AUSTRALIA ~ The Antipodes

AUSTRALIA ~ The Antipodes
I love a sunburnt country / A land of sweeping plains / Of ragged mountain ranges / Of droughts and flooding rains / I love her far horizons / I love her jewel-sea / Her beauty and her terror / The wide brown land for me / ~ Dorothea Mackellar (1885-1968)

Living Echoes

Microfiction Monday #54 ~ where a picture paints 140 characters, or even fewer. Susan says:
Photos will be from my own archives; illustrations are from Dover Publications' free clipart sample newsletter.

School reunions should mean happy ones.
But the flashy girl in the swim suit still fishes for the guys!
A snob!
Some things never change!

(140 characters)

Nice part of the story is that it's usually the late bloomers that love to come to the reunions.
Nice way to go with Susan's picture.
