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!

Regards,

And, Perhaps, Keen's Road Will Not Go On Forever

Posted 03-29-2022 at 06:20 PM by case44 (Welcome To Case's Column)

Back in September, your favorite blogger alluded to Elton John and his farewell tour with a thing he called the "Yellow Brick Road". In that post, I also brought up another artist with a road of his own.

And, as it would turn out soon after, this artist is also in his farewell phase, at least, as far as touring goes.

The latter is Robert Earl Keen, a country/Americana artist who has seen that road go on for forty-one straight years. He'll...

Fifty Years Ago: Your Writer's Family Gathered To Watch "The Odd Couple"

Posted 03-27-2022 at 04:18 PM by case44 (Welcome To Case's Column)

Hard to believe that fifty years ago, I can still remember Friday nights with my mother, father, and then-baby brother. As a family, we used to watch quite a bit of television. Perhaps, too much!

But whenever Friday night rolls around, I still reflect on a time fifty years ago when Dad was in the living room with me and we'd watch "O'Hara, United States Treasury" on CBS-TV. When it was over at 8:30, we'd skip the "Friday Night Movie" and turn...

Laredo To Lubbock: What Will The New I-27 Look Like?

Posted 03-24-2022 at 06:25 PM by case44 (Welcome To Case's Column)

Last week saw many roadies rejoicing. Not just that, but many West Texans had plenty of reason to celebrate. The excruciating wait is finally over!

Interstate 27 had been in existence since 1992, but has, so far, been limited to just the connection between Amarillo and Lubbock, the only link to the rest of the Eisenhower system being I-40. Many years have been spent on studies, speculation, ideas, and rumors about I-27 actually becoming a big corridor. Sure, we've...

New Supreme Court Nominee Cannot Define A Woman

Posted 03-23-2022 at 05:37 PM by case44 (Welcome To Case's Column)

Just when Wacky Washington couldn't get any worse....

It's amazing, the things I hear on the talk shows while I'm eating lunch in my car. Have you seen the latest on these Supreme Court questioning hearings? I'm only finding out on the talk shows because they just have a better perspective than the Fake News networks which really won't tell you anything. So, here's the deal on swampy Capitol Hill in what is now Day 504 of the left's hijacking of America away from...

The Harsh Reminder Of Spring: Severe Weather

Posted 03-22-2022 at 05:54 PM by case44 (Welcome To Case's Column)

While there are many things your writer likes about spring when we finally reach that time of the year, there also comes a little bit of baggage. I'll present it to you in a study of contrasts.

Sunday, I was in the Austin area. There was a college baseball game which I had the privilege of attending, and there were plenty of sights to see. And through it all, the weather was picture-perfect for the day trip. At the time, you couldn't tell what kinds of things were...
