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!

Takeaways From Another Stop At Buc-ee's

Posted 10-08-2023 at 07:10 PM by case44

This was just spur-of-the-moment on one of my days off from work. Did some driving around on a whim after meeting with a group from church for lunch. And that's another blog post right there, but let's first deal with what's really on my mind.

Along the way, I stopped at Buc-ee's in Melissa, Texas, and as anyone would expect on a Sunday afternoon (or any weekend afternoon), the parking lot and the gas islands were full of cars. I parked in one of the furthest-away parking spaces and walked what seemed like nine miles to get in the building to use the restroom. Everybody and their dog was existent at that Buc-ee's. Two key takeways were very memorable, and it's amazing what you can find in a crowded parking lot. First, I see that the place can't have 18-wheelers, but can have people from a funeral home hang out in the lot. That's right, sports fans, a hearse! At Buc-ee's. And they had two guys just standing outside their funeral home vehicle, stopped behind a couple of parked cars. What they waited on is anyone's guess.

And the second takeaway? Coming out from inside, I spotted a bumper sticker on the back of an old sedan. A bumper sticker which reads: SAVE GAS -- Walk With Jesus. I like that! A little humor plus good spiritual insight. That made for a memorable experience on what, otherwise, was a road trip about nothing.

Life can have some surprising moments.
