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!

Turning Lemons Into Lemonade At The Case Abode

Posted 12-29-2022 at 06:40 PM by case44

Life sure gets crazy now and then, dud-nit, sports fans? Once upon a time, my apartment complex manager and I talked about getting new things placed in my bathroom. Last year, my floor was replaced. Earlier this year, it was the bathroom sink.

Most recently, we talked about getting a new shower put in, but I was then placed on a priority list. Then something happened a few days before Christmas which wound up changing the whole ballgame for Case.

North Texas was treated (as it were) to Mother Nature leaving her freezer open, and we ended up with the coldest temperatures since Cupid went nuts in 2021. In all the years I'd lived in my apartment, I had never had a pipe burst. Ever. Guess what happened during the ice-cold temperatures?

The pipe behind the tub faucet actually broke the moment I turned on the shower function.


Mother Nature just took too dadgummed long to search for a Klondike bar. So, the powers that be had determined that, instead of just simple repairs, I'd get that new shower that they promised me put in place. The maintenance peeps came in while I was at work and kissed the old shower goodbye, all the while bringing in the new feature. Real sleek. New, built-in compartments to put soap and shampoo. New shower head and gleaming faucets. For all intents and purposes, there's a new place for me to get that glorious shower time fix. We've turned lemons into lemonade after all. Now, there's just one thing it still needs, and I'm amazed this wasn't included.

There's no towel rack!

Oh, well. Bed, Bath & Beyond, here I come. Time for your writer to get creative.
