The Odyssey - post VII

Things have been really busy today with family around so getting in some reading was seen as rude and inappropriate but to keep the Homer simmering I did manage to get a chapter in

Bullet points from chapter fourteen
* Disguised by Athena Odysseus goes and meets a loyal old friend Eumaios who is living with a herd of pigs in self imposed exile from the palace which he tells Odysseus is full of suitors who disrespect the memory of the king

* He shows loyalty to Odysseus even though the disguised stranger suggests he might be dead and shares food and lodging with him

Meanwhile Athena has gone to get Odysseus son to come back and join the fight against the suitors, which will be in the next chapter
