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.

We're A Happy Family

We made a very strange discovery last week. My wife, Kenny, and his work crew (his cousin Burt and brother Jimmy), are all related. Now Kenny being related to his cousin and brother is no surprise, but the fact that they are all distantly related to my wife by marriage was kind of mind bending. It's a very small world. Or, at least Arkansas is.

Kenny finished up yesterday. I could have kept him fully employed for another couple of weeks, but there is the small bit about us not having any more money to pay him. Details, damn them!

Anyhow, new pictures to follow in the coming days.
