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

Seriously ?

National button day? Someone got bored.
OK, my second Monday in the unemployment line. I think I'm getting the hang of it I just have to downshift one more time. The ATA tournament in Sulpher Springs was a lot bigger than we thought. It was help at the SS middle school. They have two gyms which was a good thing because they were both packed. Wyatt usually signs up for 6 events and does well in all. This time his instructor signed him up for 2 other events at the last minute. He was on the edge of freaking out but maintained. Short version is he brought home two more First Place medals. Don't know if you can see them all but that is 6 First Place medals and 2 Second Place'. Not too shabby. I'm about to pop just typing this.


I'm not going blather on about the Religion of Peace and what those pigs pulled off in France. I'll just mention that the few times I've been to France are still some of my best memories. I hope they respond accordingly.
 Moving right along. I have the bathroom framed in and we have agreed on the shape and size of the dining table and seats. Now if my drip rail will just get here I can finish drying the bug in. Once I can prove to myself it will stay dry we can start making real progress. We were all out at the pier last night discussing the pros and cons of having a water heater on board. Just when we had settled on a plan Jim finds an on demand water heater that is just made for small spaces and it's too cheap to pass up. Looks like I need to change my plumbing plans.

Rumor mill has it there is a movement here on the Island to establish a Home Owners Association. Maybe not in those exact words but it sounds like some of our neighbors don't like the looks of some of the other houses on the Island and want to change them. That smells like a HOA to me. Fights On, See you at City Council.
