Welcome To Case's Column

Since this will be my first venture into the mysterious world of blogging, 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.

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.

Here you are. My very first blog page. Come on in and share in the experience. I'm interested in seeing where this is all going. And thanks in advance for dropping by!

Regards,

When It Comes To Winter, The Heat Is On

Posted 03-03-2015 at 08:34 PM by case44 (Welcome To Case's Column)

Let's just say it needs to end, with or without the calendar. Tomorrow's weather forecast calls for another round of sleet. That's five such incidents in two weeks. When is enough enough for Old Man Winter?

It's time for spring, don't you think?

As much as I've been thinking about baseball, so, too, goes the thought of seeing green. Green grass, green leaves, green..........

Well, you get the idea.

Instead,...

If There Were A Town Of Nowhere, Could It Be In Texas?

Sometimes in America, when you travel or even read travel books, you'll occasionally come across things that are bizarre or unusual. Different tourist attractions take on their own purposes and, in some cases, personalities with the likes of many travelers.

I've previously mentioned funny or silly town names in a previous post, but I won't repeat the details in this latest chickenscratch. I'd like to narrow things down to one item this time. For a number of years,...

Postcards From The Road: Final Trip Thoughts

Posted 02-20-2015 at 09:33 PM by case44 (Welcome To Case's Column)

Well, as John Denver would sing in his old song, it's good to be back home again. But I didn't want it to end too quickly. Anyhow, here are a few thoughts:

In College Station, work is being done on a large exhibit at the George Bush Presidential Library. So much so, that the entire section was blocked off from the public. I was hoping they'd actually add something there; instead, my second visit in six years yielded less things to see....

Case's Vacation Journal: Good Food To Be Had....

Posted 02-17-2015 at 04:54 PM by case44 (Welcome To Case's Column)

....with more still to come. It had been a long time coming for me to try a Central Texas legend in steak. So, last night, your writer decided it had become time to try out Heitmiller's.

While this will not be a formal food review post, I can tell you that this place gets an A-plus for its food. The steak was at its charbroiled best, full of flavor. Had a ribeye, and it was just the right amount of marbling. Also a wonderful baked potato which had bacon bits,...

Case's Vacation Journal: Celebrity Passings Through The Years

Posted 02-17-2015 at 08:06 AM by case44 (Welcome To Case's Column)

I'm currently at a business center inside a Waco, Texas hotel, and I'm doing wonderfully on yet another road trip. Later on, I'll have some sights to see, but first, these reflections.

Honestly, I don't why I keep up with the following, but it is on my mind as I listen to the news. Another celebrity from the entertainment world just passed away yesterday. We lost singer Lesley Gore on Monday at age 68 after she had a long battle with cancer. And not too long...
