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

Just when you were about to relegate Halloween '13 to the history books we have this. It's kinda nice to get more than one outing in a costume.

From neighbors Alyson and Trish....
Rain or shine!
Come on over to the Club House for a kids Halloween Party!
We will have games, treats and a costume contest.
It is a short notice I know but the weather is very unpredictable.
Besides, I know Levi would be disappointed if he didn't get to go trick or treating or wear his new costume.
We hope to see all you ghost and goblins there!

And Then there's this..
Aspens is having the final say in Halloween costume contests this year. The place to be is Aspens this Saturday night (the 2nd) First Place Best Costume is $100 bar tab. Second Place is a $50 bar tab and Third gets a $25 tab.

it's pouring down here......

I know the political leanings of the commentariat here well enough to realize that if someone were to say "we have a scruffy guy on the island that is sucking the welfare teet" everyone would be up in arms about how he needs to get a job. Now we have our happy blog readers up in arms because there is someone on the island that seems to be in need and is trying to work. But he doesn't look or act like you so he must be up to something nefarious? As usual, you sadden me. How long does one need to live here before the cynicism sets in and even the ducks are looked at with a skewed eye? This person may have problems and be stealing, or it may be the dastardly ducks, but do we really need to hide behind the curtains, peeking out occasionally to affirm that the rest of the island is coming after us? Perhaps a benefit is needed. For him or for you?

If you feel so strongly about helping this character, how about you post your name and address instead of Anon.

Then the next time we see this deadbeat, we can send him your way. This guy i am talking about looks healthy enough to get a real job like the rest of us. He could go stand down on Texas ave with the rest of the folks stand looking for work. I work too hard to let some one take my stuff.
If you want to give him the benefit of the doubt, post your address, otherwise hush!

If this guy is down and out and needs food maybe he could eat the muscovie ducks. I'll furnish the charcoal
