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,

Lubbock's Hotel Mystery And Suspense Deepens

Posted 12-29-2022 at 08:51 PM by case44 (Welcome To Case's Column)

A few days ago, I uncovered what had been a mystery on the Lubbock hotel landscape, and that might actually come to fruition once again. I shared in my recent Scattershooting about Downtown Lubbock plans for a convention center hotel and the possibility of it being back on after visiting the backburner.

Well, a local hospitality and planning website from the Hub City now shows that another project may possibly be on again. The TAJ website is shedding light on something...

Turning Lemons Into Lemonade At The Case Abode

Posted 12-29-2022 at 07:40 PM by case44 (Welcome To Case's Column)

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.

Tech Doing The Right Thing By Extending McGuire

Posted 12-28-2022 at 09:05 PM by case44 (Welcome To Case's Column)

Basically, the Big 12 will have a new face. Yes, we've also got TCU and Baylor and will lose Texas and Oklahoma, but that's why I'm bringing the following up.

The Texas Tech Red Raiders football team decided to give Head Coach Joey McGuire a real go at it. They've signed him to a six-year contract extension. This gives not only Tech some stability and time to build the program up the way it should be, but also to give a reworked Big 12 a face of the conference. And...

More Scattershooting / My New Obsession With The Flirtations

Posted 12-25-2022 at 11:02 AM by case44 (Welcome To Case's Column)
Updated 12-29-2022 at 08:28 PM by case44

It's time for more Scattershooting, right here and only right here on Case's Column because you have to know what's happening in your world. Things change, others stay the same, and others just aren't sure which way to go. And then, you readers just want more chocolate chip cookies for Christmas, don't you? I'll see what I can do.

For an R&B group that should have achieved more success than it has, and that's should have, The Flirtations...
