Hare Front and Centre:
Some like it long; Some like it short; Some like to run for it;
Some like a walk; Some like it hot; Some like it wet; Some like
to talk about it; Some just like to sit around and dream of past
Well, rest assured that no one was short changed on this trail.
We set off to the sound and sight of roaring waves, through wet
grass, over rocks and boulders, across rivers; in other words, all
the ingredients needed to make a worthwhile trail. The downpour
of the night and morning before provided the customary shiggy. Some
walkers chose to trust their own instinct and opted for a "short
cut" (prompted by the blazing sun) and placing all their faith
in the old adage, "All roads lead to Rome"!
Well! Well! Well! OnOn and OnOn and OnOn they went towards the Two
Bridges in the next village, missing the home sign, and braving
a sudden shower (much welcomed by some).
When they finally got back, some hardened runners were already back
at base and checking out their second beer!! Perhaps it would
be worth our while to only trust those flour blobbies on the left
hand side of the trail. Any other blobbies might lead us to Al Qaida.
As for the skivers, they had ulterior motives for staying behind;
they had spotted the spinach growing on the On On site.
Anyway, around the booze crates, the trail made for the main topic
of conversation. Is that Positive or Negative? You decide guys and
On On to Valetta!!
RA's Down's Down's:
The RA used the name of the venue, 'La Sourdine' meaning "Quiet"
to hint for silence. But it fell on sourde (deaf) ears!
So on to the punishments:-
Anand for being too gallant (smarmy for the Brits) and helping Sybille
across the river.
Geeta for being Mother duck and leading others over the walls and
far away. Luckily they all came back!
Leslie not satisfied at being captain Nimo, wanted to be a Lord
as well. Leave that chair home next time Leslie! Bring us some spinach
Smelly Blue T Shirt:
Well, it appears that it returned from Denmark but "Hot dog"
apparently does not wish to be seen in it. He thought it would make
a good impression on the Americans at the AGOA conference instead!
Be ready Mme Haberdashery. We are expecting a huge order from
The Dodo turns out to be a yo-yo moving from Daniella to Suzie and
vice versa. So guess who Daniella chose as her successor?
A big Thank You to Snow-White for doing the Hash proud again and
providing another mouth watering BBQ. Thanks a million!
