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, I'll set aside a place here 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!




Houston, I'm Comin' To See You....Well, Just For Now

Posted Today at 03:15 AM by case44 (Welcome To Case's Column)

Just had to borrow Glen Campbell's song for only a moment.

Ol' Case takes to the road for food, fun, and...........fun. And 45. That's Interstate 45. This writer is Houston-bound and the Bayou City will never be the same once I've treaded on their freeways. Nonetheless, it's time for a week of relaxation. Kemah might get a visit, as will Galveston. And I can't wait to get back to Taste of Texas for another one of their legendary steaks. ...

Scattershooting / IHOP Change To IHOB A Stupid Idea

Updated Yesterday at 07:15 PM by case44

Time for me to do some more Scattershooting for all to read. The heat's back on in Texas, so dress appropriately. Then again, Mother Nature wants to play with everyone's emotions, so we'll have to dress appropriately for that, as well. While y'all are wondering what to put on for the summer solstice (at this writing, just four days away), let me get you going with a little here and a little there....


Okay, where's the logic here? You've...

Lakeside Tower Is About To Get More Companions

Posted 06-10-2018 at 09:40 AM by case44 (Welcome To Case's Column)

Funny how things can evolve in a market that stands still one minute and makes a furious move the next. Officials in Flower Mound, Texas, originally had plans to build some small hotels next to the brand-new Lakeside Tower.

The 16-story condo tower is almost complete now. But the plans that Flower Mound had a few years ago have since been scrapped. There's been a revision. Actually, there've already been a few of them. Now, a new mixed-use project is going...

What The Hail's Going On Here? Hail, Not Thunderstorms

Posted 06-06-2018 at 07:51 PM by case44 (Welcome To Case's Column)

It was probably too unreal to be believed, except that this situation was very real. Predictions of possible thunderstorms warned of possible hail for last night, and not everybody was going to get any.

Consider me lucky. Last night around 1:40, I had awakened to a little thunder and lightning, but there was no rain where I was. I was looking at National Weather Service radars, and places around me got rained on, but it was what happened east and south of me...

Beaver Fever Is Coming To Ennis --- Czech It Out

Posted 06-04-2018 at 07:59 PM by case44 (Welcome To Case's Column)

Holy cow, you say? Not another beaver sighting in Texas. Oh, yes. Interstate 45 is about to have a third Buc-ee's location in its 284-mile length. Houston travelers will be subject to the same number of beaver billboards that Dallasites have seen in the flip trip, but they already know what it's like when everybody in the eastern one-third of Texas has seen so many Buc-ee's billboards.

First, it was Madisonville. Then, it was Texas City. And now? ...
