Run 2714- Wagon at Brown Park, Swan View

The run directions were easy to follow with the added advantage that Crayfish was driving so I didn’t have to know the way: –


Proceed North on Roe Highway, turn right onto Morrison Road continue to Amherst Road turn right – Look For Feet

☒ There were ample parking places so those challenged with that skill could easily be accommodated.

☒ There were plenty of lights.

☒ There didn’t appear to be a lot of shelter, but now the awning has been erected several times that was now an option for the erection experts.

I set off with the walkers then joined the runners at Eldwick Loop heading north, although the pace was 14 minutes a km so one could keep up when walking. Later the pace picked up to sub 10-minute k’s.

Then right into Churchill Drive and meandered north until Willoughby Way where we headed west. The views of Perth in the distance were stunning.

Clever use of territory found us heading back past Swan View Senior High School. Eventually crossing the playing field east of Amherst Road.

A well-set run by experienced hares which kept the pack together.

Gumby didn’t get to sing any down-down songs.

Polly spoke about Ace and the flowers that the club sent to the nurse (Isobella Oats) who was a great help liaising with the St John Ambulance (via 000) when they wouldn’t give me much information, as well as using her nursing skills to help Ace. Isobella lives adjacent the street that Ace fell on.

Polly also spoke about Dick Tracy’s gall bladder operation and that he didn’t have septicaemia. He is on the mend and should be back at hash next week for Bushie’s Birthday Bash run.

Pembo was interrupted several times by planes flying low as the prepared to land at Perth Airport. Wagon was criticised for not arranging for a lull in plane movements to coincide with our hash circle.

Pembo then told a great joke about a Rabbi and a Catholic Priest that nobody had heard before.

Priest and Rabbi

A priest and a rabbi were having lunch and the priest asked, “Have you ever strayed from not eating pork?” The rabbi said, “Well, once, but there was absolutely nothing else to eat, so I had a ham sandwich.”

Then the rabbi asked the priest, “Did you ever stray from your vow of celibacy?” The priest said, “Yes, just once.”

And the rabbi said, “Sure beats a ham sandwich, doesn’t it?”

Maybe he will tell this one next time?

A priest, a minister, and a rabbi decided to go skinny dipping…

Suddenly, they saw three women walking towards them. Each was a member of their flocks. The priest and the minister covered their privates with their hands and closed their eyes waiting for the agony to end.
After the women walked away they noticed the rabbi had covered his face and not his nether regions. He said, “My flock recognizes my face. What kinda sermons do you give?”

The run was awarded 8.3 points after a long and confusing (to me) method of arriving at this total. Q kept note of the running total as points were added and subtracted for various reasons which I can’t remember.

The food was served, and it was meatloaf with salad consisting of lettuce, tomatoes, cheese, onion on a bread roll. Very tasty. And very kind to next week’s hare (me) who’s duties include washing the cups, plates and pots used. That would have been fine until Xmas decided they could all go in one tub thus spilling the dregs from the down-down cups all over the plates which were dry at that point!

A great night wouldn’t be dead for quids.
