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

YAY FOR FRIDAY!

And a cold front. Anybody seen it yet? I voted last night. Early voting is definitely the way to go. No lines. I waltzed in to the Kemah Community Center and it was like a family reunion. The same ladies that were serving as election judges all three time I voted this year were there. We had a fun chat. They all remembered what a fun place Clear Lake Shores was when they were here in the Club House during the Island Wide Garage Sale. Can’t say I disagree.

I talked to Frank about the status of Chill. Not the news I wanted. It’s on hold until he can find a suitable partner. Sounds like the last one stiffed him good. Paul is planning his retirement party. He’s looking at after the first of the year. No assholes allowed so if you don’t get an invite…..

Farmer’s Market weekend
Hey, to anyone out there, and I know of a few, who were interested in cooking up goodies at the Farmers Market there is an opening! They are actively looking for a vendor to cook breakfast and or lunch. Unleash your inner Emeril and give Jennifer a call. Want to know what’s involved drop me a line and I’ll tell you more than you want to know.


HALLOWEEN PARTY!
Bring the kids in their costumes to the Club House at 1:00 pm on Saturday!  There will be lots of fun and games.
Be sure to bring your camera.
Please tell your neighbors who have children but might not yet be on our email list.  All are welcome.

50th update
Jarboe Park
Jumpy House for the kids
All sorts of special fun stuff from the City
BBQ will be served beginning at 11:00 until we run out or go home. If you can prove you are a citizen it’s free, if not it’s not. But it’s only $10.
The first band, The Clear Falls Jazz Band, starts at 11 and the last band, The StringBenders, a Zydeco band, ends at 5.
The Golf Cart Parade begins at Noon and ends as close to 1 as we can get, back at the Park for more food and music and fun. Remember this one is for the Texas record so invite your friends or anyone else who wants to be a part of this special event.

Movie Night is tonight! BeetleJuice is it and it’s at the Pavilion weather permitting. 
Children's Halloween party is tomorrow and Jane & Crew have the Club House looking great!

I hope you have your 50th T-Shirts ordered.   Monday we have to turn the order in. We have about 100 so far.   

Here’s a HEADS UP for next week so pay attention.
Kathy Smith here...wife of Wyatt Smith (residents of Clear Lake Shores & Civic Club members).   I am sending a request to you from my daughter Lindsey Uresti, a Senior at Clear Falls High School, and officer in the Theatre Department.   She asked if you could please send out the attached flier to residents on your email list here in Clear Lake Shores.    The Clear Falls High Theatre students will be in Clear Lake Shores on Halloween night collecting non-perishable canned goods for the less fortunate (see attached flier)....all cans will be donated to Interfaith Caring Ministries.  

Clear Falls High Theatre has chosen CLS as the neighborhood to collect from this year.   The students will be collecting from 7:30-9:00pm on Halloween night, Wednesday, 10/31/12.    We hope to get the info. out on the marque board early next week and would appreciate your help in sending out the attached flier to CLS residents.



And for my inlaws, who I found out mere moments ago, are coming for a long overdue visit...
  I was in a bar last Saturday night, and drank a few, and noticed two very large women by the bar.
 They both had pretty strong accents, so I asked, "Hey, are you two ladies from Ireland ?" 
 One of them chirped saying, "It's WALES , you friggin' idiot!" 
 So, I immediately apologized and said, "I'm sorry. Are you two whales from Ireland ?" 
 That's pretty much the last thing I remember.
