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,

case44

Taco Bueno Returning To Lubbock? All Signs Point To It

Posted Yesterday at 10:06 PM by case44 (Welcome To Case's Column)

Hard to believe that a taco franchise which started in Abilene and had become very successful there and most other places they've planted in would actually pull completely out of a city. But such is exactly what's happened in Lubbock as Taco Bueno once had a showing there, but would later succumb to its competition.

Yes, Taco Villa rules the roost locally in the Hub City, but that doesn't mean that competition isn't welcome there. It's a matter of how many customers actually...

Red River Is Nothing More Than A Mud Pit

Posted 04-15-2021 at 06:05 PM by case44 (Welcome To Case's Column)

In the parlance of road trips, there are beautiful swans and there are eyesores. On my recent near-epic trip to Oklahoma, I couldn't help but wince at the sight of the Red River.

That rascal is never filled with water.

All I keep seeing are little bitty puddles of water amidst a big trail of mud. It might as well be called The Red Mud Pile. Never in the history of ever have I seen the Red River completely filled up. At least, I don't...

The Best Place For Coffee: The Answer May Surprise You

Posted 04-09-2021 at 09:04 PM by case44 (Welcome To Case's Column)

Yes, I'm on vacation for a few (hopefully) long days, but that's not important now.

Ol' Case loves having breakfast out for a big part of the time, and there are many great places that serve great grub not far from where I live. And, of course, they all have coffee. Some serve better coffee than others, and sometimes the pot has such fresh stuff that even what's usually a mediocre cup can actually be good for a few sips. Often, your writer can sometimes...

Astros Off To A Good Start, But Still Lots Of Baseball Left

Posted 04-05-2021 at 07:26 PM by case44 (Welcome To Case's Column)

It's early, sure. But Houston Astros fans such as I have got to love the results right now.

The Astros just got started on 2021 with a sweep of the Oakland Athletics at the Coliseum in Cali. They are 4-0 and have become the fourth team in MLB history to score at least eight runs in each of their first four games. Nevertheless, off to a great start as they go to Anaheim for two against the Los Angeles Angels, and then return home to H-Town on Thursday against the...

Still Missing Grandstander --- And I Know You Do, Too

Posted 04-04-2021 at 08:26 AM by case44 (Welcome To Case's Column)

I don't usually highlight other fellow C-D members unless they've done something extraordinary for all of us, but I just want to take a moment to remember someone who was a respected contributor here on City-Data, where it's great to be alive.

Many of you remember our colleague Grandstander, who was a very fine poster for many years on this fine website. As baseball season commences, our Baseball forum isn't quite the same as it used to be because there is that void. When...
