The Labours of Sisyphus

As everyone was so kind about the picture I posted recently of our grandkids on the giant stone balls, I thought this might amuse some of my Flickr friends. We asked them to see who was the strongest and who could push the stone balls the furthest. It ended in a draw......

 

PS Sisyphus was the king of Ephyra (now known as Corinth). He was punished for his self-aggrandizing craftiness and deceitfulness by being forced to roll an immense boulder up a hill, only to watch it roll back down, repeating this action for eternity..... We didn't make the grandkids do this however as they had to get back for their tea.......
