Walking Dodo

Venue :  Palmyre Estate, Flic en Flac

Hares :  Jean and Harry

Today’s trail was a record breaking route ... keep on reading (Graphic here) 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.

(Graphic here) 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 -    (Graphic here)    (Graphic here)

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!

2nd Timers:  
None !!!

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.

(Graphic here) 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 (Graphic here)

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

And special down-downs to 2 ladies with BALLS

  1. Philida ~ for being a great sport even after she broke her leg on a hash
  2. Jacqui ~ for being here today after she fell off that boring ladder

Girls you are    (Graphic here)

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

OO~OO~OO~OOH ...

Did I hear the word BLUE?

(Graphic here)

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. (Graphic here) A bit.

Luckily  we were under a huge (Graphic here)tree which helped to shelter us from the hovering rain, and we all had time to partake of Philida’s express food fiesta (Graphic here) (she prepared something at a last-minute notice) and even brought tasty sweets for dessert. Told you our Hash Harriettes were organised!

(Graphic here)

 Our next hares and next location is still a closely guarded secret ... you will have to watch this space (Graphic here) 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!
