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

Fathers' Day

Was celebrated for the first time in Spokane Washington in 1910. But did you know it wasn’t made official until 1972 by none other than President Nixon!


UPDATE: Sienna has been found. Thanks all

Hi, I'm just moving into Lazy Lane and my dog got lose while a contractor was at my home today. Her name is Sienna, she is a two year old Yellow Lab with a red collar and a microchip, She is very friendly and playful and quite the wuss. I would love to reunite with her, If you have any info call 713-822-0494.

Lezlie, thanks for passing this info on.

Sincerely, Nancy Triggs



If you’re a Nickleback fan you may want to take note. Just heard from a critic on the current tour. “You can spend $45 for a ticket or you can buy 45 hammers at the dollar store, hang them from your ceiling at eye level and spend the weekend beating the demons from your head.” Ouch. Guess he’s a R&B fan.


The Civic Club is exploring options for movie licensing so we can have another Movie Night. We are currently talking to two different companies that offer this service. Dave is talking to the MPAA and I am talking to MPLC. Thanks for the heads up and lead to Swank from Friday’s post but the tattling was really not necessary. More here when we get it.

Glad NS wasnt there last night to hear the suggestion that Vern become City Manager when Paul leaves. Otherwise we would still be cleaning shit off the floor and chairs.

Kenny is still acting Chief and was given the power to do what he needs to do to clean house so we don't have a few cops running the City for NS. Glad the Council pointed out to him on Saturday that he needs to thoroughly document.

I am so proud of our new Council. They are doing a fantastic job so far.

righting the wrongs of the previous council and that a good thing!

Wow - yesterday I suggested we all try to work together on positive solutions to city issues instead of trying to tear each other down. I am terribly sorry to have caused so much anger with this comment. Certainly spend your off time as you wish and have a great day!! I believe I will go for a golf cart ride before the rain begins. Great council meeting.
