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)

The Dog Was Having a Grand Time

Pic by Gemma Wiseman ~ A little one watching me on my walk round Red Hill, Mornington Peninsula

Today's Prompt ~ First and Last
Today we will use the line...
The rules are you must use this as your first AND last line in your write, with no changes...

The dog was having a grand time
Romping and dashing around
Scattering piles of Autumn leaves
(We had just raked into mounds)

 Diving into the swimming pool
Now the beach ball has a new hole
Scrambling out to chase the cat
And piddle on the WET PAINT pole

And the clothes line gets attention
Such a tempting long long sheet
A skip and a jump
And a little bite
And a spin round the world is so neat

 But hey! Is that Mum and Dad shouting!
Stop! Drop!
What a great rhyme!
They love my wonderful talents

The dog was having a grand time

Clever dog! It saw the sign 'Wet Paint' and did!
(sorry, not original)
And about the rest... just because I don't always comment doesn't mean I didn't enjoy the visit!
Like the dog, just leaving a calling card to say I have been bere.
