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

Happy National Spicy Guacamole day

Or National Pickle day if you'd rather. What a gorgeous weekend and so far today is looking even better. I guess there are a couple of ways to celebrate the fact that summer is finally over. Local tree rats are like
Or with even more pizazz you can attempt this. Boardin' like a boss.
Note. You damn well better have your shit in one sock before you go there. Yes. That is a beanbag chair. Rock on Neighbor!!

Did you watch  60 minutes last night? I did. Seems some of the media is still confused. Lesley Stahl kept referring to Trumps "surprising" win. Methinks the reason they are still surprised is simply because they were too busy listening to themselves. They should have been listening to us. But I guess it's only fair. I quit listening to them years ago.

Here's an example of what the hell is wrong. The Governor of Oregon, Kate Brown, (guess which letter follows her name) has ordered her National Guard to block off all entrance ramps to the freeway so the "protestors" blocking the freeway wouldn't get hurt. What a moron.

And the d-bag leading the senate minority is howling about the fact that the popular vote winner didn't win. Do the good people of Nevada realize they elected a dumbass?

Kudos the the Civic Club for putting on the annual Thanksgiving Feast. Perfect weather, Great turnout and awesome food. Job well done to all.
