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 TAKE A CHANCE DAY


Every year on April 23rd National Take a Chance Day encourages us to break out of our comfort zone.

Most of us have unaccomplished goals or dreams. What if this was the day to take the chance to make them happen? Even if it is just the first step toward that goal, it will be one step closer than before. And straight from the Toyota commercial to you...
"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did. So throw off the bowline, sail away from the safe harbor, catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover. " Mark Twain
Uncertain where to start? Polish up that resume’, sign up for a foreign language class, or buy a pair hiking shoes. Those are all first steps to taking chances on new jobs, traveling to a foreign country, or hiking that trail. Ringin' any belles Tess?

What a difference 24 hours can make...

I just read the daily diatribe on Facebook. Short version is "... It doesn't matter, it doesn't matter, it doesn't matter, I don't know and I'll paraphrase here but it sounds a lot like and I'm smarter than the 40 plus people that have been working on this project for the last 6 years. I really hope that someone has notified Bernie via Facebook. If you were following this blog back in 2010 then you know he is laughing his ass off. And what's with spooking the neighbors? That's a Fuller move if ever there was one. Did you ask her how she feels about the proposed Motel 6 like strip center Keman has planned? It's a damn site closer to her door than Okies. Oh, never mind. It's the cities  COMMERCIAL ZONE. I need an aspirin.

Day three sleeping on the Purple. 👏👍👍. The only downside, and it's a reluctant  downside is all the plastic waste. I have no doubt they'll fix this in the future. Enjoy the cool snap, it's back to the 80's Monday.
