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

WOOO HOOOOO!!

It's National Daiquiri Day!
The verdict is still not in on my new Masterbuilt electric smoker. I watched way too many videos on the youtube and mine just does not produce smoke like that. I think I’ll fire it up and do a reality check on the thermometer. I’m telling you right now the rack of ribs I pulled off on Saturday looked pathetic. And that was after 6 hours. Sumpm aint right.

Took W flying today. This was his 16th birthday present. What a hoot! Thanks iFLY Houston.




I’m working with some Civic Club folks on getting some new T Shirts/Tanks/Sweatshirts and hats for the Club’s 50th birthday next month. Neighbor Ross and I are also working on an online store for the club. Any ideas other? suggestions? Input? drop me a line.
