Run No. 1054
When 15 November 2002
Where Sungei Kadut Road, off Woodlands Road
Hares Indy and Fuzz Flyer
Occasion Indy’s and Fuzz Flyer’s Farewell Run
Deep Valley and I recently moved to a black and white out in the upper reaches of Changi Hill. As I walked through the jungly bit on my way to the car the other morning, I looked up and saw a squirrel. I smiled and he smiled. At least I think it was a smile. My teeth were showing and my cheeks were pulled up. That's a smile, isn't it? (The squirrel was definitely smiling.). Oh, the run? Yes the run, Indy and the FuzzFlyer set a rather lengthy affair, ShitFit was on in about 7:30, so was I. There was an interesting “we’re lost, sorry for trespassing on your construction site episode” fortunately, the security guy was a sport. Teacher Indy’s outa here soon, she’s not sure where she’ll be going next but I have some advise for her if she keeps teaching, never forget that children need encouragement. If a kid gets an answer right in class, tell him it was a lucky guess. That way he develops a good, lucky feeling.
The circle start gave us a start when Indy “look-a-like” ChasTITy Belt showed up in t-shirt give-away, no bra, micro mini sarong in red, complete with size 12 stilettos, and a striking resemblance to our dear departing Indy! No one seemed to notice this or comment anyway so if life deals you lemons in this way GM, why not go beat someone up with the lemons (maybe by shoving them down his throat, or not, we’re a peace loving lot after all!). Run rating? It was thought to be quite creative, though long, and quite good… I heard a few contracted the black plague, which is interesting, isn’t it?
All the virgins and visitors were next on in. LooseChange was decked out in tomboy attire tonight topped off with a newly acquired Indy-hat. One new hasher, I think may be a new member was Rub-a-nuts? Or maybe from Wednesday, she couldn’t swallow anyway.
MW: Popeye, of Tuesday fame was on in with a giant prosthetic wheener over his shoulder, he never did tell us why he was carrying that big wooden thing around so I just assumed it was a family heirloom. I remember how my great-uncle Jerry would sit on the porch and whittle wood all day long. Once he whittled me a toy boat out of a larger toy boat I had. It was almost as good as the first one, except now it had bumpy whittle marks all over it. And no paint, because he had whittled all the paint off. I still carry that ole boat around most of the time to this day. He got New Bagless for reckless endangerment of half the pack, nearly getting them all run over by the lollys. Then Barby for splashing the ladies in an ungentlemanly manner. Then Tarnished Image for calling Popeye’s horn a torch. Then LooseChange…the list went on….LC bounced about a bit, then Popeye ran out of wind…finally….He was entertainng! You know, I bet one legend that keeps recurring throughout history, in every culture, is the story of Popeye.
Thanksgiving is coming up soon and for you fellow yanks, I have some more advise. If you're at a Thanksgiving dinner, but you don't like the stuffing or the cranberry sauce or anything else, just pretend like you're eating it, but instead, put it all in your lap and form it into a big mushy ball. Then, later, when you're out back having cigars with the boys, let out a big fake cough and throw the ball to the ground. Then say, "Boy, these are good cigars!"
Gypsy appeared out of nowhere, he was the mystery mystery whip…He had G-string on in on charges of something to do with P in the paper, or P Spots vs. G Spots? You definitely had to be there. Next, Stiffy was on in as a Michael Jordan look-a-like. He was decked out in basketball bro gear that would have made Larry Bird look like he fit in! Somehow Gypsy also had Popeye’s Amex card and a receipt for $400 from some massage parlour that was found…on the run? Not sure, but an embarrassed Popeye was back on-in to retrieve the offending plastic and claimed it had gone missing for the past few weeks.
There was advertising for the Dinner and Dance which is rapidly approaching and Kamikazze was on in to promote a memorial run which all should attend for a fallen member. Also, ole PeeKing Ong is gonna be off to Whistler Mountain ski season again, and yes, I have more advise for him. Many people do not realize that the snowshoe can be used for a great many things besides walking on snow. For instance, it can be used to carry pancakes from the stove to the breakfast table. Also, it can be used to carry uneated pancakes from the table to the garbage. Finally, it can be used as a kind of strainer, where you force pancakes through the strings to see if a piece of gold got in a pancake somehow. Keep this in mind PK!
A bit later, Squire asked me why so little effort in last weeks newsletter? Sorry Squire, I’m travelling extensively of late and having a hard time keeping up with hash formalities and goings on, also, I don't pretend to have all the answers. I don't pretend to even know what the questions are. Hey, where am I? Like that anyway, hope you forgive me…
Again, busy busy, sorry, no time to elaborate.
Isn't it funny how one minute life can be such a struggle, and the next minute you're just driving real fast, swerving back and forth across the road
