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)

In Line

Microfiction Monday #59 ~ 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.

I know she looks like a man in a long-haired wig.
But mark my words dear King
She will be a sweet wife for your son keeping him in line.

(140 characters)

Sounds like the beginning to a musical!

HaHa! I wonder if the king is buying it? The seller doesn't look too trustworthy. :) Nice one!

SouthLakesMom said...

The King is right to be suspicious -- if she's all that good, why the sale . . . hmmmm . . . or maybe he's thinking "the heck with my son, she looks like almost enough woman for me!"

The more I look at that guy in leopard's clothing, the more I'd feel the need to back away from what he's selling. Well done!

kaykuala said...

The son would certainly approve of it if he was there viewing the merchandise himself. Great take!

Diane said...

Hope they all survive this one. Getting married not under the best of circumstances.... :O)

As arranged marriages go, not a bad deal.

Peggy said...

I know why the sale.
She smells like her flock but she's great with all animals!
Good one.

Dianne said...

and she comes with her own herd!!

good one :)

Sylvia K said...

With a herd like that it should be an easy sell -- but then with a salesman dressed like that??? Who knows?? Great one for the day, Gemma, as always! Hope your week goes well!


Maria@BubblegumandDuctTape said...

haha that's very funny, who would trust a salesman dressed like that I wonder??

Susan Fobes said...

Keeping him in line? Funny!

quilly said...

I hate to say this, but the guy in the leopard skin is the one who looks like a man in women's clothing ... check out those toeless boots.

Scott said...

I'm sold! Is that from one of those ads, "looking for woman with good production cattle ranch, send picture of cattle"? lol

Pat said...

Ahh...keeping him in line with sweetness--that works!

ruthi said...

Well, if I was the King... the herd is already a good deal and the Lady is a good bonus. lol

Michael G-G said...

Gemma, good one. I'd never have thought of the "drag" aspect!

Have a great week.
