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

National Devils Food Cake Day.

Which brings me to Ice Cream.
I am at a crossroads. For time immemorial Blue Bell Pecan Pralines and Cream has been my undisputed, hands down no questions asked not even a close second candidate for Best Ice Cream on the planet. I know, I know there are you out there that may not think Blue Bell is indeed the best ice cream but you would be wrong. I am not trying to start an argument I am simply trying to educate. No other ice cream could inflict national sorrow, nay worldwide panic like the great Blue Bell shortage of 2015. The horror. Save the first 4 years of my tender young life I have never gone so long without ice cream. Lest you think me an ice cream snob please know that I have had hundreds of variations in over 30 countries on 4 continents. My creds are solid. Our son is still searching for his cold creamy bliss so when we pick up the mandatory PP&C we will pick up something new. Enter my conundrum. Tin Roof seems like such a simple thing. I fully expected this to be a one and done. Not so fast. I went so far as to do a side by side, bowl by bowl eat off last night. Woe is me. I may be seeking an intervention soon.

Island Wide Garage Sale technically starts at sunup tomorrow. The professional pre pickers will be cruising the Island this evening. Pay attention to traffic!

Next weekend is jam packed with Crawfish boil off

, Jammin' on Jarboe, starring
 Bag of Donuts

Not that one, this one!

and our very own Drag Race.

how do you like me now?
Happy Friday Islanders.
