Jules, welcome to Novel PASTimes. What would you like to tell us about yourself?
JW: Howdy! Pleasure to be here. Name’s Jules Montgomery now that I got hitched. I’m one of those mail-order brides, although it seems like a funny name to me. It’s my first time to be settled and livin’ in one place. I kind of like it.
We’re pleased to have you for a visit. I heard you are living in Kansas. How is it different from where you came from?
JW: Kansas is mighty flat and seems like the wind is blowin’ all the time. I came from Texas mostly. My brother and I lived along the trail, so it’s a lot different since I’m livin’ in a town now.
What do you think of your new husband, Drew Montgomery?
JW: Drew’s pretty special and good-lookin’. He’s mighty particular about the way he likes things. It’s takin’ me a while to learn his ways. I expect he’s adjustin’ to me as well.
Sounds like you might be growing rather fond of him, Jules. Could you share some examples of what Drew’s so particular about?
JW: My Drew has certain things you can talk about and other things I’m supposed to keep quiet-like. Only trouble is, I never know which of those things are the ones that can be spoken.
Hmm… sounds like you two need to work on communication. How do you feel about becoming a minister’s wife?
JW: I didn’t exactly know what a minister’s wife was on account of never goin’ to a church service until we got hitched. I’m still tryin’ to figure out what all that means.
What are some of the expectations you are struggling with in becoming minister’s wife?
JW: Having to wear a dress and to not speak my mind when something comes up in church. Those church ladies can be mighty hard to deal with sometimes.
I have to agree it’s a mite easier to wear pants than to be trussed up in a corset and a dress. You have my empathy.
Do you have any goals for the future?
JW: I want a family and to stay in one place. I think that would be right nice.
It is nice to be in a stable place and have a family. I sure hope you and Drew can work things out. Thank you for stopping by Novel PASTImes this week.
