Harriers Mash Trash: 11/28/10

This one goes down in history as the How Can There Be Global Warming When It’s This Cold Mash.

The pack assembles

El Paso, Wankers Aweigh, Hot Legs, Flying Booger, and Green Flagger met at El Con Mall on Broadway at 10 AM, only to find no hare. Ten minutes later, Redheaded Woodpecker rode [...]


Next Thanksgiving

From the Half-Mind Hymnal:

NEXT THANKSGIVING Melody – Frere Jacques

Next Thanksgiving, next Thanksgiving, Don’t eat bread, don’t eat bread, Shove it up the turkey, shove it up the turkey, Eat the bird, eat the bird.

Next Christmas, next Christmas, Don’t trim a tree, don’t trim a tree, Shove it up the chimney, shove it [...]


Pedalfiles Bash Trash: 11/21/10

Today’s Pedalfiles Bash didn’t look like it was going to be much bigger than last month’s, what with only Redheaded Woodpecker, Flying Booger, and Green Flagger in the parking lot at start time, but within minutes Cock Stalker, Womb with a View, and Bimbo by Day drove up, so we had a decent pack.

– Flying Booger is unworthy!

Zorro, recycling [...]


Note to Self

How to get along with the big dogs:

1. Schedule your small hash event on a day the big hash doesn’t meet.

2. Let big hash mismanagement know about your event months ahead of time (don’t forget to send periodic reminders).

3. Wait for the big hash to schedule a conflicting event.

4. Have a [...]


Harriers Mash Trash: 10/31/10

L to R: Wankers & Hot Legs, Humpin', El Paso, Green Flagger

Bright and early Hallowe’en morning, members of Harriers MC (Tucson Chapter) assembled at the Triple T Truck Stop for our long-delayed and many-times-postponed ride to the National Optical Astronomy Observatory at Kitt Peak. At last it was cool enough to contemplate a [...]
