Whistle Stop

Bull liked to hoot and holler and earn an easy dollar. He followed the train tracks across the country, stopping in each city, town or hamlet, looking for adventure. They run him out of most, but welcomed him with open arms the next time he came through.

He fought and gambled, shoed horses, caught outlaws, robbed stagecoaches, tilled fields, picked apples, onions, potatoes, and tobacco. He sang for pennies and danced for dimes. When people heard the train coming, they readied themselves, steadied for his arrival. But even prepared, he swept through, upsetting most things and settling some others down.
