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

National Animal Crackers Day

Just in case you were wondering it was Swai. You can read all about them all over the interwebs. Like anything and everything there is good and bad press but that's our modern life and you get to make the call. Me and Momma liked it and odds are I'll get more this week and see how it works on a grill. 38 lbs of it was fried up just for our Easter enjoyment. That went with 20 pounds of Fries/Tater-tots and 8 lbs. of yummy hush puppies. And don't forget the 5 pounds of Chicken nuggets for the little ones.

Still waiting for Elevation Express to provide our "new" elevation certificate. They were supposed to be here last week...

When relocating Chloe last week we discovered these little jewels.
Yep. Termites. When you live in a wooden house you need to know these things. Got a recommendation from a neighbor for Enviro-Pest. They are local so I gave them a call. Will brought his own shovel. He crawled all over my house and the good news is there were no signs of activity on the house. He gave me a to do list and pointed out some issues I was totally unaware of. Good job. He definitely gets my recommendation, so if you are in need give 'em a buzz. They remove uninvited varmints too.

So according to CNN this assclown is
"Maxine Waters is having a moment"
Waters: Can I help you? What do you want?
Reporter: Can you tell us anything about the discussion?
Waters: No, it's classified. And we can't tell you anything. All I can tell you is the FBI director has no credibility.
