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,

case44

I Know That Buc-ee's Sometimes Gets Too Crowded, But....

....today it really got overcrowded. Lots of Interstate 35 traffic today in Temple, Texas, on my way back from Austin following a Texas Longhorns 4-3 baseball win over Texas Tech.

All I wanted to get was some gasoline at Buc-ee's, but even with about 90 pumps, every car had occupied one. That's right, every single pump had a car by it. Oh, and there were a few pumps where at least two cars were waiting for someone to finish using it. Look, I know that Buc-ee's is hellaciously popular, but even this writer had to move on up the freeway to another (lesser-known) station.

Man, that trip back from Austin took four hours. You know what? Must have been those Spring Break returnees....

Tyler tomorrow. Peace.

    This is not a tragedy by any means. It's actually a testament to how successful Buc-ee's is. Since I'm going to East Texas this week, I can always stop at their Terrell location. Everything will be fine.
