The Acropolis of Athens is one of the most famous ancient archaeological sites in the world. Located on a limestone hill high above Athens, Greece, the Acropolis has been inhabited since prehistoric times. Over the centuries, the Acropolis was many things: a home to kings, a citadel, a mythical home of the gods, a religious center and a tourist attraction. It has withstood bombardment, massive earthquakes and vandalism yet still stands as a reminder of the rich history of Greece.

“Hercules ain’t got nothing on me,” yelled Cletus Jr., who thinks he’s the strongest crawdad in the world. I must admit seeing something so ancient made me appreciate the preservation of history. I wonder if they had any Greek crawdads who hung out at Acropolis. I didn’t notice any old crawdad holes, but sure imagined what it would of been like back in those Greek days high among Athens!

Clawdette and I admired the old columns, as Cletus Jr. ran around trying to pick up large rocks to show his strength. I was able to find a small souvenir crown that I gave to Clawdette. I told her she’ll always be my queen rather at Acropolis or in the Louisiana bayou!
