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

Day of the Hump

Happy (yesterday) Birthday to
The Space Station. No not the ISS. The first manned Space Station. No not Mir either, Skylab. It was launched in 1973.
In 1934 - In Bienville Parish, LA, Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow were ambushed and killed by Texas Rangers. The bank robbers were riding in a stolen Ford Deluxe. How many of you ever got to see the car? Remember when they used to have in on tour at the Harris County Fair? Well, technically it was the North Harris County Fair and it was held at the Northline Mall. It was awesome.

Hey speaking of Space ships who has special plans for the Explorer arrival a week from Friday? I want to hear about it. It sounds like there will be traffic issues to be worked out and I’ll pass along anything I hear from Chief Cook.

This from Neighbor Neeltje, Heads UP on North Shore! Sounds like Frank and Val have miss placed Leo. Leo is a Pomeranian and they live right next to Merrimans on North Shore. Keep an eye out for Leo y’all!

Memorial Day Weekend is coming up!
Sunset on Sunday, May 27th is at 8:15 pm.
That sounds like a good time to dress up like girls and race around the park!
Everybody show up a little early (7:00) to prance around, criticize the ''ladies'' behind their
backs and politely compliment them to their pretty faces. Maybe pose for a few pictures and
marvel at how they can walk in THOSE shoes.
At 8:15 pm all contestants for the 7th Annual Clear Lake Shores Drag Race Extravaganza
will be called to the starting line!
Once they're on their marks and their ''get's" are set - THEY'RE OFF!
One lap around Lowell Brown Sunset Park and back to the finish line.
Then one by one they'll go before the judges and this years Clear Lake Shores
DRAG QUEEN will be crowned!
Everyone is welcome to enter. Nothing is for sale, (except maybe a couple of
judges). Nothing is off-limits. (Please keep in mind that there will be plenty of children
and innocent eyes at the event - don't be too nasty....) Special thanks to Ann Reyna for leading the judging committee.
It's a thankless job, but the bribes are good..... ; )
We will post some hints about judging criteria next week.
This is a non-political event and there are plenty of off-island contestants and observers so let's have a good time, keep it clean and remember: we never discuss anything that happens at a party after the drag-race. (Which reminds me - Glen Dowell, do you still have my bra?)

Todd and Bryan

And this just in from head judge Ann Reyna:

We're pretty much set on what we'll do for the Drag Race. We'll be looking for:


Femininity (looks like a girl)

Walkabililty (Runway walk)

Do-ability (self explanatory)


And probably just looking to see who's hot. :-)


Diane and Jennifer have made an awesome sash and I picked up a silver sequined crown for the winner.

Wondering if I am the only one wishing Jarboe Jam was this weekend. Not just because of the holiday, but to celebrate the landslide election results as a community. With the way the results came in, we were not able to celebrate as a group!

Plans are coming together for CLS's record breaking golf cart parade. Keep the ideas coming!
The tentative date is Nov. 11th. So far... state and county dignaties will be invited. Our Mayor and Council will lead along with our City Admin. and city employees.Previous mayors and council members will be towards the front along with any digitaries that participate (judges, sheriffs, commissioners, etc.)

Some folks want to decorate their carts to commemorate something historical and some hysterical. Some don't need to be decorated at all.

If you want to get involved, in any way, let me know.
