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

Finished scanning in a few old Islanders. I'm taking these back to Helle and get some more.
What I got out of 1985. 
Who remembers Mallorcas restaurant at Watergate. I had forgotten all about it. Our Police Chief Simms retired. Said he's been here since Moby Dick was a minnow. The new Kemah Bridge officially opened and watercolor paintings of the old draw bridge were for sale. Have you ever worked for our annual Thanksgiving Dinner? This one's for you. The serving hours in '85 were from 11AM to 7PM. And the cost was $5 per plate. City Father, First Mayor, Civic Club President and so much more, R.A. "Bob Piehl passes away while on a trip to Alaska. 
Took my Jeep in for inspection. In the lot was a new 4 wheel drive, supercharged Jaguar. It comes with a built in portal for a tow hook.
How sad is that?
Imagine it's April 2008, you dial in Letterman and he's on a rant at the newly elected President Obama. Smiling , he turns to the camera and says "In fact, the only thing your mouth is good for is being Bill Clintons cock holster." What's your reaction? and how many seconds go by before Letterman is off the air?
President Trump does get a "No" vote today. I'm pretty sure he doesn't need to threaten anyone. Out loud. Moving on Sir, moving on.

See you tomorrow at the EDC Open house. I'll be taking notes.
Happy Friday Clear Lake Shores. Have a great weekend!
