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

Hard to believe it’s been four years isn’t it? Wow. If memory serves we lost 54 houses from our little island. 54 houses and 4 business’. I guess it’s all a weird sort of evolution. Only the strong survived and the rebuilds like ours are now stronger than ever. Still, 4 years. Like the old cigarette ad said, “You’ve come a long way baby”. Don’t know about you but I never want to work that hard again.

This has been bugging since I typed it and I think I just figured out why. I am flattered that someone, however misguided, thinks I have power more than required to start my lawn mower. My 12 year old even knows better. Now that I’ve put it behind me it makes sense though. They just don’t get it. They don’t get that it’s not me. It’s us. It’s you. I think that is a totally foreign thought to some folks. How sad. I think it finally filtered through my thick skull while reading all the well wishes from the readers. As long as the pettiness focuses on me, we will always win. I’m in. Bring it bitches.
