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.

Kick Me

Please, kick me while I'm down.

First, the flu, then tornados, and now more illness. Gideon was the plague bringer this time. There is nothing quite like being thrown up on at 5 AM on a fine Saturday morning. And, not that we actually got to enjoy it, but the weather was beautiful this weekend. Sigh. Sunday, Gideon is better, but, after dinner, Scarlet comes down with it. I figure that with my compromised immune system and an orgy of vomit, I'm a dead man walking.

On the upside, listening to dry-heaving all weekend is great diet. Somehow, your appetite just evaporates.

Is a normal week too much to ask for? I kind of miss them.

Forget the medicine. I'll send a priest out to paint a red cross on your door!

We are in a vomity, disgusting parallel universe. I, too, got sick and then sick again. Best of luck to you.
