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,

case44

Another Blast From The Past, Still Open....Elsewhere

Posted 03-05-2017 at 06:40 PM by case44 (Welcome To Case's Column)

If I were to make a list of places that I want to see make a comeback after having left the picture, I just thought of one that should. Even more bizarre than that, this restaurant still stands with just one location, no longer part of any chain.

Well, it always helps if I find something online.

The place I'm referring to is York Steak House, which used to have a location in Arlington, Texas, many years ago. Man, I used to enjoy that place....

A Few Brownie Bites Were The Big Hit At Work

Posted 03-03-2017 at 06:26 PM by case44 (Welcome To Case's Column)

Hope you all out there had a good Texas Independence Day. While that was going on, I was just going through my usual routine at work.

But the regular routine needed a bit of a slight interruption. A diversion, if you please. It came time for this writer to go get a couple of containers of brownie bites to take to work on Purple Shirt Thursday. Okay, brownies are not purple, but that's not the point. I just needed to do something nice for the folks...

Scattershooting / Remember Those Old TV Announcers?

Posted 02-27-2017 at 08:54 PM by case44 (Welcome To Case's Column)

Taking you around and around with more Scattershooting on your friendly neighborhood blog, I humbly welcome you back to the outpost known as Case's Column. Gather around the computer campfire, everybody. I'm fresh out of marshmallows, but maybe we can do burgers.

********

Every now and then, Ol' Case likes to take people on a trip down Memory Lane. Do you remember those old voiceover specialists on television back when we were growing up? I mean,...

Perhaps A Certain Number Won't Be Completely Tainted After All

Posted 02-27-2017 at 09:34 AM by case44 (Welcome To Case's Column)
Updated 02-27-2017 at 02:44 PM by case44

My favorite number for many years has been and still is 4. Even multiplied by 11, which is 44, the number holds a special place in my life for reasons I cannot explain.

When I first registered on this great website, where it's still great to be alive, by the way, the number 44 was the inspiration for my username, and also, because I felt compelled to answer a question and/or participate in a thread which talked about Interstate 44. So I wanted to chime in...

Mardi Gras: Better Late Than Never

Posted 02-26-2017 at 07:51 PM by case44 (Welcome To Case's Column)

Chances are really good that this writer will not attend Mardi Gras festivities in New Orleans and Galveston. After all, I've got to show up for work, you know.

The Cajun tradition just keeps on going. Usually, this big celebration would take place in early February, but this time around, it's going to be late in the month. This coming Tuesday happens to be the day. Funny how I've actually got the beads from a previous Mardi Gras experience at one of the local...
