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.

Me? A Darwin Award? Never!

Even I am amazed by my total lack common sense and observational powers. For the last few days or so, I've been wondering why my arms have been so sore. I just couldn't figure out what I'd done to them.

Yesterday, the answer finally became obvious. They hurt because I've been shoveling gravel and ditch digging for an hour or two every couple of days after work. I figured this out because they started hurting while shoveling yet more gravel. Duh.

I have no idea how I managed to survive to adulthood.
