Nanny and the Fox Terrier
Well this shaped to be interesting – Nanny started by giving Phantom a map of a dull walk around the lake –about as interesting as a tongue kiss from Colonel . Phantom protested (read spat the dummy ) and the Fox Terrier produced a map of the run itself. Although Nanny had a spit too as he claimed Walkers ruined the run FAKE NEWS!!!!
Walkers Care !!
Looking at the map with all it’s FTs and a few checks Phantom reckoned this run would be a candidate for Run o’ Year –how wrong can one be?
Started with a loop and then an FT and Walkers held back so as not to “root the run”
From here on markings (including Pembo look alikes) were often difficult to find being on footpath one minute and curb the next and sometimes apparently not at all .
The pack (Walkers and Runners )was together as we negotiated a trip wire into the park .
Here a cunning FT put the Runners further into the park to a check . PHANTOM’s PHABULOUS PHOLLOWERS (PPP) with aid of said map walked thru the FT to pop up in front of the Runners or so we thought .Apparently in the dark checking was to say the least ,average ,and the pack began to split into Quick ,Slow and Don’t Care
The Walkers ,now well in front of the disoriented Runners proceeded up the hill into Karrinyup but at this stage the Runners were not in sight.
PPP decided to wait a bit for catch up but dissention grew –Some decided to go straight back to the Bucket in case those bastard Runners were lost and back drinking all the piss and eating the chips The Magnificent 7 (of PPP) kept going before Budgie dethroned King Phantom and lead the Magnificent 7 home but on the way Mumbles took a dive and landed on his head so no damage done
The PPP took just over an hour and Runners about 90 minutes
As I said it had makings of a top run but marred by not enough clear marking ,a bit too long for those over 60 and piss poor checking.
Bloody good night though with oodles of Noodles
