Non Run 1 (due to Covid-19 restrictions)

I hash, you hash, we hash……….

Public Health warning I: when things get to such an extreme, you either laugh or cry. I choose the former, I hope you do too. If not, do not read on, this is not for you………………..

Heavens to Murgatroyd haven’t things gone a bit lairy! It’s been likened to conditions during the Second World War. Luckily enough I didn’t live through that period, but having once shared a night in a village hall in Dorset with Pis’t’man, I think I have a fair idea of what it was like.

Hashing by design is a communal activity, so in extremis and in isolation the inveterate hasher may be feeling a little lost. So here’s a sideways glance at the world today……

  • As a seasoned home worker, I can now see from the frenzied activity of the rejuvenated PH3 App that everyone has quickly grasped the concepts of ‘shirking’ from home.
  • Mentioning that App, I assume that anyone trying to actually ‘work’ from home, has found the ‘Mute’ button!
  • Given that 94% of all the content on this now popular app – is emoji quizzes, I suggest that when the world turns once more – Robic can extract a few pennies more from the quiz-addled PH3?
  • Of course, by working at home, statistically the chance of an office romance has gone up, while the risk of offending ‘the other half’ has gone down. Assuming of course that both partners are working from the same home…….
  • But, the TV schedules are less fun than they used to be, Hancock’s half hour usually ends with an exhortation to wash your hands and there’s not a Sid James laugh to be heard.  Meanwhile the 5pm schedule remains resolutely unchanged, it was always Pointless – just now with Boris rather than Alexander Armstrong.
  • And its amazing what >400,000 people are prepared to volunteer for, just to get out of the house,  after only three days confided to home!
  • I learned this week that Gingerly Rogers has a cracking pair of leg-ings! Sorry John it rueing the opportunity missed to contract on the new NHS Nightingale Excel(lent) hospital. And the less said about Venus’ cock the better.
  • It’s better to be six foot apart rather than six foot under and when the current Mrs Hawkeye frees herself up from remote supervising 180 kids’ maths education, I am going to invoke a land girls policy and put her to work on the allotment……maybe with a pitchfork to fend off the Merrow marauders looking to snaffle my curly kale.

So I’ll continue to work from home for another week, resigned to the fact that Romie the family cat (known to many of you) is now a central star of numerous of my company web calls and beyond e.g. https://www.instagram.com/p/B-KaTOIAvHA/

So remember to wash your hands, just like Boris is of this once proud nation, Stay safe, stay sane and hash alone. On on

Public Health warning II: this is written more for my sanity than yours.  If you are missing a regular run report, just go to the PH3 iPlayer at https://ph3.org.uk/ where into the Search box you can add any hash number (below 1884), a venue, a hare, a hasher, you name it – and receive a blast from the PH3 past!
