On On.

It looked as though Rey had set this trail a few days ago with the assistance of 2 small dogs each with serious bowel problems. Stay with this, people. The one, seriously constipated, could only squeeze out from time to time a small pellet, now dry crusty and white, as generally happens to dog poo, such was the lack of flour on the majority of the trail. The other, poor fellow, plainly had Montezuma’s revenge on a grand scale judging from the large white splodges which, for obvious reasons, were very few and far between. One advantage of the scarcity of markings was that the pack generally stayed together trying to find out where to go next. This was more a hack ‘n’ hike hash, through tall grass and deep scrub. Rey does seem to like thick bush. It was peaceful and quiet…in other words hardly anyone was calling “On on”. There should be a rolling echo of “On on” up and down the trail like the rising and falling of the waves upon the sand or the echo and re-echo of happy Austrian nuns. So shout out loud and stand out proud!!
Still, it fair takes one’s breath away to emerge from the undergrowth and be faced with a magnificent erection like the Midlands Dam. The run home took us along the top of the dam and back to the On On in the car-park. Waiting to welcome us back were a few of the walkers, including Blob, slightly more unwilling to blow his bugle this time after putting his lips to it and discovering the hard way that the cat had pee’ed in it. Rey took his Hare down-down dressed in his present from Dubai, an orange kaftan. Just the thing for El Diablo, eh Rey?

The continuing saga of Jimmy.
Are you sitting comfortably, then I’ll begin. Once upon a time there was a man called Jimmy. Jimmy was from Scotland. Jimmy had a neighbour called James. James was from England. One day Jimmy and James disagreed about who should have an egg. Jimmy kicked James in the balls as hard as he could, which made Jimmy so happy that he didn’t care about the egg anymore and lived happily ever after.

The Smelly Blue.
Ye Gods! This is in danger of becoming stylish! Varun returned with Betty Boo drawn on one buttock, and a picture of her on the rear of the shirt as well…but seriously, awesomely, frighteningly well-done. All those of us who had planned, if given the thing, just to clean the toilet with it, or, better yet, leave it out for Blob’s cat, had better think again. So no pressure on Ruth then, who, for reasons unknown, received the thing.

The newly (re)appointed RA – um, can’t remember his name. He wasn’t very funny, and, frankly, I can’t remember much about him at all.
He awarded down-downs to the Grandmaster for being a Scot and also to me for calling “Harriettes” “Hashettes” in a previous write-up, although this heinously unjust and unfair show of intolerance did not in any way influence my independence in saying that he wasn’t very funny.

Clarence: “Exocet” for his stealth capability, astonishing speed and amazing accuracy.
Tom: “Tinker” as he gets to tinker with “Tinkerbell’s” bell.
Claude: “ “The Wrestler” for his manly exertions with the Hustler.

Children’s Award
Leslie-Ann gave Stefan the dodo happily and a kiss somewhat more demurely. A future heart-breaker, I suspect.
