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!

The Curtain Rod Caper: Showers Of Blessing Or Cursing

Posted 01-19-2023 at 07:40 PM by case44

Living in an apartment does have its occasional frustrations. This writer is testament of that.

I just had a brand-new tub/shower put in by the good apartment maintenance folks. Subsequently, I had to replace the old shower curtain rod with a brand-new one, and I put that thing up, along with new curtain rings and a new curtain. It's all fine and good having that new rod, except for one thing:

The stupid rod won't stay up!

As what might be a band-aid, I couldn't find what I was really looking for at two places, and I decided --- for now --- to get a clamp from Home Depot to place on the telescopic crease on the shower rod to keep it from scooting in and, thus, falling off at both ends. Whichever happens, I'll have to deal with it, but hopefully, the clamp will anchor the telescopic part in place. Your favorite blogger did himself a favor and just order online. All I needed were two adhesive holders for both ends of the shower rod. I cannot get those which require screwing, as it's a ceramic tub and shower. Don't want to damage it, as it's sooooooo nice. Imagine Home Depot not even having self-adhesive rod holders for the tub. They have missed out. Home Depot's loss is Amazon's gain now.

What I've got to do in the meantime is just count the days until the sustenance can actually arrive. Hopefully, these holders can do the trick. Wish me well, but I don't have to tell you that.

    Problem solved.
