The Poo tree Bus THe Poo tree Bus


Q) When is a bus not a bus?

A) When it's a wheel within a wheel, a fairground attraction, a carrier of belief, a safe place to say 'This is what I feel, this is who I am' just for this minute; or forever.

Is it really seven days since the last task? It feels more like a week! And I haven't got round to some/any/all the last weeks bus passengers yet. Moer busy than a busy thing and twice as ugly. A million and one things to do and only 20 seconds to do them in.

But it was a brilliant task brilliantly set by the brilliant, mighty brainy, chillaxing harp playing, Prof Jeanne Lakatos.So many muchlo thanklers to her for taking the time and effort to inspire us.
The Bus they call poetry would be nothing without it's drivers, or indeed it's passlenglers.Spread the word around, the bus is back in town but it's singing 'Country Roads'.

This weeks driver is the mighty Enchanted Oak (Chris Alba), so lets hope our tiny enchanted acorns are planted in poetic soil. Talented poet Chris, a multi millionaire from Alaska enjoys stamp collecting , yodelling and mud wrestling. She has an honoury doctorate in milking cows from the University of Wisconsin and once crossed The Sahara backwards on a 2 legged camel.

Get ye away to her bolg HERE to see two brillo pics to inspire ye.What have you to lose, your sanity? Feck that!


Ps Did anyone (i KNOW none of you actually read these things properly to the end, why would you? I don't either) notice the fancy use of a semi colon there above.That's a first for me and I'm tingling with excitement!

Actually no, sorry, it's just the shakes.

I saw the pics on the millionaire's blog. Now how does this work? I'm all about hands.

I'm a sad one. I confess, I do read them from top to bottom!

Your semi-colon looks beautiful there Peadar. I used to be good at English several light years ago, but am ashamed to admit that I've forgotten so much grammar and punctuation so I'll leave it to an expert to say whether it is in the right place or not.

That's some fancy punctuatin' pardner!

I never knew about the yodelling; great semi-colon. It's one of my favourite punctuation marks; glad to see it's getting out more.

Dear Total: You know I tried at least once to figure out why I cant get the brillo pic linky. I guess it is my dumb luck. I am going to probably cut and paste from someone like Dr. FTSE. You know the pic of the little canoe by the mighty Thames? Well I think I could try to do the 8 syllable thingy with no commas or semicolon or any Colin Powells. So I'll try again and regain my composure skills. Thanks Dr. Jeanne Lakota for the sage advice. I dont need no one tellin' me I'll related to NEEJIT! We're real tight!

Read 'em from top to bottom, some do; me too! (In this case I believe the semi-colon is used correctly, but I think "me too" is incorrect and should be something like "I also.") Wonder what the professor would say...
