In the afternoon, Dido Mykhas hurries for work — people from all around the village bring him lizhnyks, handmade wool carpets, to have them soaked in the valylo — a wooden barrel that stands on the river with a massive water whirl inside. After the flood, all the valylos in the village were destroyed, so Dido Mykhas made one by himself. Now the banks of the mountain river are full of people, and Dido Mykhas is now welcomed in every house to have dumplings and mushroom soup, to be the headman at the weddings, and to have the first word at the table.
After work, Dido Mykhas meets his friends: Dido Vasyl and Dido Pylyp. They go to the meadows to watch the sheep that compete with the clouds in the white cuteness.
