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

Sorry,

But I missed National Rum day yesterday. Today is only National Thrift Shop Day. Not even close.

Reading The Telegraph this morning. in the travel section they had a title World's least friendly cities. Guess how many we had. 4 out of 10. Yep 40%. New Jersey had two. Worst on the list was Newark. Having been there it's no huge surprise. Atlantic City was number 5. Oakland Ca, was number three. Guess who sat between Lagos, Nigeria and Maputo, Mozambique? Detroit. Oh well.
Another 2 1/2 inches in my rain gauge and it looks like we have a little more coming. I'll take it. I'm kinda liking the no 90 temps.
