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

Mmmmmmm

This is much more like it. Great day to get a little boat work done. Before I forget, I am looking for a metal detector. I just need to borrow it for 15 minutes. WE need to locate the Lat / Long on the Time capsule the CLub buried 8 years ago. Any of you treasure hunters out there? Spread the word. Thanks.

Hello my friends!
April has been a very interesting and busy month for us, as we figure out how retirement works!  That said it has also been a very good month musically.
Tomorrow night I will be playing for 300~400 old surfers at the 1st Annual "Old Guys Surf Reunion" in Surfside TX, then hanging out at the beach for the rest of the weekend with them.  Many of them are friends of mine from the 60s!
OGSR will also pay special tribute Saturday morning to the ones who can't be here with a Hawaiian style memorial paddle out.
Sunday, April 27th I will be playing in the back courtyard of The Kemah Steak Company at 707 Bradford, Kemah, TX.  Jerry Diaz will kick it off at 3PM and I will play from 5 ~ 7.  They have the best steaks and wines in town!
Then on May 3rd, I will be playing my favorite Clear Lake Shores bar, Aspens Bar and Grill at 817 Clear Lake Road, CLS, TX.  This gig will also represent the "After Party" for the inaugural Jammin' On Jarboe Concert - 2014.  If you are going to Jammin', come on over when the cops make them turn the music off and party with the crew!
Lots of fun coming up....I hope you can join me!
Peace and Love!

 Reminder(s)
A 1,000-foot convoy carrying the nonprofit Space Center Houston’s historic shuttle carrier aircraft will journey home on an eight-mile trek through the bay area during the nights of April 28-29, arriving the morning of April 30.
Roads will close in stages so city workers and utility providers can dismantle streetlights, signs and utility poles as the convoy approaches and will re-open after it passes.
The portion of Highway 3 (Old Galveston Road) between its intersections with Scarsdale and NASA Parkway will close 9 p.m. to 6 a.m. Monday, April 28. Then on Tuesday, April 29, the westbound portion of NASA Parkway from Highway 3 to Saturn Lane will close 9 p.m. to 6 a.m. (See Route Map)
Thanks to extensive pre-planning efforts, no utilities are expected to be interrupted. The convoy will travel at night for the safety of our neighbors and the workers involved in this complex transfer, as well as to minimize the impact on local residents, the traveling public and businesses.
The project to disassemble and safely transport the massive airplane was done in partnership with 25 private, public, and government organizations, many of whom did the work for little or no charge.
Moving at walking speed, the convoy will carry the dissembled Boeing 747 sections on seven different trailers from Ellington Field. The largest section moving intact is the fuselage, measuring 25 feet wide, 35 feet high and over 180 feet long, which will travel on a Goldhofer multi-wheeled, self-propelled trailer.
Big Move Info Line: 281-244-2119.
Help us bring the 747 in for a landing!

There is a triathlon that involves the Kemah Bridge going on Sunday. you might want to factor that in your travel plans. Or not.

Have a great weekend.
