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 Christmas Eve!

Did I mention my favorite part of our little vacation? We pulled in to the driveway too close to midnight after a very long day. Everyone was glad to be home and looking forward to our own beds. One last hike up the stairs and we're in. We have a key-less entry system on the door. Which is a good thing since we collectively suck at keeping up with keys. Wyatt was first up so he enters the code and .....zip. Please dear GOD don't let it be a dead battery. MJ is next and as Wyatt is quickly reaching critical mass she intervenes and re-enters the code. I am halfway up the stairs when I hear the deadbolt slide back. A sigh of relief. Mel grabs the knob and turns to open. While I am not opposed to obscenities in print I will not type the parade of sounds that next crossed my ears. All I could manage was a half sincere "calm down". The door knob was locked. Remember that bit about keys? No clue where the key for the knob is so we never lock it. Perfect. Knowing the outcome we had to check the front door just because. I am now praying for an unlocked window. Thanks to the little cold front last week we found one close to the door so all it cost me to get in was a screen. Welcome home. I think I'm glad our neighbors are sound sleepers.

Here's two of your friends and neighbors representing
