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.

Sorry for the prolonged silence. I haven't been feeling well the last few days, so nothing is getting done.

Before I lapsed into a fitful illness, I did manage to buy a new digital camera. It is nothing fancy. Actually, you couldn't buy one any cheaper without getting something with Mickey Mouse on it. Hopefully it is better than nothing.

The weekend looms before me. My wife works Saturday, so I'll be alone up at the Queen. I think I'll either work on the crawlspace or sand the floor. I'm staying the hell away from the tub for now (per the Mrs. instructions). Maybe I can avoid tornados and bodily harm and have a quiet weekend at the Queen.

Bless your heart! It's no fun being sick and wounded (hand and pride).

Come help me strip the hallway and I'll show you how to flip stripper in your eye. Now that's good fun. :)
