Hold Everything!
: Gaash
Hares: Stroker, aided by Dead Boring
One should always beware a trail set by Marathon runners. It's bound to be a long Hash, with few breaks and little sympathy for the average Hasher who is generally more interested in the goal* rather than the journey. Clearly, however, our Hares (now Rome Marathon laureates**), have a rather low opinion of the aforementioned average Hasher because there were holds at almost every turn.
The first section*** of the run was some 4.7k and the second section 2.3k -- distances recorded accurately by Captain Caveman's super duper heart rate defibrillator vibrator -- and nothing dramatic happened during the run. Well, except that front-running Richard fell for absolutely no reason at all. We ran through a national park, a golf course and a kibbutz. Doggie Style's dog climbed up on the roof of the car. And a lot of guys had to take a whiz.
The exciting event of the day was the surprise naming of Claire and Richard, only moments before they take their leave for the cooler climes of Switzerland. As both work for Procter & Gamble, it was only natural that their Hash names reflect their esteemed employer, manufacturer of Metamucil bulk-producing laxative and Always feminine pads, with the honorifics**** Two Fingers (Richard) and Wing Man (Claire). We wish them the best of luck in presenting themselves to the Geneva Hash House Harriers.
Deliverance's having completing the Jordan Valley Triathlon was saluted during the Down-downs, with Dead Boring noting that her accomplishments (06:51:22.30) put the ordinary human Marathoners in the shade. In any case, here's to her, she's a blue, etc. etc. Fer Fox Sake did it in 06:33:00.95 and we will drink to him when he gets back from creating electronic interference with US Vice President Richard Cheney's many pacemakers.
Congratulations to the world's youngest grandmother! Well, at least the Holyland Hash House Harrier's youngest grandmama. Twin Peak's daughter Tiffany gave birth to Mason John, on May 8th at 9:46PM weighing in at 8 pounds 6 ounces (4.2k) and 21 inches (53.34 cm). Mother, the other mother and baby are all doing well.
A final note: Summer is coming and with it come the dust storms that make washing the car a philosophical point to ponder (if a car is washed and immediately re-covered with a layer of dust, was it ever clean?). Humble Scribe will resume regular weather reports as soon as the weather stabilizes at the usual summer boiling point.
** And speedy ones, at that!
*** Shock & Awe pointed out that halves are by nature equal in measure. Dead Boring's feeling was that these are Hash halves which can be any size, shape or stripe.
**** Horrific.

Kudos (and thanks) to Fer Fox Sake for a gorgeous blog posting of the Run 680 Hash Trash
and Dead Boring for his dead funny Run 681 Hash Trash
which has gained him an international fan* base, as evinced by the following message received this week. It reads:
"You have no Ikdea who I am, but I just found your Hash Blog by clicking 'Random' on a hash web ring. I just wanted to thank you for a good giggle; love those links.  And, by the way, I have been one of three or four hounds more than once here in Philadelphia, PA.  Everyone else's loss (http://morebeerforme.com) !
"On on,
