The bad news is looks like we can't even get a tropical storm. Friggin' Scotland can get one but we can't. The good news is Clear Lake Road is open!!
Y'all have a great weekend and we'll see you at the benefit. To Kathryn and Bernie McIntyre, Happy Anniversary and congratulations.
To anyone considering posting something ugly using anon. Think twice. Then don't do it. I will delete any ugly posts.
See you at sunset!!
Well, CLS may now be in a state of change. Congress got dysfunctional and now has a 12 % approval rating. If CLS Council had a satisfaction survey today, approval would be very low. I know six tribes can unite against one. We might be at a tipping point in CLS. I’ll bet those in power in CLS right now think they are winning – they have been for a long time. One gets complacent – just like maybe the Chief did. One important issue is that the coalition in power now is not ONE tribe – it is at least two plus a pawn to be used at ill which makes THREE sometimes. How to break that power? Simple – get rid of one player. That will happen next May, I believe. But, that is a temporary fix without understanding the Tribes of CLS. I think the bottom may be about to fall out of CLS, but maybe we can engineer real change here.
The North Shore coalition picked the wrong fight and rocked the boat too hard. The boat is beginning to spin out of control. Of course, a hurricane or a complete turnaround in the market may blunt that. We would be oblivious in our misery with a hurricane or ecstatic being richer in a better economy. Craig would have too many lawns to mow and Roselyn too many houses to sell to pay attention. And we citizens would all become even more complacent. And then we leave it to the control freaks to take over – from whatever tribe is organized with the best looking control freak. But, if what is in the news remains Bernie, Tamie, Jackie, retaliation, wasting tax payer’s money, no movement on city projects, dysfunctional government – think change. Educate the population on real balance in government – think real lasting change, at least for a generation. May be it is the CLS Dawn. But let’s not let it swing all the way the other way and get a gate and guard on Clear Lake Rd. and a high rise where Al and Tommy used to live – or, God forgive, in Sundial Park. Balance.

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
