Hi Nita,

I just found out about you on Mrs. Grumpy's blog yesterday and thought I'd come over for a visit. I have read back a little and want you to know I will be praying for you and for your husbands continued recovery.

I have always loved reading all the great ancient Greek stories. I am a homeschooling mom and I told the story to my children-such a great moral! Thank you for sharing. Rose

Hi-it's Rose again. I know Jupiter was the Roman name for Zeus-so is this an Ancient Roman myth of an Ancient Greek myth. The Romans copied so much from the Greeks I get confused sometimes! Come an visit-Rose
