Jane Austen, Action Doll, patted the granite spire before her. She admired its solidity and solitariness.
"If rocks could speak, the stories they could tell us," she said. "Oh, and the scolding they might give us."
"Dear me, where has my rock pick gone?"
My theme for this year's challenge is Jane Austen, Action Doll, Seeks a New Career.

What a fun theme for the A to Z Challenge! Enjoyed picturing Jane Austen as a geologist. :)ReplyDelete
A Jane Austen action doll? I really need one.ReplyDelete
:-) She's a great companion, not much of a word and sentence taskmaster, thank goodness.Delete
She's quite right about teh scolding. :)ReplyDelete
She is going to rock the worldReplyDelete
Awesome post! When I was twelve I aspired to being a geologist.ReplyDelete
Thanks, Linda. :-)Delete
I don't think this is the one for -- this is definitely not Jane.... although of course she is right about the stories the rocks could tell, her skirts are going to get in her way even if she finds the pick!ReplyDelete
Those skirts! When she works alone, she could tie them up out of the way.Delete
Geology would be an interesting career path for Jane Austin action doll. Weekends In MaineReplyDelete
The sharp edges of rocks wouldn't hurt her plastic skin too much, that's for sure. :-0Delete
She might have been happy amongst rocks. There was that one line... (And now I can't think of even which book it was from. Drat!)ReplyDelete
Hmmm, I think of Jane Eyre wandering the moors.Delete
She’s right...the rocks would give us a scoldingReplyDelete
I just hope they don't think of burying us.Delete
