Poor Old Mule

A city boy moved to the country and bought
 a mule from an old farmer.

The farmer agreed to deliver the mule the next day.
The next day, the farmer drove up and said,
 "Sorry, but I have some bad news. The mule died."

"Well, then, just give me my money back."

"Can't do that. I went and spent it already."

"OK, then. Just unload the mule."

"What ya gonna do with him?"

"I'm going to raffle him off."

"You can't raffle off a dead mule!"

"Sure I can. Watch me.
 I just won't tell anybody he's dead."

A month later the farmer met up with the city
boy and asked,
"Whatever happened with that dead mule?"

"I raffled him off. I sold a hundred tickets
 at two dollars apiece and made
a hundred ninety-eight dollar profit.

"Didn't anyone complain?"

"Just the guy who won.
So I gave him his two dollars back".

The Legend Of The Butterfly

The Legend of the Butterfly

Once as a child many years ago...
On a balmy summer's eve.
I sat in the yard at my Mother's side...
and a butterfly lit at my sleeve.
"It's a sign of good luck, my Mother said.
As the butterfly stayed at my arm...
"It's a symbol of all the beauty in life.
Make sure you do it no harm."
First butterflies are eggs and after they hatch...
they see that their life's just beginning,
They're content  with  their lot in life,
so they go out on a limb and start spinning.
They stay out awhile in a magic cocoon...
then emerge like flowers in spring,
Then they share the story of their victory and success...
through each of the colors of their wings.
The gold in their wings is the " Golden Rule"....
To follow that is a must.
The blue....That means  true blue.
Always  be someone people can  trust.
The green of the tip of their wing
is saying Stay  green, and you'll always grow.
The silver is the lining in the clouds of doubt...
that you must look for as
for as through your life you go.
Butterflies bend with the wind, it's true,
Still they get where they want to go.
They arrive by persistence through their own insistence
A lesson more people should know.
~ author unknown ~
May the wings of the butterfly kiss the sun
And find your shoulder to light on,
To bring you luck, happiness and riches
Today, tomorrow and beyond.
