RUN NO. 2192
Anyhow, me wee chickadees… we all arrived to Lower Diplo on a very very overcast day to find many of our hashers back from holidays and rearing to go. It was good to see everyone coming back nice and safe after their holidays abroad and ladies catching up on all the news.
Claire our front horn started us all off at 5.15pm and away we went. Up the road and in to the jungle and down down to our first wee river crossing – where most people went straight through up to your shins and some tentatively used some old trees across the wee river. One of our first time guests called Honey was assisted across with some coaxing but finally made the plunge into the water and across ….
The hash was lovely and as I was at the rear with Jane chatting away.. we missed the checks but I do believe that Trailblazer discovered the first and I think Ready Mix was on to the next one, not sure about third check sorry. Speaking of Trailblazer….. I also believe she decided to have her evening bath in one of the river pools and had a few hashers concerned when they discovered her wallowing in the water ….. must have been cold!! I was assured she had removed her front pouch with phone etc in and was enjoying her bath!!
The hash contained something for everyone, .. water crossings, mud, trees to traverse, mud, hills, mud, lovely jungle, oh and some mud. Few slippery experiences but all out safe and sound by probably about 6.30ish. It was a really good run and I enjoyed Lower Diplo which I haven’t done for a while.
Then on to the shout up and down down to our hares for a great hash. A welcome to two guests – Meryl (great to see ya finally made it) and Honey (wonderful he/she dog belonging to our lovely Aunty Lynn…)
Then welcome a new member – YAYYYYYY – Rebecca…. You have the rules now so no excuse when it comes to hashit.
We had our very own Speedo deliver us a special joke via Not Yet…
After very quick announcements it was time for hashit….. but alas no one this week!!
Amazing food was provided by our hares but……. Our lovely Duchess had departed earlier with the plates and cutlery still in her car…. So she was contacted and returned with eating implements and away we went!!!
Thank you to our hares for your run and food!!!ed once received.

RUN NO. 2191
After brooding over the words all day, here they are:
A larger clutch of hens than we’ve had in the past 6 weeks flocked together tonight, after so many who had flown the coop to go sunny side up returned home to roost. The sign waiting for us from the hens who laid the run certainly ruffled a few feathers with its ominous “very wet and slippery, there are hills, you have been warned” message.
‘Who will help me carry the horn?’ asked our little red hen. Most were too chicken, but Readymix and Trailblazer took up the challenge. We continued clucking about until Readymix egged us on by squawking the horn right on time, then off into the jungle we flew.
The more flighty hens rushed off on the paper pellet trail to first check, which was a back check nuggetted out by Ruthless Pursuit. Second check required a bit more scratching about but was finally found by the well seasoned Magic Roundabout. The very plucky Readymix completed the final check and, after scrambling up a steep climb with some wobbly knees, everyone was out.
Back at the henhouse, the shout up began with a big cheer for the hares. Duchess preened as she was congratulated on her upcoming birthday – her spring chicken status never in doubt. There was a real pecking order for the special awards, with Kellie on 50, Peahen on 350, and Cheryl on 400 – something to really crow about!
Announcements took a more somber tone with the sad news that Velma’s brother passed away. Our thoughts go out to her.
Jane mentioned an away trip to Temburong at the end of the month, Not Yet is a grandmother, and kids hash is on this weekend. We all cracked up after Alice in Wonderland’s Frog Prince joke. Beluga and Not Yet shared some examples of how easy it is to get egg on your face when speaking in English.
Then it was time for hashit. Knowing that the early bird catches the worm, Diva had had a stickybeak at the sign-in board and plucked out two offenders. We all crowed when it was revealed that Serene had not signed in and Not Yet and not signed out.
The food was, of course, finger licking good. It was a very pleasant night, with the last hardy hens finally departing when the sky started falling.
Don’t worry, next time I might shell out on some new jokes!

RUN NO. 2190
There was a telephone call from the hares, saying to go back at second check; sounded good to me. It was so hot and humid, not pleasant for a delicate flower such as myself!
Magic sounded the horn and off we went. Pleasant trails, made me remember the time I was rescued by Sid and Lone Ranger. I was with an Indian lady and we were so far behind everyone else and it began to get dark, so of course we became slower and slower. Eventually this lady told me she hoped to get out soon because she had an operation in the morning. I asked her what kind of operation she was having and she told me, ‘Oh no my dear, I am the surgeon!’
Eventually we heard voices and out of the gloom came Fletcher Rescue Inc. bearing torches and 100+. They got us out and we trudged back to the on-on to celebrate with the ‘librarians’.
That wasn’t going to happen to me this time, although later, according to Madam Sin and Smurf, it almost happened to the hares.
Anyway, the hash was fine, very pretty in parts; a couple of water crossings, a bit of mud, a bit of slipping down slopes and puffing up hills. Well done ladies, a good hash despite your hassles.
I suppose because there weren’t that many of us, we ended up sitting in a big circle, a bit like girl guides. Not that many girl guides swig beer or gin and tonic but you know what I mean!
Ruthless Pursuit started off the shout-up with the hares, who told us we were lucky not to have done Friday’s hash (at the same site), an arduous ordeal by all accounts.
There were no special runs to celebrate and nearly no entertainment until Psycho remembered a joke. It was about computers, but I am not sure I understood it! Then Alice told us about a 24hour breast-feeding hot-line. Very useful information for those of us in that situation, thankfully not me!
Back to Psycho, who announced she is looking for a house and Alice, who has a friend selling furniture. It all happens at the Ladies Hash!
Hash Shit time found Clover, Christine and Duchess charged with flower violations. Clover and Christine were watered for their crime!
The shout up ended and delicious laksa was provided by the hares. Thanks ladies for the food and the run.
NEXT RUN: Spg 378 Sg Akar - water tower opp rubbish dump
HARES: Alison/Cheryl/Sue & Duchess

RUN NO. 2189
A short distance down the trail, Kelly was found standing with one hand full of paper and the other clutching the horn. When asked if the check had been found, she said yes but wasn't sure if it was being laid through. So the three short cutting amigos, offered to go and make sure this was being done and just as they were beginning to wonder where the hash had gone, they were almost knocked over by Ruthless Pursuit.
She was doing a great impression of a hound as she had dashed off to the on paper and then rushed back to lay the check through. What a woman! This was in fact the only check and from then on it was a good run out to the tent and as some people are desperately fit, they decided to go round the run again for the extra calorie burn.
At the shout up there were 3 guests (minus one who had left early actually - Emma), Rachel and Jenny were welcomed and Tis Alice (in Wonderland ) told 2 more, funny jokes and then we were served delicious food and another ladies night drew to a close under a cloudless sky. On on.
NEXT RUN: 10 AUGUST
