One bright day in late autumn a family of Ants were bustling about in the warm sunshine, drying out the grain they had stored up during the summer, when a starving Grasshopper, his fiddle under his arm, came up and humbly begged for a bite to eat.
Not to be outdone, the pesky squirrel ambling by decided to jump for the grain bin and help himself. He missed and hung himself for the winter by his very ownliest nuts. Ouch! You can figure out the moral of this story for yourself.
