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,

The Tooth, Er, Truth About Teeth: The Crowning Touch

Posted 06-19-2017 at 10:45 AM by case44 (Welcome To Case's Column)

It just so happens that I'm seeing doctors and dentists all in the same day. Hey, what else can a blogger do on his days off from work?

This afternoon, I'm finally getting that crown put in by my dentist. It's been a long time coming, but a lot of things had to get accomplished since the extraction of that abscessed tooth nine months ago. When completed, I will no longer look like a trailer park hick trying to hide a weakness. A couple of different...

You Know You're Getting Older When....

Posted 06-19-2017 at 10:31 AM by case44 (Welcome To Case's Column)

....you deal with blood pressure medicine for the first time. Yes, this writer is not getting any younger, and my blood pressure is no longer regularly at 120 over 80. The numbers I've had in recent visits read like a ride at Six Flags, up and down, all around....

Nonetheless, reality is setting in. With my latest check at my personal physician's office this morning, the latest reading is 152 over 93. So, it became time. Later today, they'll...

Scattershooting / Sara Evans Will Be Back

Posted 06-18-2017 at 06:55 PM by case44 (Welcome To Case's Column)

While you're out there cooling off somewhere, I'm in an air-conditioned setting and about to do more Scattershooting for the masses. Thought we'd gather around the computer campfire and shoot the breeze while praying for another one. So, pass the lemonade and we'll make sure that the ice doesn't melt too quickly for that next sip to be oh, so effective.

Fans of country music really have nothing to fear. There's plenty of good oldies that...

KAAM Nostalgia Gone From The Radio - But Not From Us

Posted 06-16-2017 at 03:59 PM by case44 (Welcome To Case's Column)

This development took me by surprise. I hadn't even heard about it or read about it anywhere until I turned on my radio this morning.............to find some other programs.

KAAM-AM (770) in Dallas had been a source for big band and adult standards for years and had been --- and still is --- the number one online station with that format. Well, as I learned on the internet today, the radio station changed formats back on June 5, but we listeners can still tune in...

When Initials Can Mean Something Else

Posted 06-13-2017 at 06:51 PM by case44 (Welcome To Case's Column)

In the parlance of the times we live in, we do a lot of communicating by abbreviating or shortening even further down to bare initials. And I think, by now, you know how the drill goes unless you've lived underground in a dark cave for x number of years.

You can tell by the letters. LOL. FYI. AOK. OMG. BYOB. FOB. DOA. FWIW. WYSIWYG.

Stuff like that, you know.

But I'm thinking of one in which the words cannot be repeated...
