Yes it is a little toasty but that did not stop me from some quality nap time in the hammock. Even in the upper 90's in the shade with the breeze was pretty dang nice.
How about the new picture? got it figured out yet? you're probably close but there's more. Know where it is?
Great Party Dave! Thanks for the invite. And Happy Birthday to all those deserving!
Ever watch Chopped? It's on one of the food channels, they throw some bizarre assortment of stuff in a basket and people have to create a meal out of it. We had our own Island version Saturday. We modified the rules a bit since no one wanted to volunteer their kitchen for the adventure. There ended up being 6 entries that had to make a meal out of a cornish hen, endive, Anchovies, a pineapple and, wait for it, waaaaait, Cheeze-its. Did you know that there are 5 different flavors of Cheeze-its at Randalls? And that Cornish game hens were bred with all white meat in Pennsylvania in the 1950's and they have nothing to do with a game bird? They are just midget chickens with stumpy little legs. Why would you know that? We coagulated at Coonies as close to 7 as we could make. And just like the show there was lots of last minute drama. I personally think the event was absolutely TV ready. Jims baked bird in the pineapple was way past cool. And Dianas All inclusive pizza was a hands down favorite. Evidently my anchovy dressing stuffed in a poblano stuffed in a hen was not what the judges were looking for. Randy hit a home run with his baked bird with a presentation that could have , I swear, been on the cover of a magazine. It was that pretty. Pretty enough to woo the judges in to a first place vote. Randy, you rock! Coonie and Donna maybe we'll do better next time.
Lots of ideas out there on the inter-web. How about this one. We know our little Island took a big hit last week with Tinas' departure. I'm sure we will try but we all know she cannot be replaced. Tina, from me to you, you deserve better. You're still a youngster so go out there and enjoy yourself. Know we love and miss you. To the rest of you Islanders how about this. Our little police force just took a shot. Inside and out. If you have one ounce of intellectual honesty you will admit they coddle us. As noted by some dumb-ass in a post last week new officers are told not to #$%^ with us. Don't know about you but I don't have a big problem with that. Every now and again someone shows their ass and has to be reigned in a tad but it beats getting tazed! How about we coddle back? A sort of police appreciation day? A little BBQ, lots of iced tea, some cold watermelon? Heck, Lets make it open to all the folks that help keep our little ship just the way we like it. How many of you know Jorge? Christy? Denise? How many officers can you name? I pick a Saturday in August, maybe prior to a Jammin' event? I'm in for a brisket and a chicken. Or we could reserver the club house if it's available and ask all the city employees that can make it wear a name tag so we can introduce ourselves and tell them thank you. KVFD? Hey Bernie, you wear your EMT gear and I'll serve you? What do you think. Lets put a band-aid on this fiasco and move forward.

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
