In a small town, not far from here, lived a farmer with three sons. The oldest was named Didldei, the middle, Didldob, and the youngest, Hondidldo.
The farmer had a magnificent apple tree, and one day he noticed that a large number of apples were missing. In order to discover who the thief was, he ordered his oldest son, Didldei, to stand guard that night. Didldei vowed to stay awake and sat down beneath the tree, and waited. But as he waited, and as the night grew darker, and as the moon rose higher, poor Didldei´s eyelids grew heavier and heavier, until finally he fell right asleep.
