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

Happy Fathers’ Day

Hallelujah it looks like we might get some rain. As long as that tropical mass doesn’t fall apart the middle of next week is looking good! Come on rain!!

Sounds like we had a visitor on our little island. Ex Officer Bill Young was driving around the island yesterday. Yep he even had time to stop for a quick chat with a few folks. The fired officer spotted a Save the Chief sign in one yard and noted to the current occupant that he had been brainwashed. Seems an odd thing to say don’t you think?  This is the same Bill Young who was selling insurance while on our payroll. Let me rephrase, while on the clock and out of our police car. The way I understand it he even managed a sale or two. Something oily about an insurance salesman that’s packing …….the funny part is when one neighbor asked why he would be cruising around the island that fired him, yes, the same one he sued, and settled, (from lack of sales?) his answer was ….wait for it…..”because I have the right to”…..wow. This is where I would insert a wink. What a great answer. Someone speculated he was counting signs. There are over a hundred Mr. Young.  With another hundred being delivered tomorrow. Maybe he was here to visit his new friend on council. He should have called first. Wait, that wouldn’t work because she is not answering her phone….
Speaking of City Council, This question is for you John and Jane Q Public… How do you feel about one of your elected officials, yes, your public servants, refusing, not vomiting out a well rehearsed song and dance routine like we see on TV, but refusing to answer a simple question? Makes me twitch. Mostly at the keyboard.

I’m sure Tillman Fertitta is a follower of this blog so I would like to give him and his crew over at the Kemah Boardwalk a big shout out for their Friday Fireworks. They changed a few up and my new favorite is the circle with the star inside of it. That is way past cool. Mr. F your business case for this expenditure aside, I would like to say thanks. I’m one of those old enough to remember fireworks when they were only on the Fourth of July. They were special. To many others and me they still are. I still ooooh and aaahhhhh but every now and again I hear others doing the same. Their beauty, grace and symbolism still hold our undivided attention. Thanks for a great 15 minute break in this crazy world. Sincerely.

To all you water bugs out there in the Official Yachting Capitol of Texas have you checked out the Salty John link over there on the right? It’s a boaters blog from across the pond. Don’t miss the good stuff.

Hey, if you haven’t had the opportunity please take a second to sign the online petition.  And yes it seems a spammer has posted a link on our petition. Don’t do them the favor of clicking the link. They will probably make a penny or a fraction of one for hijacking your browser.  There is a special place in hell for these aholes. We are working to get it removed. Thanks for dropping in now go enjoy the rest of your weekend.

Good morning Bernie.
