The Devil Queen

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

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.

First Class Turd

As a general rule, I never open my mail on the weekend. Whatever I find in my box on Friday and Saturday gets stuffed into a wad I hide until Monday morning. This Old House, National Geographic, or birthday cards are the exceptions to the rule. I've had more than one weekend ruined by some bad news sent via the US Postal Service. Since most businesses are closed for the weekend, there isn't anything you can do about it until Monday except worry if something is wrong.

Ignorance is bliss.

That being the case, what was a fairly routine Monday has become a rather unpleasant day. We're having a banking problem, and I'm having some trouble figuring out what is going on since their computers crashed. So, I'm anxiously waiting for a phone call, and contemplating this dreaded phrase, "daily compounding interest."

I need a drink.
