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 Sock Day again.

And it's Definitely December. Looks like we'll finish out the year with a 14+" rain fall surplus. Depending on how much more we get before it stops. My front deck rain Gage has collected over 6 inches in the past 24 hours. That's a lot of rain.

I will keep trying to get updated pics of the new Okies Corner for the blog but Rob and I have been missing each other for over a week. We'll get there.

Dog story with a happy ending. The dumped dog from last week has been reunited with it's owner. Great neighbors took him to the groomer and got him cleaned up. Then someone recognized it as a possible lost dog. Owners were contacted and Voila! Win Win Win. That's just good Karma. Can't wait for it to catch up with the dumpers.

Here's the City Agenda for Tuesday's meeting. It's a definite need to be there.

Vern Johnson, Mayor Bryan Hoerner
S. Bud Solmonsson
