Whoa Daddy-O


Bob "Daddy-O" Wade, known locally for his larger than life boots displayed at the entrance of North Star Mall (which marks its 30th anniversary in 2009) and his junk yard dog creation at Alamo City Inc, located on Somerset road, held an impromptu "Day of the JunkYard Dog" event at Alamo City Inc.

With mariachi's, beers, and tamales an eccentric bunch came out from Harley-Davidson bikers to children adorned in last evenings Halloween costumes, Wade's newest work is just as full of character as his previous creations. Used from parts of a '94 Buick Regal, '03 Kia, and the trunk of a '85 Ford trunk. Wade's newest piece was amazingly done in one day.

To see Wade's masterpiece in person, come out to tonight's Arts & Eats event at the Tobin Estate. For more information on Wade, take a look at his website. His upcoming show will be in the spring at the Museum of the Southwest in Midland, Texas. Be sure to check it out!
