Hashit for Skidmark
"SHAGPILE'S WURDZ WILL APPEAR HERE SOON".
But no: let down I was. Cameroon is right. Give 'em a dose of National Service at the age of 60, that'll knock into shape. [Actually I think DC said 16 ....Ed]
Or so it appeared. Lo and behold it seems I may have misjudged the chap. He is not as disrespectful of his fellow hashers as I thought. He obviously went straight home and worked through the night on a Tweet. And this is it, as published on his personal corner of the Receding Hareline:
Fantastic run yesterday at Rowney Warren - and a fair turn out as well. On On to the Green Dragon
A masterpiece: concise, thoughtful, but punchy, with a hint of understatement in a contemporary tale told in a traditionally timeless style.
My apologies Shagpile, I should have known you wouldn't do a G-String and let your fans down.
I'm still trying to work out whether I have been slagged off or praised by our Illustrious Scribe! But in mitigation for my tardiness, can I just point out that yesterday I was out all day doing my 2nd reccee for 999/1000 with Bangers. Unpaid and unthanked for this onerous task that involved visiting several pubs in Norfolk/Suffolk, haggling over food prices and checking the lie-of-the-land. Of course I could have stayed at home and writ The Wurdz which may have referred to the number of mutts on the run being Lily, Rainbooooow and Madge which makes 3 by my Casio fx-61F.
CLARIFICATION: You were being slagged off for dereliction of duty, which may have been a minor offence in the Navy but 'round here ....Scribe (but 9/10 for mutt counting accuracy; it would have been 10 but some count Madge as one with Bangers)
Bell End back with babe
Skippy as "Shy Grace" ....
... G-String with "Not so Shy Grace"
