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!

Spot On? Avoiding Food Stains While Eating Can Be A Challenge

Posted 08-01-2022 at 02:44 PM by case44

Road trips usually bring lots of different happenings. Sometimes, you have the uneventful (even though things are good). And in other cases, you get the unexpected.

We'll dive into the latter item for now, as I've finished another exciting road trip, this time up to Northwest Arkansas and the River Valley. On this excursion, my dinner tables had all been chock-full of fantastic food finds. And in Fayetteville, I managed to pull it off. No stains on any of my clothes. I was very careful.

Unfortunately, by the time I got to Fort Smith, that ceased to be the case for The Case. Once I began digging into some grub at Ed Walker's Drive-In for a burger, I had a challenge on my hands. Double-meat patties. They're just off the grill. The patties were definitely juicy, and Case still couldn't protect his guard. First two bites produced either a splatter or a direct spurt of the juice from the burger. I couldn't tell if the shirt stains came from a bounce off the puddle atop the paper pad in the basket or if it was a direct shoot from the patty to the shirt. Regardless, I'd have to wear some of my dinner back to the hotel, but at least, I didn't have to go anywhere that night. Changing shirts was going to happen, but retiring one for the trip due to stains was the order of the day (as it were).

Considering that I'd just gotten through two Italian places (tomato sauce, the usual culprit) without such incident, that alone is still remarkable. Since I've made it back home, I've Shouted those stains out. Life can resume now.

    No, I did not expect perfection, mind you. But I'd like to just do better at keeping stains off of me, and I thought my trip went very well.
