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

End of January already

That means there's a Civic Club meeting next Thursday. We have lots to talk about and get 2014 up and running. We'll start with Mancakes on the 15th and all the Yachty Gras festivities. We'd love to see you there.
Was in the Post Office the other day and saw this. Anyone recognize these faces?







Neighbor Ronnie shared this gorgeous photo of a dish sered up by the fairly new Marina Cafe. It's the one next to All That Blooms and the Scooter Store down on the bayou.
 

This from neighbor Nancy. It seems to me for being retired she sure is busy....
You may have roots, or live in Galveston County, or simply have the desire to support this most beneficial agency. The Family Service Center is the only non-profit agency in our area to provide mental health services to families and individuals of all ages and regardless of income level. It seems amazing to me that 100 years ago, the founders of this agency already knew that mental health services were needed to strengthen families. We still need these services most desperately today.

What a wonderful gift you can give to our community while enjoying a Valentine's gift to yourself at the same time. Please join me at the centennial celebration of the FSC on February 8, 2014. Contact me for additional details. This is certain to be a very special evening!! Don't miss it.

Stay warm and keep healthy,
Nancy

Did anyone notice the tire marks in the lot on Forrest @ CL Rd.? Sure hope parents are checking their teens' cars for mud. There is no reason to rip up someone's lot.

City Council Mtg. tomorrow. Interesting fence ordinance change is on the agenda.

Anyone want to make a bet that Janet Horton will not have to pay fines for her home fence or her husband's Jarboe kayak business fence? Both are in violation. Their fence along the bayou isn't even on their own property!

Does J Horton's have every city official wrapped around her little finger? Why else would they have given them "No Parking" signs for his Jarboe kayak business? The fence there needs to be the proper height AND only be on their property.

So THAT is what has been going on at that sliver of land on the south side of Birch Road. I have always wondered. When the recent fence was erected, which is unsightly at best and certainly does not blend-in with the rest of the community, I thought it was the beginning of a dog park or goose/duck pen here in CLS.
