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

Thursday May 23rd

Ready for the first long weekend of summer? Ready for hurricane season? Ready for the 8th annual Drag Race? The answer needs to be yep, I hope so and hellya!

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!
This missed the post for a lot of reasons. To all you good folks on Hawthorne and Grove and anyone who else interested, the Roads and Drainage committee is going to try something a little different on your street. At the recomendation of the City Engineer (Brad) those two street will be repaved with concrete instead of asphalt. Want to know more? Contact the R&D folks.  
Y'all have a great weekend and take a minute Monday to reflect on why you have the day off.
