Once upon a time there was a man who owned a farm with this son. His name was Joseph. One day his horse ran away from the stables. Joseph’s neighbors said to him, “Dear me Joseph, that’s what you call bad luck!”

And old Joseph replied, “Good or bad, who knows?”

The following day, his faithful horse returned with a herd of wild horses. His neighbors saw this and said to him, “Dear me Joseph, that’s what you call good luck!”

Joseph shrugged his shoulders and said, “Good or bad, who knows?”

Joseph asked his son to bring the horses into the field and to keep them in the safety of the fenced area of their land. Unfortunately while trying to herd the wild horses into the fenced area, one of the horses kicked his son and broke his shoulder and arm. The neighbors watched again and said to Joseph, “Dear me Joseph, that’s what you call bad luck!”

Joseph shook his head and raised his arms, “Good or bad, who knows?”

Joseph took his son into the house and mended his arm and shoulder. He told him to rest and he would go and tend to the horses. It would be awhile before his son would be completely healed and be able to work again.

The next day, the army reserve came to the farm. The war had started and they needed to recruit young men. All the young men in the area were taken away except Joseph’s son due to his injuries. The neighbors cried and turned to Joseph and said, “Dear me Joseph, that’s what you call good luck!”

And Joseph smiled, shrugged his shoulders and said, “Good or bad, who knows?!”
