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

Here we are in April...

Fun Run
It is a Fun Run around the island, detour at Queen.
Registration at 9:00 am,the run will start at 10:00. The wonderful and talented 5th grade cooking team will be serving. We will have face painting by "The Artist" Eric,a Moon walk, and medals for all youth finishers. And 12 top prizes this year to the fastest kids on the island. We have extended the early registration to $10.00/individual and $30.00/family which INCLUDES A T-SHIRT

Don’t forget, City Council meeting tonight. Yes you do have the time. They’ve only been running 20 minutes give or take for the past several meetings. I don’t know, go ask council! Thursday nite is the Civic Club meeting. Pot luck dinner starts at 7 and the meeting begins at 7:30. Please go. Support you Civic Club!

Did anyone get a peek at this little guy Saturday? He was close to 5’ and trying to get under the bridge last Saturday. Karen Russel got a this good pic. I didn’t know they had a reverse!

It’s crawfish season! We coerced Bryan H in to working his magic on our trial run over the weekend. My taste buds are still throwin’ a party. As soon as the prices come down We’ll see if we can get him to cook up a hundred or so pounds. Watch this spot for the date.

Have you signed up for the Island Wide Garage Sale yet? It’s not too late, you have plenty of time and you can get a sign up form in the Islander. It’s gonna be a blast. Food and drink available at both ends of the Island and tons of deals in between. May 14 is the day. It’s the same day as election day.

Is anyone interested in selling flowers at the Farmers Market? There is a deal waiting to be made. It seems there is a pretty cool Flower cart up there looking for something to do. Let me know if you’re interested in starting a side business and I’ll hook you up with the right folks.Sounds like easy money....

Speaking of the Farmers Market, do you believe it’s been two years? How time flies. And that is two years despite those on and off City Council who want to see the Market go away. I know it’s hard to believe but yes some of your friends and neighbors would rather see another empty lot instead of folks out trying to do a little something extra that may even bring new people around to spend some money at a few of our local business’. Nuts ain’t it. That’s why they’re called CAVE people. Citizens Against Virtually Everything. I wish I would have made that up. At least they gave us matching mud lots at the entrance to our fair city.

Oldie but goodie….
Two nuns, Sister Catherine and Sister Helen, are traveling through Europe in their car.
They get to Transylvania just after sunset and are stopped at a traffic light.
Suddenly, out of nowhere, a tiny little vampire jumps onto the hood of the car and hisses at them through the windshield.
'Oh goodness!' shouts Sister Catherine. 'What shall we do?'
'Turn the windshield wipers on. That will get rid of the abomination, ' says Sister Helen.
Sister Catherine switches them on, knocking the vampire about, but he clings on and continues hissing at the nuns.
'What shall I do now?' she shouts.
'Switch on the windshield washer. I filled it up with Holy Water at the Vatican ,' says Sister Helen.
Sister Catherine turns on the windshield washer.. The vampire screams as the water burns his skin, but he clings on and continues hissing at the nuns.
'Now what?' shouts Sister Catherine.
'Show him your cross,' says Sister Helen.
'Now you're talking,' says Sister Catherine.
She opens the window and shouts, 'Get the f*** off the car!
