DT #156, 5 June 2014 (Mary Jane) and Farewell Fredo   Leave a comment

Mary Jane at the Britannia

“I’m a free born man…”
He was often heard to say,
“…Of the USA.”

Name: Mary Jane
Type: bitter
Venue: The Britannia, Oxford

Review/notes: Very hoppy and citric ale to go with a fish and chips lunch at the turnaround point of a run.

A hasher from Tucson, Fredophile, passed away yesterday.  Lumbering and obnoxious it was always a joy to see him on his rare visits during my tenure with the jHavelina’s and Mr Happy’s.  If his funeral cortege takes a direct route without veering off into a stand of jumping cholla or a strip club or into a bar you can be sure his soul has already left the corpse.  On-on, buddy…regards to BusJob and Prof (late of the Bicester Hash).

Thoughts with Jilldo and co, as well as the jHavelinas and Huachucans for whom this is a sad loss.  Apologies to all for forcing the Pogues into Haiku structure for this entry, but a great song for a wake.
