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 Chocolate Pudding Day is here!

I have no idea how many times I have headed south on CLR from Forest. I do know I have eyed the Oak on the corner as a contender for our biggest tree but after a lookover I could see it was short. Friday, for whatever reason, I finally noticed the BIG tree behind it. A carefully placed email provided me with the info I was looking for. A drumroll please. Ladies and Gentlemen, we have a new winner. Mike and Pamela Zuteck's nearly hidden Oak was measured at 11' 3" which soundly beats Reva's 9'8". All Hail the Zuteck Oak.

Anyone hear how the benefit went yesterday? I liked the brisket but that's about it. Oh well, a for a worthy cause. I hope you had a chance to get to Aspens.
