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!

Regards,

On The Road Again: Have To Get To Fiesta

Posted 04-23-2017 at 07:57 PM by case44 (Welcome To Case's Column)

Let's face it, sports fans; it's been too long. Way too long. Well, I suppose it's time to do something about it.

And, so, Ol' Case will hit the road tomorrow. There's a Fiesta celebration with my name on it.

San Antonio will be where I call home for the next three days and a few familiar eating places will await my arrival. Finishing touches on packing are taking place. The legendary Riverwalk district will be rife with much activity that...

That's Just It: Lubbock Needs More Dreamers

Posted 04-16-2017 at 08:15 PM by case44 (Welcome To Case's Column)
Updated 04-16-2017 at 08:38 PM by case44

The landscape might look a little different the next time I go there in two months, as opposed to the last time I was there (some four years ago), but Lubbock still needs more, much more. I've said this for years, and I'll say it again. Vision. Dreams. Ideas. Those are three things that Lubbock needs on its bucket list.

To preface, I'm not saying that they haven't accomplished anything. Far from it. Lubbock has done more in the last ten years than it's...

Country Music's Hall Of Fame Is Honoring Three More

Posted 04-12-2017 at 08:17 PM by case44 (Welcome To Case's Column)

For fans of modern country music and those leaning toward a traditional flair, this year's Country Music Hall of Fame class will satisfy enough folks. All have made an imprint on country music that extends past generations.

Here are the names: Jerry Reed. Alan Jackson. Don Schlitz.

Reed was who I've called country music's "wild man", but what people don't realize is that he'd also written songs like "A Thing Called Love", which...

Plane And Simple? Wichita Falls Has Improved Its Future

Posted 04-07-2017 at 07:22 PM by case44 (Welcome To Case's Column)
Updated 04-09-2017 at 08:38 AM by case44

This particular post is actually about two years overdue. I realize it's been too long since I've stopped in at Wichita Falls (I think it's been three or four years, at least). Well, sometime along the way, they've made a big improvement in their city, and this writer didn't even learn of this until stumbling upon a YouTube search.

All I had to do was type in Wichita Falls, and I saw several things with it, including the words Regional Airport. I thought, ...

We've Got Different Opinions On Things - And That's Okay

Posted 04-07-2017 at 06:53 PM by case44 (Welcome To Case's Column)
Updated 04-08-2017 at 08:05 PM by case44

The USA is a diverse society, and aren't you glad? After all, if everybody were the same, then it would be a boring place to live. So many things to do, so many jobs, so many ideas, so many thoughts to share. We are all different.

I'm thankful that we still have freedom of expression and speech and that we still have many places to express our views. We have a wonderful blog page on this very website, and many folks have come in to write about what's on...
