First Nuala will be tormented by 3 potentially life altering questions then we will be tearing (or tootling, as is yer want) across the beawthifull Wickler countryside in our RED CARS for a picnic up in the wilds. It'll be all cucumber sandwiches, crack cocaine, poteen and Werther's Originals.
We will have entertainmet, we want entertainment, we want you, YES YOU! to post a poem without ,or preferably with ,the words RED CAR in it.We want you tube shenanigans of yourself reading yer poem or singing a song,it's hooley time get up and shake yer groove thang, clack your maracas, get up by getting down.
Turn up in a RED CAR as exotic or prosaic as you like. I'll be burning rubber(I've a strange prediliction for singed elastic)
in my hot red red hot McLaren F1.
Bring any guest you like.Liz is bringing Johnny Depp, Weaver is bringing Christy Moore(no better man, we'll be expecting a song or two from him)
Star guest Nuala will be looking cool in her Mini Cooper despite bringing Cliff Richard. (See warning sign at top of post)

Happy news on the poetry bus front, TFE...memories of my first car - red panda called 'Rivet' bubbling over...not sure if poetic sense can prevail though...specially since I've got that tune about 'If I had a hammer...' doing my head in...¡socorro!
*claps hands together and gets mean....
I've agreed to take on so many challenges this week (well, two)..
Red car it is... I love dis bus millarkey!

Red sports car burning bright
Like a rocket in the night.
Make heads turn
And pulses race
You truly are a wonderous sight.
Wish I may
Wish I might
Give that grumpy old fucker in his Rover an awful fright.
