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

We are blessed with the rain here but there are others that are truly hurtin'. While this little sprinkle here and there goes a long way to save our lawns read the article here to get a feel for the others affected by this drought. So when you see a neighbor breaking the water rules, gently remind them we are in a drought and there are restrictions in place. When you're ready for your rain barrel remember all you have to do is contact Carrie. She lives on Oak. That's her in the Islander.

You can also get rain barrels in Bacliff at BayTec. Different colors and sizes. Don't just sit there whining, do something about it!

More about the amazing Mr. Derry. We had a picture done by him of our header picture from the blog. It was taken by Mel's Dad, Salty John when he was here last. Copper worked his magic and I am here to tell you it is take your breath away awesome. Copper I have more business on the way. I have some old photos in dire need of restoration.

Some people walk in the rain, others just get wet.

OH MY GOD/BUDDAH !!! There is a new business next to Hoagie Ranch in Kemah, called Siam Thai Massage, opened by two Thai women. You haven't lived until you have a Thai massage. They massage you with their feet and elbows and then end it by massaging your back with warm rocks and Tiger Balm. Joe and I did a couples massage (photo attached) and they have several solo rooms decorated the same. Treat yourself. 281-538-2000 Open 9 am to 9 pm

Thanks Roselyn for that news. I saw that place and thought it was one of those "happy ending" spas that are popping up all over Houston. So they are legit?
