Here's some Horse-Tradin' for Ya...

Chuck and the Farmer

Young Chuck moved to Montana and bought a horse from a farmer
for $100.00. The farmer agreed to deliver the horse the next day.

The next day he drove up and said, 'Sorry son, but I have some
bad news - the horse died.'

Chuck replied, 'Well, then, just give me my money back.'

The farmer said, 'Can't do that. I went and spent it already.'

Chuck said, 'Ok, then, just bring me the dead horse.'

The farmer asked, 'What ya gonna do with him?

Chuck said, 'I'm going to raffle him off.'

The farmer said, 'You can't raffle off a dead horse!'

Chuck said, 'Sure I can. Watch me. I just won't tell anybody
he's dead.'

A month later, the farmer met up with Chuck and asked, 'What
happened with that dead horse?'

Chuck said, 'I raffled him off. I sold 500 tickets at two
dollars a piece and made a net profit of $898.00.'

The farmer said, 'Didn't anyone complain?'

Chuck said, 'Just the guy who won. So I gave him his two dollars

Chuck grew up and now works for the government.

Hey, have a really good day today, okay? It's not that hard to do:
Just decide when you wake up that you're gonna have a good one,
and no matter what comes your way; take it and make it as positive
as you can and go on to what's next.
And a smile or two simply cannot hurt anything...
