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

aaaaand we're off!


November already. Ready to set your clocks back. Uh-Huh. Saturday night before you go to bed.
Put this under the go figure column. You live in New Jersey or New York and you just got a whoopin. You’re cleaning out what’s left of everything you own when you hear that there’s more crappy weather coming right up. Damn. What is the first thought in your mind when you hear emergency crews are being turned away from your area. Because they are non union. I would want someones ass on a pole. But that’s just me. One more in a long list of reasons I don’t live there.

Speaking of a hurricane, admittedly I didn’t have a TV for many months after Ike but did I miss all the benefits for Ike victims?

You have this weekend to relax and get rested up for the rest of the month. Next weekend is the City’s 50th Celebration
Weekend after that is thethe Thanksgiving Feast at the Club House
Weekend after that is the Police BBQ Fundraiser and possibly the next Movie Night.
I need a nap.

Club news. Real slim attendance at the Civic Club meeting last night. Reeeeeal slim. What’s it gonna take to get you off yer butts and come out for an hour a month? Tell me, I’m all ears. Come on don’t be bashful. Surprise me. You elected me as your President knowing full well what was in store. You wanted more, we’re giving you more. Right now it’s looking like the more we give the less I’m seeing you. We are still in need of some volunteers for the Clubs Thanksgiving Dinner. Specifically some muscles for helping around the kitchen on Friday. I’ll send our more info in a bit.

I am up in NY and PA again. YES it is cold. A bunch of the people who were supposed to run the marathon before it got cancelled turned that into a win. Some held their own runs and home and donated their NY travel expenses and donations from others to Red Cross. Another group that was in NY already bought supplies and did a "run" through statton island delivering supplies to the hardest hit. Very cool thing to see the support people give each other and first hand see what is really going on instead of what is in the news

I heard a rumor that because of sandy voting is changed across the nation. I heard if you are voting for Romney , you need to vote tomorrow. If you are voting for Obama you will need to vote on Wednesday. That's what I heard anyway.
