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,

What Case's Landscaping Might Look Like

Laugh if you must, but I am not a horticulturist. I say, if it looks good in pictures, then it's good enough for my personal landscape.

At present, I live in an apartment and have no plans to move. But let's just say that I am getting a new house. What kind of landscaping would I have? Considering that I live near Dallas, which is that middle ground between humid and oppressive Houston and arid, dry West Texas cities, such would call for something tolerant to warmer climes. Dallas does have its humid days, but it's really right in the middle of the griddle. I've looked at some landscaping pictures and this writer still wants palm trees. A few California palms, some Mexican Fan palms, and a windmill palm, plus some Southwestern landscaping such as Texas yucca. No objections to a Joshua tree placed amidst the palms.

Greener pastures may one day abound (maybe), but right now, I must deal with the decent greenery seen at my apartment complex. Then again, if I had the gall to add some of my ideas to this place, well, then I could. Joshua trees wouldn't look too shabby at my complex's entrance.

    I'm trying to picture palm trees and yucca in your future yard. And I can't get a baseball diamond off my mind....
