Let's stop and rest, then we can finish our journey.
Chanticleer and his wife Partlet decided to go to the mountains to eat the nuts because they were quite ripe by now. They had to hurry though so that the squirrel would not take them all away.
On their way, they met a needle and a pin. The needle cried,"Stop!, Stop!" and told them that they needed a ride in their carriage because it was too dark out and the road was far too dirty for them. They agreed to give them a ride.
They all decided that it would be a good idea to stop and rest for a while, because they were exhausted. But they never actually made it to the mountains, and the squirrel got all of the nuts to himself.
