24 shopping days left...
That was fun, a progressive cocktail party. Thanks to all who hosted! We'll do it again and I've already had three folks volunteer as hosts for the next event. We need a theme that excludes tequila. Crap my head hurts.
I'm thinking my In-Laws left too early. They left a balmy south Florda for a big winter storm that's dumping snow all over England. Bummer.
Next Tuesdays Council meeting will be the first in a while. I'm going just to hear what the hell is going on in our search for a new City Administrator. Anybody heard anything? I'm up for a good rumor. Paul is retiring in a matter of weeks and I don't think they have interviewed anyone yet. It's not like I've never left anything to the last minute but hey, this is a pretty big deal. I still don't know how I feel about hiring someone who doesn't live here. And before you flame me, I know Paul doesn't live here but he's been here longer than a lot, if not the majority, of us. I keep thinking about what neighbor Chuck told me over a year ago. "A person should have to live here for more than 10 years before they can be eligible for office. It takes at least 10 years before people get this place". Every time I re-run that statement in my mind it makes more sense. Thanks for the enlightenment Chuck. I don't know who all has put in an application for the job though. Maybe we'll luck out and hire someone who "gets this place".
I'm going for aspirin.
Insanity runs in my family. It practically gallops.
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
