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

Good News

and Great News!

From the Civic Club

AND JASPER HAS BEEN FOUND!
Apparently he followed some folks who like to jog around our little slice of paradise. They ended up in West Kemah and the folks he followed were nervous about this pup being unescorted that close to 146. They had two options and picked the one that took Jasper home with them. They posted him on the local Craigs' List to no avail and talked to a few folks in west Kemah again to no avail. They called our City office and talked to one of the ladies who mentioned this blog and some of our lost dog posts. They checked it out and lo and behold discovered their new dogs name was Jasper and was indeed missed. I called and arranged a pick up time and Wyatt and I safely returned Jasper to his porch just a few minutes ago. All is well.

Here's you parks folks and the LBAC hard at it for your benefit. Tell 'em thanks next time you see 'em



From Councilman Booren
Clear Lake Shores,
I want to thank you for your generosity in donating items for the American Legion Post 521. I dropped everything off (five boxes!) yesterday, and to say they were excited about our donation is an understatement. Because of you, and the students at Stewart Elementary (who came together and donated their Halloween candy!), more of our veterans will have the items they need to help them move forward in their lives. I am so proud and humbled to be a part of this amazing community.

When I got in to work this morning, I had an email from the Post president, thanking me again. The snacks and candy will be used for their Bingo nights; and the sheets, towels, pillows, and laundry detergent will be used to assist formerly homeless veterans at the De George at Union Station get back on their feet. It gives me chills to know that the community I love so much cares enough to help complete strangers. What an amazing feeling!

Thank you really doesn't say enough, but that's all I know to say right now. From the bottom of my heart, thank you.

Stay warm!

Best,

Amanda

An admiral visits one of the ships under his command.
While eating breakfast with the crew he was impressed to see the naval insignia stamped on every biscuit.
He went to the Chief cook to ask how this feat was done, so it could be used on other ships under his command.
The Chief replied, "Well Admiral, after each one is cut out I just slap it here against my belt buckle which bears the insignia."
Horrified the Admiral exclaims, "That's very unhygienic!"
The Chief shrugs and replies, "If you feel that way sir, may
I suggest you avoid the donuts."

Glad to hear Jasper was found! Please remember to have him "chipped" when he is old enough.
