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 National Day of Giving

and it's Tuesday. I hope you had a great Thanksgiving. Never having been a big fan of turkey we are always on the lookout for something a little different. This year we had lamb. Our first time out we baked it in the oven and followed all the directions on the label. It was a little dry but edible. Quite tasty, and MJ added the obligatory mint sauce. Not bad at all. I think we'll do this again but pull it off the fire a few degrees early.

Sitting around a neighbors fire pit this weekend. Talk came up to the item that they had been robbed earlier in the week. They were not the only ones. That pisses me off. What broke my heart was to find out that it wasn't "contractors" or "garage sale people" or visitors. Out finest was quick to act and restitution was made and agreed to. Mostly.

Then there is the douchebag in the tan sedan that stopped just long enough at CLR and Forest to throw his dog out. Thank God for good folks like my neighbors who finally got it calmed down and took it ogg the street. There is a special place in hell for people like that.

Xenophobia has been titled "Word of the year" by Dictionary.com. Fear or hatred of foreigners. Hmmph.

CNN says they are looking for answrs in the OSU shooting. I thought the terrorist was pretty clear on his Facebook post. But thats just me.

Too much downer news lately. Thank God the Country elected Trump or there wouldn't be any upside. 😏

Off to the Post Office....
