    Quite the humorous debacle. Although, as a builder of cabins, I would have to admit that it does put me in a bit of a chin-scratching mood.

    Luckily for me I guess is that my property is only reachable by foot or canoe.

    It is now my duty to completely drain you.

    Someone is very ambitious or very bored if they go about stealing an actual cabin.

    Every day I think I have seen everything, then tomorrow comes along.......

    Actually, the guy who moved it (allegedly) bought it (you find out further into the article). He paid a company to move it. But the "Seller" didn't notify other parties who may (or may not) have a claim to the property. Investigation of actual ownership rights continues...

    Even a broken watch shows correct time once or twice a day. I ought to know, I have a few!

    Thanks, Jeannie! This is pretty damn close to what I want my next house to look like. I want a slightly larger version of this cabin, only water-front and in Maine.

    The pessimist says it can't get any worse while the optimist says it can.

    You might want to chain it down.
