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.

To Serve and Obey

It is official; the laundry room’s never-ending paint job will be finished this weekend. So, after weeks of unfulfilled prognostication, why will this weekend be any different? My wife told me that I needed to “knock it out” this weekend because she wants a working laundry room. If she says it will be so, it will be (baring death, dismemberment, or serious illness).

Don't feel sorry for me. I'm glad to have an excuse to finish it. And, since she really wants it done, she can run interference for me so I can work in undisturbed seclusion. I get more done if I'm hermetically sealed.
