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.

Kind Words for a Twisted Soul

The beast has found me, and I have received his mark. And, I was so loved that I received it twice.

Really though, thank you for the kind words.
If I understand the law of the beast, I'm suppose to mark no less than ten of my most beloved as well, but I'm afraid that I'm going to give into some of my anarchist leanings and deviate from the rules. First, there are many of you which I do adore. I would refer you to The Petch House, This Old Crack House, Chicago Two-Flat, et al in my links sidebar. Two, I share my love with no demands of reciprocity. Honor others or none as you see fit because free will is a beautiful thing.

As one of the perpetrators-- I mean, awarders-- I totally understand. Think of the award as the neighbors' cute and well-behaved dog that amuses you a few minutes and then goes home-- not as a white elephant that's moved into your parlor for you to feed and muck out after.

Now me, I'd rather write than strip woodwork any time!

Kate, I love the white elephant analogy. And, thanks again.
