The Devil Queen

How my wife and I sold our souls to the Queen Anne Victorian we tried to save.

Name:
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.

Autumn Update

Sorry for yet another absence.  Gideon and I both caught something nasty, either a bad cold or mild flu (fever, sinus congestion, and a cough in my case).  Last week at work I couldn't figure out the hot flashes, apparently that was the low grade fever.   Scarlet's grandmother got something similar except hers developed into pneumonia.  Throw in some seed ticks and family drama and it's been more entertaining than I would like.

Before all of this, I did manage a few home repairs (replacing broken window panes, minor caulk and paint work, and floor prep).  Nothing too sexy, but you might get some photos if I finish a few things up soon.

Anyhow, since it's now officially autumn, the summer suits will have to be put away until next spring.  I hate to see them go, it's hard to beat white cotton and linen for comfort.

Ladies, thank you.

I'm looking for some winter hats now. Those have been hard to find.
