The old farmer married a young girl of 18 and after a few

“The problem is I’m having to work many hours on the farm
but I have to keep breaking off when I get the urge, to run
back to the house, jump into bed and do the business. Then

from your gun to let your wife know you’re waiting for her.
A few months passed and then the doctor met the old farmer
