Happy Veteran's Day to all past, present and future vets. Thank you for your service that allows us to have the freedoms we do. Even the freedom to post whiny little missives on this blog. The freedom to worry about who is leaving snarky posts under assumed names. The freedom to sign off as anon. I'm afraid our biggest problem is focus. We have 6 months to endure. Then we get to exercise our most important freedom to vote for a leadership team that will do it's best to represent its citizenry. Realizing most actions will at least please half the folks on our little island. One can only hope they will at least talk to us. 6 months.
See all the new flags on the island? They are from a local Boy Scout troop. It's a fund raiser they are trying. For about $35 a year they will come out and put up a flag where ever you want and then come back and take it down. They do it for all the big federal holidays. If you are interested drop me a line and I'll pass along the info.

"I wondered why the baseball was getting bigger. Then it hit me."
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
