The Devil Queen

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

Name:
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.

Spring Flowers and Snow

Well, I'll be damned if it isn't snowing. I feel bad for all the tulips trees and flowers that are getting ready to bloom.

I think that I've also reached my limit for the number of projects that I can handle at one time. Even though things are moving fairly well, the constant rushing around and constant work is wearing me out.

I'm not planning to do anything this weekend except sleep, eat, and lounge around in my pajamas.

More photos of the Queen come Monday or so.

We haven't had snow since November, I'm not expecting any more, but who knows?

I was thinking about the vacant space in your living room. Soom wood stoves don't require much in the way of clearance. I have one of these (waiting patiently on my backporch until the day...)

I believe that teak place in NLR sells these for not so much money.

We haven't had snow since the week before Christmas. If I ask real nice would you pack some in a box and send it to me?

I don't blame you for taking time off.

We even had a bit of snow here in Alabam'. Actually, I didn't see any of the alleged snow, but my 4-year-old nephew got to see some for the first time.
