Z15  is for Zeus  Zeus

Zeus was the god of the sky and ruler of the Olympian gods. He overthrew his father, Cronus, and then drew lots with his brothers Poseidon and Hades, in order to decide who would succeed their father on the throne. Zeus won the draw and became the supreme ruler of the gods, as well as lord of the sky and rain. His weapon was a thunderbolt which he hurled at those who displeased or defied him, especially liars and oathbreakers. He was married to Hera but often tested her patience, as he was infamous for his many affairs.

ZeusZeus, the presiding deity of the universe, ruler of the skies and the earth, was regarded by the Greeks as the god of all natural phenomena on the sky; the personification of the laws of nature; the ruler of the state; and finally, the father of gods and men.

Well this is the end of the A to Z Challenge for 2015, and the end of the alphabet and I had a great time and I hope you did too!  Thank you for stopping by!

    Congrats on crossing the A2Z finish line, ole pal! We did it! Phew, it was fun, but I’m glad it’s done! lol Have a good weekend! I’ll see you on the dance floor Monday!


    To you too ol’ girl! It was indeed fun. I thought I’d make a bunch of new friends, but the one friend I did think I made didn’t show up for the last one. Goooooo figure! LOL


    Zeus was the name of the last rottweiler we had. He was such a great dog. I put him down myself so that my husband wouldn’t have to do it. That will be the last of our pets that I will ever put down. Now shooting a troublesome stray. I don’t think I would have a problem with that.

Thanks for the lovely comment!
