Welcome To Case's Column

Let me say a big welcome to all of you for joining me here. I'm going to call these blog meetings Case's Column. I wanted to use "Corner", but that was already taken. Since 2008, it's been a real privilege to come on here and share some of my life with you, and it's a big world where we live.

In these blogs, I'll just speak whatever is on my mind, but we will be playing within the rules here. I may pick a particular topic, point out an event, or shoot the breeze. I'm a little bit of an essayist at times, so I'll just speak what's on my mind, and I might tell a story or two. Or, I might spew out an opinion or three. There will be some serious moments, some tender, some poignant, but there will also be those moments that you'll just bust out laughing. But, hopefully, everything will be in good fun here. And, of course, there's a place below for your comments and thoughts as we go along here. So feel free to join me for the ride -- I sure as heck hope I'm doing this right and not making any mistakes.

Thanks for taking your time in reading Case's Column. Hopefully, you'll enjoy being entertained by it as much as I've enjoyed putting these writings together. And thanks for the time you spend in City-Data.com, where it's great to be alive!

Maybe it's prophetic. Maybe it's coincidental.

This morning, we had a blood moon in our skies in the pre-dawn hours before the most important midterm elections to take place in our lifetimes. Your writer got a glimpse of it as he headed for work early today. Will this phenomenon and its timing be an omen for the events and results of an election?

Gary Franchi expounds on this subject in the video link below:

Lubbock's Joyland Actually Gets A New Lease On Life

Posted 11-08-2022 at 07:15 PM by case44 (Welcome To Case's Column)

For some time, it didn't look like Joyland Amusement Park in Lubbock would have any future at all. Staffing issues and rampant vandalism were cause for concern to the owners of the park, prompting rumors that the place will be closing after the 2022 season.

I just learned that Joyland will have new owners after all. And on top of that, it will be two couples. Their Facebook page revealed that the new couples will keep the park going through 2023 and beyond. I only...
