Old Story:
This couple decided to go where they first met 50 years ago. They went to the pub and walked around the streets in the locality. Then they went out to the corner of the field, where they were 50 years ago. The man said to the girl, much has not changed in 50 years around here. The woman started making leap. And the woman said there was no electric fence here 50 years ago.
