Bad Days Make Good Stories

Bad Days Make Good Stories

I put new shoes on the sorrel four year old,

this morning before the sun got high.

then headed out for a half day ride.

beneath a perfect azure sky.

A sunny morning with a little breeze,

to keep the skeeters down.

A good traveling horse on a woodland trail,

a million miles from town.

Bad days make good stories,

That's what every cowboy knows,

But as I head out on a green broke mare,

I'm not craving one of those.

When everything goes like it should,

There aint that much to say,

But now and then, I kind of appreciate,

"A not much to write about day!"
