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

It's Hot Fudge Sundae Day ! :o)
Have a great weekend Clear Lake Shores.....

Here's an update from neighbor Bud. Pass this along.


 My housekeeper (maid) for over 5 years has an opening because her client is moving out of state.  She is honest, reasonable, and comes to work on time.  She comes to my house every two weeks,  She cleans one other house on the Island and has an opening on Fridays am.  Call me if you want information at 409 789 7310
 Thanks

A young Army officer was severely wounded in the head by a grenade, but the only visible, permanent injury was that both of his ears were amputated.  Since his remaining hearing was sufficient, he remained in the Army. 
Many years later he eventually rose to the rank of Major General. He was, however, very sensitive about his appearance. One day the General was interviewing three servicemen who were candidates for his headquarters staff.  The first was a Captain, a tactical helicopter pilot, and it was a great interview. At the end of the interview the General asked him, "Do you notice anything different about me?' 
The young officer answered, 'Why, yes, Sir, I couldn't help but notice that you have no ears.'  The general was displeased with his lack of tact and threw him out. 
The second interview was with a Navy Lieutenant, and he was even better.  The General then asked him the same question,  "Do you notice anything different about me?'  He replied sheepishly, 'Well, sir, you have no ears.' The General threw him out also. 
The third interview was with a old Sergeant Major, an Infantryman and staff-trained NCO. He was smart, articulate, fit, looked sharp, and seemed to know more than the two officers combined.  The General liked this guy, and went ahead with the same question, 'Do you notice anything different about me?'  To his surprise the Sergeant Major said, "Yes, sir, you wear contact lenses.' 
The General was very impressed and thought, "'What an incredibly observant NCO, and he didn't mention my ears.'  He asked, 'Sergeant Major, how do you know I wear contacts?'  "Well, sir,' the soldier replied, "'It's pretty hard to wear glasses with no f---ing ears​

AB, Wish you had a like button similar to Facebook - Notify the Gov. is awesome!

Has anyone noticed Brian C's "science experiment" home looks like an addition is being built. No way he got a permit. Was he on Council way back when? Only in CLS. Shut that build down, Mr. Mayor and City Inspector.

OMG, To prove I am not a robot there letters I can read!!!!! Thanks, AB
