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

40 years ago



Long before the International Space Station was launched there was Mir. A lot of folks think it was the first Space Station. They would be mistaken. That honor goes to Skylab. Launched by NASA in 1973 it orbited the third planet from the sun for 6 years before burning up in re-entry in 1979.

The annual Island Wide Garage Sale is almost here. Tomorrow will be the last day to sign up AND still get your star on the map. That’s right an island map is handed out at the front of the island to all potential shoppers. And while it may not have a picture of your house on the map there will be a star placed in the general vicinity directing all those dollars to your door. Don’t wait any longer. 

PS if you have one of the CCISD signs in your yard and DON’T want the wire stand, the Civic Club would like to have it for our signs. Feel free to drop it off under my house. Thanks.

PPS. The Parks department will be running the Civic Club table at the Garage Sale. If you have anything you would like to donate to this worthy cause drop it off at the table or run down Ms. Pege or Dennis or any of the Parks committee folks.Dang this color is hard to read.

The first long weekend of summer is nearly here. School is nearly out and everyone will be making plans for that first long get away, Planning the family vacation, long trips to the beach, And the Drag Race!
This from neighbor Todd
It's that time again.  Time for your neighbors and friends to dress like a girl!
 Sunday, May 26th at Lowell Brown Sunset Park.
 The sun sets at 7:44 PM so let's line 'em up at 7:45 PM.
 Make sure to get there early, at least by 7:30 for pictures, cat calls, snarky comments about the other contestants and their outfits and make sure you have time to properly "influence" the judges.  
 Line the ladies up at 7:45p - they will take a lap around the park and then go before the judges one at a time.  THE winner will be chosen by a panel of random judges and then we all go prancing into the night for merriment and drink!  There will be an after-party at 634 Pine.  BYOB
 There are basically no rules other than you should try to keep physical contact (public displays of affection included) to a minimum and remember that there will be children at the event so try not to be too nasty... though 'nasty' is a subjective concept and it's open to interpretation.  
 Everyone is invited whether a CLS resident or not.  
 This is always a fun event and it brings a big crowd.  
If anyone has ideas about how we can capture this energy for a local charity next year we would like to hear them. Contact me at todd_ford@hotmail.com
  Looking forward to it ladies!
  Todd
