HASH TRASH - RUN 673

HASH TRASH - RUN 673
Oh Sandy
Place: Ramat HaSharon
Hare: Dr. Do-little

Humble Scribe once again absented herself from the run, but was told it took place on a beautiful day near the Tennis Center in Ramat HaSharon. According to reports, "Dr. Doolittle set a Hash through hill and dale -- and neighborhoods. He accompanied the runners part of the way, then short cut back with the walkers.
"There was some confusion as to the markings and crossing of arrows, H's and blobs of flour. Apparantly, the sprinklers around the Tennis Center and a leaf blowing lawn crew messed up part of the trail."
Another source deemed the run "sandy" but added that was good. This would corroborate the Hare's statement to Humble Scribe, "Too bad you're going to miss it. It's a good run."
THE CHILDREN OF ABRAHAM - SMALL AND BLUE
The halfway point song was "Father Abraham". Humble Scribe has been wondering about the origins of this song for some time. It turns out to be the handiwork of one Pierre (Petrum Antonius Laurentius) Kartner, a Dutch musician. According to Wikipedia, Karnter, who actually sings under the alias Father Abraham (or Vader Abraham, if you're Dutch), "was born on April 11, 1935 in Elst. He started his singing career at the age of eight, by winning a local festival. Together with the band Corry & de Rekels, they sold over 1 million records (LP's) in the 1960s. He created his well known alter ego, Father Abraham, after writing a Dutch Carnaval song, called 'Father Abraham Had Seven Sons'. He at first used a fake beard, but a real beard replaced this, and would remain as his trademark.'
Now comes a weird twist. "In May 1977, Kartner was asked to make a promotional song for an animated movie, which turned out to be about The Smurfs. The record company pressed 1,000 copies, since they where unsure about the success of the single. However, they were all sold within one day at a Schlager festival. After a repress, 400,000 singles where sold in a short period. A full Smurfs album (LP) was then created, which also climbed the charts, with 500,000 sold copies... He scored a number one hit in 16 countries. Altogether, his Smurf works have about 30 million sold copies (albums and singles). Kartner continues to be musically active."

In another weird twist, Father Abraham also composed a song entitled "Smurfing Beer" ("Beer, beer, Smurfing Beer / You don't get drunk and it isn't dear"). To hear the whole song, go to: http://www.sideload.com/cb/track/?id=127218. A catchy tune. Could this become another Kartner-penned Hash classic?

AND... TO ROME WITH LOVE
We all wish Dead Boring and Stroker our best as they set forth to participate in the Rome Marathon this weekend. The run "offers you an incredible opportunity to satisfy your goals as an athlete and tourist" but we suggest they leave off gawking at the Colosseum for a good four hours (or less) on March 18th and do us proud. Good luck and On-on!
