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

Come on Friday...

Before I forget again, I have to say well done Clear Lake Shores. You did it again. This years (9th) annual Drag Race offered something different. Instead of just being "eclectic" it was asking for donations to a worthy cause. I think it was neighbor Paula who suggested the Race benefit the Houston Food Bank but I could be wrong. Short version, Of the 150 or so that came out to cheer on your favorite contestant or just to root for all 16 entrants, you managed to donate 1 full pallet of food AND enough money to provide meals for 342 needy souls. That is just freakin; awesome. I love this place.



 From Neighbor Dennis:
Hello Clear Lake Shores!
 I just wanted to take a minute and invite all of you out to a house concert featuring Matt Hoggatt. The house concert will take place on Sunday June 1, from 1-4PM at our house at 218 Clear Lake Rd.

If you are not  familiar with Matt he wrote a  song "Dear Jimmy Buffett" which won him a record contract with Jimmy Buffets record label Mailboat records. His music is heard on Margaritaville and Beachfront radio. Matt has been in our area before, performing at both Noah's Ark and T-Bone Toms. He's  preparing to release his second album on Buffett's Mailboat Records label. 

The house concert is open to everyone, and we are suggesting attendee's donate $10 to Matt in exchange for his performance. Bring your own drinks, snacks, and lawn chairs.

You can learn more, and reserve your seat by visiting http://www.piratesandpoets.net/live-at-the-lizard.html Feel free to email me or Jon Burns (jb@piratesandpoets.net) with any questions you have.

Thanks and we'll see you all on June 1! 


MT. VERNON, TEXAS, WHOREHOUSE SUES LOCAL CHURCH:
Diamond D's brothel began construction on an expansion of their building to increase their ever-growing business.
In response, the local Baptist Church started a campaign to block the business from expanding -- with morning, afternoon, and evening prayer sessions at their church.
Work on Diamond D's progressed right up until the week before the grand reopening when lightning struck the whorehouse and burned it to the ground!
After the cat-house burned the church folks were rather smug in their outlook, bragging about "the power of prayer." But late last week 'Big Jugs' Jill Diamond, the owner/madam, sued the church, the preacher and the entire congregation on the grounds that the church ... "was ultimately responsible for the demise of her building and her business -- either through direct or indirect divine actions or means."
In its reply to the court, the church vehemently and voraciously denied any and all responsibility or any connection to the building's demise.
The crusty old judge read through the plaintiff's complaint and the
defendant's reply, and at the opening hearing he commented:
"I don't know how the hell I'm going to decide this case, but it appears
from the paperwork, that we now have a whorehouse owner who staunchly believes in the power of prayer, and an entire church congregation that thinks it's bullshit."
