Once upon a time, in a little village surrounded by rolling green hills and clear blue skies, there lived a blacksmith named Henry. Henry had strong arms from working all day, making horseshoes and fixing tools. But what made Henry special was not just his strong arms, but also his very smart brain.
Henry loved to invent new things. One day, he decided to make a magical shovel that could dig by itself! Henry sketched and planned. When he finally figured it out, he knew he needed to start making it right away while his idea was fresh and hot like a pancake.
But then Ping, the playful village kitten, jumped onto Henry's workbench, scattering his papers everywhere! 'Oh, Ping!' Henry laughed, 'You little rascal!' He picked Ping up and spun around. Despite the mess, Henry knew he had to get back to work quickly.
Henry worked all through the night. He heated metal until it was red and glowing like a firebug, and hammered it into shape. His muscles got really tired, but he didn't stop. 'Strike while the iron is hot,' he kept saying to himself.
As the sun started to peek over the hills, Henry gave the shovel one last tap with his hammer. 'Done!' he cheered. He placed the shovel on the ground, said the magic words, and watched in amazement as the shovel began to move and dig all on its own!
The villagers woke up to find Henry sleeping next to his new magical creation. They could not believe their eyes! The shovel was digging up the whole garden, making perfect spots for the plants. 'Henry, you've done it again!' they exclaimed, clapping their hands.
From that day on, Henry became known as the blacksmith who could make magic happen. And everyone learned that if you have a good idea, you should act on it right away, just like Henry. Because you never know when an idea will be as hot and ready as a pancake for breakfast. The end.
