Note for hashers: This is not a regular website, it is a 'blog'. This means that the last postings always come up on top. Remember that if you want to post something here there is a nice way of doing it; email directly to waltervp.hhh123@blogspot.com and it will appear here within minutes! Please only use text email, fancy html style email does not work well at all, and neither do images! This email address mention will disappear soon before we get spammed!

I am on holidays with relatives, camping etc.... just visiting a library now, wasting valuable drinking time.

The Drambuie Tradition

For those bemused DHHH tonkers who wondered why they were forced to sip Drambuie with the visitors from Burnie Hash, here is the story. I wouldn’t have bothered before, but now I know that at least one of you can read. (hello, GoneAgain!!!). Thanks to all those tasty leather clad lads and lassies for helping to farewell my favourite pussy – perhaps this is a tradition you may care to share?

On On


The Drambuie Tradition

In the early years of Burnie Hash, any Hasher whose long suffering consort produced offspring would be expected to provide a bottle of Drambuie to share in the circle.

During the eighties Drambuie was a relatively common occurrence, as the membership was copious and the young hunky Burnie Harriers (and some of the ugly ones as well) reproduced in record numbers.

It’s a well recognised offering from the Hashstatisticians that the Hashing population’s average age is increasing, even if we are still refusing to grow up.

In recent times Drambuie occasions have been virtually extinct, so in desperation the new Hash Lip of 2006 took extreme measures. It was announced that any Hasher who had a death in the family would provide a bottle of the good stuff for the circle.

The announcement was sensitively delivered at the first circle after the passing of Ratchet and Speed Hump’s father in 2006, and an available bottle of fine wine from Urang’s unsupervised cellar was necessarily substituted for the purposes of immediacy.

As it was that very same Hash Lip’s cat which recently shuffled off, it seemed appropriate for family pets to be included in the tradition.

Burnie Hash bade Monty the cat a fond farewell at Hash circle on Sunday 14th January last, and miraculously enough of the bottle remained to share this fine tradition with the stayers of Devonport Hash the following night.

Vale Monty Munden

A pussy for all seasons - departed the last of his nine lives January 13th 2007.

My great friend Monty was a fine example of his Oriental breed; tall, elegant, faintly striped charcoal with almost constant conversation and a magnificent voice. Many of his personality traits were those to which his owner aspires; a seeker of warmth and comfort, a passion for singing loudly out of tune late at night, an appreciation of native birdlife, and the preservation of an aristocratic demeanour balanced with a healthy dose of rough.

During his 12 odd years, Monty conducted a great deal of first-hand research:
the causes of allergic reactions to felines in humans
flea collars and how to lose them
the habitat of the mixomatosis flea
internal parasites, where to find them and how to share them around
fine furniture and its efficacy as a scratching post
carpet staining techniques using blood, fur, feathers and the green wobbly bit
the rising cost of snakebite treatments
administration of medication for beginners (funnel and first aid kit included)

He was a member of The Dismemberment Society, the Canine Offence League, the Fel-Harmonic Choir, and held a Gold Frequent Shopper card at Uncle Roger’s Veterinary Practice.

Monty welcomed all comers to our home by occupying their lap, pumbling delightedly with claws fully extended and purring like a Lamborghini. Not everyone appreciated this, but they all remembered him and they, like me, will miss that welcome next time they come through our doorway.

If you manage to get in there feel free to register (it is my own hosted site and not affilliated to baddies) and post a picture yourself.

As for the amzingly well hidden controls.:

The third icon from the left that looks like a 'next scene' of a movie set starts the slide show, and the 3rd from the right, that looks like a little printer is an 'email current picture as an e-postcard'.

Clever Harriette...

There was a hasher who had worked hard all of his life and was a real miser when it came to his money. He loved money more than just about anything, and just before he died, he said to his wife, now listen, when I die, I want you to take all my money and place it in the casket with me. I wanna take my money to hash afterlife."

So he got his harriette to promise him with all her heart that when he died, she would put all the money in the casket with him.

Well, one day he died. He was stretched out in the casket, and the harriette was sitting there in black next to her closest friend. When they finished the ceremony, just before the undertakers got ready to close the casket, the wife said "Wait just a minute!"
She had a shoe box with her, she came over with the box and placed it in the casket. Then the undertakers locked the casket down and rolled it away. Her friend said, "I hope you weren't crazy enough to put all that
money in the casket." She said, "Yes, I promised. I'm a good hasher, I can't lie. I promised him that I was going to put that money in that casket with him."

You mean to tell me you put every cent of his money in the casket with him?"

I sure did," said the wife. "I got it all together, put it into my account and I wrote him a cheque."

Monday 8 January change of venue

Rumour has it that we are running from Crow's place at Ulverstone!

Poxy might get a down down after this happened:

GoneAgain walks into Canoe and Surf, gets the ordered roofrack bits and pieces straight from Poxy. Lovely shop assistant at the check-out asked if the bags belonged together. 'Yes' I replied. She charged me for one of the parts. GoneAgain smiles, paid, and walked out.

If anyone needs to check their staff get GoneAgain in to test-drive them! Cheap rates for Hashers!
