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

Is it kosher to say Happy Yom Kippur?

Not that I’m jumping the gun or anything but one of these days fall will be here for real. Craig has been dropping some dead trees around the island and these are prime firewood. If you can remember far back enough to sitting around a fire pit all snuggly and warm around a fire then you will remember to check on your firewood stash. If you are in need you may want to give Craig a call. Feel free to contact him through comments. It’s good recycling and I hear he has access to some Pecan. And to everyone who has an un split pile now is the time. Craig is also considering renting a splitter for a weekend. Might be time for a team effort. Just sayin’. Don’t give me that crap about I’ll split it myself either. There is nothing that will drive all those birthdays home harder than hitting a knot in a short piece of Oak with a big ass hammer.

Thanks to Neetje I contacted the Punkin’ House lady. She seems like a sweetie and her name is Shirley. Her daughter talked her in to resuming the family tradition of decorating the trees and I’m going to stop by today and get a picture of it for the blog. Thanks Shirley and Thanks Shirley’s daughter.

Have a great weekend Y’all

Isn't Neeltje just a sweetheart. I am so glad I have gotten to know her volunteering for The Islander.

Perhaps the Civic Club could consider awarding prizes for Halloween decorations. I am keeping an eye out to see who might follow Chip Kuhn's idea of making a Candy Shoot.

Allan, Your logic is way off. You are thinking the three blind mice on Council are normal. They do not think administratively and have proven themselves to be dysfunctional.
If Tami rambles on again, repeating herself - making no sense what's so ever, I will become inappropriate and gladly be escorted out of the room with pride. Especially if it is illegal like her not wanting ordinances applied across the board, only to the ones she wants -like the landscaping co. she was after. Does she have any concept of discrimination? The Office of Civil Rights will receive a letter from me the next time she attempts discrimination since it will be her 3rd strike. For the love of God, why can't our attorney simply state what she proposes is illegal. Does anyone know if he tells her privately with a witness or sends her a letter? Something tells me Tami will provide the need for me to be inappropriate and I will get a round of applauds from all but 6 - 10 people.
If she asks Karen one more time, what page / line item they are discussing, lets scream in unison, "Incompetent". I have lost count of how many times mtgs. have been interrupted so Karen could line Tami up. I am not questioning why she is not up-to-date with the technology the other council members are using, but if she chooses to stay antiquated at least find the right page. Are you in? She asks what page and we yell "INCOMPETENT!"
As part of the Pink Party, I am confident their auditing will result in NOTHING since I believe in Paul. You were not clear as to who is conducting the audit. Please do not tell me another firm was hired. Although that would be better than Arlene Laughter, who was questioning the recurring payment to Ameriwaste, our trash pick-up. Give me a break.
I could not believe the comment section here was not jammed after your post yesterday. Have other members of the Pink Party become complacent? Do we have so much trust in Paul that we know he will be cleared? Numbers at CC sure are dropping off. I hope every member of the community that EXPECTS the results of the investigation Oct 18th will let each council member know either by personal contact, letters or emails. Oh, wait, Tami doesn't pick up her mail, she doesn't return phone calls and probably doesn't know how to retrieve emails. Put something in her mailbox - hell, I don't know.
This brings me back to how I started. I, like you, are treating this logically. Can't reason with the abnormal. God help CLS. How many days until the election?
