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!




Spring Storms Previously Predicted For North Texas Never Materialized

Posted 04-28-2023 at 06:16 PM by case44 (Welcome To Case's Column)

Mother Nature's been playing favorites again.

Oh, it's okay. Let the big stuff stay down in Central Texas and just let the quieter stuff happen right near my home. It won't bother me in the least. Besides, who wants the grapefruit-sized hail that Waco got yesterday? Not in my backyard, thank you. I'll take the soft rain. Matter of fact, the severe thunderstorm watch has just been cancelled for the county in which I live, and that's just great news. Then...

The Surprise That Even Your Writer Was Not Expecting

Posted 04-27-2023 at 07:26 PM by case44 (Welcome To Case's Column)

We all like surprises. You do, too. Anyone who's anyone would think that a surprise is often a good thing, especially when same might not be expecting anything.

Clarity is kind. Usually.

The thing that happened at Parcel Pending at my humble apartment complex pretty much told the tale on this Thursday. I was getting e-mails from Parcel Pending telling me that I had a package from FedEx. Now, I wasn't really expecting anything from anyone, and...

Looks Like Someone Had --- Shall I Say, Overdone It....

What I witnessed shortly after sitting down to an afternoon dinner at a nearby Mexican restaurant does happen. I just would not have expected it to happen when it did.

Your writer was about to have a Mexican food feast at La Hacienda Ranch when two ladies about fifty feet away at a corner table were finishing up their consumption experience. I don't know what they ate, but I found out from the wait staff what they had to drink! As I saw something strange when one of the...

Case's Nostalgia Moment: Those Old Clorets Commercials

Posted 04-24-2023 at 08:02 PM by case44 (Welcome To Case's Column)

Some of you television fans out there certainly remember old commercials from the days of yore. And anytime you go on YouTube, my stars, there are myriads and cornucopias of TV fare that you just might run into anything.

Remember Mike Connors from the CBS-TV series, "Mannix"? Sure, many of you do. I liked him in those Clorets commercials. You can catch a few of those on YouTube today if you look closely. I mean, he knew how to sell a product, and...

Ah, The Changes That Go On In Life

Posted 04-22-2023 at 09:44 PM by case44 (Welcome To Case's Column)

Maybe it's just an exercise in overcaution. Ol' Case had just made plans to go watch some college baseball at Disch-Falk Field in good ol' Austin, Texas. That was once upon a time.

Leave it to Mother Nature to have her way once again. Your writer was at work when he missed the e-mail memo. It was from the University of Texas sports department ticket office. Weather tomorrow wasn't going to be so kind to the baseballers, so the honchos at UT decided to move...
