Venue : Palmyre Estate, Flic en Flac
Hares : Jean and Harry
Today’s trail was a record breaking route … keep on reading and all will be revealed … we had lovely blue skies and crisp marine air, plenty of track to cover and gorgeous mountain and sea sightings.
So … in the beginning … even before starting off into the wild blue yonder … the fun started with Martin’s dog Roxy who decided that the centre of the circle would be a great place to leave her mark, as you can see – pictures speak a thousand words –
THANKS to … Our Cellar Master / Beer Bearer Dave and Juliette who came all the way from the north AGAIN … to save the hashers once more from that dreaded “dry throat disease” … dropping off THE BEER en route to a wedding … and for Dave’s fundraising efforts that added considerably to our survival fund!
1 st Timers:
Giselle and David (Mru)
So consequentially, our Supremous Blobus got blamed for this Grim Misconduct and being the honourable GM he had to down a beer … with taste and decorum in his YMCA Hard Hat.
Our RA for the day was none other than our Trailmaster camouflaged as a Technicolor Hagar with dodo-bones around his neck … doing the daunting deed of dishing out the down-downs in the absence of Peter who was downing vodka in outer Russia many miles away …
THE MYSTERY OF THE DODO BONES
At closer inspection the GM saw some bones with teeth
And so our RA Ornithologist quizzed WHY dodos did not have teeth?
Because it would make them fall
from the sky
for a toothed dodo would be
too heavy to fly …
and I thought dodos couldn’t fly anyway so why can’t they have teeth?
And what do you call a fly without wings … ? A WALK!!!!!
Hee hee hee hee hee !
So where was I? Oh yippee doodle dee, our RA decided that the crime for the day was going to be for being … BORING … so he boringly set out to unmask all the boring hashers from the round circle that he could lay his boring hands on!
So here’s to the BORING
- TEACHER ~ Martin, for having the boring excuse of too many papers to mark
- SCOTSMAN ~ Captain Nemo
- GRAND MASTER ~ Supremous Boring Blobus for wanting to keep the down-down-list SHORT!
- HUSBAND – Bob Russell, for fixing boring leaking pipes in the shed while Jacqui was falling off the ladder …
And special down-downs to 2 ladies with BALLS
- Philida ~ for being a great sport even after she broke her leg on a hash
- Jacqui ~ for being here today after she fell off that boring ladder
Girls you are
Our GM decided to end this boredom by daring the hares to a double d for the RECORD 9 km hash … here’s to the longwinded hares, they’re so BLUE
Did I hear the word BLUE?
And there he was … finally after so many turmoils and having grown roots in Bob’s garden, our long-forgotten friend the Smelly Blue … came forth (or fifth or sixth) … out of the blue – Bob felt he was filling the Smelly B inadequately and thought that HARRY would fill it up more adequately for being such a GENTLEMAN – so Harry got showered with beer while he had to drink it
dressed in Smelly Blue and drenched with that dreaded beer for extra smelliness … and right then it started raining too. A bit.
Luckily we were under a huge tree which helped to shelter us from the hovering rain, and we all had time to partake of Philida’s express food fiesta (she prepared something at a last-minute notice) and even brought tasty sweets for dessert. Told you our Hash Harriettes were organised!
Our next hares and next location is still a closely guarded secret … you will have to watch this space for more juicy details within the next fortnight.
I guess I gotta go now …
So .. until next time
Move it, shake it, groove it, smoothe it
Keep smiling – dream big and fly high!
