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 Filet Mignon Day

This is a happy, sad, happy day. Got back late last night from a regional Tae kwan do tournament. Our first in a while. Wyatt's first as a Black Belt. Happy that he won two First Place medals in his two favorite events, Sparring and Forms.
Sad that the event was so poorly organized that we had to wait 6 hours between events. 10 hours in the Allen Civic Center is too long. Happy that the trip home went well and fast. Sad that it was so late when we got home. Happy that we discovered Liberty Burgers in Allen Texas. No, ecstatic! Far and away the best burger I have ever had. Ever. And I've had a lot across a few continents. Even my picky teenager gave his two thumbs up. Sad that there are none south of Dallas. The next time you get close to the Big D or Cow Town, make this a must stop. I kid you not. And don't forget to order a mudslide. Liberty Burgers. Write it down.

Here's a shout out to neighbor Alex Scanlon. Dude, Thanks. You made raising my carport look easy.
