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.

Speaking of crime, a friend of mine inherited some property from an aunt in rural Conway County, Arkansas.  Their aunt's old single wide is still on the old homestead.  It's certainly nothing fancy.  And, the trailer is next door to her cousin who has a well deserved reputation as a crazy bad-ass.  This has not stopped people from kicking in the front door twice and stealing some of the appliances.  

My friend's solution?  They found some magic voodoo signs in a book and drew them on the trailer with red spray paint.  They also wrote, "I do Hoodoo, steal from me and eat live things," beside the glyphs.  No one has touched the trailer since.

That sounds like a good approach for Brooklyn. Love that skull&flowers, almost like calligraphy!
