HASH TRASH – Sunday 25th October 2009: At Juliette’s place (very nice House and Host)

Zandré is in South Africa due to back problems. Hope she’ll be back hale and hearty!!

HASH Verdict: Excellent Trail by Philida and Marie-Jo (Didn’t know there were still wild places and a jungle!! in Grand Baie).

There were not enough Down-Downs because there was not enough beer!!!!

It was a special White Hash for us to remember and to celebrate the time we all passed with David aka "Shorty".

Finally some "VIRGINS" for our Grand master to call upon:
First Timers (Hash Virgins): Muriel (Bertrand’s wife) and George Ramah (Harry’s Brother).

When our Grand Master saw some Second Timers, he was ecstatic
Second Timers: Shirley and Ralph & Sons.

This special Hash was in memory of David. His niece read to us a poem penned for him by his loving wife Juliette. We were all dressed in white in memory of David. Mike said a few words on "Shorty" (so cute) and we sang Happy Birthday for him.

Priscilla was our Sex Advisor (wait wasn’t it Religious Advisor??) for the day. Since it was a Hash by the ladies, we just had to have a Lady be the RA/SA. Maybe she is the first Lady to be our RA/SA. She was the first woman to have boldly gone where no other woman had ventured before in a hash.

She very warmly thanked Juliette. She said a few words on David; he was a bon vivant, and about how life goes on even if we have lost our loved ones. We owe it to them to keep on living.
We dedicated a minute of silence to David and the memories we each had of him. We sang "Swing Low", which is the Global "Hash Hymn" for the neophytes. (By 'We' I really mean Martin and Dodocop)

PUNISHMENTS GIVEN OUT BY OUR GRACIOUS RA/SA.

"Li cou touni" (usually refers to a chicken whose neck is twisted!)

Anyway "Li cou touni" please energize yourself. Michael aka "Li cou touni" came along not knowing that he is a front runner (as per Alan's expression). He never checked nor verified the way for the other runners and even had the guts to let the others do the work for him!! Shame on you!! No beer for you next time!! (Alan’s comment: "He bl—dy well wasn't a front running bastard – we never saw him all morning as he had had too much to drink the night before.")

A cardinal rule for Hashing (apart from having chilled Beer) is to wear hash shoes and not new ones!! Let's not forget that. Yani came with new sexy, sporty shoes. She had a down down. She had to drink beer from her new shoes!! (Have to ask her how it tasted.)

After the down-downs Priscilla invited the hares - Philida and Marie-Jo into the circle and we were all asked to pay tribute to all ladies.
