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 Presidents Day

Oopsies. tad quick on the enter button.
Congrats to Dave and Adelia for taking First Place in the Mardi Gras Golf Cart Parade! Your buggie looked awesome! And to Mike and Andrea (new folks on Forest) for second place. And I think I already said welcome to the island but just in cse I didn't, Welcome to the Island! And last but in no way least was the Krewe de Mamou took third, kickin' it old school! A fabulous turnout all along the route and Huge Thanks to Chief Cook and his krewe for keeping everyone safe. And from what I saw that was no small task. I hope you got your fill of beads.
Word on hte street is it will be standing room only at the Council meeting tomorrow night. Looks like they want to spend another 10k on another investigation. Anyone keeping score? How many investigations, legal or otherwise, have we had in the last 8 months? Other than a morale issue and a lack of procedures has anything turned up? Throw me a bone here, anything at all? 72 more days.......

Did you know?

WE (THE TAXPAYERS OF CLEAR LAKE SHORES) DON'T WANT ANOTHER AUDIT/INVESTIGATION THAT IS GOING TO WASTE ANY MORE OF OUR HARD EARNED MONEY.

ARE YOU ON THE COUNCIL LISTENING????

Anon 319. I agree 200% but sign your name to your statement to give it some validity. What could possibly keep you from signing your name to your post? I don't get it. Then show up tomorrow, stand up, introduce yourself and let these idiots have it with both barrels. I encourage everyone to come out and voice their opinion on both sides of the issue.

Thanks for the welcome, Alan! Second place in the parade actually went to the buggie behind ours - the 'metamorphosis' themed cart with the butterflies and the winged dog. We did receive an honorable mention, though. Embarrassingly, it was for showing up for the parade on the wrong day...In any case it was a wonderful day - great parade, great decorations, great crowd!

So glad the community will be a force to deal with at the CC mtg on Tues. The 3 blind mice need stopped and our opposition helps. After Tues. they only have 4 more mtgs to screw up with their crap!

Four more then they go! Hang in there Paul. Kick ass Vern!

I never thought I would see the day when a live chicken would lose out to plastic flamingos.

Next year we are going live pig. Just a warning....

Congratulations, Dave and Adelia, It was a great event.
