A Day Off

a day off!!  so we shuffled off to Ocracoke for a walk with the dogs & a quick bite to eat... & off course some photo opps... the boys were ready to go!  Winston (the one with the grey beard) & Hogan love to travel so they are my roadies during my "off time"  If you live in the Outer Banks area, yes that's me walking them to the beach every morning unless it rains (Winston hates to walk in the rain, Hogan on the other hand is part duck)

Local Artist Zee Layne


As many of you know, in one of my past lives I was a restaurant owner/chef... yes the combination of cooking and singing turned into turning tables... the Horny Toad Cafe was a wonderfully intimate, colorful, southwest cuisine with music venue: appetizing food, yummy desserts, and an array of folks we still see occasionally at my gigs.  We met lots of locals and visitors who were artists in their own rights... one of those many was Zee Layne (& husband Bill) who painted some horny toads that we had hung on the walls of the restaurant.  When we sold the business, we kept the artwork and of course many of the friends.  Zee is now selling her art at one of our local venues The Lone Wolff Trading Co -  210 East Gallery Row - Nags Head - 252-449-5111.  These samples are some of her latest that she has shared with us...keep it up Zee! We love ya!!
