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,

I Know That Buc-ee's Sometimes Gets Too Crowded, But....

Posted Yesterday at 08:26 PM by case44 (Welcome To Case's Column)
Updated Today at 08:59 AM by case44

....today it really got overcrowded. Lots of Interstate 35 traffic today in Temple, Texas, on my way back from Austin following a Texas Longhorns 4-3 baseball win over Texas Tech.

All I wanted to get was some gasoline at Buc-ee's, but even with about 90 pumps, every car had occupied one. That's right, every single pump had a car by it. Oh, and there were a few pumps where at least two cars were waiting for someone to finish using it. Look, I...

Making The Most Of A Road Trip

Posted 03-16-2019 at 10:09 PM by case44 (Welcome To Case's Column)

Or, perhaps, four.

I'll just be all over the place in the course of the next week. Austin, East Texas, Fort Worth, Granbury. And Ol' Case will just be soaking it all in. But that's what makes road trips something to behold. So many places and so many tastes. The things you remember. Those are all worth the effort and the initiative.

First, this Texas critter has to get some sleep. Y'all certainly don't want this guy all over the...

Case Wakes Up To The Time Change Sunday Wipeout

Posted 03-10-2019 at 10:15 AM by case44 (Welcome To Case's Column)
Updated 03-10-2019 at 11:55 AM by case44

Try as I may, there has to be a time to get in bed and a time to get out of it. After changing the clocks last night, Ol' Case finally got in the sack at 11:30 (under the old time).

This morning, I had to awaken at 5:40 so I can slowly get started before leaving the apartment one hour later to go out to breakfast in nearby Frisco. Nearly five hours of sleep were accounted for.................but it wasn't enough. I woke up tired, of course, but then again,...

Scattershooting Again / A Former Cowboy Decides To Ride Back In

Posted 03-04-2019 at 08:05 PM by case44 (Welcome To Case's Column)
Updated 03-07-2019 at 04:29 PM by case44

Here this writer goes again with another venture into this multi-tasking exercise known as Scattershooting, frequently right here on this cozy arcade called City-Data, where it's great to be alive. When you start to absorb this paragraph, then you can go to the next one. Good thing about America is, you can just take your sweet time as you read this.

Idle Thought About Upcoming Daylight Savings Time

Posted 03-02-2019 at 08:18 PM by case44 (Welcome To Case's Column)

Bizarre happenings are sometimes just a part of life as we know it. If it's going to happen, then it will. I'm pretty sure that some things that can only happen in dreams couldn't possibly take place in real life.

But let's just say, for grins, that with the upcoming Daylight Savings Time, which commences in a week, some type of event were to take place at a weird time. That weird time won't happen until November, when Daylight time will end. The time change...
