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

This day celebrates something that we often do not think about and just automatically take for granted.  National Zipper Day is celebrated each year on April 29.
It was first in 1851 that Elias Howe, the inventor of the sewing machine, received a patent for an “Automatic, Continuous Clothing Closure”.  Howe did not market it and missed the recognition he may have received for his invention. It's all i got.

From neighbor Crystal.
"We are having a Moving and Estate Sale on Saturday, May 3. There is a scheduling reason we are not having it on the day of the Island Wide Sale. The reason is not interesting.
 We will be moving soon and need to thin out our belongings. Also, Eileen Ponton will be selling the contents of a house belonging to a deceased family member. We will have household furniture, porch furniture, garage items, gardening supplies, a King size bed and frame, linens, kitchen items and much much more. This is not junk. Nothing will be 25 cents.
 This Saturday, May 3, 8 until 2. 402 Oak Road, corner of Oak and Ivy.
 Bring your friends, family, and paper money. Whining will not lower the prices but might get you delivery on the island.
 Jim Mago & Crystal Burney

Never too late to put in a rain barrel.
