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

12 shopping days left

This from neighbor Becky:
The Clear Creek High School Symphonic Chorale is having their annual Christmas Party at our house this year.  They will do some caroling around the neighborhood.  Please pass the word for folks to listen for them on Friday night, Dec. 14th

Spread the word, the City is going to bring in a snow making machine this Friday at 2 o’clock, up at the Club House. How much fun is that going to be!?
Ever seen a sign that says "Bears here" ? Sounds pretty weird but I know where there is one.
At Tom and Diane's place, 226 Narcissus, there is a black bin with said sign. Diane is collecting them for the patients at Harbor View Nursing Home for Christmas. This from Diane "I already have a 29 but I would love to collect as many as possible. I am asking for new or very gently loved stuffed animals. They do not have to be bears." Now that’s a good cause!

The Christmas Season: Just a reminder for friends and family

At this time of the year, when the roadblocks come up with great regularity I would like to share a personal experience with my closest friends about drinking and driving.  As you well know, some of us have been known to have had brushes with the authorities on our way home from an occasional social session over the years.
A couple of nights ago, I was out for an evening with friends and had a couple of cocktails and some rather nice red wine.   Knowing full well I may have been slightly over the limit, I did something I've never done before; I took a cab home. Sure enough, I passed a police road block but, since it was a cab, they waved it past.
I arrived home safely without incident, which was a real surprise as I have never driven a cab before and am not sure where I got it or what to do with it now that it's in my garage.
