The Hash with Rey’s kaftan.
Margaret Dasivla: an Australian who said she’d return next year.
Norbert from Swaziland – a veteran of 120 hashes in Swaziland
Parvez – from Mauritius – hurrah! – definitely coming
back – double hurrah!!
Fanny’s cousin Mr B. All. The Grandmaster drank to his health
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 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
Clarence: “Exocet” for his stealth capability, astonishing
speed and amazing accuracy.
Tom: “Tinker” as he gets to tinker with “Tinkerbell’s”
Claude: “ “The Wrestler” for his manly exertions with
Leslie-Ann gave Stefan the dodo happily and a kiss somewhat more demurely.
A future heart-breaker, I suspect.
