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

Take your Pick!



It’s National Leave the Office Early day (I’m in) It’s also National Bubba Day, I guess we could make that AKA National Beaudreaux Day for our Coonass friends and last but certainly not least Is National Rocky Road day! Win-Win-Win.

Looks like the lady who is feeding the birds/ducks/geese/rats/nutria is getting a lot of attention. I really don’t think there is anything to be done about her. From some of the comments I’ve heard from folks who have spoken to her she doesn’t give a shit what we think. Imagine that.

Don’t forget the Hurricane workshop on Wednesday. It’s at the Club house. If you’ve never been you need to go, If it’s been a while you should go to get the scoop on things that have changed since Ike.


This one broke, anybody got an extra?

AB,
What broke? The wood for your engine mount? You find the raw material, bring a cold one for me, and I'll turn you loose in my shop.
