There was an old shoemaker who made shoes for a living. He lived with his wife in a small shop. One day, he said to his wife, “We have no more leather left. I can only make one more pair of shoes.” Just then, his friend from the shop next door came in. He said, “Hello, my name is Tony. I am a woodcarver and I carve toys. How can I help you?” “Would you come in? I will have a hot cup of tea,” the shoemaker said kindly and sat down. for it was cold outside inside the shop there was an armchair near a warm fire after he had finished his tea it he said to the woodcarver said i am vey hungry now would like supper eh yes please said the woodcarver happily because they were old friends they had known themselves when they were young boys at school now they are older men they were still
