Jim was visiting his uncle in the east and one day was asked by the butcher to ride his horse into the country to a pasture.
Jim tied up Father Time and began to cause mischief around the town by tricking a number of people.
Jim was riding the horse and lassoing the air in a field and then caught something but could not see anything. He then began to coil the rope around the air and after getting 3 feet close to him an old man appeared in the rope.
Who are you?
YOU MUST RELEASE ME!
Won't you let me go now?
Jim took father time as his prisoner and road off to the town and noticed everyone was frozen
Since you've promised not to mow me down, I'll let you go.
Jim releases father time because of his promise not to kill him and everything resumes back to normal,
I forgot to clean the horse.
Jim lost track of time and the butcher notices Jim and is furious he forgot to wash his horse.
Didn't ye promise to put that beast inter Plympton's pasture. An' now I find ye ridin' the poor nag.
