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 EAT WHAT YOU WANT DAY

Observed annually on May 11, National Eat What You Want Day is about having one day a year of eating with no regrets. Whether you love donuts or fast food, today is your day to indulge without feeling guilty. Chili cheese dogs, greasy hamburgers, french fries, potato chips, cake, cookies, candy and ice cream are just a few of the things you can enjoy today without remorse. Decadent food is definitely on the menu today.
Created by Thomas and Ruth Roy of wellcat.com, Eat What You Want Day is just a way to enjoy life with friends and family. Many nutritionists even agree that “taking a short break” from your diet regimen is actually good for you.
I had Mamacitas' Fajitas. 

1984 is over. Wuuuuu? I've been scanning in old Islanders and just finished 1984. The Gazebo at Deep Hole park was dedicated as were the two Live Oak trees. Sorry to say we lost both of them to Hurricane Ike. Neighbor Eva'a late husband, Judge Thatch was mentioned as the ribbon cutter on the newly opened Seabrook Kemah bridge. Not the one we have now, The old draw bridge. One council member wannabe is running on the promise to pave all the roads on the Island. The first Spaghetti Dinner was held. $4 for adults and $2 for kids. 1984 had a lot of coon problems. The big talk was about rabies. I gotta get them out from under my house. Everyone is excited about the new jukebox at City Hall. I wonder what ever became of it? Anyone know? One of the coolest ideas put forth by the Club was asking all the parents to bring their kids to the meetings so we could hear what they had to say. That could be fun! This was the year we moved to Clear Lake Shores. It was also the year the Presidential Yacht Sequoia visited the area. We ran with it for a few miles up to the port of Houston Turning basin and back. What a magnificent ship. That communist peanut farmer from Georgia sold it. She was 104' of Trumpy. Her keel was laid in 1926 and she became the Presidents yacht under Herbert Hoover. Last I read she was on the hard in the DC area.

Wave bye bye to the flounder pond.

And for the love of God don't forget the EDC meeting Saturday. This needs to move on one way or the other. I don't know how much longer I will tolerate being called names by that whiny little bitch on FB. 😁
