The Devil Queen

How my wife and I sold our souls to the Queen Anne Victorian we tried to save.

My Photo
Location: Crow Mountain, Arkansas, United States

Synopsis: This is a cautionary tale. A seriously disturbed couple find the charming, old ruin of a Queen Anne Victorian in Russellville, Arkansas, and buy it for $1.00. They tore the roof off, cut it in half, and had it moved to some land they owned sixteen miles away because they didn't know any better. Since then, they have hired and fired contractors, had all of their tools stolen, re-wired, re-plumbed, insulated, and essentially rebuilt the entire house. Their only problem is that after four years it still isn't finished. Now they are tired, broke, and wonder what in the hell it is they've done to themselves. And, it's haunted.

We finally downloaded some photos from a couple weeks ago as seen below. I'm not too pleased with the quality of some of our photos. We have a pretty low-end digital camera. My wife is the only one that can take reasonably good photos with it. Most of the ones I take don't come out. You have to stand motionless like a statue to keep it from blurring and it's very light sensitive. Most of the better images on this blog were taken with a 35mm camera. Once the photos were developed, we scanned them into the computer.

Unfortunately, our laptop is in its twilight years. I'm not sure how much longer it will keep on struggling. I figure it has a fifty-fifty chance of dying a natural death or meeting a violent end. Every time it crashes it creeps one step closer to being thrown out the front door. My wife killed the radio this way. The stove was bludgeoned to death with a hammer. Our laptop should be very nervous.
