Who was Cassandra?


  • In the Iliad, she is described as the loveliest of the daughters of Priam (King of Troy), and gifted with prophecy. The god Apollo loved her, but she spurned him. As a punishment, he decreed that no one would ever believe her. So when she told her fellow Trojans that the Greeks were hiding inside the wooden horse...well, you know what happened.

These folk myths are fascinating and this eggplant one is new to me. Your father-in-law is quite the flirt, isn't he, and both young and old do enjoy him. This is lovely to see and probably contributes to his enjoyment of life, and thus his longevity too, wouldn't you say, Beth? As always your stories delight.

I'd love to meet him. He sounds delightful.
