NORTHERN BEACHES RUN # 249

COPRA DOES TURRAMURRA  AT MIMOSA OVAL
Sunday afternoon is a good time to have a Hash run. The week is behind you, Saturday you have spent putting off the chores you promised to do, Sunday morning hanging about with the papers (ipads) and having a huge breakfast.
Come Sunday afternoon it’s time for a bit of exercise, if only to tell yourself you are maintaining a healthy lifestyle.
Copra did that last weekend, and completed everything except the exercise. As he was the Hare, he co-opted his sons-in-law to set a run for him. That is quite legal, of course, but falls apart when people want to discuss the run afterwards. What can you say if you haven’t been there?
Never mind, a run was set, and quite well, too. It was shaped like a bottle, narrow at the beginning and end, as the same trail was set for the first and last kilometer. The middle bits had shiggy, which is good, many steps down, which is also good and even more steps up, which is not so good. No fools, his s-i-l. Copra had, however instructed well on the use of Bigfoot, and plenty of flour was used. There were a couple of places which did not rate Bigfoot, but that was a find it yourself deal. Only one on-back, so no messy checks or falsies to contend with. It was, however, quite a strenuous walk/run and tested those who completed the whole thing. Except Starboard, of course.
Back at the start, the sons-in-law had been dismissed, leaving Copra to collect the applause. But no, there wasn’t any bowing and taking accolades, there was only Copra sitting in that full-bodied way that he does and looking dejected. It seems that someone had complained about something that was irrelevant and nonsensical. Forget that person, Copra.
Next came the new clobber, male and female running shorts, and ladies slacks. I think they were just for ladies, as they finished above the ankles. The NBH3 appear to have been strong supporters of the various gear offered over the years, so I imagine these garments will sell well over time.
The circle involved said Copra taking the run critique in good spirit, as indeed he should have. I can’t remember if there were visitors or other persons of note for dd’s.
Next Copra was seen to be poking and prodding wieners to get them hot and offering them up in sweet and even sweeter bread rolls. Ketchup and mustard as well, of course. Perhaps not 3 star, but filling, no less.
And another chapter in the adventures of the NBH3 was completed. Even if we were 40 km from a beach. Nothing more was heard from the aforesaid sons-in-law, as presumably they will be retained until when and if they are required in the future. No point giving them swelled heads over a good run too early in the piece. Bigfoot has returned back to his lair, and will be thrown a weiner roll when next needed.
