An Apple Vintage Postcard a Day Keeps the Doctor Away

I have a few more apples up my sleeve.

Atalanta is another character from ancient Greek Mythology.

She downright refused to get hitched. Her Father proclaimed that she would marry the man who outrun her in a footrace. She defeated many a suitor, who were then executed. Melanion was a swift witted rather than swift footed admirer of Atalanta. He begged Aphrodite to help him win fair Atalanta's hand. (Enter apples stage left)

The goddess of love gave him three shiny golden apples. Melanion dropped them along the race path to distract his lady love. He outran and then married the addled apple collecting Atalanta!
