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,

I Still Miss The Movie Popcorn And The Movie Soda Pop

Posted 05-28-2014 at 07:23 PM by case44 (Welcome To Case's Column)

So many years have passed since I've stopped by a movie theater. My money typically goes into more important things..............like food! Well, restaurant food, anyway. But I often reminisce about the way things used to be while going to the theater for a good movie. In recent years, I haven't frequented theaters nearly as much as I used to.

The things I remember best are the buttery popcorn and the sweet fountain drinks through a straw. Oh, sure, you can go...

A Few Frisco School Thoughts

Posted 05-26-2014 at 03:55 PM by case44 (Welcome To Case's Column)

Another school year is just about behind us, but before you know it, another new one is around the corner. In Frisco, TX, change is the one constant when you have a growing community that builds houses and schools at a pace where it's hard to keep up.

Actually, I've kept up fine. But it seems like kids change schools more often than I change my socks. Five new schools are on the way for the district for this coming fall, and three more come to port the following...

Let's Remember Our Troops On This Memorial Day

We need to pause and remember those who've served our country. Many have died while taking time to fight against evil forces in order to protect our freedoms to make our great America a strong nation. And, so, we are honoring them because they deserve our thoughts and prayers.

All across America on Monday, many ceremonies and remembrances will be taking place. Please continue to keep these soldiers' families in your thoughts on the holiday that began one hundred years...

A Little Luck Can Take One A Long Way

Posted 05-25-2014 at 03:53 PM by case44 (Welcome To Case's Column)

Imagine being a fan of your favorite baseball team, and you just had your favorite player hit a home run to your part of the stadium. That's right; to your seating area.

Now, imagine being someone who is related to a player on a certain baseball team.........and you are the person catching the baseball after it gets hit. Moreover, imagine being the father of that minor-league player.

It happened. One of the Houston Astros' prospects had...

First Time On The CTP: Nice Ride!

It's a work in progress. And, as I write this, this particular road is about 97% complete, what with some touch-ups, signage, and final connecting road work left to be done.

I'm talking about Fort Worth's new Chisholm Trail Parkway, the downtown-to-Cleburne toll road with a parkway feel to it. Your writer decided it was time to go out and take a test drive on it. The road has some good city and country scenes along its route. It is intended to begin at Interstate 30...
