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, there's a place below 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,

Barbecue Tour? I'll Think About It

With as much barbecue as we have in Texas, I'm thinking of possibly doing a tour. Problem is, there is good barbecue in a few different regions, and some of them are many miles apart from one another.

Since the big subject of barbecue in Texas usually takes place in Central Texas (aka The Barbecue Belt), I can just narrow it down to that area for one tour. I'd have to spend some evenings in Austin (since, hey, I've got to stay in a hotel to cover multiple days ) to accomplish this. Yes, I've been on previous trips to Austin and, in staying as much as five days at a time, I'd have done at least three or four places during same. Now, if I could do a week and a half, I'd have to do North Texas, East Texas, Central Texas, and Southeast Texas since barbecue holds prominence in those areas. West Texas would take more time, but, sadly, that region does not have as many barbecue places, and many of them are just average. Lubbock, for their credit, has the most barbecue to offer in the West Texas area and sports one of the better ones in the state with Evie Mae's. Because of the distance and lack of real good joints, I could not include West Texas in the rotation in a potential statewide tour (with a notable exception being, perhaps, Joe Allen's in Abilene).

That type of trip will have to wait, however, as I have other places to visit. But when that time is right, in due course, I have to do a barbecue celebration. Bone appetit!!

Hey, if you can do it, then great. Anything enjoyable is worth doing.
