it was a long<br />

journey back.<br />

They asked, and<br />

asked, and eventually,<br />

he agreed on the<br />

condition that Jack and<br />

James didn’t touch<br />

the food while he was<br />

gone. As hungry as<br />

they were, they agreed<br />

to Joe’s condition, and<br />

off he went.<br />

Two days later, still no<br />

Joe, a week later, still<br />

no Joe.<br />

Jack turns to James<br />

and says, “We need to<br />

With hesitation on going<br />

back on their word,<br />

they get a sandwich<br />

each and start eating.<br />

Just then, who should<br />

appear from behind<br />

a bush, but Joe. Jack<br />

and James looked at<br />

him in disbelief.<br />

He looked at Jack and<br />

James enjoying the<br />

sandwich and said,<br />

“Well, just for that, I’m<br />

Submitted by Trevor Saunders<br />

The basketball<br />

coach storms into<br />

the university president’s<br />

office and<br />

demands an immediate<br />

raise.<br />

The president says,<br />

“But you already<br />

make more than<br />

anyone else in our<br />

entire athletic<br />

department.”<br />

The coach says angrily,<br />

“Maybe so, but<br />

you don’t know what<br />

I have to put up with<br />

every single day.<br />

Watch this...”<br />

With that the coach<br />

goes into the hall<br />

and grabs one of the<br />

basketball players<br />

who is jogging down<br />

the hallway.<br />

He said to him, “Run<br />

over to my office and<br />

see if I’m there.”<br />

Twenty minutes later<br />

the player comes<br />

back, covered in<br />

sweat and breathing<br />

heavily.<br />

The basketball player<br />

says to the coach,<br />

“You’re not there,<br />

sir.”<br />

The president<br />

scratches his head<br />

as he says, “Oh, I<br />

see what you mean.<br />

I would have called<br />

and not run.”<br />

Sometimes I tell fish jokes just for the halibut.<br />

Want it Now<br />

Submitted by Pam Ashby<br />

My friend’s bakery burned down last night. Now his business is toast.<br />

A man buys a Powerball<br />

ticket and wins<br />

the lottery. He goes<br />

to claim his money<br />

and the clerk verifies<br />

his winning number.<br />

The man says, “Here<br />

is my ticket. I would<br />

like my $524 million,<br />

please.”<br />

The clerk replied,<br />

“No, sir. It doesn’t<br />

work that way. We<br />

give you the first<br />

million dollars today<br />

and then you’ll get<br />

the rest spread out<br />

over the next 19<br />

years.”<br />

The man, annoyed,<br />

says, “Oh, no. I want<br />

all my money right<br />

now! I won it, and I<br />

want it.”<br />

Again the clerk patiently<br />

explains that<br />

he would only get<br />

one million dollars<br />

that day and the<br />

rest over the next 19<br />

years.<br />

The man, furious<br />

with the clerk,<br />

screams out, “I<br />

WANT MY MONEY!<br />

If you’re not going<br />

to give me my $524<br />

million right now,<br />

then you’d better go<br />

right into that cash<br />

register and refund<br />

me the $2 that it cost<br />

me to buy the ticket<br />

in the first place!”<br />

Things to do before summer ends<br />

Go on a Camping Trip<br />

Visit a Water Park<br />

Go to a Drive- in Theater<br />

Have a memorable summer<br />

They suddenly come<br />

to a muddy patch in<br />

the road and don’t<br />

stop in time, so the<br />

car becomes bogged<br />

down and stuck.<br />

After a few minutes<br />

of trying to get the<br />

car out by themselves,<br />

they see a<br />

young farmer coming<br />

down the lane,<br />

driving some oxen in<br />

front of him.<br />

The young farmer<br />

stops when he sees<br />

the couple in trouble<br />

and offers to use the<br />

oxen to pull the car<br />

out of the mud for<br />

$50. The husband<br />

accepts and a few<br />

minutes later the car<br />

is free.<br />

Afterward, the farmer<br />

says to the husband,<br />

“You know, you’re<br />

the tenth car I’ve<br />

helped out of the<br />

mud today.”<br />

The husband looks<br />

around at the fields<br />

and asks the farmer,<br />

“When do you have<br />

time to plow your<br />

land? At night?”<br />

The young farmer<br />

says, “Oh no. Night<br />

is when I put the<br />

water in the hole.”<br />

Two wifi engineers got married. The reception was fantastic.<br />

leaving only the<br />

foundation and first<br />

floor.<br />

A silver-haired farm<br />

lady was seen sitting<br />

dazed, in a bathtub.<br />

It was the only<br />

remaining part of the<br />

house left above the<br />

floor.<br />

The rescue squad<br />

rushed to her aid<br />

and found her<br />

unhurt. She was<br />

just sitting there in<br />

the tub, talking to<br />

herself.<br />

“It was the most<br />

amazing thing … it<br />

was the most amazing<br />

thing,” she kept<br />

repeating dazedly.<br />

“What was the most<br />

amazing thing,<br />

Ma’am?” asked one<br />

of the rescuers.<br />

What’s the difference between ignorance and apathy? I don’t know and I don’t care.<br />

Looking to Buy or Sell? I look forward to working with you NEXT.<br />

“PERSONABLE, PROFESSIONAL, SEAMLESS AND VERY DETAIL ORIENTED!<br />

Working with Cindy on the purchase of our land was incredibly seamless. She went above and<br />

beyond with making sure the land suited our needs. She was timely, professional, and thought<br />

out every case scenario to make sure we were well prepared and educated. We are so happy<br />

with our experience and highly recommend Cindy to anyone who is looking to buy or sell.”<br />
