There once was a farm boy named Jeffrey who liked to play much more than he liked to work. One day his father came up to him and announced “Jeffrey, you’ve reached the age where you can help me work the farm. The first thing I want you to do is to start tending to the sheep.”
It was a warm summer day and the ant colony was busy. Ants were everywhere: gathering twigs, small bits of garbage and other items that would help them survive the winter.
An ant named Andy was working very hard that day. He had already made ten trips back and forth to the garbage dump, and it was only noon! As he started on his eleventh trip, he observed Greg the Grasshopper playing in the field below. Andy had seen Greg doing that type of thing for many days now and did not approve.
