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

Parade eve


Farmer’s Market tomorrow! They sure have grown!! Lots of new vendors too. See you there.

The Parks Committee was at the Civic Club meeting last night. They wanted everyone to know they have not only extended the cutoff date for ordering custom bricks they have reduced the price by half! That’s right they are only $25 a pop and the money goes to support our parks. You can find a contact at the City’s website http://www.clearlakeshores-tx.gov/ under Boards and committees.

Mardi Gras Parade is tomorrow! Everyone is welcome to join in the fun BUT remember trophys for Best in Show and 1st, 2nd, and 3rd can only be awarded to Club Members! Yes you can join/renew at the parade.

FEMA “Open House” to be held February 20 in the Ballroom of the League City Johnny Orolfo Civic Center from 2:00 p.m. until 8:00 p.m.   This is located at 400 West Walker.   At the open house, FEMA officials will be present to help area residents with any questions regarding flood insurance and there should be some information on probable changes in the flood insurance rating system.

Also, they will be able to show individual property owners the elevations of their property and where it is in relationship to the BFE (base flood elevation). 
It would be appreciated if you could help us publicize this event.

A guy sees a sign in front of a house: "Talking Dog for Sale."
He rings the bell and the owner tells him the dog is in the backyard. The guy goes into the backyard and sees a black mutt just sitting there.
"You talk?" he asks.
"Sure do." the dog replies.
"So, what's your story?" The dog looks up and says, "Well, I discovered my gift of talking pretty young and I wanted to help the governme...nt, so I told the CIA about my gift, and in no time they had me jetting from country to country, sitting in rooms with spies and world leaders, because no one figured a dog would be eavesdropping. I was one of their most valuable spies eight years running."
"The jetting around really tired me out, and I knew I wasn't getting any younger and I wanted to settle down. So I signed up for a job at the airport to do some undercover security work, mostly wandering near suspicious characters and listening in. I uncovered some incredible dealings there and was awarded a batch of medals."
"Had a wife, a mess of puppies, and now I'm just retired."
The guy is amazed. He goes back in and asks the owner what he wants for the dog.
The owner says, "Ten dollars."

The guy says, "This dog is amazing. Why on earth are you selling him so cheap?"

"Cause he's a liar. He didn't do any of that $hit!"
