IslandDrumz

Welcome to our little slice of paradise! Clear Lake Shores is probably one of the best kept secrets in the entire Bay Area. Yes we are an island. We are surrounded by Clear Lake, Jarbo Bayou and the Lazy Bend canals. Plug this in to Google Maps and you'll see what I mean 29.32' by 95.01' We are about half way between Galveston Island and the city of Houston and located in north Galveston county. I will try to keep us up on all the goings on that we can walk, boat, bike or drive our golf carts to. Very few things pi$$ me off but one of them is wasting my precious time. I'll try not to waste yours. Enjoy. ab

Jam packed weekend. Started out with a great Farmers Market and even better weather. I got my first sunburn of the season. Some of us went to Glen’s deer lease on a quasi pig hunt. I say quasi  ‘cause who the hell goes hunting wearing corduroy pants. Vwoop, vwoop, vwoop, you ain’t sneakin up on nothin’ with legs. Came home pigless but lots of fun under our collective belts. After 14 years my Jeep finally got dirty. It was Glen’s 1945 Willys in the lead, Todd’s  fancy schmancy Range Rover in the middle and my 97 TJ playin’ in the dirt. That was fun. Especially watching the Rover hike it’s skirt as it tiptoed through the creek. With a button on the inside and the A/C running…. But I’m not jealous……
Island news. Here’s the scoop on the Lazy Bend bridge(s) from P Duffy …” bids will go out in April. The project is not scheduled to start until November (I will believe it when I see it). After it is started, the project will then need 70 days for utility work and they expect 70 some odd working days for completion…”
Thanks for the update P. If anything changes let me know.
Anybody do ice sculpting? A friend of mine is looking for a contact so if you know someone let me know and I’ll pass it along.
Looks like the jerky contest is picking up steam. It was the buzz at sunset. I sent out an email looking for 5 judges. Preferably females who like jerky. Right now we are looking at Sundial park on March 19th. Location can change as weather changes. Simple scoring, no background experience necessary but a set of bresticles will help as you’ll be judges at a jerky off and the adolescent humor is just getting started. That roll’s off the tongue like a bug.
