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 Mint Julep Day

OK, but which do you prefer a Mint Julep or a Mojito? Mojito lovers have to wait until July 11th for their day. Remember when Tommy and Marcy had Mojito parties? Mmmmmm.

I hope everyone had a Good Memorial Day. I know it means a lot of different things to a lot of different folks. If you served it's really different. Thank you all for your service.

Jammin' was a huge hit to say the least. I hope you got to see 'em. What a show. Biggest. Crowd. Ever.





Did a little cookin' for some friends this weekend. a couple of briskets, 10 lbs of yardbird, 4 racks of ribs and 10 lbs os sausage. Yum!
Speaking of food, and the fact that it is summertime and I'm a sucker for hotdogs I am going to post the Hawaiian recipe. If I can make the transition. Got it. Tell me what you think.


Then there was the 12th annual Drag Race. FYI you raised well over a thousand dollars for the Civic Club Scholarship Fund. Papa Duck's band was rained out in case you didn't know. Well done "Men"

The Islander 2002 edition brought us news of the Rack n Stack across from Lazy Bend. I was at that Council meeting. What a show. There is a lot of talk about the City getting it's own zip code. That's how the utility companies allot the taxes they collect from us back to the  cities and since we share(d) a zip with Kemah it was a financial mess. Island mover and shaker Lorretto Garst passed and a Live Oak was planted at Deep Hole Park. Does anyone know if it survived Ike? The City had to cough up $10k to get the sunken shrimp boat up and out from our turning basin. No one had a clue as to the whereabouts of the owner. Imagine that. Some folks are wanting a pedestrian bridge across the bayou. Again. See a pattern here? Another long time Island mover and Shaker Juanita Flurry was awarded the Galveston County Chamber of Commerce Senior Citizen of the Year. If you ever get around to reading some of these old Islanders you'll wonder what took 'em so long. Riddles appeared in the Islander. They were aimed at the readers and came with a prize. No one ever cashed in on one. The kitchen at the CLubHouse got a makeover and some new equipment. Believe me, that thing called a stove in there needed to be somewhere else. Scary! And the City posted a survey for residents to complete to point out what is most important, Another good read and my guess is still pertinent today.
So if you are reading this please keep this in mind, We will have a few holes to plug in the coming weeks. I'm talking about the odd Islander issue that I haven't come across. They are few and far between but they are there. If you have some oldies squirreled away some where, don't throw throw 'em out just yet. Thanks.

For Sale. 77 Mako 21.5, 2006 Yamaha 225 4 stroke, Tandem axle trailer. First 8k drives it home. Clear Titles on hand.
