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

Out Like a ...

Lamb.
Happy Friday and what better way to celebrate National Tater Day!
Baked – Boiled – Steamed – Roasted – Mashed – Fried – Grilled – Scalloped – French Fries – Cottage Fries – Hash Browns – In Stew – In Soup – Potato Salad – Potato Dumplings – Potato Pancakes.
Your pick. This day may have originally had a different meaning.  At the beginning of April, there is a celebration of the sweet potato (Tater Day) in parts of Kentucky.  Sweet potatoes are one of the main cash crops in that area.  Tater Day started way back in the early 1840s with the trading and selling of sweet potatoes.  It is the oldest continuous trade day in the United States.

My Pal Jim turned me onto a better way of baking spuds years ago and I haven't wrapped one in foil since. Coat them with a nice olive oil, Apply your favorite rub or spice. If you eat the skins like we do this is your desert. Put them on the grill at 400 for about an hour and yum.
Day started off great with this discovery. It's over by the new Cabela's on 45.

Not open yet but it won't be long.
Coasting into a gorgeous Friday with a Whataburger jalapeno Cheese biscuit and sausage sandwich for breakfast and enjoying life. Stop at Target for a few weekends essentials like Blue Bell and ribs. Grab a basket, heading into the first aisle, look down and BINGO! Instant Buzz kill. This is to the person who left this in the basket,

 YOU ARE A NASTY ASSHOLE AND I HOPE YOU HAVE 2 FLAT TIRES AT THE SAME TIME. STAY THE HELL OUT OF OUR TARGET AND KEEP YOUR NASTY ASS AT WALMART YOU PIG.
A nice shout out Galveston County Sheriffs Office. Wyatt and I were in the process of putting the Mako back in the water and came upon said GalCo Deputy at the boat ramp. From his pick up he woooop-woooped a small run about in the channel and pulled them over for throwing a huge wake! Atta Boy GCSO!! He asked if we were interested in a courtesy safety inspection and afterwords pointed out that I was missing my fire extinguisher. A phone call latter and new fire extinguisher is on board.
