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

It's MLK Day here in the U.S.

The Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. would have been 87.  It's almost time for some more Civil Disobedience.

No joy in Mudville. We were installing the galley hardware in the trailer when the rain started Saturday and after two consecutive rains with zero leaks we were treated to a brand new one. And it is a doozy. Chore one for today is to silicone the living shit out of the hole. Once I find it. Chore two is to get D-Con for the varmints that are trying to move in under the house. 

What a beautiful day we had yesterday. Upper 50's and an almost cloudless sky. A great day to go to Galveston. So we did. On a 2004 Grand Banks 46(?). Great day, Great folks and a Great boat. I've done worse.


A shout out to Paul and Tina who drop in on this site occasionally. Stop by some time! And I'll make sure y'all get an invite to the  next crawfish boil, that'll be coming up shortly.

Hello Allen, I am glad to see your blog is back. Any idea or thoughts on the house that has been lifted on blocks for what seems like a year on Clear Lake Road? I realize we do not have a HOA, but is there some type of city ordinance that doesn't let this eyesore continue for another year? Regards
