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

First Tweet?

More like Twitters great, great, great grandpa…. On May 24, 1844, Samuel F.B. Morse transmitted the message, "What hath God wrought!" from Washington to Baltimore as he opened America's first telegraph line.


This is one of those good news bad news stories. Remember Leo from yesterday? The wayward Pomeranian? Frank and Val’s dog. Well he has been found. Seems he was hiding under the bed. Hiding you say? Yep hiding from a butt whoopin’ for pinchin’ a bisquit on the floor. Bad dog.


This just in from neighbor Rob! The date has been set for WW IV and it’s July 4th! Now since that date is the same as the Civic Clubs Golf Cart Parade and Picnic in the park we need to get some rules in place. Watch this space for more.

Space shuttle replica readies for Houston trip


Central Florida News 13
Another space shuttle is preparing to leave the Space Coast forever.
Space shuttle Explorer, the replica that used to be displayed in front of the Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex, will be loaded onto a barge and sent to Houston.
The shuttle replica has been a staple of the Space Coast since its installation in 1993. It was built using the same blueprints that were used to build the space shuttles.
Explorer will be sent to Johnson Space Center's Space Center Houston tourism center.

Word on the street is that Jackie Fuller was FINALLY filed on by CLS for his junkyard. Did I hear right? $1,000 a day since the ticket was issued. Sounds fair for what it has cost his neighbors and this community, let alone the resources of the city. How long has he violated ordinances? I know it has been at least 5 yrs. but maybe 10. This is not his first violation either. Some people have to learn the hard way. Oh wait... what am I thinking? Some people never learn.

Bravo Vern for taking Jackie to task. Is this the type of lawsuit that the loser pays attoney's fees? I heard Richard was taking picutes. Thank you sir. Thanks need to go to Rose for leading the citizens' charge. And to Jack, too. Will testimony be needed from the community? That will be one long line. Please post the date so we can attend.

Can't wait till the biggest golf cart parade and City 50th. You bet Dave and I will be there. I have started to think how we could decorate - it will have to be something really special. Thanks for all who are putting this together. You can rely on us to help. I have my grandson coming to see the shuttle come in. It still makes me cringe a little to hear the words "replica" but I still think it is a historical event worth the honor. Have a great weekend "girls" Wish I could be there but I am off earning money. I can say I will be cooler than you guys in a temperature kind of way.

Man, the Island feels like a whole new place since the election. The Anons have crawled back into their holes, Jackie got served papers, and the North Shore crumedgeons have been silenced. Maybe they will take up quilting or something.

And what a victory it was! The best part to me was Jackie getting smoked. Did he reaaly think he had a chance? And Chernecke getting crushed even though he was "asked by Guthrie to run". That was his statement at Candidates Night. Was the supposed to mean something? Was that supposed to make a difference? Guthrie is even more out of touch with this place than the McIntyres and Jean and Larry. Saying that Guthrie was his backer probably hurt Chernecke.

It is a new day folks, a day that has been long is coming. Let's make the most of it.
