this seems very much like a rip-off of Cockeyed cowboys of calico County. it has the same plot, a blacksmith because of his weight and size cant seem to find a women to marry, so he orders a mailorder bride from boston and ends up having his heart broke. plus when he goes to pick her up the whole town shows up as well
Excellent story telling. You've inspired me, you could say. Not too short, not too long. Just right. I think I've got the gist of things, well, for now anyways. I'm going to try my hand at a short story like this before I do any more writing.
The stories are really funny and witty all at the same time. A perfect combination!
