Frankly, although my "semi-retirement" has allowed me to pursue many other interests, including drawing, writing, and collecting island history, I have missed daily interactions with customers and island visitors.
This season I have begun a new project that I call "Let's Chat." Most weekdays starting today, and through the fall, I will be spending the hour from 1 pm to 2 pm on the porch of the Village Craftsmen for an informal hour of sharing island history, stories, and glimpses into daily island life. If you have ever had any questions or curiosity about Ocracoke and life on the island, please stop by and "let's chat." Stay 5 minutes, or the whole hour. Come back every day if you want. There is no charge, of course. I would like to meet you on the pizer!
Check the sign on the porch to make sure I will be there.
