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

142

Guess what I found out at sunset on Friday? Our fair city is turning the big 50 next year! Now THAT’S a reason to celebrate! I’ll find out what the exact date is and post it here but for now we need to marshal our collective (yours anyhow) talents and start brainstorming. Lets’ get some of these ideas to the Mayor and Council and lets’ see what we can pull off. Maybe a series of events leading up to the big day? Everyone on the band wagon. Police department, City Staff, Parks, Pool, Hey all you folks at Watergate, Legend Point and Port-o-Fino y’all don’t want to miss this. Let’s hear from our Lazy Bend neighbors too! Who is our POC at Stewart these days? Talk to Mrs. Moses and see if Stewart wants to join in. All you artistic and creative types (MJ) what about a 50th Logo? T-Shirts? Anyone out there want to talk about corporate sponsorships? There is already one time capsule planted in the city, Do we want to plant another? Is this the time to go for the largest golf cart parade in Texas? We can use this blog to form a steering committee and let it roll from here. Ready, Set, Let your creative juices flow!
That’s right, it wasn’t a typo. There is a time capsule buried near the Club House. It was moved a few years back and I’m not sure who knows exactly where it is but that will be half the fun in another 40 years. The Civic Club planted it about 6 or 7 years ago on its 40th anniversary. Remember that.
I had a brain fart coming over the bridge the other day. Before I forget kudos to Diana Chronister and the parks committee for making the ride in look special. Once you get past the mud lots it looks great! Back to the brain fart. It would require 12 volunteers. It would start on Christmas day and the first volunteer has to have a pear tree. You can use a paper partridge if you want. Since we don’t have Turtle doves on this continent we’ll have to get creative and either use mourning doves (like anyone is gonna know) or something. The second volunteer would place a couple of birds somewhere on their property. Three French hens could get tricky but we have plenty of neighbors who have hens so we’re nearly there. I had to look up Colly birds. Just ordinary blackbirds could work. What’s up with all the birds? Anyway you see where I’m going with this. Or we could parody the whole thing? Just a thought. I got a million of ‘em.

He said "That's a mirror, dip-shit!
